Okay, while I was evaluating my next scene of my next book, a thought came to me. The cat in my previous books should have a story of his own. So this morning, I wrote three chapters about how Frederick the cat was rescued by my MC in the first book. I'll put this prequel up for free on my webpage as soon as I'm done with it. Then I may go on and add all the adventures this cat took throughout my stories from his POV into a novella for next year. Now back to my regularly scheduled book writing.

Many times I have noticed at book events, someone will ask me what I write. As soon as they find out I write fiction, especially science fiction, they completely become turned off because they are looking for non-fictional stories. I can respect that. I like some movies because they are based on actual happenings. And that's the key. My books are based on non-fiction elements such as factual backgrounds, actual events, and the very words people have said. So do I tell them I use a lot of non-fiction in my fiction? Research is just as important to fictional writers. Granted I've never been to Mars, but a lady did die lying on top of her masseuse table. Names and sometimes genders have been changed to protect the guilty in my real/not so real stories.
Writing fiction is a lot harder to make the story sound authentic. It's even more difficult to take a slice of non-fiction and fictionalize it.
My stories are engaging, fast paced, and thought provoking with descriptive characters. You'll never read another one like it.
Here's an excerpt as two humans are forced to explore the Martian desert for two fugitives. The androids realize they have to obey their law to save people:
“Hello, Ramon,” D.E.E. said.
Ramon responded, “Hello, D.E.E. 4785. Are you functioning well?”
“Then return to sleep mode,” he requested.
“Should we keep humans safe if they are in danger?”
“Yes, that is our code. Why do you ask?”
“Humans I know are in danger. We should help them.”
“We haven’t received that assignment,” Ramon said.
“Would we be harming them if we did not help them?”
“Yes. Our first robotic law says not to injure a human through inaction. Who is in danger?”
“My manager, Simon and the granddaughter, Lynn,” D.E.E. replied.
“Where are they?”
“My recording is limited. Simon said he was going to Knobel Crater. Can we find them?”
“I should not leave. I must have instructions.”
“Humans do not need us when they are in sleep mode. We are bound by our law.”
Both androids arrived at the underground tunnel entrance. Through the glass door, they saw Alex and Mike preparing to board an external rover.
Ramon addressed the guard, “We have information about Simon Heathrow.”
The guard noted their presence and let them enter the tunnel to approach the two men. Alex turned and saw the two androids standing near the rover.
Removing his helmet, Alex asked, “Ramon, what are you doing here?”
“We have come to help find the humans, Simon and Lynn,” Ramon said.
“That’s good of you, but we will locate them and bring them back,” Mike said through the speaker in his helmet.
“We must help. Simon has a weapon."©A. Nation2017

What am I writing on now? First I'm finishing up my latest edit of Fatal Error and that should be good by this weekend. I'm currently continuing on the scifi Domino series that jumps ten years into the future when all the children become teenagers. They are heading for the alien planet Arret to work and find out where their mysterious map will take them. Someone already has prevented one of the boys from joining his friends, rooms have been trashed and now a dead alien has been found on board their ship. What's this? A fire has broke out on board the ship. Everyone has to evacuate into the safety shuttles with two more months before they are to land in Arret.
Do you want the ship to blow up or limp into port?
This is the Six Saga in my space opera. If you want this book, I highly recommend you get the previous two books, Similar But Not the Same and Found The Lost ones. This story of space adventures continues the tale of the aliens and humans 300 years from now.
The two humans and their daughter are heading back home to Mars in the alien ship. They have to endure stops along the way at the alien base station. Problems occur when the ex-ruler hijacks one of the alien's ship and kidnaps his obsession.

~A shadow moved by the bedroom window catching Ralph’s attention. Alex had left the window ajar and forgot to lock it shut. Two eyes saw the snarling dog through the window pane as he passed on. Ralph was determined. He nudged his nose under the window frame moving it up an inch.
Jan could feel her heart pounding so hard, she thought it might jump on out. “Calm down, take a deep breath,” she told herself.
One of the porch floor boards creaked, where Alex had it repaired, as the man edged closer to the front door.
Ralph, struggling as hard as he could at the raised window frame, managed to get his head clear over the sill. His barking and drooling motivated him on to see where that man went.
“Jan, Jan Sterling, I just want to talk to you,” the man called out, standing to the side of the doorway. He didn’t believe this job would be a problem, but better to be safe than sorry.
“Come on Jan, I know you are in there,” he enticed.
“Who are you? What do you want?” Jan yelled back.
“I’m just a friend of Rosorio, he wants to see you. I won’t hurt you.”
“Go away, I’ve got a gun!” Jan threatened.
This will be harder to accomplish, he thought. Since the dog he saw through the window appeared to be contained, the man tried again.
“You don’t want to hurt me. I’m just the messenger,” the stranger shouted back pulling out his long range phaser emitter from his holster inside his jacket. These types of illegal firearms disrupted the victim’s nervous system.
Ralph, now panting hard, had twisted and squirmed around until he was upside down halfway through the window. Surprising himself when his front paws pushed the glass frame up releasing his energy as he tumbled out of the window.
The man decided at that moment to slam his foot at the wooden door breaking it open. The front door swung with such force it crashed against the inside wall.
Jan raised her weapon as the shadow of the man stood there raising his hands.
“Look, I’ll put mine down if you will too, so we can talk,” he offered.
“I just want you to leave. Stay back or I’ll have to shoot!” Jan ordered watching the man take another step toward her.
“No you wouldn’t shoot an unarmed man,” he stated putting his gun on the table nearby and taking another step closer.
Jan started pulling on the trigger trying to aim for his legs but the gun had a hard squeeze. She thought for a second it wasn’t going to fire until an explosion cracked through the air from the gun sending the missile into the man’s right leg and out again into the wall board. Before she had a chance to fire again the man decided to lunge at her. All of a sudden a large animal on jumped on his back, nipping at his neck and ears.©A.Nation2014
