)-- Book three “Beyond Phobos” completes the story of an agricultural scientist from Mars, who faces unprecedented challenges to feed a growing space colony. Fearing starvation, she takes things into her own hands and travels back to Earth to access the Svalbard Seed Vault on a remote Norwegian arctic archipelago. Her efforts to gain precious crop seeds unravel however after her ship crashes off course on a nearby glacier known as Spitsbergen. Caught in a dangerous tug-of war between a Russian Special-Ops team and Norwegian special forces, the plot thickens as Dr. Lirren Lamarr must learn to persevere in the face of danger, amid men, dogs, and drones who battle over a past and future locked in ice and snow.
Van Kramer says, "Running at full speed this book cements a must-read space opera that captures the reader in thrilling locations, classic adventure, chivalric romance and exciting action. Set in a technologically advanced future beginning on Mars, emotional conflicts and personal interests arise revealing a strong heroine who emerges with real human frailties. I have a fondness for courageous, misunderstood risk takers like my main protagonist — Dr. Lirren Lamaar, who consistently face trouble, yet all too capable, handles it well despite the vast unknowns that surround her. We should all daydream of such a future, a heroine, and who we could be in such times of uncertainty."
With a BA in Graphic design from the University Of Florida, Van Kramer works as a designer for Ashley Furniture’s ecommerce office in Ybor City, and continues writing, working towards future publications.
