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.

SI, The Trilogy is a unique set of novels written to be read quickly... when I first heard that phrase, I didn't understand that until I sat down with my kindle. Before I knew it, I was chapters into the book and my husband was reminding me that I should sleep. One chapter later became three before I could put the book down.
Set in the future, you find yourself thrown into a world of attempted-slavery, space travel, families connected in the perfect way to change civilization as it is known, false identities, love and unconventional relationships... And that's just the beginning.
The trilogy continues by introducing you to new planets, new maneuvers by the SI as they battle the effects of the "zombie" virus, and quickly produce new technology to bring worlds closer together. The only thing that moves faster than the plot are the family sizes! It can be sometimes confusing to remember who is married to who, but that is actually intentional - the people individually and the smaller families are still important, but it's the overall clan as a whole that provides the love, support, and assistance that these worlds need to come together.
While the books may seem confusing in spots while trying to remember all of the different people and nicknames the main characters have, their personalities shine through, allowing you to follow the story of a family that became a clan... and a clan that changed the universe. this series is fun, witty, intelligent, and captivating. Every time you re-read it, you'll catch something new that you didn't notice, or you'll put together facts that are more evident once you're read later chapters. This series is made for people who enjoy going back and reading their book and putting the pieces of a puzzle together.
