Framed for murder, homicide detective, Jack Cluewitt, has to stay one step ahead of his own Near-Earth Police Department to find the real killer.

In Troy, New York, Near-Earth-Police homicide detective, Jack Cluewitt, is investigating a mysterious antique paper book that is also a map to a secret source of unlimited fuel. International Space Corporation will kill for the secrets of the belt, and the Green Party will go to any lengths to keep the location secret; they will steal, kill or die for their cause. When a Green Policewoman is found dead in a Moon mining cave, a bullet in her heart, Jack Cluewitt is framed for the murder. He has to stay one step ahead of his own Near-Earth Police Department to find the real killer. But his goal to clear his name and find the murderer puts him, his partner, Indigo Jane, and Organ Enforcement Agent, Rappel Luna, in grave danger as they fight to secure a secret fuel that could put Water and its corrupt powers out of business.

~Old news~

I was First Runner up at Gypsy Shadow Publishing for their first writing prompt contest for the short story, The Librarian Who was Plugged In. This is a thirty thousand word story and I hope to see this published electronically some day.

I’m happy to announce my flash feghoot Zombie Bouillabaisse is up at Macabre Cadaver Magazine right now!

Snow White and the Seven Neanderthals appeared in the August/September issue of Alienskin magazine; that was my first sale. I will try to find a permanant home for it soon.

I’m excited to say I finished the space detective novel and am in the editing stages. I had a lot of fun at Albacon and I’m also working on what I hope will be a short story pro sale but I can’t say more right now. I will post about the story proposal whether I’m successful or not because it’s interesting how it came about. Believe it or not, this is still a work in progress and I will post as soon as I know if I get the sale. Thanks for the congrats and the link! :o) More updates soon.  (I’m working with my web host on fixing my web site. Hopefully they’ll get it fixed. They couldn’t fix it so I changed hosts:)



Ruth was invited to read her science fiction at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s WRPI 91.5. She received an Honorable Mention at Speculation’s Rumor Mill for her micro story, Zombie Bouillabaisse, and will make it available along with many other short stories in the future.
