Stories Of Girls Who Science And Scheme (short stories)


DIVE INTO A UNIVERSE OF SCI-FI WONDERS! This collection of sci-fi shorts features a variety of brainy young heroines - girls who engineer, tinker, experiment and more...

Voyage to far-off galaxies with girls who use their science savvy to fix rovers, rescue friends and protect alien critters. Visit steampunk realms where young ladies put their skills to the test building mechanical wonders and solving mysteries. Trek across sci-fi landscapes with girls who save androids and repair robots. Journey to post-apocalyptic futures where heroines use their tech know-how to bring down overlords and spread the most dangerous thing of all - knowledge. And drop in on a few near-future heroines who use their smarts to take down supervillains and bring a little more understanding into the world.

Proceeds from sales of this anthology will be donated to a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers. Let's show today's girls that they too can be tomorrow's inventors, programmers, scientists and more!

Tales from the Worlds of Hollow Moon

I'm delighted that a short story of mine, "The Non-Existence Of Gravity" (from To Dance Amongst The Stars), is included in this Brave New Girls anthology:

"Fifteen-year-old Cethlenn was lucky to be working with her Aunt Morrigan, a crazy yet talented engineer with a workshop on the moon of Asgard, Alpha Centauri. That is until Luison, an undercover corporation agent, tricks Cethlenn into a dangerous scrapyard experiment aboard the derelict USS Goliath..."

An older Cethlenn plays a pivotal role in my novel Avalon Job. Enjoy! Steph.
