bookThe final journey of the starship Aeon has reached yet another world—a hopeful new beginning after the disastrous events in Downfall Tide. In Star Crossing, the children of Aeon encounter wonders and terrors, aliens and friends, in a place stranger than anything they ever imagined. It's like a Bermuda Triangle in space . . . half as old as time. But even here, faith and hope endure, and love is stronger than death.

bookOn a mission to find a new world and found a new civilization without repeating Earth's past mistakes, the starship Aeon reaches a mild green planet with an oceanic moon veiled in hurricanes. Aeon's astronauts and scientists soon plunge into a season of crisis. They face death and love, discovery and disaster with no going back--and no certainty that humanity has a future on Planet Green with its hurricane moon.

bookMy e-book novella A Pillar of Stars by Night consists of three novelettes originally published in Analog magazine, now combined into one story. By the late 21st Century, Earth’s ecosystem may be damaged beyond repair. Two young life scientists struggle with the decision whether or not to join an exodus to a new world on the other side of the stars. Their skills will be critical in creating a new ecosystem on a barren colony world. But no one knows whether such an undertaking is even possible. To try and fail would mean the death of every hope and every hopeful colonist—unless something utterly unexpected changes the odds.

A Pillar of Stars by Night and my other e-book stories are available here.
