Her first novel The Splinter in the Sky (2023) is an intensely imagined Space Opera set in the aftermath of a failed war of interstellar conquest; following the killing of her lover and abduction of her sibling, the lowly but resourceful protagonist enters the political arena with plans for revenge and liberation.
