When a lifelong trekkie grows up to become a writer, what does she do? She creates an off-beat space opera about a demonic alien entity who requires a host so he can have sentience. This series admittedly and unapologetically reflects aspects of what I loved about Star Trek, Firefly, and every other series involving space travel and aliens.
The premise of the Forced To Serve series is that every creature ever born is forced to serve someone in one way or another in their lives. In the middle of the action and adventure of rescuing people, it is most common for my characters to have deep epiphanies about themselves leading to risky changes. I admit both the quirky humor and the plots indulge my darker and more wicked side.
This series is science fiction with some romantic elements in its complicated alien relationships. It has also been a chance for me to create tough female warriors and to write fight scenes, which have been both a challenge and great creative fun.
