Book cover description: Four crew members of the SS SpoonZ and a robot stand on a planetary surface. The image of them is superimposed over a sky with swirling stars that features a ship whose hull looks like it’s shaped from spoons. The crew members from the right are Lieutenant Iris, who’s holding her white cane with the red stripe and has her other hand on the head of her aqua guidebot, Clarence; Security Chief Leanna Lartha is aiming a grey tubular weapon at something while smirking. She has two leg prostheses and one is glowing; Commander Davan waves a blue arm at Iris. He has a prominent trunk, which he also uses to communicate in his own language; And Mr. Herbert, Chief of Engineering, has his back to us while pointing to the sky.

Season One: Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space!


Lieutenant Eileen Iris and the command crew of the S.S. SpoonZ haven’t a clue what it means to be disabled. An unexpected conversation with intergalactic janitor brings up the question but offers no answers before he’s ’ported away.

Unphased, duties resume as Iris manages an overprotective guidebot; Security Chief Lartha and her sentient prostheses offer kick-ass protection; Mr. Herbert’s inventiveness is a godsend (although he’s not quite grasped how to flirt); Commander Davan’s affable personality comes through whether trumpeted, texted, or signed; and Captain Worq’s gracious but firm leadership keeps everyone at their best.

Until on one mission, where the crew tears through space.

Just a little bit.

Readers, get ready—for the gleekin’ ride of your life! Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space is an exuberant romp that ditches all the stale clichés of sci-fi in favour of what’s fresh, exciting, and truly possible. Here is a tale that shows when it comes to accessibility, not even the sky is the limit. Buckle up and enjoy!

Life in the ’Cosm

When he’s not gorging on desserts, calming his hypochondriacal mum, or getting bone-crunching hugs from his warrior dads, Virj Ofreesin spends his time writing a fantasy novel about Frayda, the elegant half of the two-headed Dwa. Life is adequately mediocre until he learns the Dwa are gravely ill, and a mystical cure grows on a planet between two infamously warring worlds. Ignoring all warnings of danger, Virj embarks on the journey to be Frayda’s real-life hero, armed only with his stylus, and a boingy-haired nuisance who tags along.

(This is book #1 of the ’Cosm series!)

STARGAZERS: Microtales from the Cosmos

Edited by Paul Jarvey and Erin MacNab

My microtale, With My Kind, is included in this collection where all the works have a star theme. In my story, a mobility disabled protagonist is captured with others, and destined for “restructuring.” But this Crip has their own idea about their destiny.

Please note that at this time, there is a typo in my story in the print version that makes the first paragraph confusing, so the following “Buy from” link is for the ebook version.

Space Opera Libretti

Edited by Brian McNett and Jennifer Lee Rossman

My story, The Silken Eclipse, is included in the non-dystopian and quite musical Space Opera LibrettiThe Silken Eclipse is about a multi-tentacled and multi-talented diva who has to deal with a sub-par ingenue in a famous opera company. That’s right, it’s a space-opera space opera! I think I combined the atmosphere of the 17th century with the absurdity of Life in the ’Cosm.

We Shall Be Monsters

My Monster CripLit story, The Hilltop Gathering, appears in what I’ve affectionately nicknamed “the Frankenthology” known as We Shall Be Monsters (Derek Newman-Stille, Renaissance). Frances Elizabeth, or Frank E., is the first disabled protagonist I’ve ever written. The story takes place on her sixteenth birthday, as the family comes together to celebrate it. She receives a gift from her mother that sparks quite the reaction.
