Tohono Sihu loved the desert. Some mornings she would stand watching the sunrise and find herself still standing and watching hours later. Although the desert plain was relatively flat and even, there were subtle variations. She knew every one of them like the back of her hand. Today as she scanned the desert, there was something out of place, something that felt alien and threatening to her.

She relaxed and let herself flow out across the sands, the way Sleeping Bear had taught her, extending her perception beyond its normal range. At its farthest reach just left of due east, she saw a tiny black dot that didn’t belong there. She stood perfectly still, like a hungry desert owl locked in on a tiny spot far below, waiting for the spot to move and turn into a tasty desert mouse.

“A Native American-themed Gem” – 5-star Amazon Review:
I loved this short story. Simply written, strikes just the right pace and tone for the occurrences. A romance with feeling and care for the Native American setting, and an unexpected ending. It conveys movingly the feeling and reality shifts so much a part of this spiritual people.

After a weekend of fun and excess he can’t remember, Ravi wakes to a living nightmare that will change him forever. Soon he finds out where he is headed, and whether he likes it or not, who he is.
Blue is for Boys is an outrageous science fiction short story with a new take on the battle of the sexes. It’s fun. It’s wild. It’s personal.

Book Buyer 5-star Review:
Witty, brilliant and INCREDIBLY funny, Blue Is For Boys mixes down-to-earth attitudes, futuristic thinking and a whole load of comedy in a cocktail that anyone can love! And make it shaken, not stirred please.

I couldn’t put this book down once I picked it up. It’s hard not to downright burst out laughing while reading. The text is fresh and witty, but the characters are portrayed so realistically. I could easily put myself into Ravi’s shoes and imagine every step of his wild predicament.

This story is well worth reading for anyone who’s looking for a good time and a bigger laugh!

This is a great short story. It’s got a good pace, interesting characters and a surprise ending. I think it would have been great as one of the original Star Trek episodes. I really like Ax Weller. I’m ready for more of his tales!
