Rodney C. Johnson lives in Westbrook, Ct. with his two beagles, Zoey and Bentley, plus the family cat Gretchen. He enjoys reading and writing. He considers himself a “Foodie”. His love of Science Fiction was driven by Star Trek and Frank Herbert’s classic work DUNE.
In his free time, Rodney C. Johnson is an avid collector of books, new or used. Mostly Science Fiction books (Sci-Fi), but he will read anything, provided it catches his interest. It's not about the genre - it is about if the author paints a vivid picture with his words.

A sci-fi reminiscent of the golden era when men were men and women wore mini skirts so you wouldn't notice the gun they held behind their back. Written in a style that flows from the technological to the bedroom, Starblade tells the story of Frederika, a Morningstar (an artificially constructed human) whose brains, sultry beauty and lethal skills make her the perfect choice to infiltrate the island of the Falcanians - a self made species of genetically enhanced humans whose power, strength and resources could tip the scales in a post apocalyptic war for control of the world. And getting inside is easy. Shar-Khan, the Falcaninan leader, is taken with her. But can she keep her mission a secret? What will happen if she is discovered? And what is the dark presence that seems to be swirling, almost undetected, among them?
Starblade, the first of a trilogy, sets the stage for the next books to come, and I for one am looking forward to them!
