#WeWriWa: Time to call home in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week! I’ll be sharing another (unedited) snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN. But first, I wanted to let you know that I’ve decided to make this a series. Yuang and Simons will for sure get their own story in the series MARS SQUADRON 17. I’m not sure about the others yet, but I have the first three stories planned out. Hopefully I can finish this one soon.

Set-up: After their kiss, Hannah pushes Colin away, realizing that not only is the rest of the squadron watching, but so is a nurse. They both get into trouble for trying to walk on their own, but Hannah ends up video chatting with her father, which was her original purpose for getting out of her bed. This is in Colin’s POV and the first line of dialogue is Hannah.


“What do you mean Peter’s married? He promised he’d wait for me; I waited for him.”

He couldn’t help but cringe at her words, the hurt in her voice. Though, a part of him rejoiced, thankful for her boyfriend’s deceit. Now, no one stood in his way. Wheeling a little closer, Colin strained to catch the response of the person on-screen.

“…has two kids with Shandra. They all came to your mother’s funeral.”

With a sharp gasp, Hannah gripped the arms of her chair, her knuckles turning white. “What do you mean, Mom’s funeral?”

ALWAYS HER WINGMAN blurb…

Staff Sergeant Hannah Coriveau dedicated the last five years to the Space Military Command. Heading back to Earth, she’s ready to begin civilian life and reunite with her parents and the boyfriend she left behind. The person she’ll miss most is Garish—her wingman, best friend, and the one who made her regret not being single.

Senior Airman Colin Garish wants his squadron leader. Bad. After spending so much time by her side—both in the Martian skies and on the red planet—being her friend isn’t enough. When Hannah learns of her boyfriend’s infidelity, Colin is there to comfort her.

Before Colin has the chance to confess his feelings, Hannah receives worse news from home. Her father is dying. Seeing her devastation, Colin remains the friend she desperately needs. But in her grief, she pushes him away. Will Hannah let him back in her life when they land on Earth? Or will Colin never get the chance to win her heart?

#WeWriWa: Will they kiss in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN? #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week! Here’s another (unedited) snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN.

Set-up: After their unwise decision to race to the door, Colin pulled Hannah down on top of him. While she still has a boyfriend, this is what happens…


She gazed into his eyes, only there was nothing peaceful about them. They lit up with blue flames, igniting her too long dormant desires.

Her heart thumped against her rib cage. She couldn’t move, didn’t know if she wanted to. Every nerve ending tingled, those in contact with him on fire.

He lifted his head up, and she sank deeper into his heated gaze. His lips brushed against hers, sweeping across the open wound, lingering until he kissed her. Slow, sweet, and oh so magical. Her skin sizzled from his touch.

Wrapping his hands under her thighs, he pulled her closer.

#WeWriWa: Plummeting to the ground in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week! Here’s another (unedited) snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN.

Set-up: Hannah has challenged Colin to a race to the door. Remember, they haven’t experienced full gravity for five years, and still have to go through physical therapy on the moon base before they can return to Earth. Here is how the race goes…


He fell backward, his eyes widening and jaw dropping open as he plummeted closer and closer to the ground.

She didn’t realize he’d grabbed her hips until she tumbled toward him with no chance to stop herself. She crashed onto his chest, the air forced from her lungs. Her chin smacked the top of his rib cage, snapping her jaw and making her eyes water. Sucking in air, she tasted blood.

“Shit, Sergeant, are you all right?”

She licked her lip, finding the source of the blood. “I think so, just bit my lip. You?”

“Um…, he groaned, shifting underneath her.

#WeWriWa: Learning to walk again in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who left comments and corrections last week! Since I’m sharing unedited snippets, you get to see the mistakes my editor catches. Here’s another snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN.

Set-up: Hannah and her squadron arrived on the moon, had tests done, and went to sleep. Now she’s awake and ready to get out of bed. Unfortunately, her muscles aren’t ready and Colin notices. This snippet leads to another I’m excited to share next week. There is an objectionable word in this snippet, and the first line belongs to Colin.


“You look like a toddler learning to walk.”

Hannah rolled her eyes, sure she couldn’t be that bad. “Thanks, I appreciate the support.”

“We’re back to Earth gravity here, Sergeant. It’s okay to admit your muscles aren’t what they used to be. You’re getting old you know.”

“Fuck off, Garish. I’m not even a month older than you. Let’s see you try to walk to the door. I’ll race you.”
