About J.F. Posthumus
Wife and a mother of five, J.F. Posthumus is an IT Tech with over a decade of experience. When she isn’t arguing with computers and their inherent gremlins, or being mom to the four younger monsters (the eldest has flown the nest and is doing quite well on his own), she’s crafting, writing, or doing some other sort of art. An avid gamer, she loves playing Dungeons & Dragons, and a variety of other board games with her family and friends. She’s also a hopeless romantic, thanks to all the fairy tales she cut her eyeteeth on—they were what J.F. Posthumus learned to read before she discovered the Boxcar Children Mysteries. From there, she fell into the rabbit hole that’s reading, where she discovered a love for mysteries, fantasy, and the occasional romance. Since writing was her favorite subject, she naturally incorporated her love of murder, mysteries, and fantasy into her works.
When she came up with the idea of a body being found at a local building, it was only natural to create a necromancer for the job. From there, Catherine’s story unfolded, complete with monsters, magic, and a little bit of romance…

Seventeen incredible authors. Seventeen amazing stories. One fantastic sci-fi universe, where the only limit is one’s imagination. Welcome to Starflight.
Based on the exploration-based Starflight video game series created by Greg Johnson and the Binary Systems team, the stories in Tales From the Starport Lounge flesh out and shine a light into the darkest corners of the known universe. Join the last vestiges of Humanity and their alien allies (the reptilian Thrynn, the insectoid Velox, and the plant-based Elowan) as they attempt to carve out their own territory in a sector of space filled with wondrous opportunity and deadly threats. Brave explorers seek out new worlds to colonize while merchants cruise from starport to starport, their holds laden with exotic goods.
Not all in this futuristic setting have noble intent. For every prospector and trader attempting to make a difference, a dozen pirates, smugglers, and mobsters engage in all manner of criminal enterprise. Gangs fill the underbellies of every major city and raid the trade routes between the stars, pushing the outnumbered and outgunned Interstel Police to their limit and forcing civilians to take matters into their own hands. It’s a rough and tumble universe, where one wrong move could spell doom for an expedition, or grant enough wealth to buy a planet.
Board your ship and set course for stars unknown! The universe awaits.

From sweet to spicy, there's something to satisfy any fan of fantasy, romance, or both!
An assassin for Earth's interstellar military division, Alyssa Zelaya is too good at what she does. She's become a risk to those she works for and they want her dead. Sent to “Investigate” a new race, she is slated for death. Instead of dying, though, she's rescued by the aliens.
Captain Mc’narrd risks everything in the hopes the occupant of the lone ship will be willing to help them end the budding war between his people and Earth.
Commander Mc'narrd wants her help in stopping the hostility with her people and she's willing to do anything to help him. And not just because he makes her pulse race and her heart skip the proverbial beat. Going home is a death warrant. Any chance at life that she can foresee will be with the K’laisians. Maybe one K’laisian in particular.
Banished from her hidden island homeland and adopted into a Mob family, Selia has spent nearly a decade learning to live in the "modern" world of technology and doing legitimate business for one of the city's oldest crime syndicates. Being a part of it all while still feeling very much apart from everything and everyone around her.
When she's asked to run an errand, she discovers too late that it's a trap. Alfi Barboni, a would-be suitor, wants revenge on her family and he'll do anything to get it.
When her adopted father is left for dead in the attempted coup, Selia's forced to turn to her only other option: the city's vigilante known as the Sandman. Risking everything to protect her father and save herself, Selia dons a mask –a lot of Kevlar – and begins her search for Alfi… only to discover he’s nothing more than a necromancer’s puppet.
If Selia, with the Sandman’s aid can't stop the necromancer and end the attempted coup, everything she holds dear will be left in ruin.
In her younger years, Catherine Woulfe was known as the Lady of Death…but those days are long past. Now, at over 300 years old, she is older, wiser…and painfully dull. Instead of using her necromancy skills for things like killing people and taking over governments, she now works as a private investigator, helping people find their lost treasures.
But when a charismatic stranger walks through her door, searching for one of the most powerful artifacts ever created, she is drawn into a case where she must use all of her old powers—including several forbidden ones—if she is to find the missing amulet. When the last person to see the amulet goes missing, she realizes it’s time for the Lady of Death to summon her minions and go on the warpath.
Angels and demons are searching for the amulet, as is a mysterious dark elf about whom little is known. Everyone is stalking her, waiting for her to find it so they can grab it for their own; meanwhile, her client has awoken feelings long suppressed, which is proving to be…distracting. Can Catherine find the trail of the thief and recover the amulet before the thief uses it to summon a deity that will destroy the Earth? More importantly, if she gets it, will she give it back?
Even worse—if possible—is that they also have two parts of the talisman she used during her days as the Lady of Death, which can turn even mundane items into powerful weapons. Long thought destroyed, someone has found the pieces, centuries later, and is determined to reassemble it.
Now, pregnant with Sterling’s child and unable to use most of her magic, Catherine must depend upon friends, family, and close allies to help locate the talisman. The demon trapped within it wants out, and if that happens, it will reign chaos—and potentially kill everyone—on Earth.
Catherine must find the talisman before whoever has it manages to kill her or acquires final piece of the talisman, allowing all of its powers to be activated. With no clues as to who’s on her trail, she’s forced to use herself—along with her unborn baby—and the last piece of the talisman as bait. Can she kill whoever posses the talisman before they kill her and her friends? Or will the talisman’s demon get what it most desires—escape from its centuries-old prison?
