Veronica Phoenix

No longer answering to the Galactic leaders, Strategic Aerospace Command (SACOM) has evolved into an independent, powerful de facto government themselves. Disregarding civil law, they make and enforce their regulations using security forces and military tribunals.

Against his better judgment, Carl Wilkins accepts a salvage contract that promises to make him rich. Aboard the salvage vessel Independence, he and his crew depart to retrieve valuable materials from three SACOM battle cruisers recently abandoned in deep space after their destruction by the Xetians, a hostile alien race.

But just days into the mission, a mishap leaves one team contaminated with lethal radioactive debris. As the crew struggles to get their stricken friends aboard the Independence, the Xetians return, and Carl must act quickly to save his crew.

Soon he learns that this misfortune was no accident. Someone in SACOM set him up to fail, but why? His only hope of survival is to allow himself to be drawn into a massive conspiracy against SACOM. Piloting the Phoenix, a specially converted space freighter, Carl embarks on a perilous solo mission to prevent SACOM from building a super-weapon capable of destroying an entire star system.

Veronica Phoenix will take you on a suspenseful and action-packed journey across the galaxy as Carl Wilkins fights to stop SACOM and to rebuild his shattered life.

Search for the Phoenix

Fighting to remain one step ahead of SACOM, Nolan Peters and Megan Carson investigate the mysterious disappearance of their friend, Carl Wilkins. During the investigation, Nolan struggles with his growing affection for Megan, while she tries to cope with the recent death of her husband. Will the strain bring them together, or drive them apart?

When the pair uncovers evidence of a treasonous conspiracy that threatens the stability of all human worlds across the galaxy, they reluctantly put their trust in a SACOM investigator and a hard-nosed Army general to root out the conspirators. Will their trust prove to be their undoing… or prevent a galactic-scale military coup?

Made in the Stars

Mankind has spread to dozens of worlds throughout the universe, and traveling to another world is as simple as stepping through a wormhole or walking onto a Starliner to travel through hyperspace. Finding true love across the vastness of space has been relegated to mathematical algorithms and supercomputers.

There’s something of the film noire detective movies in Proctor’s writing. This is Proctor’s best work to date, and I highly recommend it.

D.H. St. Martin

This second book in the Phoenix series is filled with intrigue and suspense. This is great science fiction and drama and I highly recommend this book.

G. Stillman

I wondered if the second book could equal the first. New characters were introduced to the narrative and the author tied it all together seamlessly. Looking forward to reading more from this creative writer.

Bill Muckler

I couldn’t stop reading the story. I had to follow the adventure to see what what’s going to happen next. I really enjoyed reading this story and hope to read more stories written be Jim Proctor.

I am a huge fan of science fiction and an even greater fan of short stories. The two come together in this wonderfully spun tale, “Made in the Stars” by Jim Proctor.

S.A. Molteni

I loved the science fiction aspect, going through different portals, wondering what that would be like! this was a different genre for me, and I am so glad I read it!

Christine Dupre

If you’ve ever read Jim Proctors other novels, you know he has a huge talent in showing us the advanced technology of these other futuristic civilizations. In Made in the Stars, I especially loved the wormholes the people use to get from planet to planet.

Amazon Customer

The author took us for a wonderful ride through the Sci/Fi world, weaving together a story of finding love where we least expect it. Made in the Stars has made me a fan of this author and his writing style.
