On a planet where Humans are slaves, Odymn is free. Her companion, the Slain, was once a trader in sentient beings. Now, for love of Odymn, he has agreed to change his ways and to return his former captives to their homes. Together, he and Odymn travel the urban alleyways and wilderness woodlands of the Southern District of Prell-nan, risking everything. They must battle wild life, outsmart power-hungry Dock-winders and dodge the grasp of ruthless Gel-heads. But in spite of good intentions, will the Slain be able to right the wrongs of the past? Or will the consequences of his actions outweigh the good he and Odymn want to do?

In the second of the Meniscus series, South from Sintha tells the continuing story of Odymn and the Slain. Odymn loves her silent companion, but trying to help his former captives may be a challenge she did not anticipate.

You can try to mend the broken, to right the wrongs of the past, but sometimes you can`t go back.

I hope you enjoy this new book!

This is Di-natha, a red gas giant. No life forms on this one! Di-natha is the Gel-speak word for ‘red’.

Planet Meniscus

Welcome to planet Meniscus.

A planet with:

  • two phased moons
  • two suns
  • seasons
  • dynamic landscapes (desert, forest)

~

Water on Meniscus moves upward, not down, effervescing and foaming like soda in a shaken bottle.

The odd behavior of water on the planet results in dramatic water features:

  • water churns – lake-like but filled with frothing writhing water
  •  water-climbs – like waterfalls but the water movement is upward

As I have published my work, I have realised – some of my writing and illustrations do not belong on earth. They should be out there, available to those of you who share my love of space travel and encounters with new worlds. This blog will help me reach out to you and share my ‘off planet’ work!
