A pseudonym used by Maggie Toussaint
Formerly a contract scientist for the U.S. Army and a freelance reporter, Southern author Rigel Carson, the pen name of Maggie Toussaint, is a multi-published, award-winning author in suspense and mystery fiction. Her background in environmental science and toxicology, as well as years spent doing water research, provided the impetus for this new science fiction/ecothriller series set in a futuristic Earth.
Her series about The Guardian of Earth highlights human responses to dire problems on the planet in the not-so-distant future. In G-1, planetary resources and epidemics are used by a secret society to assume planetary control. In G-2, an alien race arrives with the intent of harvesting humans. In G-3, hitchhikers in a meteor storm wreak havoc on Earth and turn the ocean to sludge.
