Thanks!

I was always a huge reader in school--the kid who won the award for reading the most books. I started writing because I wanted to tell stories that would thrill other people the way the books I loved had thrilled me. Ultimately, that's still what inspires me. I just want to tell exciting, entertaining stories about characters people care about. Hopefully I've succeeded.(less)

Marseguro by Edward Willett
I have no idea how old this question is, but...it does stand alone, but there is a sequel, Terra Insegura. The two were also published in an omnibus edition called The Helix War. But just two...that wraps it up.
