The Razia Series2020-01-09T08:32:17-06:00

The Razia series is a space opera that follows the misadventures of Dr. Lyssa Peate – a young woman leading two very complicated lives. As Razia the space pirate bounty hunter, she’s the least wanted person in the universe. As Lyssa the scientist, she’s just been assigned a new intern, who is most definitely spying on her. Things get worse when that intern is mistaken for the space pirate’s hostage by the universal police.

All four full-length novels are available for sale in paperback, hardcover, and eBook. The full series is also available in an eBook box set, containing even more bonus content.

On Unlikeable Characters and the Bitchy Bounty Hunter

My Beginnings Brain Wave

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 […]

The Problem with Conviction

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

In the […]

Femininity in Science Fiction

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 […]

The Peates

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 […]
