He currently resides in California with his wife, daughter, and cat. Thanks to the support of his readers, he now is able to work full-time on his writing.
A long-time fan of all things science and space, the advent of digital publishing has finally given him an excuse to write it all down and share it with others. ("Others" meaning someone other than his poor wife and daughter.)

I really enjoyed this book and the first in the series, Aurora CV-01. It's fast moving and entertaining. I noticed a few reviewers complained there isn't enough character development or backstory. I don't agree. There is enough information to understand the plot and the characters' actions. Each volume seems to add a little more of the backstory. I think this preferable to authors who insert pages of the same recycled prose detailing each characters full history in every book. After the second book I only skim those sections anyway.
I do admit to being curious about some of the characters' histories and issues like the bio-digital plague, but I am content to learn more in the upcoming books.
I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

This is a pretty good story. It kept me enthralled until the end. While good, there are some "issues" with the story. Like others have mentioned, there is very little character development for the main cast of characters, other than the main character. There are a few minor grammatical errors; something that could be fixed w/ more proof-reading (but surprisingly, not as bad as a lot of the independently published material out there). My biggest complaint is a serious lack of a backdrop to the series. Who are the Jung (I'm assuming they're humans...assumingly they're chinese/japanese/korean)? What was the bio-digital plague? How/why did it start? We know more about the Ta'Akar/rebel war than we do about the one that's supposedly about to befall Earth. I'll be honest, when I read the first book, I seriously thought it was the second book of the series due to the lack of a explanatory backdrop to the series. Aside from those issues, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to come out.

Like my 4 star review of book 1 of the Saga this was a quick, enjoyable read, except for one glaring problem of logic that kept annoying me throughout the whole book. I am used to suspending belief for many of the scientific aspects of a good sci fi book, but I took this down another star because an aspect that made no sense to me. They were supposed to pay their way by harvesting the rings. They hired a crew which came with their own harvester ship and cargo ships. These workers used their own ships, did all the work, transported the harvested rocks back down to the planet, sold the harvest, and paid everyone off. What did they need the Aurora for. They used it as a platform for some of the sorting. Not exactly a big part of the job. If anything the hired crew might have paid the Aurora a small rental fee the use of their cargo bay for a few hours because it was easier to sort there than in their own cargo ships. I realize the author needed to find a way for the Aurora to get repairs and supplies, but this solution was ridiculous. The hired crew uses its own ships, does all the work, transports the goods to the buyers, collects the money, and then is supposed to pay you a big part of it - for what. But it was a fun read anyway.

After I read the first book (which I also gave 3 stars) I figured I had to read the second to see if I was being unfair, or if it was building towards something better. The story IS building, but too fast. The best way to describe it for me is "it's like watching a movie while holding down the fast forward button". So far there is really no backstories on any of the characters except the main one. And that was brief at best. No backstory on the situations they are finding themselves in, just go, go, go. This could be absolutely GREAT with just a little more detail.There really are some great characters, and I really like where the story has been, and seems to be going, I guess I just like to know more. Just my VERY humble opinion.

I have been reading Sci-Fi since the mid 1950's. This is a great beginning to a excellent story. I have read the first three books and am anxiously waiting for the next installment. I also love the idea of an opening episode and then continuing episodes. Takes me back to the years of pulp and the weekly movie serials. This however, being the written form, is much more entertaining and allows for more content and character development. Great start.

This book is the second book in the Frontiers Saga and it didn't disappoint. Great people and it was a fun read. The storyline is an aged one... Young officer finds himself suddenly the Captain and must keep everyone alive. There is reason this is a popular story line... It allows the reader to see someone grow into their potential, make mistakes and not be perfect... like us all.

I can't wait for the next book to come out... I will be reading it that day. Ahead full!

Enjoyed the first book but not so much this one, and will not be purchasing any more in the series. Leading characters are just too naïve to believe, and our hero spends way too much time with his girlfriend, which would NOT be tolerated in the real world. Sorry - really wanted to like but found "blah" the best adjective. And the print, editing, and even the cover are definite signs of self-publishing.

If you haven't read the first book in the Frontiers Saga series, then you should stop right now and do that. Unlike some series of books, these do not work as stand-alone stories. If you miss one, the next one won't make any sense.

In book 1, the Earth spaceship Aurora CV-01 tested an experimental prototype jump-drive. The jump-drive worked, but perhaps a little too well, taking the ship and her crew much, much farther than planned. A thousand light years from Earth, the intrepid explorers found themselves in the middle of a war. The Aurora was badly damaged and much of the senior staff was killed in the ensuing battle, leaving a handful of raw recruits in command. Their monumental task now is to get the ship repaired and get that jump-drive back to Earth, where it is badly needed to give Earth an edge in its own fight.

Book 2, The Rings of Haven picks up right where we left off last time: the humans are in desperate need of repairs and supplies for their ship, and their new ally just might be able to help them out. She tells them of a nearby planet called Haven, which is a gas giant very rich in natural resources. The rings of the planet also are a good source for materials to repair the ship, and one of the planet's moons has become an important center of trade. The Aurora can hide within the planet's rings while making repairs and taking on supplies. But the intrepid crew of the Aurora get a little more than they bargained for.

While down on the surface, an away team learns that there is an ancient legend surrounding a distant planet called Earth. The legend goes that all human life originated on this planet some 13,000 years ago. At some point, the people of this planet displeased the gods and as a punishment they were inflicted with a plague.
