I am a native of Louisiana and current resident of Lake Charles. An avid and frequent reader of science fiction and fantasy, I began writing in the eleventh grade. I am a graduate of McNeese State University in Lake Charles. I am a 'classic nerd' and prolific writer who has had dreams of authorship since childhood. I sketch perhaps even more prolifically than I write, and have drawings of just about every character my warped imagination has come up with. I hope to continue sharing these ideas, characters, and stories with others for years to come.
Turned at a tender age, and left with no memory of her human life, Elisa, the beloved adopted daughter of Talante, has had many obvious difficulties in her near two centuries of life, but none so frustrating as her inability to find love - that is until a dire mission leads her to Derek, another vampire turned in his formative years, and the de facto leader of a clan of vagabonds: vampires who choose to take no sides in the ten millennia long war between her symbiotic clan and the dominating breed of her father's hated enemy. But her happiness is only a prelude to heartbreak as she learns secrets of a past she thought erased, which may cost her the trust and love of the one who holds the greatest portion of her heart.
After the fracturing, there was war. After the war came the all-powerful League, subsuming all interdimensional trade, commerce, and travel under its aegis with the I-Link Network, now a ubiquitous presence in the lives of humans and off-planers. Its paramilitary contingent was known as enforcers.
Kate Barnes is one enforcer out of many, a face among the faceless, her life careening towards a reunification with her past, sowing the seeds of unexpected change in this eclectic world.
A Night at Pink’s
Kate Barnes, enforcer for the multi-universe spanning League, enjoys the company of her closest friend, Jackie, a cybernetic techie for I-Link security. But through seemingly inane conversation, she discovers something more insidious about her friend.
Alicia Barnes, Kate’s estranged sister, lives her life on the edge with drugs and I-Link shenanigans, her glory days as the frontwoman for the transdimensional rock sensation Ambush a distant memory –until her stunts access the wrong bit of data. But will the results kill her before the drugs do? Or will they begin a new life for her?
It is a routine systems check for the cybernetics of Kate’s symbiotic uniform, and then an investigation call that turns out to be anything but routine, especially with Mukai, her off-planer friend and colleague, leading them into a crossroads that may be more than they believe, and one may not survive.
Alicia, reunited with both her sister and Kumai, the former manager of her band after a heartbreaking absence, makes a discovery about herself and the off-planer that has attached herself so deeply into her life, turning both their worlds upside-down in a way that neither one ever expected.
