In the first clannet mission which includes the Izeni family of planet Sutar, the houseship Saternis heads for a star that faded from Sutarian view about 200 years ago. There she finds the dimming sun, and the solar system of Ogtha which has all but been destroyed; only the one whole planet remains. In the name of working on their solar problem, however, the Ogthan scientists are involved with making clones and androids of themselves to “perpetuate their race.”
Eventually the clannet learns about the pirates who came from Gnorlon and destroyed the rest of the system. Leaving Fondlo Urzer’s family behind, the Saternis travels there to attempt an alliance, but the pirates capture them instead. It takes bold ingenuity to escape them and return to Ogtha.
Meanwhile, Fondlo’s family discover a renegade scientist named Efallan who wastes his time making clay animals, just because he can. He winds up not only threatening his visitors, but his own people as well. Can the houseship Saternis finally unite the two races?
Meet the clannet of the houseship Saternis. Their maiden voyage lands them on Sutar, a planet wracked by racial division and violence. It is so bad that most of the oppressed race has been exiled to nearby Kyan, and no one on Sutar can turn things around. Though the clannet resists getting involved at first, eventually it becomes obvious only disinterested “pink skinned” outsiders can reunite the races.
Not so easily done, since it puts them at odds with rioters and snipers, and a swarm of shuttles firing deadly beams. The opposing force is led by Hazmun and Azutiz, two young rebels whose prejudice and lust drives them to harass the aliens at every turn. Hazmun attempts to seduce the captain's daughter Rachel, and Azutiz has his sights set on their every move.
Since the clannet is not a military force as such, they try to stay out of battles; nevertheless, they are forced to defend themselves as they attempt to effect a lasting treaty. Can they bring the leaders together and successfully bring peace, allowing Sutar to finally heal?
Book 1 of the Coalition Trilogy.
By day they are your average collection of handicapped people, but when an emergency arises, the Justice Coalition can call upon divine powers to save people in need, or to save themselves. Aided by a handful of able-bodied friends, they fight not only for truth, justice, and the American way, but to rescue the lives and souls of all mankind in need.
One day they meet Mr. Matthew Drake, a private detective with Lane Stone Agency. He calls on the Coalition to not only save people's lives, but to help him investigate the embezzling or fraud practices of one Richard Banner, head of Banner, Incorporated. What they don't realize is, the case also involves betrayal and murder, especially from Banner's own daughter, Jenny.
Pierce Rosendahl, who is confined to a wheelchair, leads the group. The Justice Coalition is willing to risk their very lives, if need be, to fulfill their goals and save the day.
Book 2 of the Coalition Trilogy.
Four months have passed, and the Justice Coalition is still going strong, now with powerful police backing. Wesley and Diane Dixon are finally getting the marital counseling they need to reconcile their difference, while as a detective Wesley and his new partner, Jeremiah Silvers, begin to investigate brutal rapes and murders in Concert Park.
Meanwhile, Lilian Talbert had moved to Rapid City because her family did not understand her handicap, and therefore tried to control her life. Lilian has recurring nightmares about the fateful day when a fire disabled her, but even her cousin Glenda can't seem to help her.
Melody Harrison, an honorary Coalition member, strikes out on her own to find whoever murdered her brother, not realizing what dangers may be lurking in the shadows. It’s a story of reconciliation, acceptance, and resolution which pits each one against themselves.
Let Not Man Put Asunder is now available for purchase at , and at Smashwords.com. The price is $14.95 for the print version, and $2.99 for the e-book version, well worth it.
Escalating attacks against the Justice Coalition cause them to consider either police protection around the clock, or a self- imposed week-long vacation to Lake Ryan National Park. They choose the vacation, hoping police detectives can resolve the problem before they return.
However, on their first night, they feel they’re being watched. They find a hiker who was beaten, stabbed, and thrown off a cliff. Even their tour of Quartz- stone Caverns hints that not everything is as it appears. It’s only when Lilian is shot at while waterskiing that the Coalition begins to think maybe their troubles have followed them.
Thus, their vacation turns into an investigation, and they discover the very man who was behind their woes in Rapid City has a secret at Lake Ryan. Working with park rangers, they risk more danger as they learn what’s really going on.
