The LearnerThe Learner

An alien from the dark side of the universe is sent to Earth on a mission. She’s called a Learner. When she falls in love with a human -- which is against her species’ covenants of exploration -- her rulers order her to leave him. She refuses, risking not only the successful outcome of her mission on Earth, but also her life as well as the life of the man she loves.

Purchase The Learner on Amazon!


Alan NayesAbout Author Alan Nayes

I live in Southern California, but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I’ve resided in California since the mid-1980s but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels -- GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL -- are biomedical thrillers. Actually, THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.

My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs, Green Bay Packers. Sorry, Cowboys, but when GB is not on the gridiron -- Go Dallas! Great cheerleaders, too!

I enjoy the outdoors and, as a side note, I’m one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin’s chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer? Probably not.

When I’m not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Alan Nayes is the author of GARGOYLES, THE UNNATURAL, BARBARY POINT, GIRL BLUE, and SMILODON.
