Mary Brock Jones http://www.marybrockjones.com/ Welcome to my worlds. I write science fiction and New Zealand-set historical romance novels, tales of adventure in the far off days of the gold rushes. A time when dreams reigned supreme. and the only costs of victory were hardship and hope. My romances always end happily, even if the journey can get quite bumpy. As for my science fiction: they may or may not have a romantic element, and the ending is what it is. Some are dark, some not so dark. Some short, some long; some with a happy ending, others definitely not. For the future is another world, infinitely variable, and so is the imagination. When anything is possible, darkness or light come as they may. No
