Here Again

I’ve been horrible at keeping up on social media the past few weeks.  Editing is occupying all my waking moments.  The good news is, Renegades will be released soon.  Autumn, this year.  The other good news is – The Wildblood series is going to print!

Wooo!  I actually have a copy – a real, live paperback – of Backlash.  It’s so cool.  It’s also available through Amazon.  The Vista will be following along shortly, and of course, Renegades.

As for other projects, there is a SFR creeping around the corner, demanding I let it out.  More on that, as it moves along.

I’ve also been playing with the idea of novellas in The Wildblood universe.  There are so many stories.  We’ll see.

That’s it.  I have to hit the books again.  Plus, go pet my shiny new paperback.



In Print!

Exciting news! Paperback copies of Backlash should be available in a few days! Of course, ebook copies are available now. 😉


The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood and Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood will also have print editions available.

New 5 Star Review – An action packed, non-stop, sci-fi, dystopian thrill seeker. Backlash is a short prequel that will give you a great taste of what you’ll get in the Wildblood Series.

Backlash – Before Team Three, there was The Blackout.


The paperback cover, and the current ebook cover. Once I have a set date on printing, I’ll be switching it over so they’re all the same.

Graig Roble is the Senior Commander of security for the Guardian Fleet. His expertise as a weapons specialist and combat master is his world, what he was born to do – or so he thought until he finds his resolve and focus inexplicably wavering. Even returning to his position aboard the Atlantis can’t save him; if anything, it has left him questioning his own motives. He never thought that could happen until he met Simone Campbell.

Simone’s focus is on her home world – Earth. She thought her life was full with her research as a botanist. After all, she always believed that helping the people of her world become self-sufficient should take all of her concentration – except it doesn’t. There is one man that keeps pulling her attention, and her heart, away from her job.

Graig’s gift of a puppy to keep her company does more than that, it keeps him in her dreams. How can such a simple gift bring her comfort and make her long for more? Graig and Simone are about to find out that sometimes love can blossom from the smallest, furriest ties.

Unfortunately, Cole is proving one distraction that might make this her last hunt if she can’t do that.

Can Teegan keep her heart and mind in the game long enough to save an entire planet’s population, or will her distraction lead to heartache – and possibly death for everyone?

SFR Brigade Showcase – Aug. 2016



August already!  I know this is supposed to be about Romance, but – have you seen all the science headlines about genetic engineering and genetic memory??  I’m not a geneticist or anything close, but I just have to say, the outline for The Wildblood series was written in 1998.  FYI.  Now, on to other things.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

How about a Cover Reveal! And a snippet, of course. Here we find Shannon and Hunter wandering around Kansas, seeing the sights while they wait for the rest of the caravan. You never know what you’ll find, in the middle of Nowhere.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

“I’m sure there’s a collapsed barn, or something exciting, over here,” he teased. There were a group of buildings, probably a farm, and mostly overgrown. They rode on. “This far enough away from a city of any real size, I’d think it was the plague that got them,” Hunter said quietly.

“Or marauders. I remember, more than once or twice, in The Vista. One of my earliest memories was hiding at the hospital. One of the inner rooms, with no windows. We’d sit and wait and it seemed like forever.”

“Or they went some place safer.”

Dismounting, she walked a bit, getting a feel for the place. “I hope so.”

“I know what you’re doing.”

“Good. I don’t expect anything spectacular, or complicated. You know the routine.” Mostly, to watch her back, in case she got distracted by the tiniest details she would pick up, details that would go unnoticed by others.

“There’s a lot of old farm equipment sitting here,” he indicated along what had been the driveway, half-concealed by underbrush and time.

Shan walked farther out, pulling away the weeds, wandering around it to get a better look.

“Do you plan on dragging it back to Montana?” Hunter asked. “For a souvenir?”

“I don’t think this is farm equipment.”

“So what? We need to head back soon.” He followed her anyway.

Stripping as much debris away as she could, Shan stepped back and stared.

“Oh, Capt. Allen, now you’ve done it,” he said, with a sudden and growing concern.

Now, I never said I was going to tell you what they found! Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood will be available this autumn. The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood and Backlash, prequel to The Wildblood series are both available now.
