"Laura come with me,” said Israfel, “if you are not happy, I will bring you back!" Laura, an American rancher who raises horses in rural BC with her musician husband, Jesse lead a rather quiet life. One day while out riding her horse in the wilderness, she discovers a crash landing of some sort of aircraft that is not of this earth, bearing three passengers that are equally mysterious and otherworldly. The decisions she makes within the next few moments become life altering. Laura promises to help them heal from their injuries, stay hidden from government authorities, and return to their people. So begins a long adventure full of secrets, military investigations, and betrayals. Israfel is a science fiction romance set in the beautiful British Columbia interior that is perfect for Canadian and American readers who are interested in soft science fiction with a slow-burn romance.

Anthea McLean was eight years old when she won her first writing competition, and it spurred a lifelong love of writing and creating art. Since then, she has won many provincial writing contests; she was also very active in writing reports and articles for the Vernon, B.C. newspaper and CJIB radio station. Israfel is her second published work written nearly 50 years ago. It proves that age has no bounds to pursuing your dreams of being a published author and continuing to do what you love in life. She currently resides in West Kelowna, B.C., where she continues to remain active and live independently.
