Welcome to my website and to the people and worlds that have sprung to life in my imagination. I hope you enjoy or will come to enjoy meeting all of them.
The novels of the Star Commandos series form the core of my work to date. Each tale can be read independently, but together, they form an ongoing story of high adventure and strong characters bound to one another in ever-deepening relationships as they work together to build their own future and their ultrasystem's. All will be carefully revised and edited and will be made available by MuseItUp Publishing in electronic format. STAR COMMANDOS, the first book; COLONY IN PERIL, book 2; MISSION UNDERGROUND, book 3; DEATH PLANET, book 4, MIND SLAVER, book 5, RETURN TO WAR, book 6, FIRE PLANET, book 7, JUNGLE ASSAULT, book 8, and CALL TO ARMS, book 9, have already been released in electronic format by MuseItUp Publishing.
THE BASTET TRILOGY, an anthology detailing the stories of three heroic cats and their human Partners, has been released in electronic format by Musa Publishing.
The TROUBLE THE CAT anthology and THE GIFT OF MAGIC, a fantasy novel featuring Trouble and his associates, have been released in electronic format by Musa Publishing.
LIGHT IN THE FACE OF DARK, an anthology containing three short stories set in universes created by s-f/fantasy great Andre Norton, has been released in electronic format by Musa Publications.
Besides writing in my own universes, I have enjoyed the great privilege of being invited to work in three created by Andre Norton, the Grand Dame of Science Fiction. There is a tale in each of her two-novel Witch World volumes STORMS OF VICTORY and FLIGHT OF VENGEANCE. In addition, FIREHAND is a continuation of her Time Traders series and REDLINE THE STARS of the Solar Queen series.

CALL TO ARMS, Book 9 Star Commandos.
Sogan, still writhing under the shame of his role in what he considers the Amazoonan atrocity and hungering for vengeance against the mastermind of the arms robbery, welcomes Connor's announcement that the man has been discovered - until he learns their quarry is located not only on her and Karmikel's homeworld, but on a farm adjacent to her family's home. They accept the challenging mission, but their investigation proves time consuming, frustrating, and increasingly perilous as several assassination attempts are made against them. Of greater peril still are the planet's fearsome storms, which threaten the entire unit with annihilation. Above all is the nagging fear that even if they get the needed evidence, they may well be unable to profit by it. Their on-world opponents are a large company heavily armed and well able to use their weapons. Their enemies in space control a big, deadly fleet. Failure against either party guarantees untold suffering and death for the people of the peaceful agrarian world, yet how can four Commandos and their surplanetary allies hope to thwart such powerful foes?

“I appreciate very much having had the chance to read Pauline Griffin’s STAR COMMANDOS. This is excellent s-f adventure, but it also contains depth in its characters and awakens in the reader a constant desire to know more of them and a concern for them. I consider this one of the best stories of its type that I have read for some time. And I hope to meet the two protagonists again in some future story. This is s-f adventure at its brightest and best.”
