On Unlikeable Characters and the Bitchy Bounty Hunter

By |2017-03-20T10:00:58-05:00July 24th, 2016|Razia|

Lyssa Peate, my female bounty hunter, is an interesting character. For me, having known this crumpet since I was fifteen, I know her ins and outs and motivations. It’s been interesting to watch others get to know her. But man, she’s a hard gal to love.

She’s mean, she’s angry, she’d […]

Saying Goodbye to Razia

By |2017-03-16T14:24:12-05:00June 17th, 2016|Razia|

Two major milestones this past weekend (I’m so late on this…). First and foremost, on Sunday, I turned 30. Secondly, also on Sunday, I released the final pieces of my very first complete series. I can’t believe I’m saying goodbye to Razia.

For those who’ve been living under a rock, or […]

My Beginnings Brain Wave

By |2017-03-14T08:42:29-05:00January 18th, 2016|Razia|

So remember that Space Pirate series? For the past few months, I’ve been working on the fifth book, Beginnings. For the longest time, I thought it would be a full-length prequel, telling the story of how eleven-year-old, snot-nosed brat Lyssa Peate became the adult snot-nosed brat Razia. And for the […]

The Problem with Conviction

By |2017-03-07T16:04:11-06:00March 19th, 2015|Razia, Writing Woes|

I’ve been having some trouble writing Conviction, the third Razia book.

Now, nobody panic. It’s not like I’m giving up or anything like that. But I wanted to be blog a little about the frustration with this damned book, more so I maybe can find a nugget of wisdom to keep […]

Double Life, the first book in the science fiction series Razia is a study in what happens when a person has no self-worth. Lyssa is overcompensation city. Like most of us, her idea of self-worth formed when she was a kid.

In the book, the dominant religion subscribes to […]

Femininity in Science Fiction

By |2017-03-06T10:27:35-06:00January 12th, 2015|Razia|

With the Razia series, I had a chance to play with the idea of femininity in science fiction. In Double Life, Lyssa was portrayed as very un-feminine. In fact, she spends a great deal of time downplaying her gender to gain more respect from the all male pirates. Still, as […]

The Peates

By |2017-03-20T11:34:34-05:00August 20th, 2014|Razia|

Today, I thought I’d provide a little more background on the inspiration and character description for Lyssa’s mutually-hated-family, the Peates.

In 2005, I went to go visit one of my dear friends in the land of Sverige (that’s Sweden for you uncultured swine). Along the way, we visited (what […]
