It’s the cooking contest of a lifetime. I just need to avoid falling for a hot alien chef.
To raise credits for the local creature shelter, I enter Interstellar Chef. If I win? I’m awarded the catering job of a lifetime and prize money I can donate to the shelter. It won’t be easy—contestants must prepare exquisite meals in dangerous alien locations, and fellow chefs have been known to attack the others. Some competitors don’t make it home alive.
All I have to do is avoid my stiffest competition, Thrombuka Nargoth, the brutishly handsome, golden-skinned alien who once left me stranded without my undies in a secluded hallway of a dive bar on Quazar 3.
Fraternization among the competitors is strictly forbidden, but the more I try to avoid Throm, the more I can’t resist him. Soon we’re stealing kisses away from the prying eyes of the camera bots. If we’re caught, we’ll get thrown off the show.
Fate has other plans, however, and soon, I don’t know what I’m fighting for most—the prize money for the shelter or a future with Throm.
Catering to the Alien is book three in the Beastly Alien Boss series. Each features an Earth woman hired for an off-world job who meets a gruff alien who can’t resist falling for his fated mate.
Includes a Catering to the Alien bonus scene.

Harnessing a childhood steeped in storytelling and a deep love of the written word, with over 600 titles (and growing) under my belt, I always strive to bring a wide range of characters to vibrant, compelling life, allowing for total immersion in the story. I want you to feel the real world melt away as you engage with my work, whatever the genre, whether it's on the lighter side (cozy mysteries, LitRPG, comedic paranormal romance) or the darker desires (reverse harem, steamy dystopia, sci-fi thrillers) and everything in between. Currently on the rosters of multiple major publishers like Podium, Tantor and ACX, I’ve worked with authors around the world. I’m proficient in a variety of accents, am a member of SAG/AFTRA, have won multiple independent awards, including the IAA for Horror 2019, and am constantly working to expand my repertoire across the spectrum of incredible works available. I’ve studied with some of the best in the industry, including Paul Meier and Pat Fraley, and am always studying new techniques to enhance my performance. I’m proficient in a wide range of accents and dialects, including UK, French, German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Eastern/Southern US. Working from my home studio, using top-of-the-line equipment, I always provide crisp, clear audio with editing and proofing to ensure a distraction free listening experience.

With well over a hundred titles under his belt spanning genres from STEM and Biography to Eco-Thriller Heists and Alien Romance, Patrick’s insatiable curiosity, fascination with the human condition and facility with dialects have provided a fantastic fit for him in the audiobook industry. Patrick holds a BFA in Theatre from Emerson College and an MFA in Dramatic Arts from the University of San Diego. In addition to Audiobook Narration he has worked professionally in Theatre, Film and Television for over 20 years and was both thrilled and honored to pick up his first SOVAS award in 2021 for the full cast recording of T.J. London’s _The Traitor_. You may also recognize him from his recurring character, hot-head Joey Novak, on _General Hospital_. Shooting and recording schedule permitting, he indulges a handful of dubiously accurate titles, including amateur Brew Guru, Marathon Runner and Irish Folk Musician.
