Title: Liftoff

Subtitle: Book 1 of the Rayatana Series 

A spaceship disguised as a movie theater …

An Earth girl searching for a sense of purpose …

And a Thousand Years’ War between alien races of The Great Galaxy … 

All collide on one summer afternoon. 

What could go wrong?

Amaya, a teen who feels lost after the upheaval of loss and divorce, finds comfort in matinee movies and new friends. When the movie theater is hit by disaster and turns out to be a spaceship in disguise, Amaya's world spins upside down. Aliens are real. Space ships don't always look like space ships. Accepting someone's apology could be the start of an intergalactic incident. But most troubling of all? Amaya finds out there's more to her family’s past than even she suspected. 

Liftoff is an action-packed science fiction novella for teen/YA book lovers who enjoy space battles, fistfights, tropes, alien life forms, and a hint of clean romance.

Fiction



The Champion Trilogy delves into a world where faith, or lack of it, determines the destiny of Clara, a sword-wielding heroine in this action-adventure fantasy that crosses from one kingdom to the next by ship, land, and Griffin flight. Evil villains and mercenaries face off against allies from various lands. Multiple viewpoint characters share the story, but the focus returns to Clara, the new Champion, whose faith or doubt could change the course of history.

A Pocket-Sized Jumble of 500+ Writing Prompts
is a book containing over 500 of the simplest of writing prompts. These simple words or phrases on a blank sheet of paper can gather momentum as a creator wonders at what it could mean, where it could take place, why, and what if? What if the words “green turtle” aren’t referring to a turtle at all? What if it’s the shield formation for a group of space pirates? What if the phrase "green turtle" is on a sign post in the real world? Where would it lead? What does it mean? Who follows it? And then, writing and creativity take flight.

PRAISE FOR A POCKET-SIZED JUMBLE OF 500+ WRITING PROMPTS:

“This is the perfect book for somebody who enjoys writing from prompts." - Michelle Wallace

“Wonderful little book of story prompts. It would be great for bloggers, seasoned writers, or for those who would like to dabble in writing and don't know where to start.” – Elizabeth Seckman

“Need ideas. Get them here.” - Diana Wilder

My first writing publications were poems published back in 1992. After that, I had an excerpt from a novel published in 2001. In 2009, I had my first short story sale (for real money!). I love writing short stories, poems, and articles. I have a page dedicated to them here, but I also have three collections out.

"Dragonfold" was my first short story sale. In this collection of speculative fiction and poetry Dragonfold and Other Adventures, readers can find some of my earliest work. 


EXPERIMENTAL AND SHORT EBOOKS





The Ashes Burn Micro-Fiction Series is my idea of creative, experimental, fun writing.
Each "season" has aired or will air on a blog dedicated to the series, and some episodes may air in the future on facebook and/or Wattpad.
Ashes hold the inner heat of fire, the spark and ember of flame. Like those, micro fiction holds the spark of a larger story that may grow inside the mind of a reader. Consider each piece a frame of embers. Picture the story in your mind.

In Ashes Burn, three characters build the flame of story in tidbits of hint to micro-length fiction, varying between 20 and 35 words in length.

Wend's past is behind him, and he wants to keep it that way.
Teresa wants to find the man she loves, before those that hunt him track him to his death.
King Bryant simply wants the right of any king: complete control.

Ashes Burn is an epic fantasy tale told in bite-sized chapters.
