Not Just A Girl


Not Just A Girl

A Richie & Roxanne Novel written by Reynold Akison

Not Just A Girl tells the story of Roxanne Friend a human visitor from the Alpha Centauri star system. Her mission is to bring a new technology to Earth and return to the starship in a stationary orbit around the planet Jupiter. But when she shuts down the drive on her spacecraft the most important part of her navigational system disintegrates.

If Roxanne is going to make the rendezvous with the starship, she must accept the aid of those she has come to live amongst and ask them to help her build a replacement part for her spacecraft using the new technology she has brought. And she is sworn to keeping her real identity a secret at all costs.

Soon after Roxanne arrives, she meets Richie and Danny. They become rivals for her attention and affections. But either of them help her complete her mission, or will she be fated to be marooned on Earth forever?

Not Just A Girl is set in Colorado in 1986. It is the first book in a series of novels about Richie & Roxanne. If you like reading stories with a hint of science-fiction; that have a strong female character; stories that explore female-male relationships, and feature an “alien-living-among us” and can appreciate a subplot involving a conspiracy that includes government and big business, Not Just A Girl may be just what you’re looking for. Please give the novel a try.
