Yes, I've been out playing tourist again. I even found a way to get the frames out of it. Heh heh.

 

 

Native fauna at the starport for Nar Shaada. I'd hate the feeding costs on this beastie.

 

 

Considered a high tech but corrupted world. Dangerous. But very colorful.

 

 

We'd seen these Dr Who Tardis look alike boxes in previous worlds, but only here did we realize what they were - bathrooms!  They even had a line with an impatient person or two.  Whoever got to build this place had a ton of fun as you will see in the next few shots. NPC's for the win!

 

 

Someone who partied too hard is throwing up in the square fountain.

 

 

This is one BIG statue for an already BIG Hutt!

 

 

Girls bathing in the fountain being fawned over by the guys. lol. 

 

 

I loved, loved, loved the virtual trees.

 

 

City scape during taxi travel.

 

 

 

One big mean robot!

 

 

Love some of the awesome detail. Lovely carpets!

 

 

Neon bling everywhere!

 

 

 

 

Cool statue at the starport of Tatooine.

 

 

Tatooine is just gorgeous! 

 

 

We got our personal vehicles here. Couldn't ask for a better venue to drive the things!

 

 

 

 

Me, my companion, and hubby. :P

 

 

 

Those awesome Tatooine horizons!

 

 

 

Holocron spotting! No idea how to get at it. Wahhh! X  -641, Y -15 Z 437

 

 

 

 

This was a datacron. There's another on the roof. Found out you have to get on a balloon way on the other end of the dessert. Takes about 40 minutes to get here. I still missed the second jump. Disappointed when I found it wasn't a holocron but some kind of jewel collection? Oh well! X -2387 Y -1380 Z386

 

 

 

This is on the Imperial side. A couple of more pics of Hutta before I left the newbie world with my spy.

 

 

Climbed way up a mountain side and the vegetation was so lush, I had to take a pic. Heh.

 

 

Inside the Imperial Fleet.

 

 

Imperial Starport at Dromund Kaas.

 

 

An utterly lush and dark place. Caught the lightning in the back.

 

 

Weird glowing plant pods. They also excrete a glowing pollen.

 

 

Looking down from one of the cliff sides. Gorgeous!

 

Yes, couldn't resist. I'm sure there'll be more pics. lol.

Novels


JEWEL OF THE GODS

(2015) Fantasy

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!


Excerpt:
"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."





INNER DEMONS

(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!


Excerpt:
The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."



THE PRICE OF MERCY

(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Excerpt:

Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.




CROSS-EYED DRAGON TROUBLES
(2007) Young Adult – Fantasy
“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”

Excerpt:

“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.



WILLING SACRIFICE
(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”

Excerpt:

Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”



IN THE SERVICE OF SAMURAI
(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”

Excerpt:

Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.



VASSAL OF EL
(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”

Excerpt:

Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
