THE DELPHI BLOODLINE :
"Present day descendants of the ancient, psychically powerful Delphi bloodline face the threat of extinction when an evil tycoon hunts them for his own nefarious intent, a global spy network.
When artist Athena Butler, the modern-day descendant of a powerful, ancient bloodline of psychic women, realizes she’s the target of mysterious and dangerous kidnappers, she gets help from strange sources—the spirit of an ancient ancestor and a handsome man who claims to be one of her bloodline’s Guardians. Her mental powers and his brawny skills keep them one step ahead of the mastermind behind these kidnappers. Until the time when an FBI task force decides to use Athena as bait."

( Interview of Michael Drake, the tech tycoon who wants to control and enslave the Bloodline )
Interviewer : You’re a billionaire, the owner of D.I.E., Drake International Enterprises. What does your corporation make?
Drake : All kinds of high-tech products, from cyborgs to unmanned aerial vehicles, military drones. You name it, we make it. Silicon Valley is the brain center of the high-tech industry.
Interviewer : You’re a single man with more money than you need. Billions! Why haven’t you married? I’m sure lots of women would love to be married to a billionaire.
Drake : That’s the problem. I’m drawn to exceptional people. Who DON’T NEED ME.
Interviewer : What made you think that true psychics would work for you?
Drake : Women in the Delphi Bloodline, as they call themselves, work for police departments for nothing. Why not work for me and make millions? There are governments and agencies all over the world that need their talents.
Interviewer : Doing what?
Drake : Corporate spying, intelligence of all kinds. Those women can do what the men of the CIA’s Stargate Program couldn't do. And a hundred times better.
Interviewer : And if they don’t want to work as spies? What then?
Drake : Then I convince them they have no choice. You've heard this before, I make them an offer they can’t refuse.
Interviewer : You’d go that far?
Drake : Whatever it takes. How do you think I got where I am today? Just a matter of time and the Delphi Bloodline is mine.
My pen name is Donna Del Oro and I live in Northern California near the Sierra Nevada foothills and Folsom Lake. After retiring from high school teaching, I decided life was too short to waste. Thus, began a journey doing what I'd been wanting to do for many years--write fiction.
I sold my first novel, OPERATION FAMILIA, right away and this book went on to win an award for the Best 2010 Latino Books into Movies Award. Following that first sale, I published three more women's fiction books, then branched out into writing my first love, romantic thrillers.
This year, 2012, saw the launch of A BODYGUARD OF LIES and THE DELPHI BLOODLINE, both ebooks and available on Kindle, Nook, Apple, and elsewhere. If you have read any of my books, I welcome your input. Leave me a review on Amazon and your name goes into a pile for a $50 gift card at B&N, my favorite bookstore.
