THE PORTAL NOVELS

WARRIORS OF ST. ANTONI IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER 

The Warriors of St. Antoni

 On the frontier world of St. Antoni, you got toughor you died.

The knowledge that it was possible to open a doorway to other worlds had been a poorly kept secret. When the knowledge of Portal technology leaked out into the general public, unregulated gates began to pop up like fleas in the summer. Unlike new citizens of formally sanctioned colonies, who received every advantage their sponsors could provide, immigrants who came through an illegal gate only had the supplies and technology they carried to build a new world. Forced to depend on their own resources to deal with the alien plants and bizarre animals they found, they survived using their wits and ingenuity. But they came because of man's lust to explore, and because they wanted freedom and adventure. With intelligence, strength and courage they built a new society.

This is the story of sisters Bethany, Jeanne and Iris, and the choices they make to survive on their alien world. Bethany marries a mercenary warrior to shield her family from a predatory neighbor. To her surprise, the marriage of convenience turns into a love match, but they are beset with enemies and must learn to trust as well as love. Iris chooses an arranged marriage with a beloved old friend, but did he marry her for love or for her father's mine? Jeanne and the son of her family's greatest enemy run away to a distant city to build a new life away from both their families, but discover you can't run away from who you are.
