I couldn’t believe it when I reached the seventh novella in my Scifi Romance series, The Department of Homeworld Security. These stories are just so much fun to write!
For Duel Citizenship, I wanted to explore another favorite Scifi trope of mine—Little Green Men (and Women). I had so much fun coming up with the Vegans and the entire miscommunication that resulted in their arrival. More than any other alien in this series, the Vegans are making a big difference for Earth!
I have so many exciting plans for these green guys and gals. They also have one of the most well-developed backstories of any aliens I’ve developed. I can’t wait for it to unfold as this universe expands!
Living in a treehouse restaurant in Florida, Sarah expects to encounter plenty of wildlife. But the huge lizards who suddenly show up in her tree aren’t the health conscious clientele she was hoping to attract when she expanded her menu to be vegan-friendly. She also didn’t expect one of the lizards to seem determined to kill her.
Disguised as a tourist, the Sadirian soldier Ari is investigating strange readings coming from a huge oak tree in Florida—a tree with an Earthling living in it. The Department of Homeworld Security has sent him to find out if something extraterrestrial is going on, and with the Coalition looking to bring Earth into the fold before humanity is ready, he doesn’t have much time to sort things out.
When Sarah is pulled into an alien duel, he discovers that more than Earth’s fate hangs in the balance. Can they navigate their nascent connection as they forge a new bond with a species that could save—or destroy—them all?
