Invasive Species

This was a story I just had to write in The Department of Homeworld Security universe. Invasive Species was originally more of a stand-alone, but I managed to work it into the rest of the storyline.

Early on in writing this series, I had this idea of a character who thinks he’s a normal Earthling, but discovers quite suddenly that he is very, very wrong about that. I learned a lot about this group of sentients while writing Kyle and Tracey’s story, and had a ton of fun doing so!

Duel Citizenship

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!

Duration of Stay

The sixth novella in my Scifi Romance series, The Department of Homeworld Security was never supposed to happen, mainly because I had intended to kill off one of the main characters back in Tied up in Customs. I’m so glad that I didn’t!

Duration of Stay features Zemanni, the shapeshifting assassin who got himself into serious trouble in Entry Visa, and an overzealously helpful Earthling named Brooke.

I love showcasing aspects of our existence that are much more awesome than we think. Celebrating the little things in life is important to me. Duration of Stay ended up incorporating that by showing how big of an impact something like coffee, video games, and… “affectionate moments” can have on a sentient who’s never experienced those things before.

This was another favorite of mine, and Zemanni is still popping up in this universe.

An alien assassin could get used to life on Earth…
