A tale of seismology, Druids, and an evil blonde.


ISBN 978-1479389469, Copyright 2013, Terrae Motus Books, trade paperback

Cologne, Germany.
Caitlin Schwarzbach has a new job. She has new friends. She also has new enemies. And a new boyfriend. Hagen von der Lahn owns a haunted castle, a title, and the sexiest smile she's ever seen.


Far from being settled, Caitlin's life has  become supernaturally complicated.


Long-term goal: Accept a new paradigm that includes Celtic deities and ancient curses.


Short-term goal: Choose between keeping her brother safe or learning the truth about her past and its implications for her future.


When she learns about the 'fracking' experiment in Cologne being conducted by her enemies, Caitlin's short-term goal becomes dangerously acute. 
Shaky Ground, the sequel to Primary Fault: a unique and gripping novel of suspense blended with contemporary fantasy and a generous portion of real-world science.
