They, like their predecessors, will stop at nothing to take it, including kidnapping, torture, and murder. As the Stangls’ noose tightens, Miles and Luke are … [Read More ...]

My good friend, Tali Spencer, and I were talking about our upcoming blog posts, and we got to thinking—*squints* I saw some y’all cringe just now—about the type of books we write. She often focuses on fantasy/sci-fi, where as I mostly write paranormal/sci-fi.

But the one thing we have in common is that we write beings who are not human.

So what drew me to this? There are no easy answers. I’ve read science fiction as far back as I can remember. I grew up on Star Trek. Then the SyFy channel arrived, and I was in heaven. The idea of taking a character and making it into something more appealed to me. It always has. An alien could have any color skin, eyes, hair, extra body parts—whatever my imagination came up with. It’s a thrill I can’t explain.

In my sci-fi books, I’ve created aliens who had … [Read More ...]

He wears his clan’s forbidden plaid with pride, awaiting the day he becomes Laird, restores his family’s name, and fights to free Scotland from English tyranny. An Englishman in his home? Abomination! Yet the tutor his father engaged for Aillil’s younger brothers may have something to teach the Callaghan heir as well.

Violinist and scholar Malcolm Byerly fled Kent in fear, seeking nothing more than a quiet post, eager minds to teach, and for no one to learn his secrets. He didn’t count on his charges’ English-hating barbarian of an older brother, or on red-and-green tartan concealing a kindred soul. A shared love of music breaks down the barriers between two worlds.

Aillil’s father threatens their love, but a far more dangerous enemy tears them apart. They vanish into legend.

Two centuries later, concert violinist Billy Byerly arrives at … [Read More ...]
