Saga of the Starduster

Skinny Dipping on an alien world was probably not their best idea.

Skinny Dipping on an alien world was probably not their best idea.  A planet supposedly devoid of sentient life left the crew wondering if their definition of sentient should be revisited.

Hijacked from the International Space Station, Don finds himself the “guest” of a race of beings who patrol the galaxies looking to maintain some modicum of law and order.  Shot at as they came nearby the Earth’s moon, the captain wants to know who shot at him, and why?

Discovering the Space station, he decides to bring it inside one of their cargo bays.

Don, a willing participant, goes on board.  During the initial medical examination, their doctor learns of cancer inside Don’s lung.  Creating a virus to attack the cancerous tumor; things go badly as she had never treated humans.

Uploading his conscious to one of their computers, their team works feverishly to save his failing body. Don learns all about them in their virtual reality computer.  Their doctor attaches her mind to his via this machine, to learn that Don had a beautiful mind and spirit.

Emotions were abandoned in their culture, but she was allowed to experience them.  For the first time in her long life, falling in love and experience what love was, the story will have you laughing, loving and crying as the two races meld; finding common ground.

Not to worry, there are no sad endings, but this ending is a surprise that you might not see coming!

Hole In time

Just when you think you have it figured out, physics changes.

Sitting next to folks at lunch or the local Starbucks I noticed that many of you read.

Carving out a slice of time from your hectic day to take a small mental vacation, I came up with this series for you Sci-Fi buffs

Episode 1 through 9 are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited meaning you can probably read them for free.

The Pilot episode is on your standard Amazon, Apple, Barns and Nobles and so on.  Since it is the pilot and pulls the story together, for marketing sake, it needed to be widely distributed.

The series took about six months or so to create, the feedback has been awesome and the readership rather robust.   If you are one of them, Thanks so much!

Ben and his crew of the Brooking haul cargo from one stop to another while traversing the galaxy. After picking up some rare mineral on Treglia, a planet in the outer reaches of the universe, things take unpredictable twist and turns.

We meet earth’s early ancestors as well as ancient Martians as we float through each episode.

Ben finds himself the last human male alive on a ship full of women.  Does the race die off or does Ben and his crew think outside the box?

These are all lunchtime reads so let me know what you think!

The artwork was created on an IPad Pro, with different art software currently available on Itunes.
The story is a product of an overactive imagination always asking “what if” and Red Bull!

While there, check out my other novels.  Currently, I am working on a novel with Dragons, Witches, Shamans, Pirates, and Sirens  …

The Ailani Trilogy

My signature series is the Ailani Trilogy

Tina, a somewhat frustrated Divorcée decides to become a recluse only going to work and out when necessary.  At home with her cat “Mr. Whiskers,” Tina becomes content in her misery.

Taking on the nickname of “SHREW” around the office her loyal friends decide to get her out of the house.

Bud Grayson, son of the capitalist Carl Grayson unexpectedly becomes the sole owner and operator of Grayson Enterprises when Carl and his wife Sara are murdered in Southern Africa.  Embroiled in controversy, Bud receives a written threat warning him to pull out of all deals with the diamond mine, or he will be next.

While Carl and Sara had employees who were secretly hired to keep Bud safe, Bud removes Grayson Enterprises from the deal, focusing more on domestic opportunities.

His housekeeper, covertly trained by the Swiss guard as a bodyguard tires of seeing the young man spending his life working while not enjoying any of the fruits of his labors.  She encourages Bud to go out where He runs into Tina.

Fate plays into the story as the two hit it off over a game of billiards.

Unknown to Tina, her tears contain an aphrodisiac which will only affect those from another time and realm.

The trilogy is an excellent read.  While full of mystery and romance, there is magic and fantasy laced throughout

Many have read the first book in the series asking when the others will be released.

I was in hopes of obtaining an agent to take on this project as this trilogy disserves better than Amazon e-publishing. Not that there is anything wrong with Amazon or any of the e-publishing sites. Agents bring talents and connections to the table which can make a product like this trilogy, even better than it is.

Feedback from you the reader is the next best thing so by all means, tell me what you think.

While I don’t mean to make you the reader seem like second fiddle, as you are not, your vested interests are minute in comparison to that of an agent.  While I write because I want something good to read; you read to sate some desire or yearning which I try and fulfill for you.  I indeed am working for you!

An agent who takes on such a project invest time and money, and they most certainly expect an ROI.  That is why most will hedge their bets.

The artwork, for the most part, is mine.  The last book in the trilogy started out as a picture from another artist friend of mine.  With her permission, I modified it to fit my needs as the cover for the third novel in the series.  Ailani or her representation is my artwork literally out of my head.

I currently enjoy using the electronic medium for art when creating my covers.  Painting with oils and other traditional methods, this medium is so much nicer.

Under Roswell

In 1947 Roswell became famous!

Several years ago I wrote a rather lengthy Sci-Fi called Under Roswell.  Inspired by the writers of Stargate Universe I thought I could do better.  Maybe not but, the story that they told intrigued me.

Imagine that you came across a derelict Intergalactic spacecraft.

Now imagine that as you entered it, things came to life.

The writers on Stargate truly were inspiring in many ways.  It was terrible that the show lost its agility in the market.  I was not ready to give up on Rush and those men and women running from the demonic robotic drones.  Ending as it did, I started to write some fan fiction as an experiment.

It has been years since I tried my hand at creative writing, so it was fun. Realizing that I was spending a lot of juice on their creation, I abandoned the project.  The seed of creativity was planted, however.

Turning off the TV; I started writing about Elliot.

  • Who was he?
  • What did he look like?
  • Where did he come from?

Four years and lots of research later I finished Under Roswell.

Elliot worked for a company known as Ohmicron.  Ohmicron is, of course, a made-up name with Ohm coming from the world of electronics and Cron coming from my favorite topic, time, with a little bit of Unix thrown in for good measures.

Ohmicron does all kinds of different things including military applications.

Providing Elliot with an assistant, everyone considered it a win-win.  Elliot’s boss wanted someone keeping tabs on what he was doing.  Elliot wanted to get away from the drudgery of paperwork and Susan wanted to attract the fair-haired boy of Ohmicron!

Susan learns that Elliot is an avid rock climber.  In her spare time, she takes classes on rock climbing.

Inviting herself along on his vacation to his old home in New Mexico for some “rock climbing,” things happen to change their lives forever!

After a small fall, Susan takes the time to re-group.  While talking at the base of the rocks, a few pebbles find their way through a small opening in the rock face.  A metallic clunk catches Elliot’s attention

Elliot makes a concerted effort to discover the source of the clunk only to find a spacecraft which has been dormant under the pile of rocks for some time.  Could it have been there since 1947?

 

  • If this was you what would you do?
  • If the craft responded to you, would you enter?
  • If you were Susan would you follow Elliot?

 

Explore the Galaxy with Elliot and Susan on this romp through the galaxy.  Fight off the bad guys and learn about new races of people and their struggles to survive.

The novel moves quickly and you will not want to put it down.    Follow the link….
