“Marty’s Dark Matter carries off the splendid achievement of seamlessly melding psychological drama, epic family saga, murder mystery, self-awareness, and deep philosophical musings on life, the hereafter, creation, religion and the meaning of life into an increasingly immersive and gripping story”
–Andrew Stephens, Editor for WiDo Publishing
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
“Yeah,” Bobby continued, “but if we could take a spaceship to the middle of the galaxy, we’d never age.”
“If our theory is right,” Kat said putting the truck in gear. “It seems that measurement of time is just an illusion of the physical universe’s outward expansion.”
Marty looked out the side window and watched the sun rise in the east flooding warm light across the fields. She thought about all the ragweed she’d be pulling from the potato patch until that same sun set in the west. Time felt all too real.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“A book worth reading a second time”
This fictional account of a girl with autism growing up in a small town and the secret she carries through adulthood keep the reader turning pages. The author slips smoothly between the drama of the story line, the scientific aspect and the spiritual world. There is something to appeal to everyone in this book and it can be recommended to friends who have a variety of reading tastes. It would be a good book for discussion and possibly a book club selection as there is ample material for speculation and varying opinions.
“Good story, and also makes you think”
This book is a fun mix of quality storytelling and thought-provoking reflections. Marty is unlike any character I’ve encountered in a novel previously. Definitely worth a read!
Fantastic! From an interesting beginning, captivating middle and twisted end, I was completely satisfied. This book has everything I love and more. Mystery, romance, suspense, real life issues, and so much more. The authors views on science and religion really gives me pause and so much more to consider and think about. I will highly recommend this book to family and friends.
AUTHOR M. KASEY
Faith and the purpose of life greatly matter to M. Kasey. When reading A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson, Kasey recognized similarities and numerous connections between the symbolism in scripture and modern scientific theory. This began a ten-year research project and the pursuit of writing to convince others. As a schoolteacher, she learned the best way to teach that which is technical is to wrap it in an interesting analogy.
M. Kasey is known for her fictional stories. When young and sitting around the campfire in Yellowstone Park, cousins begged her to tell just one more story, the more mysterious the better.
