I, Effing Feline, am fwee! I am fwee of meddling Ed, who always reads my posts and criticizes and edits. I can, at last, be mice-elf!

Why am I fwee? ‘Cuz some guy named Sir Jury, or maybe Arthur, has scooped out Ed’s shoulder an’ he is too loopy to proofread.

Love thy Galactic Enemy will be available very soon — September 9. The heroine, currently calling herself “Lou,” knocks out a guy she thinks is an intruder, then discovers he’s an innocent (and seriously ill) new roommate.

He has taken a sleeping pill, which give Lou the courage to take the next step.

He shivered again and moaned. For a minute, the only sound was his labored breathing. Then he moaned again and shivered so powerfully his teeth chattered. He must’ve walked to the room through sheer willpower.

She sucked in a deep breath. The air wasn’t cold, not really, yet loneliness sucked all warmth from her bones.

Without letting herself think, she flicked off the lights, lifted the blanket, and crawled in beside her roommate. “Sorra,” she whispered, “I just…”

He didn’t respond. He wasn’t dead, though, just asleep.

Effing Feline here again. Okay, I have this straight now. Ed had arthroscopic surgery (though I don’t know the doc’s name . . . Arthur, maybe?). He  always comments on evry one’s post butt may be late this weak. Remember, everyone:

Covfefes forever!

Love thy Galactic Enemy

Abandoned to the enemy’s tender mercy

Minta Streave, the naive secretary for a spy team that spread a man-made plague, leaves the planet too late — the team abandons her on the enemy’s space station. She’s must fend for herself until she can contact an elusive spy, Watcher, to take her home. To forestall arrest, she nurses a plague victim — a gentle, whimsical man who quotes Lewis Carroll. But to know this enemy is to love him . . .

When Finn Shanwing falls ill, he doesn’t intend to hide that he’s a high-ranking commando. Nor does he intend to fall in love with the secretive nurse who saves his life. By the time he reveals to Minta that she saved an enemy officer, it’s too late for his heart — or hers. Also too late to escape the wrath of Watcher, half-human, half-machine, and both halves obsessed with her.

Love thy Galactic Enemy is available for pre-order, so reserve your copy now:



  1. Hi, Ed!

    Get well quickly. You definitely don’t want to leave Effing in charge…

    BTW my review of LTGE will be up on my blog on Tuesday. Very entertaining book!

    1. looking forward to reading your opinions, Lisabet!

    Great snippet! Though I wonder what her roommate will think when he wakes.

    All the best in recovering from your surgery!

    1. The situation would a bit of explaining.

  3. Terrific snippet but here’s the big thing going on here…Please put yourself together. Your family needs you and so do we!

  4. Hope your surgery went well and you recover at an astonishing rate! (You really don’t want to trust Effing with spellcheck for another week!). I hope your heroine doesn’t regret crawling into bed with a guy that sick. She can’t know if he’s contagious or not–or what the heck he has! Wonderful snippet!

  5. Best wishes on recovering from the surgery! Best wishes on the new release! And I enjoyed the snippet – she has a good heart but the consequences of her decision might be more than she was anticipating…

  6. I’m rather envious that you can get your cat to write your blog posts. So what if his spelling is rather creative?

    Loved the line about loneliness sucking the warmth from her bones. Made her next move all the more poignant.

  7. Poor guy, hope he feels better soon!

  8. Get back here before the feline adds his name to your book covers! 🙂 No offense, Effing. Feel better soon, Ed.

    PS – hurry. Teh KaT is taKing oVer. (That’s in code).

    PSS – great snippet. Not dead, just asleep is good!

  11. That’s quite an . . .um . . . bedside manner! Wishing you a quick and relatively painless recovery, Ed!

    Got my copy. Can’t wait to read. I’ve so enjoyed your snippets. What will he think when he wakes up??? Oh, my!

    Hope you’re feeling better. Can’t leave Effing in charge for too long.
