Distant Planet

Written and Illustrated by
Anna Marie Burk

When three teenagers are pulled away from their home by a random-moving wormhole, they find themselves in a different solar system.  Only one planet can support life.  There, they struggle to blend in with a society that is emotion-driven and possibly violent.

Welcome to Earth!

This Moment

in Time

Written and Illustrated by
Anna Marie Burk
 

The Marpasians have been expanding their empire for generations, star system by star system. Their leaders are power hungry and relentless in their quest to dominate the universe. The government raises the young with this primary aim, and makes sure no emotional connection is made, even between parent and child.


Observers have discovered a lush planet orbiting an unremarkable yellow dwarf. If the planet is civilized and deemed worthy of their time and interest, Marpasia will invade. 

The High Command secretly installs three advance agents to gauge the inhabitants' vulnerabilities and report back. But the agents find themselves strangely affected by the strong emotions they encounter. And the one they find impossible to ignore is love.

(Excerpt. . . )

“What did he tell you?”

     “Everything.”

     He softly spoke her name and reached for her.

     She jerked away as if threatened by some awful creature. “Don’t touch me.”

     “It’s me, your husband.”

     “What are you? What kind of baby am I goin’ to have?”

     He slowly walked to the other side of the table and sat facing her. “After all the love we’ve shared, do you actually believe I’d hurt you?”

     Tears filled her eyes and some of the fear left. “He said you’re from another planet—his planet—and you’re not the same as any of us here . . . that you’re not what you appear to be.”

About the Author

Anna Marie Burk

Anna Marie moved to Arizona with her family when she was eight years old. 

“I’d seen only concrete in New York City, so I was fascinated with our big backyard of Arizona dirt.  I sat out there and made mud pies for hours, letting them bake in the hot desert sun.  I didn’t eat any of my beautiful pies but must confess I did try to tempt my little brother into taking a bite.  He was only five, but he knew better than to listen to anything I said.”

“We didn’t have a lot of money for toys or games, so we learned to use our imaginations.  Our neighbor worked for a company that manufactured evaporative coolers, and he brought home large, discarded but clean cardboard boxes.  Pencils and crayons soon changed the simple boxes into vessels that transported us to lands where dreams become real. 

“Our favorites were spaceships—no doubt inspired by the stories my mother’s youngest brother told us.  We were enthralled as Uncle Sam spun tales of space aliens he’d named ‘Nobblehead’ and ‘Joanie.’  He told his stories with such enthusiasm and drama that he was better than any television show, and we loved the time spent with our uncle.

“Now I use my imagination, honed years ago, to write and illustrate books for children.  I also write sci-fi for upper teens and adults, probably a leftover from my old spaceship days.
