Official Review of Aegis Incursion by The US Review of Books

Apr 15, 2015

Aegis Incursion received a RECOMMENDED rating from The US Review of Books. Here's an excerpt from the review: (click on image for the full review on The US Review of Books website)

"Where the first book excelled in building a mythology and a legend capped with an exciting showdown, the sequel provides nearly cover-to-cover action that never loosens its hold on the reader. Once the wheels of the plot begin turning, it isn't long before kidnappings, explosions, gunfire, fearful monsters, shadowy ringleaders, and espionage begin unfolding across dozens of chapters and multiple U.S. states. There are occasional moments where the story comes up for air, but with new characters both good and bad and more build-up to the inevitable tipping point of the world, the action is the clear focal point here. A good sequel stands alone as a strong work without the accomplishments of its predecessors, but a great sequel inspires readers to go back and relive a book they've already read, and that is precisely what this book accomplishes."

Author treks to St. Thomas - Town that Vanished in 1938

July 12, 2014

S.S.Segran trekked through the arid landscape outside Lake Mead, Nevada in search of the 19th century town of St.Thomas that vanished underwater in 1938 when the valley was flooded during the construction of Hoover Dam, forcing the inhabitants to flee their homes.


The town re-emerged recently as water levels at Lake Mead dropped in the past few years. Trekking for almost two hours in 113F (45C) heat the author finally found the ruins of the town scattered in the desert. After surveying the site, she photograhed the remains of the once thriving village. This ghost town will play a significant role in Book Two of the Aegis League Series.
