Hello everyone. I'm Colby Hodge and I write what I like to call Futuristic Action Romance. Which means I have a great balance of action and romance in the future. I guess that was self explanatory. The first book in my exciting Star series was released last April and was a Pearl Finalist this year.

So what happens when a convicted criminal suddenly develops telepathic abilities when he meets a princess traveling incognito on a star ship that's under attack? Can Shaun and Lilly defeat the power hungry Circe and save Lilly's beloved home planet?

Guess you'll have to read to find out.

Thanks for inviting me here Rowena. Looks like this will be a great place to hang out.

Eppie Finalist FORCED MATE

Aliens and Fantasy Knights in shining armour

The May-and-June issue of the Rowena Cherry newsletter is coming together. One of the regular features is my Interview with a cover model, and my next interviewee is David Deslandes, who is Canadian... not much of a claim to alien status... and a Knight in shining armour at Toronto's Medieval Times.

I've been invited to speak briefly about CHARACTERIZATION WHEN YOUR HERO IS NON-HUMAN as part of Linnea Sinclair's SFR and Fantasy panel at the Romantic Times BOOKclub convention in Daytona. I'm honored and excited. Since I'm also appearing there as a misfit faery, I suppose it ties in well to mix Fantasy and Science Fiction.

Best wishes,
Rowena Cherry
