A BDSM Space OperaCenturies ago, theocratic governments subjugated the last resistance on Earth. Those unwilling to tolerate the religious bigotry, fled the planet seeking a new beginning among the stars.
Generations later, their descendants found a new home in a far away system.
But no matter how far humans travel, greed and the desire for control journey with them and now the specter of intolerance rises again.
The Lady Cassandra -- FemDom, slave owner, Dominatrix -- finds her lifestyle and her livelihood threatened by a fast-rising fanatical movement founded by a former client. Her alpha slave, Captain Varyl Malonds aka Spyder -- smuggler and superb pilot with incredible tactical skills -- risks his ship, his income, and even his life for his Lady.
Published January, 2015Spyder, captain of the spaceship Trouble, ignores threats from the owner of his cargo and the anger of his influential and overdue passenger to rescue the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra. The delay forces him to risk Trouble, his life and that of his crew when a notorious criminal chases the ship from one end of the system to another.
Releases October 5 in ebook; October 8 in printAboard a ship named Truth, Spyder carries the Lady Cassandra on her crusade to stop the Righteous Order of Piety Purists from enslaving the system in a sexless, joyless existence.

Ever felt out of place at a party someone dragged you to? When you arrived, ever wondered if the person you expected to meet was somewhere else and you showed up at the Wrong Party? That happens to Laura in my latest short story, now available for purchase.
Wrong Party: Fate has a sense of humor -- Brian sent her the incorrect address. But, after meeting Jack, Laura forgot all about her date for the evening.

, Book Two of The Lady & The Spyder
One by one the Righteous Order of Piety Purists takes over settled planets and colonies, enthralling governments to imprison their citizens in a sexless, joyless existence. Forced into exile, compelled to form a morally questionable affiliation with a crime lord, the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra struggles to protect her slaves and clients from the encroaching Pietist threat.
But liberating a devoted collaborator spirals into a violent confrontation. To protect her allies, Cassandra and her slave captain Spyder, take the Order's so-called representatives into custody. Although they claim piety and peace, the prisoners' heavily armed presence aboard Cassandra's spaceship Truth
, endangers both the crew and the ship.
Pursued by ships equipped with sophisticated tracking equipment and weaponry, Spyder must use his wits, his crew's talents, and everything he can demand of Truth
to keep them all alive. Because of the Pietist's disproportionate reaction, Lady Cassandra questions the Order's priorities and goals. She discovers the roots of the movement entangled with her own history and realizes the Pietists will sacrifice anything and anyone to destroy her.Spyder's Truth

Competing for attention in today's publishing environment is hard enough. But, when retailers prevent you from putting your books on the correct virtual shelf in the store, it becomes impossible.
Erotica ≠ romance and romance ≠ erotica. My BDSM space opera, Spyder's Trouble contains no hint of romance. And yet ...
Read about how yet another retailer works to prevent you from consuming erotica without the trappings of romance on my blog.
What's the one thing always said by neighbors when they arrest a mass murderer or serial killer? "They were so nice and quiet, I can't imagine they would do something like that."
Appearances can be deceiving. You can't tell a person is a rapist by looking at them. A top wearing lots of leather with a fancy flogger hanging from their belt may have never thrown it before. A bottom, begging to be beaten bloody, may have never suffered more than a torn fingernail. Someone who lies about their training and experience can cause the partner they play with permanent harm -- emotionally or physically.

Recently, I watched the deaths of two friends play out very differently because one was a cis woman and the other was trans.
I talk about the medical inequality that served one woman and destroyed another on my blog. (BTW, you can help the latter's family out at gofundme.)
