When you wish upon a falling star, er, UFO…

Young widow Kevanne Girardi catches sight of a meteorite streaking across the sky and wishes for a good handyman to help make her rundown lavender farm a big success. Instead, she gets a shapeshifting alien who apparently has never seen a leaky faucet before. But his loving and noble spirit make him just the man to fix her wounded heart. He hasn’t promised her forever, but a girl can hope, can’t she? Maybe she’ll make another wish…

When his ship tumbles out of the sky and lands on Earth, Chameleon never expects to fall for a human woman. Unfortunately, he can’t stay. He made a mistake that led to the devastation of an entire planet, and now the survivors are depending on him to get them to safety. He must repair his ship and leave before the Xeno Consortium finds him and Earth becomes endangered, too. But oh, he wishes he could stay with Kevanne forever…

Can a twist of fate make their wishes come true?

The aliens struggle for life and love continues…

The ‘Topian [Back]Story….how it all began…

Located in the Scutum-Centaurus arm of the Milky Way was a planet called ‘Topia, inhabited by aliens who were created as a genetic experiment.

The ‘Topians were engineered in a laboratory by the Xeno Consortium, alien geneticists who collected (some say stole) DNA from across the galaxy, created new life forms which they seeded on the previously uninhabited planet.

(By the way, you should know that eons ago the Xenos collected DNA samples from Earth and tinkered with the human genome while they were here. Now back to the ‘Topians…)

Within ‘Topian DNA is a mating gene that matches to only one other individual. If they encounter their “genmate” the bond is instantaneous and unbreakable.

Over the millennia, the ‘Topians reproduced, thrived, and advanced to such a degree that the Xenos began to worry their pet project would surpass them and usurp their supremacy.

So the Xenos destroyed ‘Topia. They scorched the entire planet, setting the atmosphere on fire and destroying every living thing.

A few thousand Xenos managed to escape, evacuated by a Xeno rebel named Chameleon. Chameleon sent the refugees to secret haven planets where the consortium couldn’t find them. One group ended up on Earth. The story of how they found genmates here is told in the Alien Castaways series: Chameleon, Wingman, Psy, Shadow, Inferno, and Tigre.

Edwin Mysk was one of those who settled on Earth.  Over the decades, he nurtured our technology, built his own tech company, and amassed a fortune. Although he had a good life, he never found his genmate like the others, and he was haunted by the massacre on ‘Topia. The desire for vengeance began to grow. He decides to leave Earth, reunite the scattered ‘Topian colonies, and seek out the Xenos and make them pay for the atrocity they committed.

He lands on Laxiter 4 where supposedly there is a large colony of ‘Topians, but finds a lone ‘Topian female…who turns out to be his genmate. Their genetics instantly bond them together.

Except Lala isn’t ‘Topian, but a shapeshifting Xeno.

Mysk and Lala’s story is told in the Genmate Dilemma trilogy, Genmate Mistaken, Genmate Forsaken, Genmate Imperiled.

An interview with a mind-reading alien

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing tech magnate Edwin Mysk. Few people know that the founder of Mysk Industries isn’t human, but an alien from planet ‘Topia. He’s leaving Earth soon, and I was fortunate to get an exclusive interview with him before he leaves.

Cara: Thank you for meeting with me, today, Mr. Mysk.

Mysk: My pleasure. Just call me Mysk. You can call me Edwin if you prefer, but that’s only the alias I assumed while living on Earth.

Cara: How long have you lived on Earth?

Mysk: A little over 50 years.

Cara : And you came here as an adult?

Mysk: Yes. I was 25 in ’Topian years when I arrived. My ship got caught in a jump space time warp, and we were thrown back into time.

[My jaw drops as I do the math].

Cara: You must have really good genes. I would have guessed you were 35-ish, 40 tops.

Mysk: ‘Topians have a much longer lifespan than humans. I’m considered in my prime—although most Veritals my age have long since mated.

[A Verital is one of 5 subspecies of ’Topian]

Cara: If you’ve been here for more than 50 years, why leave now? To find a genmate?

Mysk: No, I’ve accepted I’ll never mate. If I had a genmate, I would have met her by now. I’m leaving to seek justice for my people. Our planet was destroyed by the Xeno Consortium, and the few survivors were scattered among dozens of haven planets. I intend to reunite the lost ones, mobilize them, and make the Xenos pay for their crimes.

[If you could see his face. Scary. I decide to change the subject]

Cara: Do you have like, super alien powers?

Mysk: Mental telepathy.

Cara: You can read minds? Can you tell what I’m thinking right now?

Mysk: Not without your consent. That would be a violation of the Verital Code of Ethics. Many people believe that once you break the code for any reason, you’re compromised. The power becomes seductive, and you’re unable to resist breaking it again.

Cara: So, Veritals have this power they can’t use.

Mysk:  We communicate telepathically with our genmates. Mating for Veritals is mental as well as physical, making bonding the most intimate experience there is. Or so, I’m told. I don’t have a genmate to communicate with. But, I have used my mental powers to counsel others, help people to recover lost memories, settle issues. Always with their consent.

Cara: Always? You’ve never violated the code of ethics.

Mysk: [Expression grim, he shifts in his chair]: Only once, in an extreme case where the ends justified the means. A human woman was kidnapped and mind-raped by another Verital. Earth has no laws against mind-rape. But kidnapping is a crime. I convinced the perpetrator to turn herself in to the police and confess.

Cara: Convinced her how?

Mysk: I implanted the idea in her mind.

Cara: You can do that?

Mysk: I can erase memories or implant false ones. I can control someone’s mind and make them do anything I want them to. That’s why adhering to the Verital Code of Ethics is so important.

Cara: But you broke the code once. You’re not worried you’ve been compromised?

Mysk: No. I personally don’t believe one can be so easily seduced by the power, and I know, I can’t. I’m stronger than that.

Genmate Mistaken (Genmate Dilemma description)

Vengeance led him to love. But will it destroy him, too?

Vengeance keeps ’Topian Edwin Mysk from surrendering to the pain of the destruction of his home world and the loss of the genmate he might have had. One day the Xeno Consortium will know his wrath. Until then, he will pursue his self-imposed mission to locate and reunite the massacre survivors.

When he lands on Laxiter 4, he finds the ’Topian settlement abandoned, except for a lone woman. Lala. Their immediate, intense bonding proves she’s his genmate, the one female his genetics have chosen for him—the one he’d believed lost forever. With Lala at his side, he resumes his search for the others.

But Lala is not the ’Topian he thinks she is. She’s a shapeshifting Xeno, a disgraced former general in the consortium military wrongly convicted of helping ’Topian insurgents escape annihilation. Edwin Mysk offers her best chance to locate the escapees and receive a stay of execution—as long as he doesn’t discover her secret.

Will the gulf between hatred and love, despair and desire, prove too wide for them to cross? Is their genmate bond a tragic mistake?
