Middle Child Press: January 2013


The Creative Network

It’s funny how ideas connect between people.  It’s fascinating how one person’s creative muse can channel and inspire the muse of another.  It’s actually wonderful when it happens, because I don’t believe it is something that happens regularly, at least in my experience.

As you may or may not know, my partner in crime and fellow lunatic Ankhesen Mié began work on a series heavily inspired and influenced by Grey’s Anatomy and Star Trek called “Gaya’s Astronomy.”  Whether you’re a fan of these shows or not doesn’t matter, as the series stands alone and doesn’t require familiarity of either canon.  Gaya’s Astronomy follows the adventures and exploits of a group of Ensigns shortly after graduating from Starfleet Academy.  I highly recommend it; it’s well-written, laugh-out-loud funny and the characters are fascinating and memorable…and *lowers head and whispers* just recently, she introduced a character inspired by my second baby’s daddy, Rick Yune, but that’s neither here nor there.  *back in regular voice*  Ankh treats GA like an actual TV show; it has an opening montage and soundtrack, and the volumes are set up as seasons, and each episode is a chapter.  We’re nearly at the end of Season 4 and just when you think Ankh can’t go any further, she does and tops herself.  Hence the beauty of the muse.

Tainted, an Excerpt...

The following is an excerpt from my upcoming novel Tainted:


Kemme recognized the large envelope the moment it was handed to her. It felt just like the others; same texture, same weight. She knew what it contained.  Leseda and Grace, her sisters, turned to look.

"Another one?" Grace asked.

"What's that make, six?" Leseda inquired.

"Yep.  Six."

"No return address?"


Kemme opened the envelope, a 12 x 15 flat made of some expensive textured material, and carefully removed a black folder.  Leseda and Grace were by her side immediately, ogling as she opened it. 

"Oh wow, this one's different," Grace said.
