Overview

In the not so distant future humanity begins its' third great age and begins to shoot vast slow moving colony ships off into the inky black distances towards the far off stars. What became of those adventurous souls who risked it all on the chance that they might find better more fulfilling lives on distant unknown worlds, might never have been known. But humanities' interstellar ambitions and ingenuity soon gain an edge as faster than light travel at long last becomes reality. And a second wave of exploration is begun as new ships leap out into the darkness tracing the paths of those first pioneers and seeking out those worlds were those first colony ships drifted through the centuries. The clock turns and a new age is begun as humanity becomes a race of many worlds, many cultures, and new peoples beneath the light of new stars. And with time a new interstellar community and government brings together all those far flung worlds.

In this next age, the Pyrius is just one of many ships darting about between the new and old colonies of humanities expanded territory. But for as much as they are just one tiny dot moving about against a vast landscape of black, the Pyrius is not your average ship and those who call her home are not your average crew. They are smugglers and are descended from families who were among the first to reach out into the dark to explore those stars. They are among those rare and hardy souls who some have called the 'gypsies of the stars', those who choose to call no world home and seek only to see what is beyond the ever changing horizon. Their only concerns are their family, their ship, their cargo, and their next pay day as they shift across the stars on an endless journey. But as they cross between places along a course few would choose to follow a single uncommon event leads them to a rare encounter among the darkness. This seemingly random event first changes their quiet days of sometimes lonely days of unending work, and then it changes the very nature of their lives and the future they might have followed.

Meet the Author

As a substitute of a profile I find hard to make in a reasonable amounts of words, I'd like to offer my philosophy of writing.

Entertainment.
In as few words as possible that is what my books are about.

I wrote them for myself, I personally enjoy re-reading them, I enjoy creating new chapters in on going themes, and I decided to publish them on the chance some few might enjoy them. I did not write them with the intent of publication, I did not publish them with dreams of avarice, and I only, truly hope that there are readers out there who enjoy them as much as I do.

I cannot and I will not promise my readers will like my hobby, agree with my views, or find any entertainment in what I have written. My books were not written for everyone, hence not everyone will like them.

I will do my best to offer the best 'product' to my readers as I am able. I can not yet promise a mistake free experience, but I am one who is never satisfied. Each time I re-read my own words I find changes I wish to make. And I will do my best to leave notice when new editions are available.

Because just as each work I offer to the public might never quite seem finished, the ideas behind them were a process of creation and re-creation. Each thing I bring into the world has been written and re-written time and time again, and they never seem perfect to me no matter how many times they are re-imagined.

Just because you have liked something I have written be it free or not, is not a reason why you will like what else is written. My writing is an organic process, many stories have nothing save a beginning or a future image in my head I wish to make a world in order to play out.

However from that moment after I begin all bets are off, the story can and will evolve from there and become whatever it and the characters may make of it. Just as I can not argue that I am like most any writer, nor can I see any reason in trying to be. I see no need to be 'like' anything, why should my books be 'like' any other book, and I see no reason for 'my books' to be 'like' my other books. Why should the next book be what worked for the one before? Why should I worry if my readers will have the same choices as me as to what 'would have been interesting'?

Do not buy my books without trying them, but also do not buy them if you are going to be disappointed if you don't get what you are expect.. Be it a thrilling plot-twisted action film in print, or a heartfelt romance, my books will not be exactly one thing. I make no promises in my writing but it can also be said I do not fear to follow the chanced inspiration, even if it might re-write the entire unborn ending of a story.
