● Lightyears II: Intragalactic Terrorism
● Lightyears III: Ominous Intervention
Lightyears Trilogy is an adventurous science fiction novel with three stories, the novel Lightyears, the novella Lightyears II: Intragalactic Terrorism, and the novelette Lightyears III: Ominous Intervention. It’s a story of two brothers whose lives are changed forever as they travel through space and time, destroy evil empires, and save the galaxy.
Baas and Roedie live on the desert sand planet Kaskoon with their father Olossky. When their father is taken prisoner by the BlueMar Empire, the two brothers set out on a quest across the galaxy in search for him. They soon join in a fight to destroy the BlueMar Empire. Later, embarking on a mission to explore uncharted regions, they come across an advanced civilization. Their journey takes them through time to another galaxy where they defeat yet another evil empire. The group splits and some remain in the new galaxy, while the others return back through time to their own galaxy. An investigation takes them into the past to an ancient kingdom to find out the coordinates of a device they must destroy before it destroys the entire BlueMar Galaxy.
Generations later, the galaxy is littered with terrorist organizations and the evil descendants of Baas. Roedie travels to the future to help his great great grandson, Destin, defeat the evil and restore freedom to the galaxy.
A time of peace has finally arrived. The advent of new inventions makes space travel quicker between galaxies and provides protection for both galaxies against the certain doom of an alien onslaught.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Growing up, I was inspired by many science fiction films and books. I was 15 years old and my creative writing started to flow onto paper. I wanted to create my own worlds. When others can enjoy them, that is a bonus.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
There a many characters in Lightyears Trilogy. The main character, Roedie Cantin, starts off when he is seventeen and at the end of the third book in the trilogy, he is seventy-one. I used my imagination for character creation and tried to include many unique characters.
“Are you all right?” Kortha asked as he ran to Mara-Harcheit’s throne.
An old man with long, white hair and a matching white beard had stood from his throne, staggered a few steps and fell to the gray stone floor. He looked up at Kortha as he approached.
“No. I have sensed something very foreboding… Help me up. Bring me outside. I need some fresh air,” Mara-Harcheit said.
Kortha brushed his own black and gray hair back and helped the old man up from the stone floor. He put his arm around Mara-Harcheit’s red robe and assisted him to slowly exit the throne room. They walked together down a gray stone corridor. The passage opened up to an area at the top of a stairway where an odd looking skeleton could be seen on the floor, propped up against the wall. There was an old knife wedged in its ribs. They made their way down the set of stone steps to a dark atrium and exited the castle.
Outside, sunlight brightened the castle and surrounding field of golden grass. They walked toward the front pillars and Mara-Harcheit leaned up against one of them. Green vines wrapped up and around the stone pillars. He looked over to Kortha, a man with only one eye, as the other had been lost in an ancient battle. Only an empty socket remained.
“I haven’t dreaded anything like this for over a millennia…” Mara-Harcheit said as he made his way to a stone bench.
They both sat down and looked down the hill and across the field toward the mountains.
“What did you sense?” Kortha asked.
“As you know, we Yithas live for many millennia. On rare occasion, some of us are born with the ability of telepathy, thought transfer, and clairvoyance…but most, like yourself, don’t. Yet, I have never sensed anything like this, Kortha. You and I were exiled from the Nyctogluktoouss Galaxy almost one thousand one hundred years ago because we stood against the incredible evil there. I was different and they knew it. We were kicked out, sent through that awful wormhole and ended up here in the Regulominuss Galaxy. Shortly after we settled here on Yibon, we found they had sent their assassins to follow and kill us. They must have really thought I was a threat to them with my abilities. I’m so thankful that I was able to summon the Xyinna Wolves to help wipe out the assassins. I had you leave that skeleton up at the top of the stairs as a reminder of our persecution and exile. Thank you for standing by my side and being my good friend and aide.
“What I saw was like nothing I could have ever imagined before. This foreboding, ominous sense, this urgency…it overwhelms me. They are coming… Billions of the evil Yithas are coming this way. They are not after us this time. They are coming to invade both the Regulominuss Galaxy and also the BlueMar Galaxy. Their numbers seem endless. They’re in battleships and fighter ships…all of them. In this vision, they haven’t reached the Yitheria Wormhole yet.”
