y separately published work icon The Zookeeper's Tales of Interstellar Oddities Darra : Computing Advantages & Training , 2020 18660017 2020 selected work short story science fiction

'The galaxy is a strange place full of weird creatures and even weirder sentient beings.

'See it through the eyes of four outcasts, banished to Asteri Station on the fringes of the Hegemon Economic Alliance. Absinthe Krull, the Aquanorian with a dark past—who runs The Zoo, the bar on the Asteri. Ori Bligh, a young Terran whose life of privilege has been destroyed by a stupid mistake she’s desperate to put right. Zev Smith, maintenance master for the station, in hiding for forty years for a poor decision; and Cordelia Bane, bounty hunter with a stack of debts to clear.

'When first Ori then Cordelia arrive on Asteri, the stories they hear at the Zoo slowly reveal not only the oddities all four have encountered in their travels, but also things all four would prefer left in the shadows of the past.

'And, in the end, will help them decide on a new future.

'Fourteen stories from all corners of the galaxy and covering five hundred years of history. If you love science fiction, weird west, humour, and darkness, then The Zookeeper’s Tales of Interstellar Oddities will keep you pinned to your seat.'

y separately published work icon Five Dragons Brisbane : Four Ink Press , 2019 18471553 2019 selected work short story fantasy

'An Amberwing mother's eggs are stolen. The Peace Accords held between human, dragon and merfolk races crumble. Aliens invade the planet and dragons start to go missing.

'Eridan is a planet in peril.

'This speculative-themed collection follows the stories of five dragon breeds. Amberwing, Hydraclaw, Soulslinger, Chronohide and Glamourwing. Each tale connects with the next; a tapestry telling that highlights lives lived against the canvas of a world at war.

'Here live dragons.

'All kinds.

'Welcome to Eridan.'
