Qualify (The Atlantis Grail Book 1)

cover

The Atlantis Grail has been optioned for development as a feature film series and/or TV series.

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there’s a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth’s population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there’s a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted… Such as curing your mother’s cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she’s a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she’s come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition—including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she’s been crushing on, and who doesn’t seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.

The Void Within: The Cluster Saga Book One

cover

The 25th century. Humanity has discovered a new form of energy, the Source, derived from the very basis of life itself. Using this power to travel instantaneously through space, humans have spread through their corner of the galaxy and coalesced into two groups: the Coalition and the Inner Cluster. They are held in an uneasy economic and cultural relationship by their reliance on each other, the Coalition with the technology of the Source and the Inner Cluster with the materials to make it a usable form of energy. When rumors of conquest, political undergrounds, and alien contact threaten this balance of powers, it falls to three individuals to find the truth of the conspiracies swirling through their governments and to stave off a disastrous war. What they find in the process will change the course of humanity forever.

Shadow Eclipse Voyage

cover

From 21st century PhD student to 23rd century vampire space mercenary, Clarke’s had a busy week.

Discovering you are a vampire would normally be the most notable thing in someone’s day. For Florentina Clarke, it gets narrowly edged out when an experiment traps her 200 years into the future. Enlisting as a mercenary on a smuggling vessel that seems to spend more time seeking fights than actually smuggling is an unusual career move for a PhD student. But when you have no money, no ID and the yakuza want a quiet word about a completely honest misunderstanding then perhaps poor life choices are the only life choices.

Okay, so you do have to deal with pirate attacks, a surely captain that refuses to meet you, a ship’s armory that seems to have far too many stakes in it, Orcish squad-mates who keep drinking the illicit coffee you are trying to smuggle, more pirate attacks, your own (future) self who is involving you in her own machinations and an irritating, but magnetic, vampire lover whose personal quest for vengeance has already gotten him killed once.

Shadow Eclipse: Voyage is the first book in the Shadow Eclipse series, following the adventures of Florentina Clarke across time and space.

‘Star trek, but with time-travelling space vampires.’

The Chase: Huntress of the Star Empire #1

cover

Treska Sivekka is the Huntress–the Union’s most skilled bounty hunter. Her targets? The psypaths whose mental talents summoned aliens attacks on the capital planet that left her body shattered and her mind a blank slate.

Now the last free psypath is in her crosshairs…if only he weren’t her one chance at restoring her lost memories.

The alien attacks came out of nowhere and left the entire system reeling, but the aftermath caused twice as much destruction to the old social orders as psypaths like Micah Ariesis and near-humans like the Hathori became scapegoats for an inexplicable devastation…and then rebels against the repressive, reactionary government that rose from the ashes.

The last psypath has one chance at victory for the rebellion…but it’s the Huntress who holds the key.

Fans of Star Wars and Firefly, meet your new binge-read!

Expelled

cover

Jayne Austin wasn’t always the galaxy’s number one spy.

She was expelled from spy school for uncovering a double-agent because apparently, that’s what happens to spies that accomplish great things.

Given a choice between going back to her planet or selling her one-way ticket for starting capital she thought long and hard about her choices.

All of fifteen seconds.

Then, she created ‘the Plan.’

It was a great plan.

A worthy plan.

A noble plan that meant she could start up her own spy agency, and show them precisely who they’ve expelled.

However, when her first case comes in, she begins to wonder if perhaps she bit off too much.

With the fate of the planet in the hands of terrorists, Jayne is forced to up her game and go to lengths she never thought she dared. 

She’s going to need *FRIENDS*. 

If you love space opera you’re going to love Spy for Hire: a literary triumph of majestic accomplishments a laugh-out-loud, spew-your-coffee-over-your kindle swashbuckling page turner that follows the shenanigans and best efforts of a somewhat cavalier ex-government spy, Jayne Austin.
