Become Part of the Story

Through my newsletter, Messages from the Oort Cloud readers gain a direct connection with me and my work, as well as to other writers. Messages is a monthly compendium of science news, writer-life insights, book finds (including freebies and promotions) and excerpts from works in progress.
I’m also assembling a crew of doughty word warriors for the awesome task of reviewing upcoming works. You’ll gain pre-publication access to new stories and have your voice heard early across your favorite book sites. Your opinion counts!


All you need is a current email address. Your privacy is important: check spam or promotions folders for a confirmation email.

Messages premiered on Valentine’s Day, 2021. Snag your “limited-edition” copy here for a sneak peek at a new Water Dragon series.

A golden comet blazes through a gap in the clouds, over a city at the edge of a sea, with blocky buildings and walkways, while people scurry for cover from the awesome sight.
