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, CALL TO ARMS, book 9, and WATCHDOGS OF SPACE, book 10, 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.

WATCHDOGS OF SPACE, Book 10, Star Commandos.
The Commandos team up with Navy Chief Admiral Gray Jack Dundee on a mission to eliminate raiders from the aptly named Pirate Stars. Sogan assumes command of Dundee's battleship to fight one of the most challenging duels of his life against a Pirate Stars opponent. If successful, the unit must depart for what is likely to prove a suicidal assault on the heavily armed renegade base supporting the enemy battlecraft.
Even as they struggle in space, a new threat has developed at home. The fact that Sogan survived his execution has at last been discovered by his former associates. Four of them are on-world, and they question what to do about him, whether to ignore or eliminate him, while the Emperor himself conceives a very different plan for his disgraced former admiral.

“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.”
