It's Never Too Late

It's Never too Late    

I grew up in an extremely poor family that was dysfunctional in many ways. We lived in the old segregated south, an era many of my readers have no knowledge of. This and a hardscrabble existence as well as an addictive personality gene(s) that apparently runs in our family shaped my life and played a part in me finally realizing a life-long dream and becoming a writer when I was about fifty years old. This autobiography, now in print and ebook both was begun in response to fans wanting to know more about me, and eventually one of my publishers thought it might make an interesting book. Many members from Betty’s side of the family were amazed at all the things they hadn’t known about me. You can judge for yourself now whether my publisher had the right idea of me doing an autobiography. I hope you are both entertained and possibly that some of you will learn a number of life’s lessons that I discovered the hard way!

Savage Survival    

Savage Survival is a coming of age story like no others and Lyda Brightner is a character you won't forget. When eleven year old Lyda is thrown into the midst of millions of undisciplined humans, with no parents or guardian to protect her as she grows up, she has only her own bravery and her belief in the innate goodness of humans to sustain her. For six years, Lyda must endue the most ghastly and brutal environments imaginable, put there by invulnerable aliens for reasons of their own. After her first horrible experience in a barren desert, she vows that come what may, she will live, even while millions die, for she is determined to find what is behind such hideous treatment by the aliens.

THE CRESPERIAN SERIES

Human by Choice    

Human by Choice. SF. Best-selling science fiction print author Travis S. "Doc Travis" Taylor and best-selling ebook author Darrell Bain have combined talents to produce a new science fiction thriller. Several alien lifeboats make it to earth in widely separated spots after their interstellar spaceship malfunctions. One of the aliens comes down near the home of Kyle Leverson, a former army intelligence officer and now a widowed science journalist. The aliens think they can never go home but they are able to convert their bodies into duplicates of human beings over a period of time. Kyle helps the alien during the process as it becomes a human female, yet retains its previous knowledge and abilities, including a powerful perceptive sense unlike anything known to humans. What Kyle doesn't realize is that the alien intends to become a human female in every aspect, with him as the teacher. How does one instruct an alien from a wildly different culture in every characteristic of human behavior, including sex? It's a chore far harder than Kyle Leverson ever imagined, especially since he and his alien guest have to contend with the other aliens, who are being instructed (or in a couple of cases, captured and abused) by different groups of people in several other nations. Their outlook on what it means to be human is different from Kyle's and the results will be evident when the aliens have to fight each other, even though they've never done such things before. Fortunately for Kyle, his alien is a fast learner. But it also becomes such a compatible and beautiful human female that he finds himself falling in love. A truly thoughtful and sophisticated science fiction novel, by Travis S. Taylor, the author of Warp Speed, The Quantum Connection and Von Neuman's War (in collaboration with John Ringo) and Darrell Bain, the multiple award-winning author of Alien Infection, Strange Valley, Savage Survival and The Melanin Apocalypse.

Available at Amazon or  Barnes & Noble.
 

Human by Choice    

The Y Factor. SF. When a stranger invades geneticist Mai Trung's office, he has to say only one word to get her interested in leaving with him: Xenobiology. Rumors have been rife about aliens on Earth, but only a select few know that they arrived on widely scattered lifeboats from a wrecked spaceship. Mai is brought into the secret group working with a few of the surviving aliens because they have one trait that is almost incredible for its implications: They can turn themselves into perfect humans. More than perfect, actually. Closer to superhuman. And Mai is told she will be working with one of the aliens in order to help figure out how to apply that ability to humans; to heal injuries, to slow or even reverse the aging process, to make oneself healthier or more attractive. In the meantime, other scientists are re-engineering some of the alien technology in order to build a faster-than-light spaceship before other nations who have captured aliens do so. From that first word in her office, Mai begins an incredible journey that will eventually take her to the stars and into a whole new existence.

And Sergeant Edward "Bang" Bangler finds himself in the midst of two of the biggest battles he's ever been in -- a battle for his heart, and a battle for his home. In one mission of interstellar exploration, Earth finds perhaps its greatest allies and its greatest enemies, as they and the Cresperian race discover the inimical race of Snappers, a multiple stellar system empire of ruthless ferocity. Unfortunately, when the Snappers decide to expand their domain to include the Cresperian and Earth systems, the two civilizations must find a way to work together in order to prevent their own extermination.

Three for the Money    

Three for the Money (Williard Brothers/Medics Wild series)
Adventure.

Since their introduction in Medics Wild!, the zany Williard brothers' adventures have become increasingly science fictionish in nature, involving a real dinosaur in the Congo one time and factual evidence of Bigfoot (or more likely an alien) the next, but this escapade tops even those past exploits for strangeness. Three For The Money takes place after the turn of the century when the Williard brothers of Vietnam war fame are beginning to show their age, but aren't ready to slow down yet. They are headed into their wildest adventure yet, involving a treasure worth far more than their inherited billions even if they can collect the money, which becomes increasingly doubtful, because others want it, too. Their attempt to find the money and the baffling object that may be the real prize will set the stage for their antics to last for many, many years to come. Of course first they have to defeat the mysterious Mister H and his beautiful assistant, the CIA, the FBI, and the Mexican army, then find the money, collect the unknown prize and escape with their lives. That's a tall order for anyone--except the Williard brothers, the most amazing trio to appear in fiction since The Three Musketeers!

Temporarily unavailable. Will be available again soon.
 

Space For Sale    

Space for Sale
Adventure.

The zany, politically incorrect Williard brothers are back, and this time they're shooting for Mars, trying to spend the billions of dollars inherited from the Mafia Godfather. But there's a financially and politically powerful organization that's been seriously hampering manned space flight for more than two generations, backed by shadowy beings who may not have originated on Earth at all. So far they've kept manned space flight from progressing very fast or far, but they've never confronted the Williard brothers either. Along with their girlfriends, the Williards intend to go to Mars or die trying--a distinct possibility!

Temporarily unavailable. Will be available again soon.

Hotline to Heaven    

Hotline to Heaven. Romantic comedy. Darrell considers Hotline to Heaven one of his best books, and quite different from anything else he's ever done. Humor, chicanery, sex, betrayal and romance, along with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end. It has such a fun plot that it will even have you wondering who you should be cheering for, the rascally villain Ed Tanner, or the innocent young Violet.
