I'm particularly difficult to contact when I'm on Team Rubicon operations or out backpacking--cellphone towers don't exist in disaster zones or the wilderness!

Saree’s stuck between a hot rock and cold, dark place.
Lightwave’s favorite refuge, The Sisters of Cygnus, are under siege. The Inquisitors search for transuranic riches in the depths of Cygnus, stealing, raping and pillaging to support themselves.
The Sisters beg for Lightwave’s help. Captain Ruhger offers to transport them to a new world, but they don’t want to leave. They want Lightwave to return to their mercenary roots and remove the Inquisitors from the planet—or relieve them of their lives.
Saree ends up as the referee, but Lightwave’s crew won’t go back and the Sisters can’t go forward.
But something’s got to give. Will it be Saree?
Find out in Lightwave: The Sisters of Cygnus, Folding Space Series 2.0!
Is the former teen idol a shooting star? Or shooting at Saree?
Desperate for paying passengers, Lightwave takes an aging teen idol on board. Temper tantrums, ridiculous demands, and crazy fans are sure to follow, but they need the credits.
Saree doesn’t want anything to do with the flirty, spoiled star. She can’t trust anyone. The star is probably trying to lure her in, discover her secret and turn her in for the huge reward—just like everyone else.
Can Saree and Lightwave survive the pop star and his adoring legions? If they do, what about those old enemies still lurking? Find out in Lightwave: Shooting Star, Folding Space Series 3.0!
Hal's back—but can they trust him?
Saree and Lightwave fly together, maintaining clocks and trying to avoid everyone hunting them. They’ve started to come together as a team, but Saree’s no-longer secret identity is straining their bonds. No matter how many times they change their name or fold to a new constellation, Lightwave is under constant threat. Organized crime, greedy corporations, and political operatives all hunt Saree—the most wanted woman in the universe. Lightwave needs real protection, maybe a whole military fleet.
When Hal shows up, apparently unharmed from his captivity, he has all the answers. But is his escape too good to be true? And will the pressure on the crew form diamonds or crush them into stardust? Find out in Lightwave: Command Decision, Folding Space Series 6.0!
United we fall, divided we run.
Saree’s secret identity isn’t so secret anymore, so she agrees to leave Lightwave behind—forever. When every mercenary, bounty hunter and opportunist is searching for you, traveling alone is terrifying. But if she stays on Lightwave, their enemies will find them.
While Lightwave and her crew run for the fringes of known space, Saree and her seemingly sentient shuttle, Hal, head the other direction. But are they really safer apart? Will Hal’s impulsive behavior thrust them straight into a black hole? And what happens when the Time Guild decides to interfere? Find out in Lightwave: Lost, Folding Space Series 4.0!
Safety is a longshot, but it’s better than no shot at all.
With a Gov Human military task force protecting Lightwave, Saree is content. Add in her new relationship with Ruhger and Saree is truly happy. Then an unknown enemy attacks the task force, creating chaos, and Lightwave is back on the run.
Elements inside Gov Human blame the attack on Saree, using the destruction to justify a military rebellion. Saree finds herself and Lightwave firmly in the cross-hairs of Gov Human and their allies. With enemies on all sides, “safety” shoots right out the airlock. Mere survival is a longshot…
The thrilling conclusion of the Folding Space Series is finally here!
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory
Saree is trapped. On the verge of destruction, Hal sacrificed himself so Saree could escape on Lightwave. Then the ransom demand for her best friend Nari arrives and Saree hesitates. The best way for Hal to find Saree—when he escapes—is staying on schedule, onboard Lightwave. But saving Nari from Lightwave’s old enemy means taking crazy risks and tossing all their careful plans into the vacuum.
When a Gov Human military rescue team arrives, they seem like the perfect answer. But Lightwave’s crew and the rescue team immediately clash, fighting for control. Saree seizes command, forcing them to work together, but her lack of experience and incompetence alienates everyone. As the ancient adage says, “Bad leaders with good intentions fold into black holes.” Can Saree and Lightwave’s crew survive to rescue Nari and Hal, or will freedom tick away forever?

There’s no place like home—and sometimes that’s a good thing.
When Quinn returned to the Sisters of Cygnus, she didn’t plan on staying. But two years later, she’s still there—and her enemies are closing in.
Desperate to escape, she’s offered a job on the high-profile research vessel Quantum Fold. The offer seems too good to be true. And maybe it is—everyone is watching, including those who won’t hesitate to sell her out.
Quinn can’t run, because her secret abilities could be a game changer for the mission. But if she can’t run, and she can’t hide, what’s left?
Something is wrong at Adzari Net Academy. Really wrong.
It all seemed so right—Quinn’s big chance! She’d leave the mud, giant lizards and back-breaking labor behind forever and gain so much more: skills, connections, a job, a real life.
Then Quinn arrives to find the academy under new ownership and everything’s changed. Mean girls, strict schedules and tough teachers aren’t a problem. Quinn’s got the brains, discipline and training to beat them at their own game.
But the new owners raised the stakes and the house always wins. Quinn’s big adventure has become a fight for survival. Light years from home, with no power or backup, how can she endure?
Some might give up and fail. But not Quinn. She’s determined to not just survive, but escape and do a little damage on her way out.
They’ll never know what hit them.
Trouble in all the wrong places…
Katryn of Cygnus knocks Tyron Phazeer off his feet—literally and figuratively. She’s got the net security skills Lightwave Fold Transport needs, she’s killer in a fight, and as a bonus, she’s beautiful.
Katryn’s been burned more than once—is Tyron and his job offer too good to be true? And does she really want to work and live in space? But her choices disappear when her past catches up to her.
Trying to escape the mercenary troop chasing Katryn through Nexus station, she slips in a hidden corridor used only by station maintenance personnel. Tyron knows those passages are controlled by a shady group known only as Nexus Below, and now, Katryn’s got trouble above and below.
Can Tyron help Katryn escape her enemies? Can Katryn learn to trust Tyron? Find out in Lightwave: Nexus Station, a Folding Space Series prequel.
