The De-Coding of Jo: Hall of Ignorance is a meld of fantasy, paranormal and science fiction, with a strong appeal to young adult readers (15+). It is the first book of the Ascending Angel Academy series, incorporating plot driven and coming of age stories of diverse, gender inclusive teenagers struggling with self-identity and a sense of belonging.  (Trigger warning, violence)

When a demonic parasite turns her classmates into an army of sleepwalkers, sixteen-year-old Jo must confront her celestial identity and reveal the mystery of existence. With the help of her best friends and a Galactic Compass, Jo unleashes the cosmic powers of creation to prevent the Lord of Darkness from enslaving all of humanity into obscurity. 

Will she be able to decode the artificial system in time to save her friends and the sacred Light?

“Jo, are you awake? You can’t be late for school again!” The sound of her father’s voice snapped her out of the horrific nightmare. Jo felt enormous relief wash over her entire body. This had become her sleeping ritual since that fateful night three months ago, when her mother, Lilac, was taken hostage by a homicidal maniac.

“Yes, dad, I’m awake,” she muttered in a hoarse voice. Jo felt like her body had been dragged through a war zone. She was a mess, drained and exhausted. Jo could not focus on her mundane daily routine or even school, for that matter. She was not in the right frame of mind to write her science test. Her marks at school were pathetic, and at this rate, Jo worried about passing the tenth grade. She needed to score some sleeping pills if she was going to make it through this semester.

She reached under her bed and grabbed the glass bong she had been given by her friends for her birthday. Jo needed to take the edge off before facing humans. It took all her energy to sit up on her bed and take a couple of bong hits before deciding which mask to wear for the outside world.

Jo loved her family and was grateful for her parents, especially after her mother Lilac had survived the horrific ordeal, but they were always in her space. She could not confide in anyone about her frequent nightmares. She did not understand why it felt so real.
