Johnson has dreamed of writing a science fiction fantasy novel since he was a child. He draws inspiration and motivation from Chicago’s tall buildings that reach toward the stars. Raystar of Terra: Peace. Love. Family. War. chronicles the adventures of Raystar, a 13-year-old resident of the sleepy agricultural planet Nem. Raystar leads a near picture perfect existence until her world radically changes when the pan-Galactic conflict that everyone thought was long over shows up on her doorstep. In a blink, Raystar discovers that she has immense powers and that her very survival is threatened. To live and protect those she loves, she must learn to control the tremendous powers at her disposal. To save humanity, she needs to unlock the secrets of her legacy and to save herself, she must figure out what it means to be human.
