This is a small selection of the books that I have worked on with authors.
By SI Clarke
Confirmed geeks and childhood friends, Lem and Devon are looking forward to reuniting at a convention. Despite their diverging lives and their fair share of secrets, their shared love of cosplay and science fiction brings them together in ways that nothing else could.
But not all friendships are perfect. When their old schoolfriend Nerys joins them for the day, rifts soon begin to show as the three realise how far they’ve grown apart.
Struggling with Nerys’s insensitivity and her misguided approach to non-binary gender expression, the group are determined to make the most of their time together and embrace their nerdy selves. But with tensions rising, can their friendship withstand the dramatic ways their lives have changed?
A short, thought-provoking backdrop to the author’s White Hart series and her forthcoming Starship Teapot series, Stardust Wake provides an insightful glimpse at complex issues while brimming with passion for all things geek.

All The Wrong Love
By JN Supermom
I believe that as a child what happens in our life is not a choice, it is a circumstance. As we grow we begin to make choices, sometimes they are for the good and health of us; other times they are completely unhealthy. No matter what the choices are, you can always make a new one. This is my journey, as far back as I can remember there has been abuse. As I grew up, I made choices that kept the abuse going. Now, I choose to heal, let go of what haunts my mind and to forgive, those who did wrong. Forgiveness is not about them, it is about me.
Follow my journey through these writings, from my youngest memories of abuse, to the decisions I made that kept it and to my final stages of forgiveness.

I was wrong.
I need to learn how to fight, take care of myself.
My life might just depend on it.

Beneath the arcane Rustpeaks lies the city of Lansfyrd, where visibility is at an all-time low and airships rumble through the skies. Detective Lentsay “Len” Yoriya is a former homicide detective stuck at a burglary assignment as punishment for loving the wrong person. But when a xenophobic radio-shaman is murdered and the killers try to frame the city’s oppressed insectoids, Len sees a chance to prove her worth. Though high-profile murders are rarely uncomplicated.
In the city’s affluent quarters, Len’s partner Vli-Rana Talie works as a lector at the university, studying the history of a species that once ruled the world. As the temperature rises for her partner, Vli will soon realize that delving into history, that some would prefer was forgotten, will carry risks of its own. Especially when the ambitions of empires are affected.
Meanwhile, there is an election coming up, and the tension simmering in the city is reaching a boiling point. Vli and Len must find what allies they can and face the powers that threaten their home.
History never ends, and unless its lessons are heeded what was once the past might become the present.
