 NOTE: Book 1 of the series, Twin-Bred, is free on Amazon and elsewhere! Starting there strongly recommended. “[Twin-Bred is] one of the best science fiction novels I've read in decades. . . .[O]riginal . . . beautifully written and riveting. The complex, flawlessly structured, plot evolves logically, but continues to surprise to the very end.” – author R. Lee Holz 

“This well-written story crept into my mind and will stay there.” – author Julie Elizabeth Powell 

"Now and then I read a really good book, and this is one of the best. . . . I would love a sequel to this beautifully written, captivating novel." -- author Ellen Ghyll 

A truly enjoyably scientific science-fiction story." -- author Sheila Deeth 

Scientist Mara Cadell created the Twin-Bred -- pairs of fraternal twins, one human and one Tofa -- to bridge the profound and dangerous gap between the human colonists on Tofarn and the indigenous Tofa. Unexpectedly, it is the Tofa host mothers who now claim the capacity to bring peace between the two. The Twin-Bred themselves have been forced to abandon their mission and their planet, in the hope of finding a less hostile home. Only one pair remain behind, seeking to build new and separate lives with their own kind. 

But Mara and the Twin-Bred should know by now that plans provide little protection. New challenges are in store for all the Twin-Bred, and for those whose lives they touch.

About the author

 Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers herself a Hoosier. Wyle's childhood ambition was to be the youngest ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to the goal at age 9. 

Wyle is an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters. Her voice is the product of almost five decades of reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also influenced, although she hopes not fatally tainted, by her years of law practice. Her personal history has led her to focus on often-intertwined themes of family, communication, the impossibility of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.
