After Jesse meets Aurelius, an alien from Planet Erebus, she discovers a secret that will throw her into the middle of an age-old war with the Celphians, who desires to extinguish the hybrid-infested human race. Danger and mayhem await them at every turn. To make matters worse, her mother is being held captive on Planet Celphi.
Or is she?
Ginger Gelsheimer became part of the surf & ski writing team in 2009, when the Aurora Conspiracy franchise came to life over a great bottle of vino. What if he lived? We wondered about the alien that crashed into a windmill in 1897... and that's how Aurelius was born.
With writing partner Christina Keats, Ginger took a leap of faith and embarked on her own adventure of a lifetime with the Aurora Conspiracy trilogy, kicking her corporate job to the curb. Together, these ladies have explored the outer limits of where life could actually take them. The freedom and boundary-less adventure in Aurora Conspiracy has truly become a reflection of the freedom they have demanded and achieved in their lives.
Ginger has also started another series called The Dark Days, which is loosely based on a prequel to The Hunger Games. She has written three episodes so far with her daughter, Taylor Anderson.
Ginger lives in Tampa, Florida where the ocean inspires imagination. She lives with Taylor and a house full of black furry animals and four huge fish in the pond.
Stories, movies, writing and the world of creativity have always been a part of Christina's life and in 2009 things took a natural shift. The formation of the "Surf & Ski writing team" set things in motion with her writing partner, Ginger, when Aurora Conspiracy came to life.
A warm Colorado evening and the curiosity of the unknown led to the birth of Jesse, Aurelius and the truth. The Aurora Texas crash in 1897 may be known throughout the world but the true facts of what really happened are not. Hence, the quest to bring out the truth and its possibilities began.
From that moment on, they explored these possibilities through the wild legends and great heroes of Earth, time and space. This adventure continues to unfold between the coast of Florida and the Rockies of Colorado, and this Surf & Ski team are excited to share these new stories with you!
Christina lives her life with true passion and where all things are due a good exploration. Living in Colorado and an undeniable nature fanatic, Christina finds her solace in her home, her family and her spirit for life's possibilities, believing nothing is impossible and nothing is untouchable.
We came up with the idea for Aurora Conspiracy on one of our “make sure to stay friends by seeing each other frequently” visits in Colorado. Some good wine and great chatter left us yearning for more than normal conversation. As we settled into the alien and conspiracy TV shows that have always peaked our interest, it was as if direct message flew in and plopped right down beside us. One particular story about a spaceship that crashed in Aurora, Texas in 1897, caught our attention. The evidence that it had actually happened was overwhelming - you had to try hard not to believe it. We thought “what if he lived?” ...and the next minute, Aurelius was born. Now, he is our muse, renting space in our heads, and he is LOUD and “high-maintenance”, demanding that his story gets told.
That sunny and relaxing evening turned into a high-energy night with high-speed momentum. We had no idea it would lead to a project we will probably work on for a decade. From the one story we grew and began to intertwine other conspiracies and events from history into an epic journey that runs through generations of the Proctor family who nursed Aurelius back to health when he originally crashed.
The read the first three episodes of the Aurora Conspiracy. And they are episodes as they read very much like scripts, very short and heavy with dialog. As such, they are well done. My only concern is that everyone is so friendly. Very basically, the background of the story is that two warring races of space aliens are intent on destroying the “human mistake” while individual aliens are trying to save the human race. I would have liked to see someone freak out that there were aliens walking among them. But everyone welcomed them with open arms and a warning that other people aren’t so friendly. Perhaps it changes in later episodes as I noticed that there is a lot of foreshadowing; people met in passing become important later on. Normally I a completely against cliffhangers and incomplete novels, but this story has drawn me in and I will be getting the next episodes. I give this 4 stars. * * * *
