Author has written 30 stories for Firefly, and StarTrek: Enterprise.

Prodigal Son has been updated for the first time in far too long. I'm sorry that it has taken so long for me to work out the problems I had with the story line. I've finally managed to tie what I've written so far to the ending I wanted. I didn't want to change the ending I had in mind, so that meant I had to work the middle out to keep it.

If you have lost interest or given up hope, I totally understand, and I apologize once more for the long gap. I hope, if you're still interested, that it's been worth the wait.

I do write other things, of course. Drop by my Wordpress blog (badkarma00 on Wordpress) to see. There's also links there to my original fiction available on Amazon.
