Danger "Danny" Danielle Warren is used to falling and having accidents happen. After losing one of her eyes during a childhood accident, she had to relearn her perception of movement and space. Before the accident, Danny used to take chances and go on adventures. Now, she keeps her head down, focuses on school, and works to make everyone else happy. She feels that her parents' divorce was her fault and if she would fit their perfect mold that things would better.

When her dad offers Danny to join him to film an episode for her birthday, Danny is excited about the opportunity to prove her worth. Plus, she wouldn't mind spending a few days with the hottest teen movie idol, Gus Price either. However, when their plane crashes in the Amazon, and Danny manages to survive the crash along with a few of the crew members, she will learn a few new things about her life. While navigating the Amazon with her father, she realizes a harsh truth about the parent she worships and dealing with a terrible secret. Will Danny be able to rely on her inner strength to guide her home?

The Speed of Falling Objects
by Nancy Richardson Fischer
Publisher: Inkyard Press
Release Date: October 1st 2019
Genre: Young Adult


From the author of When Elephants Fly comes an exceptional new novel about falling down, risking everything and embracing what makes us unique. Don't miss this compulsively readable novel about the most unlikely of heroes.

Danger "Danny" Danielle Warren is no stranger to falling. After losing an eye in a childhood accident, she had to relearn her perception of movement and space. Now Danny keeps her head down, studies hard, and works to fulfill everyone else's needs. She's certain that her mom's bitterness and her TV star father's absence are her fault. If only she were more-more athletic, charismatic, attractive-life would be perfect.

When her dad calls with an offer to join him to film the next episode of his popular survivalist show, Danny jumps at the chance to prove she's not the disappointment he left behind. Being on set with the hottest teen movie idol of the moment, Gus Price, should be the cherry on top. But when their small plane crashes in the Amazon, and a terrible secret is revealed, Danny must face the truth about the parent she worships and falling for Gus, and find her own inner strength and worth to light the way home.


I'm a published author with children's, teen and adult titles including: The Golden Globe, Lyric's World and Promises (Junior Jedi Knights Trilogy) for LucasFilm (Berkeley Press), Feel No Fear, The Power, Passion and Politics of a Life in Gymnastics (Hyperion), Monica: From Fear to Victory (HarperCollins), A Journey: The Autobiography of Apolo Anton Ohno (Simon & Schuster), Nadia Comaneci: Letters to a Young Gymnast (Basic Books), and Winning Every Day with Shannon Miller (Bantam Books). 

I've written for a circus, a graduate school, tried my hand at waitressing (I was terrible!), baking carrot cakes (I was messy but good!), and been lucky enough to ultimately do what I love - write.

I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our mostly wonderful (but sometimes vorpal) Vizsla. When I'm not conjuring a story, I love to kite-board, bike, ski or plan adventures with my two guys, who both make me laugh for different reasons and are the best partners in fun a gal could ever imagine.
