Exploring The Universe, One Book At A Time...




First off, if you've made it this far down the list of wonderful Independent Authors from the Lady Amber Reviews Blog Hop, thank you for coming!

I hope you've enjoyed yourself thus far and I hope you'll stay for a moment and visit with me too.

So, I kind of came into this Hop late and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but it came to me that maybe you might like to know just how this whole adventure that is the Spi-Corp Series got started...

Well, I'll tell you...

Back in 2007 I was on my typical two week Christmas Vacation and I had CNN going in the background. My ear happened to catch this line during the opening of a special report they were doing.

The reporter said: Do you know how many women between the ages of 18 and 30 go missing every year in the U.S. and are never heard from again?

Well, of course I didn’t, but it did catch my interest and caused the following “What If” to pop into my brain.

Well, what if they are never heard from again because they’ve been kidnapped by Aliens and sold into the Flesh Markets of Outer Space?

AH HA! The next thing I know, its three days later and the first draft of A First Love Never Dies has been completed…

 
 


Sadly, though, this was only the beginning and it was very rough because I had nothing else to work with. Meaning that while the story itself came out wonderfully, there were a TON and I mean a T-O-N of planet sized holes in it because I didn’t have the foundation of the Universe in place. Fast forward to 2013 and I’ve spent the last 6 years creating that universe – in the background – along with the 17 books in the series. Now, not all of them are complete, but most of them are and those that aren’t are plotted and just waiting for me to get to them. (I'm lookin' at you Book 15, 16 & 17...*grins*)

Anyway, I finally decided this year that it was time to share my Universe with the Blue Marble we call home. Since then I've released Book 1 - A First Love Never Dies and Book 2 - Saving His Love is slated for release July 8.

 
 
I have had a blast writing this series and I hope you'll come along for the ride. If you do, you'll meet all sorts of fun, fascinating Characters, Aliens and Bad Guys, Oh My!
 
So, jump in the co-pilot's seat over there, grab onto something and let's explore, shall we?

    1. Thank you for stopping by Ms. Jill! It's wonderful to see you today. Are you sure you'd only go as far as Saturn? You wouldn't like to visit somewhere beyond our little, tiny corner of the Universe? See what's really out there?

      I'm just curious. I wouldn't mind seeing Saturn either, because honestly, that's probably as far as we'll ever be able to get...in *our* lifetimes anyway.

      Thanks again for stopping by!

  2. Wow, really? Anywhere? I would love to discover a small planet just like Earth where everybody speaks same language, with no countries, no borders, no governments, no armies...

    1. You're not weird Jodi! I had a strange dream similar to that myself. Always wanted to sling-shot around the sun and go back in time...*giggles* Or maybe forward.
