Works, and works in progress

I’ve taken my comedic science fiction novel about the effects of a powerful aphrodisac on a remote planetary colony, first published in 2001, and updated it in 2013. Perigee now has new scenes and updated language and technology. I tried negotiating with the publisher to get the prices of both the print and ebook formats reduced, since the prices currently set for these is ridiculously high, but no deal. I have plans to eventually take this book, revise it yet again and add a novella or two, then republish with someone else.

I also have written a number of short stories, some of which feature the adventures of Canadian superspies Agent Diamond and Charming Guy, and those were freely available on Smashwords. I’ve taken these down temporarily while I consider adding a few more stories and publishing them more formally.

Current works-in-progress include several more Agent Diamond and Charming Guy short stories, a fantasy cookbook, and many other science fiction, fantasy and crime/mystery novels. The one I have recently finished a draft of (Infinity) deals with time travel, bipolar dreams, quantum entanglement of neurons, wormholes, an assassination plot and a variety of hideous floral arrangements. Another (Anagama) is partly finished, and deals with a future dystopia in which genetically modified human beings who are no longer given the same rights as other humans must fight for survival. I had finished a draft of Anagama but wasn’t satisfied, so I am rewriting most of it.

I am one quarter of the way through another (Diamond) which deals with the transformation of an abused woman from victim to triumphant nemesis, with the help of goddesses. Right now I am focusing on a lighthearted fantasy (Wings) in which the archangel Uriel intervenes in human affairs to help a bipolar writer. Finally, there’s an idea for a spy thriller with a bit of a twist which I am calling Cloak.  I am waiting to see what happens in the Trump administration before plotting the climax and ending to Cloak.

I also have ideas for additional novels or story anthologies based on more of my dreams or musings. The year 2017 and this year so far have brought me many story ideas, all of which I’ve registered with WGA West (there are upwards of twenty).

I write for fun rather than for profit, and I enjoy hearing from people who have enjoyed my work.
