New Year, New Book, New Direction

As Edie said in her post on Monday, after eleven years of blogging on Magical Musings, we’ve decided to take a step back. This has been a happy and friendly place for a long time for me, and I hope for the readers and authors who’ve joined us here.

I’ve gone from a historical author to writing science fiction romance / space opera, and a bit of fantasy as well along the way.

Tomorrow, my latest book, the first in a new science fiction romance trilogy, is out. SKY RAIDERS is a book I’ve been working on for over three years, so it’s a big day for me. I hope it finds the same success as my Class 5 series has, I certainly loved writing it.

To everyone I’ve interacted with or had as a guest on this blog, thank you for all the great memories, and best wishes to all of you. I’m still very much around, on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and my own website. Please, please, please don’t be a stranger.



First they flew their mysterious sky craft through the skies of Barit. Then they started attacking. Finally, they began to raid.

Garek’s one year of duty as a guard walking the walls of Garamundo was extended to two when the sky raiders appeared. Two long years away from home and his lover, Taya. When he finally returns, the town is empty. While Garek was protecting Garamundo, the sky raiders were taking their victims from his hometown.

Taya can’t bear looking into the night sky. All she can see is Barit, her home planet. Impossibly, the sky raiders have brought her and their other victims to Shadow, the planet that shadows her own, and looking up makes her aware of everything she’s lost. Garek is out there somewhere. She knows he’ll look, but he’ll never find her.

She and the other captives have to find a way to escape. Without the food and clothes the sky raiders bring them from their raids on Barit, they’ll starve on the almost barren wastes of Shadow. And when they’ve given the sky raiders enough of what they want, that’s exactly what the sky raiders will leave them to do.

What Taya doesn’t realize is she’ll have some help with her plan. Because Garek isn’t giving up on finding her. And he’s even more resourceful than she could ever have imagined.

Nothing is going to keep him from Taya. Not even space itself.

SKY RAIDERS is the first book in the Sky Raiders trilogy. Book 2, CALLING THE CHANGE, will be out later in 2017.
