A Diversion in Time…

Right now, I’m working on Flying through Fire, book 6 in my Dark Desires series. The books are essentially space opera (I got the urge to write them after watching Firefly for the third time) and follow the adventures, romantic and otherwise, of the crew of the space ship, the Blood Hunter. But along with the space stuff, there also more than a hint of paranormal, as Rico, the pilot of the Blood Hunter, is a vampire. My editor refers to the series as Vamps in Space, but in fact there are far more than vampires; there are werewolves, demons, aliens and more recently, dragons (actually alien/dragons.)

Flying through Fire is supposed to be the last book in the series. I’m really struggling with it, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t want it to end. So when I got the chance to write a short story for inclusion in an anthology, The Dragon Chronicles, I thought why not take a look at what happens after the end of Flying through Fire. And so my story, A Diversion in Time, came about.

The Dragon Chronicles (The Future Chronicles)


Dradragon chroniclesgons. They are more than a memory from an age of wizards and heroes. These winged, fire-breathing beasts soar through the traditions of many lands, and through our dreams. In their many guises – Western or Eastern, reptile or lizard or serpent, wyvern, hydra, basilisk – dragons embody everything that we humans call magic.

A Diversion in Time 

At last there is peace in the Universe. But some people just aren’t interested in peace, so once the dust has settled, the crew of the Blood Hunter set off in search of a little excitement. They are heading back to Earth and going back in time.

Along for the ride, are a couple of stowaways. Angel, a young werewolf in search of adventure, and Kronus, an ancient dragon, seeking to regain the power his people once wielded. But when things don’t go entirely as planned, can the two overcome their differences and help each other find what they are looking for?

The Dragon Chronicles releases on April 30th and is available for pre-order here!
