I've actually got three things in the hopper at the moment: a Mars mission sci-fi comedy for Audible Originals, the beginning of a novel with a working title of Shut Up And Run!, and ideas for the third Tesla book, where Chip explores being a (gulp) dad! I can't even imagine what kind of havoc little Gigi could wreak inside the ITA.(less)

I'm psyched you loved The Wrong Unit. Man, that story is near and dear (although I guess they all are my babies!). It was written as a standalone (vs. Tesla which was always meant to be a serial), so I don't think there'll be a sequel, but I'm a big believer in never-say-never! (And now you've got me thinking... what DOES happen to the humans?) Have a happy new year Joanne!(less)

Plenty of amusing banter, great relationship " Read more of this review »
