Jaleta Clegg is a local author from Utah. Her most recent work Nexus point contains ship, explosion and the feudal age (in laymen terms, the dark ages).
excerpt from her book:
When Captain Dace crash lands on a primitive planet, she finds herself on the run from villagers who are sure she’s a demon and the Patrol, who’s sure she’s a smuggler. Accused of piracy, facing death or worse at the hands of those who should be rescuing her, she must find not only some way to survive but also escape. Unfortunately, the world has other plans….
Jaleta (jay let ah) is not only candid and a geek, she is a great asset to the written word.
