Fallen Sparrow

Stay focused, stay alert, and never fall in love

To most people, Katie Baker is an ordinary twenty-something secretary employed at a Houston-based aerospace firm. Yet, unknown to those around her, Katie is also an expert pilot and security protection driver. She speaks several languages fluently, mastered multiple martial arts, and is skilled in a wide range of firearms and bladed weapons. Katie is also a trained assassin with four kills to her name. Above all, she can make herself drop-dead gorgeous and knows all the tricks to seduce a man.

Katie’s real name is Katerina Kuznestov, and she is a Russian spy.

Ordered by her handler to seduce a geeky software engineer working on a classified project, Katie jumps in with all the enthusiasm of her previous assignments. Soon after becoming intimate with her target, Katie begins to develop feelings for him—feelings that her training and experience do not allow.

When the mission reaches its critical stage, will Katie stay true to her training or will her affection for the engineer jeopardize the mission, risking both of their lives?

Her tale begins when New Orleans homicide detective Jack Diemont discovers her latest victim. Believing he is on the trail of another serial killer, Jack will spare no effort to see justice served.

She was Born to Privilege

On September 12, 2081, the Yellowstone super-volcano finally erupted resulting in a global catastrophe that nearly drove the human species to extinction.  One group of refugees found shelter at the old NORAD command center at Cheyenne Mountain, and six hundred years later, their descendants live in the subterranean city of Norad.

Yet safety comes with a price.  The population level is strictly controlled, with food and other supplies severely rationed.  All procreation occurs at the Breeding House, and humans are genetically engineered for whatever role they will play in society.  Living at the Breeding House is an elite group of women, called the Breeders, whose sole function in society is to give birth.  The Breeders live in luxurious conditions, wanting for nothing, and they are looked upon as saints by the common people.

Drusilla is a sixteen-year old Pre-Breeder, enjoying the privileges of her rank.  Yet, in spite of her illustrious status, she begins to question the inequity of her society.  Her sheltered life is suddenly shattered when she is kidnapped by a band of dissidents and forced to look upon her world with a new perspective.  Once she learns the full truth about the injustice of her culture—and about Earth’s past disaster—can she truly be happy with her place in society?
