Hello! A big thanks to Jennifer for featuring me on her site again. I appreciate it! 

ONLY GOOD ENEMIES, book #2 in my Galactic Bonds science-fiction fantasy romance series, came out last week. Woot!

Sometimes in my books, I will reference things from my real life, and these things often end up being some of my favorite lines/moments. For example, in ONLY GOOD ENEMIES, my heroine Vesper Quill says this about pets/animals:

Corgi puppies and boodle kitties have always been my favorites.”

“Boodle kitties” is something I added to the book to hopefully make readers smile or laugh for a moment. It’s an Easter egg reference to Kitty Boodle, the cat who belongs to my mom. 

Boodle is a spoiled diva princess. If she was in my Galactic Bonds world, she would immediately take control of any spaceship, sneak around and spy on everyone, and then make everyone pet her and give her all the treats she wanted.

My mom says that I need to start giving Boodle royalties for appearing in my newsletter. My mom has even started texting me pictures of Boodle with the message “More royalties”. pastedGraphic.png

I also mentioned corgis because I had corgi mix named Lucky when I was a kid. Lucky was the best dog ever. We had him for about nineteen years, and I’ve loved corgis ever since. 

Someday, I hope to write versions of Boodle and Lucky into one of my books. Maybe Vesper and Kyrion need some pets to take along on their galactic adventures. 😉 

Hope everyone’s pets are doing well. Happy reading!

Book cover of Only Good Enemies by Jennifer EstepA WOMAN ON A MISSION . . .

My name is Vesper Quill. I used to be a lowly lab rat, toiling away in obscurity developing brewmakers and other household appliances. But thanks to my seer magic and my own ingenuity, I’m now a Regal lady and the head of a successful corporation.

My mission? To destroy the Techwave, the dangerous group that has stolen my designs and plans to weaponize them against the Imperium. But when my mission takes an unexpected turn, I’m once again surrounded by enemies and fighting for my life.

Further complicating matters is Kyrion Caldaren, an arrogant Regal lord whose fate is bound to mine. Kyrion doesn’t realize the two of us still have an unwanted connection that puts us both in grave danger . . . or does he?


My name is Kyrion Caldaren. As the leader of the Arrows, the Imperium’s elite fighting force, I’ve been tasked with tracking down and destroying the Techwave before they seize control of the Archipelago Galaxy.

My other mission? Find a way to assassinate Lord Callus Holloway, the Imperium ruler who wants to take my psion power for his own. Holloway is also a threat to Vesper Quill, who haunts my thoughts, despite the broken bond and distance between us.

When I realize Vesper is in danger, my priorities change, and I vow to use all my telepathic, telekinetic, and other abilities to help her. I will save Vesper from her enemies and mine—even if I have to burn down the whole bloody galaxy.
