I write numerous genres including space opera, science fiction, fantasy, and comic horror. I've even dabbled in romance.

My day job involves a planetarium, a starship simulator and lots of school children.

I'm glad you're enjoying the series! At this point, I'm not planning on any more stories about Dace. Her story is told. I do have a couple of short stories besides Paltronis' recruitment story. I just found out that most of them are now out of print, so I have plans to compile a short story collection of Altairan Empire stories. Probably in 2016 sometime.

I have several stand-alone novels planned for the universe, at different times both before and after the series' time frame. But I'm currently at work on a Master's thesis and several fantasy series.

The books and stories are coming. Promise. I love the universe too much to leave it behind forever, too.(less)

Kuportik's forked tongue flicked over the claws on his front foot. So messy, those deer, so full of blood. But that haunch of venison had tasted all right. Not spectacular, but it was sufficient to satiate his hunger. Tomorrow, he'd have to try something new. Maybe fish from the lock. Shark was supposed to good for the scales and teeth.

His huge eyes slowly closed as he drowsed in his cave, tail... Read more of this blog post »
