I thought I’d share a few things from the new book I’m working on. I am halfway through writing a sci-fi novel, and this one is (gasp) PG-13. While there is a central romance and sexual tension in spades, this book is more mainstream and I may get it published under my real name. If I do, I will be sure to put a page up on my site so you can all have access to the buy links and progressive books which are PG-13 and under. I will still write erotic romance, but this particular novel called out to me, and I had to write it.
To preface, my sci-fi novel is about a young woman who’s a medical officer aboard a science exploration vessel 100 years in the future. They encounter a humanoid alien drifting in space, not wearing a mask, but somehow alive, and they bring him aboard. The book is full of delicious tension, and it’s been very neat to write. I’ll keep you all updated on my journey from manuscript to publication. In the meantime, please enjoy my dream cast below, should it ever hit the cinemas. 😉
In no particular order:
- Dr. Alistair Mansfield – a brilliant British medical professor and astrophysics genius. He’s cranky, homosexual, and a genius. He is Sakota’s colleague in the lab aboard the Sleipnir science vessel. I picked Patrick Stewart because; well, enough said.
2. Commander Brent Samuel – the military guns aboard the Sleipnir, imposing, callous, and one of the antagonists in the book. He is an act-first, think-second kind of person, and very dangerous. I chose actor Teddy Sears after watching “Curve,” because the guy can play heavies really well.
4. Dr. Sakota Thorell – The main heroine. Sakota is a young medical officer, brilliant, capable, and bright. She is the first person to encounter Astraeus. I chose Emma Watson because she is a very nuanced actress and would be brilliant in the role.
5. Hisoka Phuong – Hisoka is Sakota’s assistant in the lab and a funny, likeable person who likes to poke fun at most situations. I chose Boo Boo Stewart, because the guy is Affable with a capital “A.”
6. Astraeus – The hero of the novel, Astraeus is an alien with human features. He is found floating in space outside the Sleipnir without a mask on, and mysteriously alive. Little is known about him in the beginning of the novel.
I chose actor Manu Bennett, because Astraeus is Pacific Islander in appearance, and in addition to being a great actor, Manu looks like him. He is who I would request to play him, in the event the book was sanctioned to become a film.
