I wrote a short story for the recent XPrize "Seat 14C (https://seat14c.com) competition. Although I didn't win, I think I came up with something special.

The p...remise was simple but intriguing: Create a first-person account of the passenger in Seat 14C, on ANA Flight #008, as this passenger discovers they’ve mysteriously been transported 20 years into the future. How has our world changed as a result of emerging technology and innovation, and how does your character interact with this changed world?

Readers of my Water Worlds series may find some similar themes running through the story. I hope you enjoy it.

Kind words from a beta reader:
"As always, enraptured by how perfectly the threads of the stories are woven in this series -- just beautifully told through some of the best young adult characterizations I have read. I never want this series to end."

Won't you give "Gen" a try?
https://www.amazon.com/Gen-Water-Worlds-Book…/…/stoursstudio

Gen was angry and she knew it. Angry about her overprotective parents, angry about the way she was teased about her height, and angry about the dirt and grime that infested every corner of Mars. But soon, she'd be on rotations. Too few went Outside on purpose anymore, just to shiver against the i...

I'm moving the Water Worlds series back to Amazon exclusively for a while. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) for ebooks and CreateSpace for print. Give book 1, Young Moon, a try, won't you? Read for free with Kindle Unlimited.

Thanks to all who sent such great energy during the launch of Gen. I've received some great comments from readers so far, so thanks!

Gen is a fast-paced "hard science" scifi adventure with strong women characters and takes place on a Mars so familiar you'd think you'd lived there all your life.

Please let your geek friends (12 and up) know about Gen and the whole Water Worlds series, and thanks for supporting independent authors!

Happy National Handwriting Day! With the snow upon us here in the Eastern US, and power likely to go down, now is a good time to brush up on your handwriting! And so I give you a new blog post, Meg’s treatise on “Cursive Writing” from "Gen."

http://waterworlds.me/…/23_Happy_National_Handwriting_Day!.…

Tish and Meg dropped in that Fiveday evening after rotations. Meg brought several pencils and a stack of her own paper, too, to give Tish and me our first lesson in cursive writing. I would have tubed over to their place again, gladly, but they both sensed I was uncomfortable around Raf. While I app…
