The Mendel Experiment

Blue Fire


Corree is a mutant created to live on a planet deadly to humans. She is one of hundreds of young people sent to Mendel as an experiment to see if they could adapt and survive on the planet without help from their creators. As the leader of a group sent to the rain forest, she has no idea that there are others like her. That is until the dreams begin haunting her sleep....

Riss: Leader of a mutant mountain group and someone Corree comes to admire greatly.

Greelon: an Ologrian scientist. Could what Corree was told be a lie?

Tanna: Corree's 'right hand' family member.

Jeron: A human who first betrayed, then helped Corree. 

Corin: The elder Windemere's clone.

My House of Dreams

Noki is a young Native American whose only desire is to work with his father making the arrow and spear points his tribe needs. That changes when the mysterious Spaniards invade their territory, build structures on land that was once free and open and teach a religion that Noki cannot understand. Then sickness invades and shatters the life his people have always known.


Father Antonio

My House of Dreams


Father Antonio was a living person, sent by Fr. deLasuen to build a new mission between San Diego and San Juan Capistrano. I have taken the few facts I could find and tried to show both sides of this tragic story as fairly as I could.

I researched the Payomkawichum (now called Luiseno's) as much as I could and relate their culture as accurately as I could.

Eti: Noki's brother, always inquisitive and impulsive.

Kawawish: the tribe's shaman.

Tahmahwit: Noki and Eti's mother.

Kwalah: Noki and Eti's father.

Maria: a mission Indian and Noki's friend.
