What started out as a single horse book turned into a science fiction series. That isn’t the only thing my mind is creating. YA, more sci-fi, and fantasy too. Not sure where my imagination will lead me next.
Stars of Heros
A twenty-six book series that spans from the 21st Century to the 26th Century and beyond. The series title is a tribute to, and a word play on, the main themes in the books: horses, space, family, and heroes. Whether ordinary people or aliens, these heroes try to make a difference on their home world. Heros is not a misspelling of heroes. It’s a word play on the main themes of the series and can be traced back to Paleo-Balkan mythology.

The Fantasy Reject League
Mel is a human girl who gets lost in fantasy stories because it’s her only refuge from the bullies at school. She meets imperfect fantasy characters in the books she reads. At first, they are just imaginary people to her, but then slowly she discovers her hidden talent of being able to live and interact with their world. It really freaks her out when somehow she brings them back to hers.
For now this is planned as a trilogy. It could, however, expand into other stories that switch between Mel and the characters’ worlds and even bring in a few more. Crossovers with Stars of Heros and the character from As Time Slips By are possible.
Not So Perfect World
A perfect world where thoughts create a filtered reality (positive thought allowed, negative ones reformed). People can talk to animals and live with them as companions. Inspiration and imagination are both dead and alive. Then a flaw is triggered in the master program (think Heartbleed on a much larger scale). People must relearn even the most basic skills, including dealing with the animals without being able to understand them.
Plans are for this to remain a single book, but it could turn into a trilogy depending on the plotting of the story.
The adventures of two beings, energy and matter. One can’t exist without the other, but losses are suffered on both sides when they join. They are immortal, but, at times, finite. It’s the most philosophical of my ideas and will encompass at least three books.
As Time Slips By
The unnamed main character loses track of time. Not intentionally or through some sleep disorder. They get involved in something and hours pass or they day dream and find themselves transported to another world. At first they dismiss this as fantasy, but soon discover the worlds are real and they are there for a reason. Planned as a single book, for now.
For now this is going to remain part of the SOH universe. Besides having the tech and characters for it, the “What if?” concept of the series wraps itself nicely around the alternate reality premise of the idea. At least seven books are planned.
