Synopsis:

 

The inhabitants of Boucher’s World have been trapped inside a mysterious Dome that has covered nearly their entire continent since shortly after people from Earth arrived on the world a little over two millennia ago. For ages, they have sought a way out, without success.

Then one day, a Human predult, a young woman named Jade, and her Cat partner, Tally, both employees of the leading pest company, Nuisance Apprehenders, Inc., were clearing pests from an area near the Dome wall and accidentally made a remarkable discovery: a door in the wall.

Thus begins the chronicles of what happens when the people of this world – which also includes another race called the Elvwists, and sentient cats and dogs from Earth – finally emerge from what had been a cage for them for so long. Will they be able to contact their home worlds? And what happens to Jade when she is kidnapped by a man who “collects” young women? Will she be rescued in time?

First – A novel

 

The teenage years can be stressful.  It is a time of a lot of “firsts”: first crush; first date; first kiss, even a first heartbreak.

For sixteen-year-old Lyssa Brunner, life is pretty smooth.  Predictable, ordinary, safe.

Until one day it isn’t.

Until she discovers something about her family that’s been withheld from her “for her own good”.

Until she learns she’s not who she thought she was and is hit with some “firsts” she would never have imagined, and her life takes a decided turn for the weird.

Follow her as she struggles to come to terms with an existence that has changed from normal to, irrevocably, “other”.

Synopsis:

Juri Turner, the human-born dragon, has ensured that Mur, the magical world next door to Earth, will never again be endangered by its unstable core.

She has also managed to avoid an unwanted marriage to an utter creep of a dragon, but then, she finds herself in a battle, alongside her dragon guardian, Prince Tetharia, and his sister, Princess Terinia, against a powerful demon who threatens not only the dragon kingdom of Tausarae but also the entire world of Mur.

Meanwhile, two large spaceships of the aliens who invaded Earth over two decades ago, are en route to that planet, chasing runaway human slaves from Alpha Centauri, and behind them are even more of the big ugly creatures called scorbs, with an even larger fleet that if not stopped will scour the planet clean of every human.

Duty-bound, Juri will have to help vanquish the demon and save Mur from falling under its rule, and she is, once again, obligated to help defeat the alien invaders who are hell-bent on destroying the humans of Earth.

Again, the fate of two worlds rests on the small, golden shoulders of one young dragon who never asked for anything more than to be left alone to live out her less than fortunate life in peace.

She will do her best to stand up to all the difficulties involved in performing her duty, but will she be able to handle the unexpected changes these events bring about?

Coming June 30th – Bridge, a novel

 

Randa and Ostrich17

There are many tales from the period in Boucher’s World history known as the Change.  This is one from near the beginning of that time.

The race of beings on Boucher’s World, called Elvwists, are telepathic psychics with various other extra-sensory abilities, and now, suddenly, the new generation of the Humans of that world has been born with these same abilities.  It is an event that will change both societies forever.

Two years after Randa faced  hard changes when her vow-mate left home to go fishing and met with misfortune, she had to take her family and leave her home in the foothills of the mountains, fleeing marauders who would kill her children for being different.  They were rescued by the Elvwists and taken to a village set up for the safety of the new Humans.

Randa is not one of the Changed Humans, having been born six years too early, but this does not worry her and she is neither jealous nor afraid of the new Humans as are some people.  How can she be, when her children are among the Changed?  Her task now is to raise them and figure out how to carve out a place for herself in the much different environs in which she finds herself, and where she has to fight culture shock and loneliness.  Will she be able to bridge the gap between the old ways and the new?

 

This is a sequel to the novelette, Hard Changes

Hard Changes – a novelette

Hard Changes  (a science fiction  novelette) at Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Inktera

What will Randa do when her vow-mate goes fishing and doesn’t return?  She lives in a very isolated area, alone with her children, and without their provider she is the only one who can keep them alive.  Will she be able to handle the task?  Will her mate return?  And what will happen when they finally meet the beings they have been told are demons?

Change can be very hard and it takes flexibility to be able to meet all the challenges that are usually involved.

A story of birth, death, and other changes.

The second book in my Boucher’s World series will be out soon.  I’m aiming for somewhere between June 1st and 15th.  I’m working fast to make that date!

Coming soon!

Coming soon!

In the meantime, the first book in the series, Boucher’s World: Emergent is available atSmashwordsAmazon (where you can also get the paperback, but that costs more so you may want to stick with the ebook), B&NKoboDiesel, Apple (view in iTunes to buy), Sony, and Versant.   Reviews at any of those sites are welcome.  So are comments.
Synopsis: In the year 2347, the people of Earth sent colonists to an uninhabited planet discovered the century before in the star system of Epsilon Eridani.
As it turned out, the world was inhabited; by a race of gentle giants with certain psychic abilities, called Elvwists.  Since the humans couldn’t go back, they had no choice but to come to an agreement with the Elvwists, who fortunately were an amicable race of beings.
A year after their arrival, one day they awakened to discover themselves surrounded by an impenetrable, transparent Dome.  This caused a huge disruption in the societies of both races, with the Elvwists eventually withdrawing behind force shields for their own safety and the humans degenerating into savagery.
Two thousand years later, a way out was finally discovered by a young woman, and the descendants of both races, having reconciled a thousand years before when the humans suddenly developed psychic abilities of their own, emerged from the Dome together.
Boucher’s World: Emergent is the chronicle of how the exit was found, what happens when they leave the Dome, and how some unfortunate things about some humans have not changed in two thousand years.
