You might notice one thing fairly quickly — we’re an interesting, diverse bunch of people. Fascinating, even. So what are we all doing hanging out here? Well, all of us love writing, and we love science fiction. Sooner or later, we were all going to get around to writing science fiction. We write all different […]

Science fiction and fantasy are not shy of heroic women. Uhura, Ripley, Sarah Connor, Xena, Princess Leia, Elizabeth Swann, Brienne of Tarth, Katniss, Hermione Granger, Susan Ivanova, Beverly Crusher, Zoe Washburne, Arwen, Éowyn, Laura Roslin, Merida, and Lois Lane, just to name a few. Creators of science fiction and fantasy love to show us what’s […]

IN THE VOID is the sequel to the successful first book in the Tales from the Edge series, IN THE BLACK!

But after her luxurious transport […]

It used to be that you could write a novel and put it in a drawer for six to twelve months. In fact, that used to be recommended. Lately, you can’t stop for long at all before your science fiction just becomes the present. NASA has just validated the principles behind an “impossible” space drive, […]

It’s been a great few months for the first book in the “Tales from the Edge” series with “In the Black” grabbing some faboo reviews! RT Reviews gave it 4/5 stars and said it was “a fast-paced tale of murder & mystery in outer space”! And the next story in the series, “In the Void” comes out […]

Odd Thomas is a 2013 film released on DVD earlier this year and based on a series of supernatural thrillers by New York Times best selling author Dean Koontz.

No, that is not Master Chief on my latest cover! I am super excited to share the cover for Book 2 of The Phoenix Adventures, IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA. This story has action, adventure, a treasure hunt for the derringer used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln and a hot romance…but Master Chief from the Halo games […]

Bioware has broken our hearts, toyed with our emotions, hung us out to dry, then sold us the DLC. We don’t care, we come back every time because there’s gay romance and looming evil and great acts of heroism. We were so excited for Mass Effect 4 at E3. We put our fingers in our ears to […]

A torus is a shape that crops up often in science fiction, when space stations and other creations—like the Halo of the eponymous video game—are imagined. Basically, it’s a very big donut, which seems to be an open invitation to snacking by space creatures but it’s been a popular idea all along. Now, apparently, someone’s […]
