The story is set in the near future and follows a group of seven young teenagers from different countries who, having discovered they have extraordinary powers, find themselves attending a school run by aliens.
In the early part of the twenty-first century Earth was visited by aliens from the Galactic Confederation. Thirteen years later these aliens reveal that they, and also some humans, have powers which in more primitive societies would be regarded as supernatural or magic. These powers are known as ‘The Ability’. People with the Ability make up the Navigator Guild who are the de facto rulers of the Galaxy.
Those rare teenagers with the Ability are chosen to become cadets attending Navigator School, where they are trained to develop and use their skills and finally become fully fledged Navigators.The main characters are Ralph and Laura, twins from Ireland; Kani, who is an Iraqi/Kurdish boy; Pippa and her dog Wags from California; Kanyin, a girl from Uganda; Jason, a boy from China; and Jack, a British boy with a mysterious background. ‘Contact’ covers their first year and I am currently writing the second book which follows them during their second year.

The bit at the back of the book
“In the newly discovered Earth, Ralph, Laura, Pippa and their friends are seemingly just ordinary thirteen year olds, whose parents like to keep a close eye on them. But they are not the only ones watching them. Why are some of the most powerful people in the Galaxy so interested in these seven teenagers? How would you react if you started developing almost supernatural abilities? What would your parents say if Aliens paid you a visit and invited you to go to their elite school? These teenagers are about to discover all that… and much more.“
