The Slave Planet
Seven Steps
May 2nd

Love is the ultimate crime.

Empress Nadira, a beautiful, strong willed young woman on the planet Venus, has fallen desperately into forbidden love with her slave, Kiln. But when Nadira joins the highest council in the land, her secret is revealed. On a planet where women rule and men obey, she will stop at nothing to rescue Kiln before he faces the ultimate punishment, death.

Embittered by her mother's execution, Czarina Arees will do anything to become the Leader of High Council, and nothing, not even the new upstart councilwoman Nadira, will stop her. When Nadira refuses to vote in Arees favor, there will be only one option left, murder. 

Empress Eva thinks she has it all: wealth, power and a mother who adores her. That is, until she meets Lex. When she takes him in as her slave, her world is turned upside down. His red hair and crimson eyes intrigue her. His touch sets her on fire. When the beautiful alien captures her heart, she is forced to make a life changing choice: pursue a political career and stay in her mother's love, or give it all up for the love of her slave?

The Slave Planet is a science fiction, interracial (black woman white man) romance filled with suspense and and heroism. It deals with the issues of women, race, politics and classism. It is a thrilling journey into an alternate history when women rule the world.

"Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me."
--William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. One of my mentors (you know who you are) often reminds me of my first foray into the world of literary fiction. It was a lively story about a bee's journey to find a pot of missing honey. He says that I have improved since then. I think that he's right.

I am a working wife and mother, as well as a devoted owner of a beautiful cat named Rosie. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, thrifting, and anything that reminds me of my childhood.

But when a group of cult extremists, headed by a guy who calls himself Priest, decides to target his family’s casino as a den of sin while attempting to recruit for their cause, Carlo may be in for a challenge he has never been trained for.

Anya was born inside the walls of a cult and has never known anything different. Anya’s beauty has always stirred the wrong kind of attention from the leader and then, when he was gone, his son. Anya has had a complicated and volatile relationship with Priest since she was a little girl toddling around in the religious commune. She knows she deserves better but has no idea how to go about getting it.

Can Carlo and Anya overcome their upbringing and find love?
