horizonshift400x600Imagine waking up after a space battle, finding your crew has been decimated, your ship badly damaged, and you have no idea where you are. Even when you get your equipment working again, you realize you’re in an area of space no one of your species has ever been before.

Lost, and alone.

Temms Rogers has been a commander for the space alliance Confederation for many years, making service his career. But when the Confederation starts bullying planetary governments into submitting to its rule, Rogers and other officers object. Their rebellion leads to a full-out space battle that threatens Rogers’ ship, the Doubtful, as well as several others commanded by his rebel friends. Faced with imminent death, Rogers orders his crew to activate an alien technology installed in their ship for testing. The device says it is to be used at a “desperate” moment.  No one is really sure exactly what will happen–whether the device is a weapon to destroy an enemy or perhaps a shield to protect them.

What does happen, as you see on the cover above, is the device opens a startling wormhole into a new universe. The Doubtful arrives in this untested space, critically damaged from the fight, more 5518991291_8c8164c5cfthan half its crew dead.

The first obstacle? He discovers he’s not quite alone. His former commander Jal Burko, bent on revenge, hasn’t given up the fight, determined to punish Rogers for the rebellion he led.

Desperate, the clock ticking, Rogers enlists an assortment of people to help him rebuild and repair his ship, many of them misfits who deserve a second chance, each with a special talent to share: a runaway bride, a 17-year old navigation whiz sold into slavery, a cocky xenophobic engineer, a pair of genetically engineered lizard-humans. He even finds
a friend aboard he never expected.

A chance meeting with an economic power called the Consortium brings Rogers powerful friends, and the key to putting the clues of this alien technology together. But the appearance of a strange autistic boy, abandoned in the Doubtful’s cargo bay, becomes the catalyst that may save the ship and its crew from Burko’s single-minded hatred when all else fails.

HORIZON SHIFT is the first in the Horizon Crossover series.

In Book II of the Horizon Crossover series, Captain Temms Rogers and the crew of the spaceship Doubtful are caught between a powerful interplanetary group called the Agency and mystical beings known as the Ancients in a struggle to discover the secrets of a mysterious derelict space station.

The Agency has finally had enough of Captain Rogers’ urging for democracy in their region of space.  Rogers soon realizes the Agency intends to use him and the crew of the Doubtful for their purposes or else.  Can he gather the other captains of the sector in rebellion against the Agency, with all its echoes of his earlier battle against the Confederation, and bring down their repressive regime? Or will Rogers once again lead his crew into a fight they cannot win?

And now announcing another book from the Horizon Crossover universe—SIXSHOOTER!

Like space, love has no boundaries.

Valeni Pascual wants to be free to make a living hauling cargo with her spaceship and to understand the shapeshifting alien who presents sometimes as the steamy male Nik and other times as the blonde bombshell Nikki.

As a rebel insurgence builds against the oppressive government known as the Agency, Valeni and Nik/Nikki encounter a sexy Terran cowboy named Garrett Rawls. Since being pulled into this region of space by another mysterious wormhole, Garrett has looked for a way to return to Earth. After meeting Valeni and Nikki, he might have found something worth staying for.

However, dark forces may have a much bigger picture in mind for all of them. Valeni, Nik/Nikki, and Garrett are pulled into a life and death fight that lays bare all of their secrets and their desires. Will they lose everything as the battle against the Agency rages around them or can love pull them through?
