Get ready for the ride of your life. The Tharsis Zone is as much fact as it is fiction. Jake McCulloch is an astronaut headed on a mission to Mars, unaware that his roots lie on a distant world thirty-four light years from Earth. What he and his fellow astronauts encounter upon landing on Mars can only be described as earth-shattering. The action never stops as they encounter old rivalries from Earth now on Mars. The fate of their home planet hangs in the balance when they discover an alien force with the power to turn their spaceship and the crew to dust. An epic battle ensues when the aliens are forced to defend their own world with Jakes help.

Author Biography

Barbara Vaka has been writing stories since the age of 10. Her first short story was science fiction and can be found in the back of this book. Tharsis Zone is her fifth published novel and a departure from her previous works. Nowhere is her passion for accuracy and adventure more evident than in this tale of discovery of a distant world inhabited by a human-like civilization The inspiration to write the novel came after meeting Dr. Robert Zubrin in Colorado. Zubrin was the architect of Mars Direct, a plan to send men to the red planet using the technology already available in the early 2000s. This book is dedicated to him. Perhaps if NASA had listened to Zubrin back then this story would have been science fact not fiction, Barbara said. Barbara lives with her husband of 50 years in Tampa, Fl along with their two cats. The couple have three children and four grandchildren. Her next book, Embroidered on the Heart is due out early 2019. It's time to commit to finding the answer, to search for life beyond Earth. Mankind has a deep need to explore, to learn, to know. We also happen to be sociable creatures. It is important for us to know if we are alone in the dark. Stephen Hawking
