Galactic Alliance Series

Translight begins in the not so distant future and ends a few decades later. It tells the story of how humanity discovered the stardrive and nearly got itself wiped out because of it.

Chroniech picks up the action a few decades later after humanity has learned how to cooperate with the other species in the galaxy. A discovery in deep space sends the heavy cruiser Komodo Dragon off on a mission that will forever change the Alliance.

Honor Thy Enemy takes place in the aftermath of the Chroniech war. The Alliance thought the Chroniech problem had been resolved -- they had other plans. Using their advanced knowledge of transdimensional physics, the Chroniech return with a vengeance.

Peacekeeper is a story of Tom Wilks as he undergoes the transformation from man to cyborg to become a Peacekeeper. His close friendship with an alien takes an interesting twist that changes his life forever. This book ties together a lot of the loose ends that were generated in Translight while utilizing several important characters from Chroniech.

Peacekeeper 2 continues the story of Tom and Lashpa as they strive to form a deep relationship in the ancient tradition of gragrakch. The crew of a Chroniech warship left behind after the war discovers a weapon of immense power hidden in the planetoid on which they've built a base. The discovery threatens the lives of billions of Alliance citizens. To read an excerpt from the novel click here.
