Some Assembly Required, book one 
An alien pilot. A chocolate cake. A doomed relationship or two.
Jane’s life as an elementary school librarian gets sidetracked when she digs up the AI pilot of a 140-million-year-old spacecraft. Now, she’s running all over the world looking for spaceship parts, falling in and out of love, and trying to keep her friends from thinking she’s crazy. To make matters worse, the ship she’s recovering is starting to sound a bit more like the Death Star than the Millennium Falcon. When did life get so complicated? 
Dark Side of the Moon, book two 
Fully stocked spaceship garage – check. Fully prepped spaceship – check. Fully trained…and ready to pilot? Jane’s got her own spaceship, but she has no idea how to even get it out of the garage, let alone fly it. No worries, everything’s under control – meet Olive, Jane’s new pilot! 
Jane finds some very interesting things in the basement left behind when Kit went away. Among them is a fully operational space ship. After an almost shattering start, Jane and her friends are globetrotting again, with the addition of Olive to pilot the ship – and make pancakes. Olive isn’t a real person, but she’s working hard at becoming one – and learning how to make pancakes and waffles along the way. But will pancakes be enough to deal with Jane’s mom and whatever lies on the dark side of the moon?

It seems like I've been writing forever in some way, shape or form. However, most of my real experience comes from role playing in World of Warcraft. That may seem a strange place to learn how to write, but that isn't the case at all. Visualize having to always know what to say, instantly, and be in character saying it. Now visualize doing this for 1-4 hours a day for months and years. What it does is eliminate the need to think when writing. You instinctively know how this character will react since you've been trained over hundreds and hundreds of hours of spontaneous improvisation. I always know what she's going to say, since she is me. I am her. After all, we all know what we're going to say, or we find out immediately after having said it. Sometimes to our chagrin. And I've found that this carries over into writing on digital paper. Or at least it appears to. I suppose my readers will decide if it's a fun read, or a boring load of tripe. But let me know either way. :-) And to make that easier, email me at or look me up on FaceBook at And if you've read Jane and just want to spread some of that love please please PLEASE leave me a review on Amazon. Amazon values your opinion more than even your dog does. I'm a brand new author, just have the three Jane books, a lonely Lacey & Alex book, plus the Pirates stories. Help me get started, okay?
