I have never had the greatest memory. This becomes a problem when I’m writing two books at the same time and trying to keep each of the stories on track. In fact, no matter the genre you write in, keeping yourself organized can be difficult for a lot of people. It’s taken me a lot… Read More

Pets in Space 4, which released this week, is a work of love and pride for all thirteen of the authors involved. Many of us also take advantage of the forum to add in animal family members that we’ve known and loved – I’m no exception to that, and my story Heart of the Spider’s… Read More
When I was younger, I watched this amazing animated series and then devoured the Jack McKinney novelizations. Somewhere along the way, I realized that the part I would discuss with my friends wasn't the cool technology, or the amazing action sequences --- I was pulled into the wonderful, painful love triangle between Lisa, Rick and Lynn Minmei. All that setting, and there is plenty, only mattered as to how it drove the characters together and apart. And thus an SFR aficionado was born. When I started writing seriously, I ended up all over the map. I dabbled in most of the speculative fiction genres with varying degrees of success, until I remembered the thing that really caught me about Robotech --- the coolest technology in the galaxy is worthless unless you have someone who cares about you to share it. So I started writing the stories I really wanted to read --- sweeping tales of galactic empires in decline, and love on the hardscrabble rim of civilization. Romance in both the classical and understood senses of the word, with brave, tough-as-nails women and the men determined to win their hearts. Hopefully, you'll find them as enjoyable as I do. JC Hay is an SFR Galaxy Award-winning author of Science Fiction Romance, a proud member of Romance Writers of America; the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal genre chapter; and the SFR Brigade (for fans and writers of Science Fiction Romance). He lives, writes, and knits in an outpost on the edge of habitable space, also known as the Northwest, and is a proud defender of the Oxford comma.
Red Zone, out April 22 I do everything with my smartphone. It’s my wallet, my stereo, my library, my mailbox, my photo album, my place to hang out with friends, my calendar and my office. I use it to turn on my heating when I’m on my way home, to make sure the house is… Read More

She survives on chocolate and caffeine.
We live in dark times. Every time we turn on the news or get on social media, we are bombarded by some other horrendous news story or tragedy. While I was writing Echoes from the Veil, I struggled to find time and space to breathe. My mind became so cluttered with current events, that some… Read More
