Hard at work….

My editor considers how to…

Straighten my dangling participle.

We are working on Book 4 of the Passion Quest series. For now, it is titled Love and the Spaceman.

This book documents the final quest for Earth

Dr. Amy Toller is on her final quest for peace in the Galaxy – her last chance to find Earth. On the third planet orbiting an uncharted star, the team of alien anthropologists discovers a remnant of humans who escaped Earth 2,000 years in the past. Before she can learn the secrets they harbor, the team from the Starcruiser Wilhelm must save the humans from a destruction unleashed by their own atomic experiments.

In this scene, a young alien anthropologist has been collecting fossils. But {{butt}, she has put the mission at risk. I bet you know what happens when someone does that…


Alivia heard the whistle as the unbreathable air in the shuttle was exchanged for oxygen. She turned toward Dan, but he was hunched over the console. When he opened his helmet, she opened hers and inhaled the familiar scent of the spacecraft’s interior.

“I’m sorry I made us late,” she said. “But, it was really important.”

He turned. “You knew the rules when you went outside. You broke the rules. Sorry doesn’t cut it.”

“So, what do we do now?”

“We sit here and wait for the next window.”

“How long is that?”

“Just about the right amount of time for me to administer your discipline,” he said, with a snarl in his tone.


“Yes, I’m the captain of this little tub, and you will submit for the punishment I deem necessary.” He swiveled the seat around and patted his knees. “You, being an alien anthropologist, know better than anyone why this must be done. Obedience to commands from your superior and adherence to regulations are essential for a ship’s company to survive in the depths of space.”


“Yes, Miss Alivia, it is time to bare your butt for a spanking. If you give me no more trouble about this, then I will explain to Captain Osimov that we were detained by a malfunction and this will go no further. Of course, you can refuse my discipline. In that case, I will refer the matter to Osimov. I’m certain you know what she will do about it.” He sighed. “If you are lucky, you will merely be banned from ever leaving the Wilhelm again, until we return to Eden. If you catch her in a bad mood…” He left the potential punishment unsaid.

“I’m sorry,” she said, again. “It is a very important fossil.”

“I don’t doubt that. Discipline is important too. Shall we be about it?” Again, he patted his knee. “Please bare your bottom.”

Alivia considered her options and found there were none. She removed the spacesuit and touched the stud under her jumpsuit collar. The material relaxed, and she reached back to open the flap over her bottom. She bent over Dan’s knees and waited.

He smacked her butt again and again.
