Welcome to my website. Make yourself at home! My second book in the Aride universe is currently in editing. Yep. Finally going to get it done! In the meantime I have been painting. Check out my artwork on Fine Art America. My artwork is sold under my own name, Sandra Saylor Seaman.
The Color of Sunshine, book two in the Aride universe is coming soon!
Seeds of Change is a soft science fiction novel with a splash of mysticism and magic. It is a coming of age story with big themes, small pleasures, and an ensemble cast of characters living in a world you won’t want to leave.
Jey is an introverted, intuitive healer with nothing left to lose. All her healing skill couldn’t save her mother from a virulent manmade virus. The heat index of 2071 Earth has reached crippling levels. Jey is barely coping—until she stumbles upon an opportunity to join the crew of Two by Two, the first colony ship set to launch from the ailing Earth.
The mission—to create an idealistic artisan colony on an unexplored exoplanet—fits right in with Jey’s dreams. Her friendship with a clairvoyant child onboard the ship, her growing empathic abilities, and her bumbling attempts at love bring her hope. But when a rival corporation sabotages the ship, and their target planet is a blasted wasteland, Jey finds herself at the center of the conflict.
Can she set aside her old self destructive patterns born of a dysfunctional childhood? Can she take a leap into a new way of being—and seeing to save her colony? Join Jey and her shipmates on the journey to Aride to find out.
kind words from readers
This book is so positive and hopeful! It is the kind of book that you start to slow down as you reach the end because you don't want to leave the world you've fallen in love with. I can't wait for the sequels! I love that it focuses on homeopathy and using that to learn about the environment and ourselves." - Janine, Amazon UK
“I loved this story of Jey and her journey out to the stars and in to her self at the same time.... I particularly like the writing style, the language, and how the dialogue felt true to the characters who were speaking. As a first novel it was outstanding.” - Elissa Matthews, author of Where the River Bends
Engaging, positive, uplifting with a good story. The kind of book I like to read but is so difficult to find. - Andrew, Goodreads
“I loved this book from the instant I began reading it...Seeds of Change features a solid narrative arc, tiptoes between genres of fantasy, dystopian fiction, and sci-fi, clean smooth-flowing language that drew me in from start to finish, and, ultimately, some really nice feel-good vibes. A very enjoyable read!” - Angela Panayotopulos, author of The Wake Up
