I write science fiction romance, but it's the literary definition of romance. Swashbuckle, Baby, in "white tie and tails." High romantic fantasies, million word mysteries, family sagas, statesmen, gurus and wise immortals. Loving dads, sons and brothers, and of course, the women who understand and appreciate them. High fashion and landscape design. Materials and art, the books are built to be read very fast, specifically for the way women visualize. Research on the soap operas of the fifties, trends in international populist (fan) fiction, technological development, and above all, long-term entertainment value. It has to be good in reruns. The intent is create a body of work that's just fun to read, in spurts or bursts over decades. Ethics, responsibility, nobless oblige, the power of money, the use of prestige. I write good guys win. Period. They're fantasies for women. Men with lots of muscle say, "I love you," a lot.
Most of what is currently published was written in the first decade, 1991-1999, before Mother Nature changed my personal definition of "mature audience." I hope you'll remain with me as I and my work mature and enjoy the second decade of my work now being published, as well.
I've lived many places and visited far more. My current residence is on a high mesa in New Mexico, in the United States, where I am engaged in a habitat restoration project.
Explanation of the Pilots Group:
Some of these works have been sitting on my hard drive close to twenty years and they're no fun for anyone just sitting there. They're exactly what they've been titled, pilots, like for a TV series. It is my intent and hope that other writers will choose to continue the adventures of the characters. There are only three restrictions. Don't kill off my heroes, don't make good guys bad guys and give my story credit if you publish. Yes, you may publish and make money on your stories. I loved reading and writing fan fiction, but the limitations on it could be frustrating, so... Have fun with these works that specifically don't have them.

Knight Progenitor by Sharon L. Reddy
This is a massive fan fiction epic from an author who is a true sci-fi fan.
It is eloquent, intelligent and well written science fiction that covers a wide spectrum from Doctor Who to Star Trek the Next Generation. Many of your favorite characters are here in stories and novels that run from the highly excellent to a couple that are mediocre, but still enjoyable. One of my favorites is the story where Doctor Who is imprisoned on a planet of only females who want to use him to rebreed the population. He is given seven wives and kept perpetually exhausted. What a brilliant concept and highly entertaining story.
This book is massive and, at over 205,000 words, one of the biggest books I’ve read in some years. It rivals War and Peace for staying power and challenge to the reader. It took me over a month to read it because I could only handle a few sections at a time and had to turn to other books for respite. Even Dr. Who and Star Trek fans can only handle so much. I wouldn’t recommend trying to read it all at once.
The book is unlikely to interest those who are not fans of the show unless you really want to read exceptional science fiction writing. It is currently available free on Smashwords, but I believe the author has withdrawn her books from Amazon over a dispute.
Highly recommended. Just don’t expect a quick read.
