Current Story
Ancalagon -In Progress

Plants and animals were my thing. The intricacies of nature intrigued me and yet there was an elegant simplicity that I loved.

6888 Ardra. Heavy gravity planet. Human-compatible atmosphere. Generally temperate climate; I’d aimed for the southern continent which had milder weather and a good mix of terrain.

“Damn Sonez anyway.” He’d tried to keep me on his ship instead of letting me explore the planet with a team after the probe returned. Well I’d stopped his plotting before he could ruin my life.

And I’d show everyone just what Essell Deray could do.

Denied - Complete
I endured years of experiments at the hands of sadistic aliens. Barely eighteen, I've been rescued from the tiny cell and the years of enforced sensory deprivation. Lost, with no family or friends I can remember or would turn to if I could, I'm alone in the universe... except for the humans who saved me. The Captain. Zeke. Doc. A crew of misfit Rangers, a ragtag bunch operating just this side of legal--and often on the other side when circumstances are right--are not the kind to help someone “like me” recover. Captain wants to send me away, but I can't leave. No one else can touch me.

He's it for me, the strength I can't function without.

Mine! - Complete
Bonded werekin have paired souls—animal and human. Human werekin lack that animal soul, so they’re the public face when in reality they’re nothing more than the alpha’s voice to the humans to keep the secret of their kind. For ages this has protected the werekin from being exposed, but times have changed. Indentured servitude, slavery... even just a lack of choice in their lives hasn’t changed for the human werekin even after bonded werekin have taken advantage of online schooling and careers to improve their lives.

Deke let that schism drive off, Kraig, his best friend’s brother and the human werekin who he would’ve bucked the weight of history for, and then he believed his chance for happiness is lost forever. All that is left to him is his duty to protect his people. When the unexpected happens, it will take every ounce of his conviction and control as an alpha to save not only his streak, but the man his heart beats for. Continues in Part Two with Park's P.O.V.!!
