She shares her home with a brilliant young girl, her wonderful wife (who also writes), a cat that chirps at birds, a never-ending list of things she would like to build, and ideas…

Delve into the epic Aeon 14 Universe with the Bestselling book that started it all.I’m done with Sol. The system is rotting, and I want out.
The Terran Space Force has tried to hold onto me, but even they can’t deny the people behind the largest colony ship ever made. The GSS Intrepid can house millions of colonists, and its leaders have selected me as one of them.
I finally have a way out of Sol. Except…there’s a catch. I mean…of course there is, right?
A secret organization is doing their damnedest to destroy the Intrepid. My background in military intelligence puts me in charge of the investigation, which means I’m going to have to work for my passage.
Not that I mind, Angela—my rather sassy internal AI—and I are used to going up against impossible odds to get the job done. The only problem? We don’t know who our adversary is.
Either way, they’d better look out. Nothing’s going to stand in my way.
An ancient general, and a woman running from her destiny...
Sera leads a simple life.
A little smuggling, some drinking contests, and captaining her star freighter, Sabrina. But when she picks up a mysterious shipping container on Coburn Station, things begin to go wrong. She finds herself at odds with The Mark, a dangerous pirate organization that wants the cargo on her ship.
Inside the container she not only finds a woman, but a secret thought lost millennia ago. The woman is Tanis Richards, and she knows the location of the Intrepid, a missing colony ship from humanity's golden age.
Sera knows how to help Tanis and the Intrepid. But to do that, she will need to reveal a secret that will pull her back into a life she left long ago. A life from which she was exiled in shame and disgrace.
Tanis doesn't trust Sera; and Sabrina's rag-tag crew is nothing like what she's used to, but she's going to have to rely on them to avoid capture and get back to the Intrepid. As Tanis and Sera battle pirates and interstellar governments, the two women forge a friendship that will forever shape the destiny of humanity.
It has been decades since the New Eden colonists left Victoria and disappeared without a trace. With no one left for her on Victoria, Katrina resolves to discover what happened to her missing friends.
With a small starship, a crotchety AI, and more hope than plans, she leaves, following the route laid down by the great colony ship, the Intrepid.
When Katrina wakes from stasis, she finds herself over four-thousand years in the future, in a galaxy that has fallen to ruin. Her only hope is that the Intrepid is still out there somewhere, still trying build a future.
But her own future looks grim from the slave pits of Bollam’s World, where Katrina finds herself in short order. Sold off and shipped across the stars to a master trying to build an empire, she must use all her cunning and guile if she is to survive.
Katrina knows that her goal of freedom comes with a price, a price that will require her to become…

It never arrived.
Nearly five thousand years later the ship’s XO, Tanis Richards, awakens to find herself on a small freighter far from the Intrepid, lost in space and time. She has one mission: get back to her ship and find out what has happened to her people.
But it won’t be easy. In the intervening millennia, civilization has collapsed, and the Intrepid’s technology makes it the most valuable prize in the galaxy.
Now Tanis must team up with Sera, the freighter’s captain in an effort to save her ship. It’ll take all the cunning and courage the two women can muster as they battle everyone from pirates to interstellar governments in an attempt to reach the Intrepid first.
In doing so, Tanis and Sera forge a friendship that will forever shape the destiny of humanity. Pick up Battle for New Canaan today and embark on one of the greatest Science Fiction tales ever written.

