From the Author
"The Friendly Ambassador" stories blend Greek Myth with traditional science-fiction, taking a different approach to the legend of Atlantis, the origination of the Amazons, and the true nature of mythical creatures such as the Cyclops and Centaurs as aliens from other worlds. The story is set on Atlantian Earth, on board various ships in space, and on the far off world of Eden. It is full of rich characters, monsters and hardware, but it is packaged in a totally different way to anything that's been done before.
Although there are many visual centrepieces, it is the relationships between the principal characters and their understanding of each other that is the main focus of the story. At first opposing one another, many of the characters are forced together and learn that they are very much the same despite their very different natures and origins. All the aliens have different viewpoints and agendas; there are no blind killers, and the borders between the good guys and the bad guys are deliberately blurred. The idea is to break through the barriers of both race and creed and to show that all are the same underneath.

From the Inside Flap
"The Friendly Ambassador" is a four part science fiction epic in which female characters feature very prominently, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The reason for this is that I like writing about women. It gives my stories a female bias, but I think they are better for it. In "The Friendly Ambassador" women dominate the scene and are often thrust into situations that put them at terrible risk, sometimes with harsh results, and even in lighter moments some form of threat is never too far away. If there is death and violence, then it is graphic and brutal. Chick Lit this is not. In some ways the strength, sexuality and appeal of the women featured in these stories is created by the many threats that they face and must fight to overcome
. These are women who are up for the fight and give it their all. The examination of unusual relationships is also explored in the story. You will find many romantic and love interests in "The Friendly Ambassador," these can be normal heterosexual relationships, lesbian, and even between different races.
