Lehana Saar learned the smuggler's trade the hard way--as an indentured servant to the Rim?s most notorious pirate. With the skills she acquired and now with her own ship, the star freighter Phoenix, Lehana is known throughout the Rim as a trafficker who will take any job, however dangerous, for the promise of a good profit. But when she's forced to crash land near a mining colony owned by the heinous, galactic cartel QueCorp, she'll need all her cunning and experience just to survive. And maybe, with a little luck, she might even turn a profit by forging a deal with the mine's owners. That is if she can turn a blind eye to the dismal conditions and merciless exploitation of the thousands of QueCorp's slave laborers.
Forty-five years ago Kash Trider and his wife crashed on Ydro-Down. Captured by QueCorp, they were forced into the mines with no chance of release. Qubition ore killed Kash's wife and now only two things keep him going: his hatred of QueCorp and the hope of freeing his two children from the same fate. When the Phoenix crashes near the mine, Kash risks everything to get his children on that ship. But will the hard-edged captain help him escape or will she turn him in for the five million DIC price on the head of a fugitive QueCorp slave?
Gravity is the first book in the Obsidian Rim series. If you crave galaxy-spanning adventure with a romantic twist and character-driven stories of unlikely heroes and heroines, then you?ll love joining Lehana and Kash as they travel the Rim and fight for justice and love against all odds.

Bloggat om Gravity
Maggie is an idealistic nerd with a romantic streak that surpasses any scientific explanation. Writing stories and making music has been a part of her DNA as long as she can remember. As a child she wanted to learn EVERYTHING, and as fast as possible. She wanted to know how a car engine worked and what made people tick. She organized children to re-enact her favorite movies in the backyard and wrote stories and plays about worlds she'd never seen.
Her love of life-long learning has garnered degrees in psychology, counseling, computer science, and culminated in an Ed.D. in Education. Though not seeking any more degrees, she loves learning more about physics and cosmology and it's relationship to culture and faith. Before retirement, Maggie had a career in academia, as well as opportunities to consult in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and the Middle East.
Though her past career provided many exciting and rewarding times, she is now doing what she'd dreamed of doing since the 4th grade-writing stories that entertain, share her love of learning, and that remake the world into what she wants it to be. With more than 20 titles now published, she is well on her way to reaching that dream. All of Maggie's fiction is character driven and reinforces that life is about making heroic choices one messy moment at a time.
Maggie and her husband have settled in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in the United States, where she now writes full-time. Her fiction spans romance, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy titles. Her current non-fiction work focuses on helping career authors succeed in the business and technical side of writing and publishing.