The Intrepid adrift between the stars.
After near calamity at LHS 1565, the Intrepid is on a course for Kapteyn's Star to make repairs. There, the crew will need to spend decades building a temporary industrial base.
Across the void, the Noctus prepare to leave Sirius for the same destination. Their plan is to colonize the system and forge a new lives for themselves ... if they aren't destroyed by their government first.
In an epic tale spanning over a century, Tanis Richards finds herself in another fight for her life as the new colony of Victoria is built under the threat of interstellar war.
…and they’re losing.
In a last-ditch hope, the Genevian mech program was founded. Its goal to augment humans into cyborg fighting machines; mechanized warriors sent to hold the front lines against an enemy that was storming a hundred worlds.
Yet few wished to undergo the brutal process, and so criminals were used, their minds enslaved by control chips and obedience enforced through Discipline.
The Genevians spent their mechs against the Nietzscheans with little care, eventually struggling to find enough bodies to convert into fighting machines. Quotas were set in the courts, prosecutors and judges paid off to ensure that even the most benign offenses would see the perpetrator end up in a mech factory, rights and mind stripped as much as body.
Rika is one such victim.
Forged into a second generation scout mech, she is sent to the front lines where she serves with distinction, crushing countless enemies beneath her clawed feet.
But, despite giving everything she had, Genevia still loses the war, and Rika is abandoned.
Now she slings cargo on Dekar, little more than a human loading machine, struggling to keep ahead of the slow breakdown of her mechanized body.
Until someone makes her an offer she cannot refuse. An offer that will see her rejoin the fight—whether she wants to or not. Rika will have to summon a strength she never knew she had to bring about the victory that she once thought was lost.
Get Rika’s Marauders today and follow the ultimate rags-to-riches story, where one woman rises up and saves not only herself, but her people.
This omnibus volume contains all 7 books in the Rika’s Marauders series, as well as two novellas: Rika Mechanized and Rika Crucible.
The Intrepid is falling into a star.
Bob, the ship's AI, has lost control of the engines and core systems. Battling a saboteur who strives to isolate him, Bob's last act is to wake Colonel Tanis Richards from stasis.
When Tanis wakes, she finds herself alone on a dying ship, unable to contact the Bob or anyone else. She must discover what has happened and save the Intrepid from burning up in LHS 1565.
Even if she is successful, the journey to the colony world of New Eden is just beginning. With a damaged ship decades of travel ahead, Tanis and the crew of the Intrepid will somehow have to find a path in the darkness.
Right after she finishes her BLT, disgraced Major Tanis Richards is off to save the day one more time.
Tanis is looking forward to a long journey in stasis before arriving at the newly terraformed world of New Eden. New Life. New Start. Getting a berth on the Intrepid is her ticket out of the Sol System.
But nothing proves easy for Major Tanis Richards. Nothing is at it seems. What should be a simple trip is fraught with danger and filled with adventure. An array of forces seek to stop the Intrepid—no matter the cost, or lives lost. From competing corporations, to stellar eco-terrorists, no one wants the Intrepid to arrive at New Eden.
Through their journey, the crew of the Intrepid will face rival stellar governments, civil war, and the most wanted serial killer known to the galaxy. Pivoting their role from colonists to saviors.
Perhaps it’s because the Intrepid carries the most valuable secret known to humanity. Or maybe it’s just Tanis’s luck.
Pick up The Intrepid Saga now and journey with Tanis on an intense, action-packed adventure through the stars.
Captain Andy Sykes just wants to keep his family in one piece.
Once a combat pilot for the TSF, he gave it all up for love and a family. But two years ago, his wife disappeared, leaving him with two mouths to feed: eight year-old Tim, ten year-old Cara.
Since then, he's managed to scrape a living hauling cargo between the Jovian Combine and InnerSol. It's not glamorous, his ship's falling apart, and it's boring as hell, but it keeps them in fuel and calories.
When a cargo run to Cruithne Station meets with more than one catastrophe, Andy finds himself accepting an offer a less desperate man would refuse: delivering an illegal AI named Lyssa.
The AI is the property of Heartbridge, a powerful, interplanetary corporation, and they want their latest weapon back. With a private army, gangs, and pirates all vying for the precious cargo Andy carries, it's going to take everything Andy has to keep his ship flying, his kids safe, and get Lyssa to her destination.
Even if he succeeds, Lyssa's very existence may spark a war like no other humanity has ever seen.

Captured, but not defeated…
Jace and the Blackadder have taken Katrina captive, but that does not mean she is contained.
Beaten, battered, barely alive, Katrina struggles to keep herself together. She knows that it is up to her to hold on, if only for Juasa’s sake. If they can to gain the trust of Jace . . . or perhaps his wife, then they just might have a chance to escape.
Together with Juasa, Katrina must work her way up the Blackadder organization from the inside if she has any hope of finding Troy and the Voyager.
But the 85th century is far different than the world Katrina left behind. The decisions she must make will not be easy, and she’ll leave a more than a little of herself behind as she travels the road to become . . .
The Scipio Alliance presses their attack against Orion and the Hegemony.

When Troy finds Katrina, he sees through her facade, past the wall and the iron fist, to the broken husk of a woman who remains within. He has the technology to heal her body, but there is nothing he can do for her spirit.
Katrina will have to find the strength to make herself whole, if she is to survive the wait for the Intrepid.
Though a part of her would welcome death...
