I released a new short story on Amazon today. Taylor’s Watch has been described as “Die Hard” on a space station. You can find a complete description here.
The story developed as part of my upcoming novel, On the Far Bank of the Rubicon. That book tells the story of the first Pax War, but at the very moment the war starts all my main characters are busy elsewhere. I started telling Taylor’s story to fill in the gap and then realized it would work better as a stand alone piece of military heroism rather than as a chapter in the book. The story you just read is the result. That said, if you want to know more about what happens to Taylor, she will still have a small but significant role to play in the novel, and yes, I promise it will tell you who picked her up after she completed her mission. Look for that soon.
So now you know, war is coming for Jack and Anna, along with the whole rest of the Pax Imperium. Things are about to get messy for the Pax.
