Watch for my new novel,
available now from HarperCollins.
Self-educated and brown-skinned, Cassie works full time in her grandmother’s laundry in rural Mississippi. Illiterate and white, Judith falls for “colored music” and dreams of life as a big city radio star. These teenaged girls are half-sisters. And when they catch wind of their wayward father’s inheritance coming down in Virginia, they hitch their hopes to a road trip together to claim what’s rightly theirs.
A runaway slave sold into the service of troubled Emirate diplomat Mira LoDire, Costa, a female breeder, finds herself drawn to her reluctant mistress and discovers that her troubling visions may hold the key to defying ruthless Faraqui domination.
In a dark future universe, where human technology has not significantly halted human violence, scientists roam a distant star system selling an opium-like drug, and plans are made to fuse human DNA with a lifeform called the Grub in hopes of finally erasing humankind’s most violent tendencies.
