Entry updated 14 November 2022. Tagged: Author.
(1951-2016) US accountant and author, usually of historical romances, whose Blood sequence beginning with True Blood (2006) involves its Space Opera cast – an empathic investigator and a ruthless field agent – in interstellar romantic entanglements. Two singletons are also of sf interest: The Alliance (2000), involving a reluctant romance between the Alien governor of the planet Pyrali and his human consort, a descendant of crash-landed migrants; and Whispers in the Stars (2002), in which the initial dominant figure is the empress of the planet Nubria, whose Psi Powers are a mixed blessing.
