When I first wrote Takeover, I didn’t expect that book to spawn a series, or for the characters to span out into the incredibly vibrant people they became.
Some of the bits and pieces you’ll find here are out-takes from the novels. Some are vignettes that either occur between the novels or before. All are more or less canon in their world. I’ve placed them in chronological order, rather than in the order I wrote them.
I’ll be adding to this page over time.
