Poseidon’s Atlantis Adventure: The Human Hybrid Experiment follows Poseidon as he
travels through time, faces ethical dilemmas, and experiences the wonders of an
advanced technological world.

What was the inspiration for the setup of your story?
The inspiration for Poseidon’s Atlantis Adventure: The Human Hybrid Experiment is the
backstory of my first novel, Einstein’s Compass: A YA Time Traveler Adventure. I wondered
how young Albert Einstein came up with his miracle theories. He lived during the horse
and buggy days with the light bulb being the latest technology. Maybe he was from
Atlantis and was trying to remember what he did as a priest-scientist in Atlantis. Albert’s
soul is from Atlantis in the character Arka. Arka has an evil twin Raka. My editor said
people wanted to know more about Atlantis. She encouraged me to write a series on

According to legend, Poseidon created Atlantis. Research into Greek mythology shows Poseidon’s story begins with the war of the Titans. The sibling rivalry after the war gave the god of the sea a reason to seek a new life path. In reading Greek history, Greeks often projected human behaviors onto the gods. I wanted my readers to relate to the gods, especially Poseidon, so I gave him human behaviors.

What were some of the trials that you felt were important to highlight the characters’ development?
What if Poseidon, a god with powers, had a moral code? What were his vulnerables, loves, imperfections?Displaced from his homeland of Greece, what did he want?

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book? 
Is it possible our human race of different cultures comes from the stars? Could Atlantis be the human hybrid experiment of the stars that went wrong? Theme of Altruism vs. Selfishness, power vs. force, good vs. evil. Family dynamics, sibling rivalry, spiritual path vs. science.

Can you tell us a little about where the story goes in book two, and when the novel will be available?
Poseidon’s Atlantis Adventure Book Two: The culture of people into the Atlantean Way begins “What if Poseidon’s trident is stolen?” The firestone crystal is discovered and installed as the power source of Atlantis.
