Desert Blueshift is metaphysical science fiction romance novel incorporating elements of change, growth, and expansion of consciousness. It is also an action adventure and a story of love.
A mysterious sphere lands in the Arizona desert. The trail of ash and sparks that follows the sphere through the atmosphere wreaks havoc in San Diego, drawing together a homeless man and a doctor as they hide from the falling embers.
The trail of embers is also seen further to the east by an actor escaping from Hollywood, and a waitress in the desert town of Gila Bend.
When the sphere crashes to earth in the desert, it destroys the tent housing a religious revival. The preacher escapes. The parishioners don't. The scam artist preacher flees, but is struck by a singular episode of guilty conscience.
The waitress, Ginny, is concerned for her friend and colleague, Sally, who misses work without calling in. Ginny goes to Sally's house after work, only to find her held captive by Sally's husband. He captures Ginny as well and decides to take the two women into the desert to 'put them out of his misery.'
These characters are all drawn, whether consciously or subconsciously, to the site where the sphere lands.
Soldiers from the Casa Blanca Military Base are dispatched to assess the sphere, to ascertain whether it is a meteor or something more sinister.
It turns out to be much more than the government or anyone else expects.
