Spin across the galaxy as Violet and her Grand Master hunt their enemies. Cracks in the portal web threaten galactic civilization, and suspicions fall on the mysterious Grand Masters with their immense psychic powers. Once, there were twelve Grand Masters, humans and aliens, on the Council. Now there are eleven. One was killed when the young pawn, Violet, rescued her Grand Master, Athanor, from the Red Queen’s dungeon. The Red Queen fled the fight and now she lurks out of sight, regenerating her energies.
Athanor devises a risky plan to expose his enemies on the Council and force the Red Queen into the open. His strategy will employ Violet’s empathic skills as his secret weapon. Meanwhile, she wrestles with her erratic talents and doubts about their unequal partnership. In their search for revenge, they contend with the portal crisis, psychic traps and hostile aliens. In the inevitable battle of Grand Masters, Violet and Athanor will face their worst nightmares. What is the sacrifice for victory?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Grand Master’s Game is Book 2 in a trilogy. My inspiration was based on superpowers with a chess theme like in Alice Through the Looking Glass. When I started to write the first book, Grand Master’s Pawn, I discovered material for three books. In book 1, the young empath, Violet, becomes the pawn of a Grand Master, and starts a quest for the culprits behind the portal failures. In book 2, she has joined her Grand Master, Athanor, in his plan to destroy their enemy, the Red Queen.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My heroine is a naive young woman, who has recently graduated. She is a loner, searching for acceptance as an illegally trained empath. The Grand Master has great powers. He is arrogant with a redeeming sense of humor. Many minor characters are weird aliens, including the dragons of Sythos, and the Brululians that resemble man-sized lobsters.
