Author has written 3 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation.

I'm currently working on the third installment of the Ascent trilogy for Star Trek: The Next Generation. For those who are not familiar with it, it is all about the resurrection of Lore and the continued story of TNG after Star Trek: Nemesis. The final --?--installment, which I am writing now, focuses more on Data.

UPDATE 9-19-2014: I am currently working on Ascent III, but it WILL NOT be the final installment. I have decided to continue on to Ascent IV, though I don't want to spoil anything by saying too much. Only know that Ascent IV will center primarily around B-4. ;)

My author page on Good-Reads holds url links to where you can download the Ascent novels in epub format:

PS: If anyone would like to send me a message/email regarding my work, please feel free. I can take constructive criticism, and I love arguing about Trek nerd stuff=) However, please don't send me notes about typos of grammar mistakes. We are all only human (except Data and Lore, of course. They never make grammar mistakes ;).

Also, I know that in Ascent I, I mistakenly wrote Diana Troi instead of Deanna Troi, and routinely wrote Geordie instead of Geordi. It's too late to correct those mistakes now, so let them slide ;)

Memory Files by Skathi reviews
Tel Jones has never loved before. Not in this way. The question is; can she hang on to it when things seem impossible to ever be right again?

Trust Issues by Dread Pirate reviews
A race who immediately imprison any visitor to their planet would seem to be a likely stumbling block for Picard and his crew - but it isn't the Intractans who will prove to be the main problem.
