I’m  officially old, folks. The dental assistant had to take an impression of my teeth. Being a serious-minded bloke, I said “Judi, Judi, Judi,” doing my best Cary Grant impression. When I explained what the heck I was doing, the assistant said, “Who’s she?” Suddenly I felt ten years older. My advanced years won’t keep […]

You’re about to be deflowered #mfrwhooks

This is the last hook from Constellation XXI., my sci-fi romance. The last hook, that is, before the book officially releases on Valentines Day. Sienna Dukelsky is a starship pilot on her first solo flight when all power, lights, and mechanical systems on her ship suddenly, inexplicably die. The visor of Sienna’s flight helmet cycled […]

A creature from the distant past #mfrwhooks

Visit this fictional world

So far, the hooks I’ve shared for my upcoming release, Constellation XXI, have included, a cover, a blurb, and the opening paragraphs. Today, something totally different.

Keep that thing away from me #mfrwauthor

After missing a couple weeks, I’m back with a hook from Escapee, a re-release of an award-winning science fiction romance. Catt Sayer and Hector Dukelsky are fleeing an enemy invasion, in an airship.

Defenseless at my feet #mfrwhooks

We’re switching today to the sequel to The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station. The series is called Repelling the Invasion, and it follows members of the Dukelsky family as they get caught up in an  interstellar conflict with the humans from the Proxima star system, aka Proxies.

Dusting off her palms with a theatrical flourish #mfrwhooks

More today from The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, a science fiction romance that’s among my personal favorites because of the heroine. Sandrina is far and away the best character I’ve created — best in the sense of morality, goal in life, and good intentions, even though she’s mute and an outcast. She also has a […]
