My newest book, Raptor, a novella in the Relics of the Ancients universe, is now available on all retailers!
Raptor is the second prequel story I’ve written in this space opera world, and was part of the stretch goal rewards for the Kickstarter I ran last fall.
Now that there are two prequels, I created a side-series called Starfighter Origins to link them together. Each story stands alone, however, so read in whatever order you like!
Raptor tells the origin story of Captain Casey Osprey—as a younger, heartbroken girl who just lost her mother and is fighting with her father as they both try to figure out what life means after a heartbreaking loss. Casey gets sent to Polar Prep Fleet Academy… where she has to find a place for herself, face up to bullies, and learn the true meaning of friendship.
I plan to write one more novella this year to round out the trilogy and the rewards promised to backers. There’s also the second full-length novel in the pipeline, Hidden Relics, which is scheduled for release in July, and the third novel, Rogue Swarm, which I’m writing now and will be released next April.
Until then, please enjoy Raptor!
Shipped off to Polar Prep Fleet Academy, Casey grieves the death of her mother while struggling to find a place among her peers.
She hates it. Why did her father have to send her away? It feels like he doesn’t love her anymore.
With the memory of her mom festering like a raw wound, Casey’s experience at school goes from bad to worse when she stands up to Renata Spector, the most popular girl in school.
People at Polar Prep are not what they seem, and the only one looking out for Casey is herself. To survive Renata’s torments, and keep her fragile existence from tumbling down around her ears, Casey has to be braver than she’s ever been.
Or risk losing herself altogether.
Raptor is a tale of becoming and bravery, of a young woman finding herself and learning the difference between right and wrong. This is a standalone novella in the Relics of the Ancients space opera universe about the formative years of one of the bravest starfighter pilots in the Solaran Fleet.
