Maria came to prominence reporting for Reuters during the Great Middle East War in 2018-2019. Was hired as Chief White House Correspondent at ANN by co-founder and college friend, Pete Rogers.

Maria lives in Arlington, VA with husband Jack. He works as a special assistant to the US Secretary of State. Maria and Jack met at a college freshman mixer. It was love at first sight.

Maria begins Anunnaki Awakening in a bit of funk. She wonders if there’s any meaning to our lives and she leans cynical about the future of humanity. So strong are her feelings, that she has consciously decided not to bring a child into this world.

Maria’s world changes when she asks a simple question about the meaning of life on Twitter. Her search for personal answers leads her to history’s biggest secret. She learns of two worlds on a collision course and her pivotal role in changing their future.

Following is an excerpt from Chapter 6 of Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation.

“Radio on. FM 100,” she said to the Mustang’s onboard computer.

The mix of Hawaiian and Reggae music put her in a tropical frame of mind. The familiar theme from the old X-Files TV show played, while an announcer shared the details of a UFO convention coming to Honolulu.

“Come and hear world-renowned UFO researcher Dr. Jaypee Escudero speak this Saturday in the Mid-Pacific Conference Center at Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki. Tickets are just $30.”

“Who believes in that nonsense?” Maria asked the radio, shaking her head. Money scam!”

Maria was skeptical of anything spiritual or metaphysical. Raised Catholic, the word God carried serious baggage for her. God represented father figure. The concept salted the wound left by a father she never knew.

Maria’s English teacher mom fell in love with an immigrant worker. By the time Maria showed up nine months later, he was long gone. He left his name Gomez, a baby, and a mountain of medical bills for her mother to pay on a teacher’s salary. Maria had no memory of him and she held God responsible.

To Maria, church symbolized the guilt her mother heaped upon herself and the cold, loveless judgment pronounced upon her. There was always someone there to tear her mother down or condemn her circumstance. They were always the target of whispers and abruptly ending conversations. They preached love, but rarely practiced it. Maria swore no one would ever treat her that way.

Maria atoned for the emptiness inside by over-achieving. In high school, she was an honor roll student, an all-state cheerleader, and the lead in the school musicals. The world saw her as successful, but she always felt like she was chasing a standard just beyond her reach. When the University of Texas offered the scholarship, she jumped at the chance to leave California and start over.

Everything changed at a freshman mixer her first week at UT. She saw Jack Love standing across the room. He was a beautiful man in every way. Her knees went week and the heart fluttered, but Maria was no shrinking violet. She marched right up to him and asked him to dance. She interrupted him debating three other guys about the virtues of retirement plan privatization proposed by the Bush Administration.

“Excuse me,” she remembered saying, “they play music at these bashes because they expect us to dance. I’m Maria.”

In five minutes, she felt destiny’s clock ticking and Jack had forgotten about the day’s politics. They danced all night and that was that. Maria wanted to be in love. Jack provided an escape from that world of shame and guilt back in California.

Jack was Austin born and raised. He and his family seemed so stable, happy, and welcoming. Politically, they leaned a little right for her tastes, but they were wonderful people. Jack’s two older sisters were both married with children.

For the Loves, every Sunday revolved around church. They were Baptist and Maria attended church with them every week for almost four years. Maria enjoyed the change in energy from the Catholic Church to the Baptist. Still, church was something she did not something she felt. Feelings risk hurt. Maria avoided them whenever possible.

They were engaged junior year and married a month after graduation. Jack majored in political science. His uncle was a former U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Maria majored in journalism and minored in ancient near eastern cultures. She wanted to be a journalist because a journalist could change the world, or so she thought.

With Jack’s connections and aspirations to be “in the game,” Washington D.C. seemed like the perfect location for the young couple. Maria went to work for a D.C. television station as a political reporter. Jack quickly used his connections to land a job on Capitol Hill.

Jack’s faith was rock solid. He relished church, but attended only sporadically. Sunday was a workday in a Congressman’s office. Maria only insisted that they attend Easter Mass. She didn’t know why. She felt some strange “Catholic” obligation to do so. Jack was happy to comply with this simple request.

Maria arrived in Washington a wide-eyed idealist. She believed politics, not religion, could redress the world’s ills. A brief time on the Washington inside, quickly dissuaded her from that conviction. She witnessed corruption and greed from Republicans who presented themselves as “of God” to please their constituents back home and hypocrisy from Democrats who positioned themselves as bastions of human ethics and compassion. When the doors were closed and the lobbyist dollars flowed, few lived up to either ethos.

Maria’s faith in humanity took another hit when she covered the Great Middle Eastern War for Reuters. She witnessed neighbor turn neighbor like animals over bread scraps and water rations. She watched people do unspeakable things in the name of their God paradigms. Human beings, she concluded, have this need to be right, always, no matter the cost. Human beings fight to be right. They die to be right. Most of all human beings kill to be right.

Maria returned from the experience determined not to bring a child into this world.

Keep seeking. Keep questioning.
