Jessica Kotlarz, a former massage therapist with her own practice and married mother of two who enjoys outdoor activities with friends and family in her home state of Minnesota, has completed her new book “The Cleomene’s Cure: Book One”: a gripping and potent story of friendship, love, and moral leadership on an embattled planet.

A mysterious disease called Maclaria is randomly taking the lives of the species Cleomenes on planet Epsilon. As more and more Cleomenes become infected, desperation begins to take over logic. The rebels believe that the leaders of Epsilon are infecting innocent Cleomenes as a way of controlling population. They will stop at nothing to try to take down the base where the leaders live, but by taking down the base, they are only sabotaging any chance of finding a cure.

With the world looking to Captain Viktor Demetrious for answers, it can be more than one man can take. Captain Viktor believes that the cure can be found outside their planet’s shield, which they unfortunately cannot get through without disintegrating. As Viktor becomes closer to finding a cure, he realizes he will not be able to do it without the help of his gifted niece Zara Demetrious, and he becomes desperate to motivate her. Just how far will he go? And what will he cause her to give up for the greater good of the planet? After Viktor reveals a lifelong secret on how they found just enough antidote to cure one Cleomene, it leaves Zara with a moral decision on whether she wants to take on the mission. Will she risk the lives of an innocent species outside their planet to save Cleomenes?

As Zara's passion for finding a cure grows stronger, she comes across a discovery that forces her to decide between losing her best friend Delsin, or continue with her uncle Viktor's mission. As the rebels increase in size and strength, time is running out, and detrimental decisions that affect the lives of many must be made. With a love triangle forming during the heat of the battle, and the weight of the world now resting on Zara's shoulders, her life will never be the same.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jessica Kotlarz’s tale is a fast-paced interplanetary fantasy in which the race for a cure to a deadly disease is compromised by complex moral dilemmas.
