The Jazz Healy, Reunion Series!

Garbadon Major - Jazz Healy, Reunion, Book 3
Buy from Amazon, Google Play, and other bookstores.

Jazz Healy and her gene-spliced cat, Rainbow Ninja, are deep in the bowels of the planetoid Kinon. They’re hunting Arteen Vendta, a scumbag with nothing much going for him except a long rap sheet.

Jazz doesn’t feel like she’s got much going for her right now, either. A few months ago a budding relationship broke down and the hurt she continues to feel has only reaffirmed her belief that it’s better to be alone. Still, while Rainbow Ninja is great, Jazz does find herself missing the type of company she can hold a conversation with.

Cue the entry of Jazz’s criminal kingpin mother with a job offer. A basic search-and-retrieve with excellent pay but Jazz knows things are never that clear-cut when Mother’s involved. Being needed is an attractive feeling, though. Will Jazz wise up in time or will she find herself strangled in Mother’s web?

Download for FREE from Amazon and other bookstores.

Jazz Healy is estranged - purposefully - from her mother, who runs a galaxy-spanning criminal organization. Twelve years ago she lost her father when pirates attacked a freighter delivering supplies to a frontier planet. Since then she’s decided it’s better, safer, to keep to herself. Even if means being alone. And often lonely.

Right now, she's delivering pets, of all things, to a lawless space-station. Apparently even the most hardened criminals like animal companionship. One critter especially is making the cargo run worthwhile: a gene-splice kitten. Jazz will earn a cool hundred thousand Commonwealth dollars if she safely delivers the little fluff ball to its new owner.

But cargo that valuable brings out all sorts, from wannabe animal activists to tech cultists with enhancement fetishes. And maybe even Jazz's mother. Though the cat is only one bullet point on her agenda.

For the last six standard months Jazz Healy has been scouring the Independent Fringes for her father. He’s been missing, presumed dead, for over a decade. But new information has come to light and Jazz is determined to leave no asteroid unturned.

However, the same troubling questions keep popping up. If he still lives, why has he never come looking for her? Twelve years, and not a single comm? Other things weigh on her, too. Like how she feels about Darren Tollett. Not long ago he knocked her unconscious while trying to steal some valuable cargo. Now is she, if not in love, in quite-like with him?

Those dilemmas are soon on the backburner, though, as Jazz finds herself entangled in the political machinations of a royal family. She and Tollett will need all their wits, and maybe some luck, to get themselves out of this predicament in one piece.

I write a lot, blog a bit, and am very easily distracted by Twitter. I mainly write novel length sci-fi but also dabble in short stories and, very occasionally, poetry. I have one cat. Just one. Any more would be chaos.

For the record, S.C. Mae is a pseudonym. There's no particular reason for the pseudonym, except that they're fun and kind of secret agent-y. 'The name's Mae, S.C. Mae, license to write. Except, well, one doesn't actually need a license to write, which is really quite great, but anyway, the name's Mae, S.C. Mae.'

How to Support S.C. Mae

So you're nearly at the bottom of the page. Nice!

Maybe you've got a scrolling fetish (hey, that's okay, nobody's judging here) or maybe you're thinking to yourself, 'I quite like what this bloke is doing. How can I support S.C. Mae in his creative writing endeavors?'

That, my friend, is a wonderful question, and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to hear you ask.

The best way to support me is by buying my books.

Another way to support me is to Buy Me A Coffee. BMC gives people the opportunity to either donate a small one-off amount towards my writing, or to subscribe on a monthly or yearly basis. If you donate, I'll gift you the first two books of the Reunion series in either .epub, .mobi (Kindle), or .pdf formats. All you'll need to do once you've donated is let me know via the email address you donated from which ebook format you prefer. Full details on how to obtain your free books are included in the thank-you email you'll receive once your donation is processed. Please be assured that I'll never send you unsolicited emails or share your email address with others.

If you become a subscriber, however, you'll receive those two books plus all new books launched during the time of your membership, as well as other exclusive content, including the Jazz Healy origin short story. Membership is $3 per month or $30 for 12 months.

And don't forget that you can also subscribe to my free newsletter. Every so often (that's the best timetable I've come up with so far) I'll send out a newsletter detailing what's been happening in my writing world. Don't worry, I won't spam you with advertisements, or anything like that.

Anyway, thanks for visiting. I hope you've enjoyed yourself and that I'll see you again soon!
