Hello and Welcome.
I have been writing science fiction since I was twelve years old (more than forty years), in love with the technology and idea of space travel, yet put off by those early impersonal tales available back then in the early 1970s. I spent those years mentally rewriting stories “to be better” and my writing took off from there.
In my life I have enjoyed many different experiences and have undertaken many areas of training to enhance my writing skills and to write from experience. Click on Bio for more.
In upcoming posts I will discuss why I write the way I do, what research I have engaged in and enter into discussion brought up by commenters in this blog. So feel free to raise a topic germane to science fiction, writing in general, research and so on. You do not need to be a writer to join in, everyone is welcome. For those who do write, I do not and will not presume to tell anyone how to write, each creator must be true to their own soul, I can only speak from my own experiences, trials and errors.
Blog rules are fairly light (please see site policy), so you can relax and be yourself. I hope you enjoy your visit and come back again.
WARNING: The Khekarian Series is meant for mature readers. If you are uncomfortable with realism, swearing, adult themes, occult themes, violence and descriptive sex, read no further, my work is probably not for you.
The Khekarian Threat, Book One in the Khekarian Series, is available now in paperback and Kindle. Click on The Khekarian Threat tab for more details or click the book cover on the side of this page to be taken to Amazon books directly.
I will shortly provide information on my next book in the series, The Imperial Son, due out approximately July 2013. I will post updates as to its progress and that of the next one along, etc.
Thank you for visiting. 🙂

I think what you’re doing is very great and very brave to be doing. I wish you great luck with it.
Thank you so much. I hope you’ll come and chat lots – I plan this to be a fairly relaxed place to be. 🙂
Great book. Excellent writing.
Best of luck with this and future projects.
Thank you, Beth. That means a lot to me. 🙂
Hi Allyson, Ive just finished sharing Aleisha’s journey and I jumped straight onto Amazon to down load the next installment, only to find I have to wait until the middle of the year???? Im shattered….
Does that give you an idea of just how much I enjoyed your writing? Im an avid sci fo fan and this series falls right into my comfort zone, thanks so much and get back to work!
Wow, Rob, thank you so much. Yes, sir, I’m working as fast as I can. 🙂
Does it help to let you know I’ve over-estimated my ETA for “The Imperial Son”? It is halfway complete now and I’m thinking it might only be four months away, but wanted to allow myself room so as not to disappoint should I get held up along the way.
I’m thrilled you enjoyed “The Khekarian Threat”. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the next one. Cheers, and thank you for your kind words.
Thanks Allyson, Im certainly looking forward to your next read. I may have to read the original just before the new one hits us. The quality of your writing lends me to think I will be hearing more of you in the years to come. I certainly hope so, in my mind, my experience with ‘top shelf’ authors is how I lose myself when reading, I find myself actually seeing the action, as I did in your last boook. Anyway big warm welcome from Australia.
Hi again, Rob. Your words are music to my ears, thank you so much. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I plan to be around for awhile. My heart and soul are very much in The Khekarian Series, I’ve put a lot of time, effort and research into it and the characters are very alive to me. I am glad you could see the action, which is exactly what I want (and do) when I write it. I want readers to “be there”. I have at least six books that will fit against the Khekarian backdrop and therefore into the series. Initially it was three books, expanded to four, but now I find as I spread my imagination out across the galaxy, it seems to form more arcs and arms (the galaxy AND my imagination, both). Opportunities and pathways open up and suddenly there’s space for another story. Quality is most important, so as long as I can keep that to the standard of the first book in the series, I aim to keep going. 🙂
I like that you may read The Khekarian Threat over again. I’d say that’s a great way of doing it and will keep the flow from one book to the next.
By the way, a warm welcome back at you, I’m Australian, too. Cheers! 🙂
I am intrigued. Your blog is very interesting and indeed laid back. Keep on blogging and I will follow your posts. Thanks for following my blog. TC JBC 🙂
Hi Jazzy – thank you for that. I don’t aim to stop blogging anytime soon. Cheers! 🙂
🙂 Better not! JBC
Hey, JBC, I’m liking you more and more! 😀
Back at ya! JBC 🙂
Wow. Yours looks like a fine blog and more. Do any of your book come on eBook mostly Nook for the time being. I still need to preview your writing more but at a glance look to be of interest. 🙂
Hey, thank you so much! My books are with Amazon and Kindle, but if you don’t have Kindle, Amazon has a free downloadable kindle app for your PC, smartphone, etc., etc. (I can guide you there, if you wish it).
As for previewing my work – I’m in complete agreement there. I have the first four and a half chapters (about 65 pages) of the first book, set out in individual chapters so that you can get a feel for it. I’d far rather you know what you’re getting, and want it, than be disappointed. Links to these chapters and other segments are in the right hand margin and also in the dropdown menu.
Thank you so much for popping over and having a look. I post every day – a lot of waffle, some fun, usually about writing or research (hands-on).
Cheers to you! 😀
