Overview

Rise of the Alien Queen is the story of Susan Allen, a foul mouthed, about to be divorced housewife, and mother of two grown children. She is suffering from depression and grappling with what to do next after the failure of her marriage. Her philandering husband has hidden all of their assets and she can't even get a job at the local DollarLand.

While attempting to rescue the pilot of a crashed alien spacecraft, Susan inadvertently gets caught up in an off-world adventure filled with romance, politics, deceit and murder.

Rise of the Alien Queen is a riff on the current crop of romance and paranormal literature with humorous and often biting commentary on our current politics, racism, and the mistreatment of women. Religion, misogyny, ageism, rape culture, fat shaming, and an evil ambassador are ever present as the heroine navigates her way through yet another hostile and unforgiving world.

It's time for Susan to decide; will she give up on everything and wallow in her depression and self-pity? Or will she rise up and become the woman she was always meant to be?

About the Author

R.A.L. Phillips is a California native with a political science degree from UCLA. She grew up on a steady diet of science fiction, historical romance novels, and a boisterous, politically bent family – all of which is reflected in her debut novel; Rise of the Alien Queen. She admits that portions of the book mirror her own life, but denies that she ever bludgeoned anyone to death. She has been a volunteer for the Sexual Assault Response Program of Lynchburg, a Court Appointed Special Advocate for the children of Los Angeles, and a voracious supporter of Suicide Awareness Voices of Education and the Me Too Movement. Like the singer, Kesha - R.A.L. Phillips is waiting for her starship to come back for her.

Transplanted to the Ozarks, she lives with her husband, a variety of children, and a menagerie of rescued pets. Her hobbies include pickleball, karaoke, red wine, and the trolling of the many misogynists, racists and bigots who are ever-present on the internet. She is passionate about racial equality, LGBTQ rights and the empowerment of women everywhere.
