Hello, intrepid reader! We are James Gaines and John Gaines, a father/son team of sci-fi writers who are currently publishing the Forlani Saga, a series of three novels (for now!) about a future filled with space travel, human/alien interactions, megacorporations, and bizarre alien worlds.
Our first novel, Life Sentence, has been completed, and you can buy it here! We will be publishing the sequel, Spy Station, later on this year.
We will be updating this page as we finish up work on Spy Station and begin the process of early work on our third novel. As we complete our novels, enjoy info on our progress and goals for the future!
