Synopsis: Commander Sayuri Arai has what she's always wanted...at least, that's what she keeps telling herself to fend off despair. In just the last few days, she's purchased the antiquated Independent Mining Ship Red Lotus, invested in major repairs and upgrades, and taken on the role of its co-commander alongside trusted right hand man Dravin Sow.
Now, Sayuri finds herself at wit's end. Her veteran crew of "Spacers" seems to take pleasure in citing her inexperience and odd "Grounder" ways while they correct, contradict, or dismiss her every order. Even Sayuri's attempts to socialize with her new subordinates are rebuffed. But when space pirates attack and board the vessel, Sayuri and her crew must learn to work together if they're going to survive.
Red Lotus: Innocence Lost is the second of a series of science fiction novelettes that began with Fate of the Red Lotus--re-igniting a classic sense of wonder for today's readers.
R.J. resides with his family in Heartland Crossing, Indiana. He drinks regularly from a Little Mermaid coffee mug and is man enough to admit it. Visit www.rjsullivanfiction.com to learn the latest about the projects of R. J. Sullivan.
