Oh, goodness. I didn't even see this section of Goodreads. So sorry this has taken so long!

I'm glad you liked the review. I feel bad because I really wanted to like that book, but ... the girl just did *nothing* for too long.

In answer, yes. I have several novels out. My most recent is Tapped, a science fiction that I call "the underground railroad in space."(less)

Oddly Terrifying – November 2019 Round Robin

Faxon Mylonas showed up in my debut novel Sedition smelling of pipe-weed and lurking in the shadows around Kiavana Fortress. He was, on first blush, an assassin and a mercenary, and I only grazed his character in that novel.
