#WeWriWa: Drugged and locked away in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #sfr

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

I’ve been sharing snippets from JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. I have a couple more snippets to share before I move on to a new story.

Set-up: Last week Katrina went to shake a Terran’s hand, but ended up on her knees, unable to move. Now that her head has cleared up, let’s find out where she is… (edited from original to fit)


Katrina shivered as she slowly opened her eyes, her head pounding, and goose bumps all over her skin, even on her scalp, making the pain even more excruciating. She moved her leg, her knee brushing across a rough surface. No clothing in between. Her heart hammered as her memories became clear and her awareness grew.

That woman had drugged her, stripped her of her clothes, and shut her away in what felt like a freezer. Katrina stretched her arm above her head, her knuckles scraping against a metal bar. A cage, one too small for her to lie comfortably in.

Examining the area beyond her tiny prison, she spotted many motionless figures standing around her, oddly human looking, though there was something else familiar about them. If only she had more light, she might be able to get a better look. Then one of them drew closer, peering through the bars.


JAGER: Galactic Defenders Book Two

Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.

Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.

But when a new enemy threatens both their lives, they must work together to survive.

#WeWriWa: Unexpected meeting with a Terran in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #sfr

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

I’ve been sharing snippets from JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. I posted last weekend, but forgot to sign up. If you want to read that post, you can find it here.

Set-up: Last week Katrina was busy killing Erebus on her own. She was doing quite well until she met a Terran woman who wanted to shake her hand for killing the Erebus…


Katrina wiped her hand on her pants then reached out to take the woman’s hand. “Just doing my job, ma’am.” She went to let go, but the woman’s grip was stronger than she expected.

The woman yanked Katrina forward and jammed something sharp into her neck. The piercing pain was the last thing Katrina felt before her ears started to ring. Her eyes lost focus, and her head spun. The ringing grew louder, so high pitched she slammed her hands over her ears. “What did you do to me?” she screamed.

Vision blurred, she put her hands out and dropped to her knees before she fell down. Through the fog, she could barely make out the woman’s outline. “What did you do?”

#8Sunday: She’s fighting the Erebus on her own in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #sfr

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. The first book in the series is on sale. Details below.

Set-up: Last week Jager spotted Katrina on Earth and informed Bryce but went incommunicado. Now, let’s catch up with Katrina who is hunting down Erebus in her old neighborhood…


With a roar, an Erebus burst into the open from behind one of the containers. It lumbered toward her, red, glaring eyes focused on her. She returned its stare, muscles tense and ready to react. Before the creature reached her, she charged, holding up her blade, striking it right through the twisted vines covering its trunk. It fell back, taking her down with it and bounced when it hit the ground. Katrina pushed off the creature so not to get further tangled in its limbs. This one had thicker and fewer limbs than any Erebus she’d fought before, but she didn’t have time to contemplate the difference. Another struck, knocking her to the ground with one of huge limbs. How had it snuck up on her? She jumped to her feet, looking for an opening to jab the Erebus.

#8Sunday: Loose on a planet she knew better than him in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #sfr

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, released on Monday. The first book in the series is on sale. Details below.

Set-up: Last week Jager received a plea from Bryce to help him find his daughter, as Katrina did not show up on Hemera as she was supposed to. Well, the shuttles of Delta, Echo, and Zulu squads have landed on Terra (Earth), and Jager has left his squad with Jace while he goes off to search for Katrina.


One hundred steps away, a slim figure resembling the princess ducked behind a building. He raced after her, but by the time he reached the spot he’d seen her, she’d vanished, leaving only her blue Defender uniform tucked behind a refuse can. Cosmos, he’d lost her; she was loose on a planet she knew far better than him.

Jager activated his wrist com unit. “Bryce, I caught sight of her,” he recorded. “She stowed away on Echo’s shuttle. She’s on Terra now, but she’s evading capture. I will find her.” After pressing send, he turned off the unit, not wanting to hear the retired Defender’s response. Until Jager had better news for him, he would stay incommunicado.
