I blame Robotech…
When I was younger, I watched this amazing animated series and then devoured the Jack McKinney novelizations. Somewhere along the way, I realized that the part I would discuss with my friends wasn’t the cool technology, or the amazing action sequences – I was pulled into the wonderful, painful love triangle between Lisa, Rick and Lynn Minmei. All that setting, and there is plenty, only mattered as to how it drove the characters together and apart. And thus an SFR aficionado was born.
When I started writing seriously, I ended up all over the map. I dabbled in most of the speculative fiction genres with varying degrees of success, until I remembered the thing that really caught me about Robotech – the coolest technology in the galaxy is worthless unless you have someone who cares about you to share it.
So I started writing the stories I really wanted to read – sweeping tales of galactic empires in decline, and love on the hardscrabble rim of civilization. Romance in both the classical and understood senses of the word, with brave, tough-as-nails heroines and the people determined to win their hearts. A future where people get their happily ever after. Hopefully, you’ll find them as enjoyable as I do.
