Announcing My Novel!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that my novel, Emergence: A Journey of Friendship, Science, and Faith, is now available as an eBook! (The paperback version will be coming soon.)

Here is the link to purchase the eBook:  Emergence (ePUB format)
Kindle edition: Kindle

And here is the blurb that will be on the back cover of the paperback:

When Meg, a promising young scientist, meets Miriam, a biology professor with a devout belief in God, Meg finds her atheism challenged in new ways. As she and Miriam build a friendship, Meg begins to come to grips with the limitations of science and with events in her own life that have shaped her atheism. When she finally understands that science cannot be used to justify disbelief, Meg’s intellectual honesty compels her to examine the question of God afresh. But with her first steps of faith come new challenges, including complications in her budding romance with a fellow graduate student. When faced with an unexpected blow, will Meg emerge as a person of faith or be plunged back into disbelief?

This novel tackles issues at the science-religion interface and explores, through the story of Meg and her mentor, how science and faith can be compatible. It does not shy away from difficult issues but addresses them squarely from the standpoint of faithful belief and honest inquiry.

(And now I will get back to my regular posts and show you the diagram I promised you last time-- soon.)


  1. I have read this book in its early stages, and I found it thoughtfully and beautifully written. A gentle book which genuinely made me cry at the end, and it takes a lot to make me do that! Alisse writes with a compassionate voice. - Kristen McKendry, author
