Over six novel length parts, Changels Genesis is a new kind of YA story, a science fiction action-adventure in a contemporary setting. Its about the origins of the Changels – six minority psychic teens from all over the world, empowered to teleport into the world’s most dangerous places to safeguard other teens who, in the future, will prevent a terrible war. It’s a fictional adventure story with mystery and romance but a core of non-fiction truth. Changels Genesis explores real world themes of genetic inheritance, prejudice and genocide mixing fact and fantasy such that, at times, it’s hard to tell the difference.
Your home is a smoking ruin and everyone you love or trust is missing presumed dead. You’re fourteen, alone, and the only survivor of an odd community regarded as UFO freaks. The cops are used to interviewing minorities like you and they want answers, but if you tell the truth they’ll think you’re insane. Except maybe one cop – the lesbian youth aid detective who doesn’t know her girlfriend is dumping her. Because you know to escape the aliens closing net you’re going to need all the help you can get.
Part One of Changels Genesis, Initiation is the beginning of two stories: How Sam Kahu, a young Maori teen from Northland, fled his drug dealing gangster father and became a Changel; and how lesbian detective constable Sue Williams became part of the most incredible secret war on Earth.

Sam tells Sue how he came to Renwick House carefully leading her from the shallows of Earth’s strangeness, with stories of how his friends from around the world came to New Zealand, into the depths, and the story of how Dr Prosperov’s science experiments shook two worlds.
Hiding from deadly alien infiltrators Sam tells detective Sue Williams how six minority families, all needing refuge, and all with one psychic teenager ended up coming to live and work for the mysterious Russian financier Dr Gennady Prosperov at haunted Renwick House.
