THE EMPRESS OF UNITY is nearing completion

I am a few chapters away from the end of my book #14. It is a sequel to THE SPACE ORPHAN trilogy. The main character is ex-Space-Force Major astronaut Felicia Romero.

She is bisexual and is trying to persuade her lady love Annika to be chief architect of Atlantis, a New-Zealand-sized Pacific island halfway between Kiwi Land and Chile.

One of the perqs (and needs) of the job is her private spaceplane. It is about the size of a bizjet. Here is a translucent side view showing a galley, restroom, six passenger seats, and two seats for pilots. Not hyper-capable, but can travel anywhere on Earth and to the Moon.

Wonderful movie CARRIE PILBY

I just watched for the umpteenth time “Carrie Pilby” starring Bel Powley. Watching her face is a fascinating process; she reveals her feelings so clearly yet so subtly.

The action takes place from just before Thanksgiving through Christmas to New Year’s Eve. In that time Carrie journeys from blahness to happiness while meeting interesting characters, including one cad (who meets his just deserts, I’m glad to say).

I’m heartbroken that I’m not friends with this fictional character. Happily, I have some real-life friends who are just as terrific. I urge you to meet her too. To find out how go HERE.

Sequel to THE SPACE ORPHAN Trilogy Going Well

I’m 60% of the way through the sequel to The Space Orphan trilogy. I still have NO idea how to end it, but that’s usual for the way I write.

I start with an interesting situation and discover the story as I write. It’s like jumping off a cliff and expecting to fly. It’s a risky process but it has worked for 13 books and as many shorter works so far. Happily, all of them are still earning money, even the very first book.

FIRST CONTACT short story available

All of Earth became aware of extra-solar aliens in the times described in The Space Orphan trilogy. And later met them when the aliens visited the Solar System. But the first contact with aliens happened before then. “First Contact” chronicles this event.

MOVIE SCRIPT The Star Woman

I think my book The Star Woman would make a great limited-run series on Netflix or the like. The ten chapters of the book could be shown as ten episodes.

Who would play Karen Danburn, the heroine of my book? I wrote it as my version of Supergirl, AKA Kara Danvers. In the comics and the TV show she is portrayed as a blond White girl. I showed her this way on the cover of my book. But I’d love it to be Rihanna who impressed me in the movie Battleship.

As an experiment I adapted the first chapter of The Star Woman. Want to read it? Go to THIS page.
