Prisoners of the Baroque

Four astrophysicists along with 50,000 other souls kidnapped from remote areas of Earth are abducted and taken aboard the slaver ship, Baroque to be sold at an alien auction.

About The Author

Ardyce’s love for books was born to replace friends. Growing up in the southwest her parents moved from town to town. The local library supplied her with endless relationships, some she holds near and dear today. The Old Man and the Sea stays by her bedside, although their love affair is relatively new. When an auto accident as a teenager kept her immobile for three months, the doctor’s banishment to the living room couch began her obsession with movies and television. (BTW, next to smart phones, streaming is the best invention of modern times.) The first science fiction movie she can remember viewing is The Day the Earth Stood Still.

She found the movie poster in Cannes, of all places, in 2006 and insisted on carrying it on the plane on her return flight home. Artie lives in Phoenix with her husband, three kids, and a menagerie of four legged family members. She is known for a wicked, sometimes inappropriate, sense of humor. Her kids do not think she is funny at all.

Ardyce Years is the author of the Brother 5 series which includes two novels, Brother 5 and Dancing Above the Moon, as well as novelettes Prisoners of the Baroque and The Ice Prisoner.

The Story Behind Brother 5

A story formed as a single thought on a warm autumn day in Mexico. Driving from Caborca to Puerto Penasco over bumpy roads, the jeep was loud, I couldn’t hear the radio or my husband talking. (It’s okay, he likes to talk and repeat himself, so it’s never a problem to catch up at a quieter time.) A what-if scenario incubated, molded into a story, and for a few weeks took several different shapes, most discarded, until put to paper…
