Oldie 01: Vanessa Wakes

I wrote this back in 1994 as a test for a story idea I was working on. I found it again back in 2012 and found inspiration from it as I embarked on my current writing projects. Here it is, in its largely unedited format:

A skull crunched under the gleaming boot, crumbling spontaneously into a cloud of black dust. Servos whined within the armored leg as balance was readjusted, and with just the slightest hesitation the trek was continued. The power source was tanta­lizingly close, a faint ebbing echo that hinted at life on a world over ten millennia dead.… Read the rest...

Snippet 02 from: Crow – Vindication

Here is a short snippet from Book 3: Crow – Vindication. There are those who desperately want to exclude Steven from the paradise that the Cooperative represents. There are ominous signs that hint at the destruction of the Cooperative either by Steven’s hands or vicariously through him. But there is growing support for him. Steven is the only deviant who is not a monster and there is intense curiosity about him. Orin, a Keratian gatekeeper and Guildmaster and the primary head of the Chaser guild that is responsible for hunting deviants, recognizes the danger of this curiosity and takes matters into his own hands to eliminate this threat.… Read the rest...

Snippet 01 from: Crow – Vindication

Here is a short snippet from Book 3: Crow – Vindication. Steven is seen as a terrifying monster by a vast alien community called the Cooperative. There is a rift forming between those worlds that are calling for his immediate termination, and the few that have allied with him. Within this environment, Steven must find a way to prove his benevolent intentions, and to clear his life-mate who had been banished because of her relationship with him.

Raising the Tree

An Ordan arrived with a gatekeeper to help remove the tree so repairs could be made to the other damaged tree houses.… Read the rest...

Snippet 03 from: Crow – Acceptance

From the first chapter of Book 2: Crow – Acceptance. Steven is considered a threat to the greater alien community. However, he is also considered a curiosity. So much so that an Elf was sent to investigate and perhaps even neutralize him. From his perspective, she was there to determine if he would be welcome in the alien community.

Lorei and Steven

Lorei cocked her head, looking at him. She put her hand on his face again, shuddering a little as she entered into his tormented thoughts. She bit her lip as she dug deeper, trying to see if his guilt was genuine.… Read the rest...

Snippet 02 from: Crow – Acceptance

Here is a little raw and unedited snippet from my second book in the Crow series: Crow – Acceptance. Here is a little glimpse of an encounter between Steven’s main antagonist – Laurence, and a Cooperative Chaser sent to give him tools that would enable him to complete his mission against Steven. Laurence is my favorite antagonist in this series.

Laurence meets Miryam

Suddenly Laurence froze. He sensed the slightest movement. In an instant he had his pistol in his hand as he spun around, already scanning the room to acquire a target. A petite hand grabbed the gun before he could get it in position and painfully ripped it from his grasp.… Read the rest...
