The Peak Experiment

It’s the year 2045.

Carla Castillo is a senior cadet at the Unified Military Academy, an undergraduate military university where all student compete for military assignments at graduation.

Class standing matters, and Carla wants to stay at the number one position.

In their ‘Final Exercise’, Carla and her fellow cadets are dropped into a hundred-acre training forest, forced to navigate assigned coordinates and complete tactical tasks.

However, there’s something abnormal about this year’s exercise.

Carla and the others begin to feel and act erratically … and cadets start to die …

Is it murder?

Determined to find out why things went horribly wrong in the exercise, Carla embarks on a journey that plunges her into the depths of a government conspiracy: a clinical drug trial in a race to produce Profyde, a performance-enhancing drug meant to give soldiers an edge.

In her attempts to share her findings and bring down those responsible, Carla ultimately learns that ethics are not always black and white, and there’s more to being a soldier than doing what she’s told.

But can she, a senior, go up against a once admired military leader and a team of superiors who are part of the malfeasance?

About Diana

Hi there, welcome to my site. I’m a writer and reserve military officer with a day job. I write fiction, professional essays on military topics, and wax philosophical about books and movies here on my site.

I’m so happy to share with you my debut novel, The Peak Experiment, loosely inspired by my experiences at the Naval Academy and in the Marine Corps, but otherwise entirely a work of fiction.

I live in Florida with my husband, two kids, and two cats.
