About the Author
My writing career began with the publication of the first two books in the Sea-anan Saga, A Lost Kitten and A Forgotten Kitten. The themes and story lines of my books are based on my real-life experience in an interracial marriage. I also incorporate experiences my triplets went through growing up, like being treated as outsiders by kids who weren’t minorities or multiracial, or, now that they’re older, being labeled or avoided. My books have a message about not judging others before you get to know them. Also, by making the differences between races more exaggerated, I emphasize how, when you look past the tiny factor of race, we all share the same basic needs, desires, and cultures. The protagonists in books one and two of the Sea-anan Saga are children of an intergalactic marriage, so, just as in the original Star Wars Trilogy, the first book of the Oceanan Trilogy, A Seacat’s Love, goes back in time to tell the story of the parents who started it all.

The story begins as Rick McCall is living alone as a secret agent after becoming a widower and also after losing his only child. He plans to stay single and alone, but then meets Leonora - an alien warrior and scientist - trying to escape from a human controlled government lab. She begs Rick to help her as the lab scientists are performing experiments on her and her alien teammates. Unfortunately, several of her colleagues die before Rick can rescue her and her teammate, Tigif.
What follows is a love story between a human and an alien, along with the perils of a jealous suitor (Tigif). It is also a very good science fiction novel with a unique take on intergalactic marriage as well as relationships in general.
Ms. Kong delivers a well-written, easy read that will keep you interested until the very last page. I would definitely recommend this to science fiction fans who like unique and different story lines.
This is not one of those fantasies with buzzwords like “realm” and “magick” and rules made up on the fly, but not fully described. A Seacat’s Love is a solid character based sci-fi fantasy that takes place on earth with a limited cast of consistent characters who you get to know. A nice triangle of love vs. lust is set up and gradually builds in tension until the end. For these reasons I’m giving this book five stars.
Jessica Kong’s writing provides relaxing entertainment and a perfect bedtime read; I’m looking forward to the next one in her series. I find her writing inspiring and able to offer a message without being preachy. I recommend this to action, suspense, romance, and sci-fi readers looking for something unique.
