  ~Space Trippers Book 1~



Exiled Virrillian Engineer Valesque Rhaugh has been hiding out in Earthian space while working on her newest project, when suddenly her unfinished ship is commandeered by an old enemy, with her on board! To make matters worse she is getting blamed when her long lost device is found on the ship and strands them all in uncharted space. Can she figure out what is happening in time? Or will they all be destroyed by her own hand?


Valesque burst through the doors of the room and into a chaotic mess of people running and shouting amid ship systems starting to go haywire. Lights began to flicker; control panels began to flash off and on randomly
as the powerful drumming of the engines became louder and louder.

The crew was panicked, a Viper ship was about to fire on them and their own ship was suddenly out of control, their destruction seemed imminent. Valesque heard the engines switch as her ship shuddered, feeling as if it were preparing for an abrupt jump, just as the other vessel fired off its weapons. Either way, there was only one thing to do. "Brace yourself!"

~Space Trippers Book 2~

Just Passing Through

The adventure continues as Tim rescues an alien damsel in distress. With the ship in need of food stores, thanks to Lola and her fiasco in the hydroponics lab, the green girl leads them to a nearby trade planet. But the trade aliens seem a little too interested in Valesque for Tim and Sanic's comfort. When she goes missing it is up to them to retrace her last few hours aboard ship, and they become quite disturbed when they find much more than they bargained
for in the secret recesses of the ship's twisting corridors.

"Who dares disturb my lair?" an eerie, watery voice demanded from behind them. Tim and Sanic spun in alarm at the unexpected sound, only to be confronted
by an even more unnerving sight.
Floating in the air was the dark figure of a woman, hands raised with pointed, claw-like nails aimed at them as they stood in shock below her.




 Space Trippers Book 3: A Frosty Farewell

 ~Space Trippers Book 3~

A Frosty Farewell

The ship is in need of water, so, using the map Valesque found on Capecea, the crew sets off to icy Glidz, the nearest water trade planet. Meanwhile, Valesque has unlocked some disturbing secret files on one of the upper crewmen. Long hidden secrets that could change the entire life of one person onboard.
With their record in the area so far, will our heroes be able to get the water they need from the tempermental Water Princess?
And if they do, will they be going home with one less crewmate?


Merena pursed her lips together as she gave the argonaut Engineer a loathsome glare. "I doubt the people would appreciate your ruining their trade by revealing the secret of the waters either." she disapproved.
"It's not like I am going to publish a paper." the Virrilian dismissed, as she pushed the rolled up sweater sleeves further up her arms. ?I just want to see how it works...
and see if we can get some water so we can be on our way." she justified.
"What you are likely to get is the rest of us in trouble." Merena grumbled in annoyance.

"Uh, oh." Valesque shrugged apologetically to Sanic as arms reached down to seize them.




 Space Trippers Book 4: Will Work For Parts

genre: SciFi, Adventure, Series, NA, touch of romance

~Space Trippers Book 4~

 Brass Hearts

A Steampunk Fairytale

338 pages paperback

Genre- Romance, NA, Old-fashioned Romance, Clean Romance, Light Steampunk







Ebook- Amazon


All Dulcy Spry wants in life is to inherit her father's small, family business, and help run it while she waits. But after a fateful encounter with the snobbish Mr Pridget on the roadside Dulcy's best friend, Alise, and younger sister, Rosa, drag the reluctant Miss Spry into high society, where lies, manipulations and family secrets threaten to ruin her peaceful life and cast her into the dismal prison of an unwanted marriage.

Brass Hearts is a Cinderella-esque type story. It is a sweet, old fashioned romance, complete with bad impressions, lies, misunderstandings and social divide.

I would call this light steampunk, it does not focus on tech and gadgetry or air pirates and there are no weapons ever fired in the book. The characters live in a steam powered world that is a mix of Victorian, Early 1900's, Modern day and futuristic.



~Space Trippers Book 5: Don't Even Ask~

genre: SciFi, Adventure, Series, NA, touch of romance



Valesque is only one step away from meeting her mysterious contact!

All she has to do is follow a map to a certain planet and talk to a guy named Melwesúl. Sounds simple enough?

But how do you find someone on a planet where the answer to every question comes from the barrel of a gun? Our heroine's only chance is to butter up the planet's chauvinistic leader. But can no-nonsense Valesque, who couldn't even manage to flirt with peaceful Skmead, really fool the macho gunslinger?

Or will she end up just another notch on his well-worn grip?
