Misty White writes space opera when she isn’t acting under one of her other identities or playing fetch with her cat. Many of her short stories are in the sweet romance arena, as in her story Buzz and Bunnies or her mini-series starting with Catati Test. She also writes dystopia (Cara Lee), dark fantasy for adults (Carralee Byrd), and lighter-but-still-gritty fantasy for YA+ (Misti Wolanski).
When Canni’s friend Leever bribes her into playing arm candy for dinner, she expects that he’s trying to dissuade some wannabe girlfriend, again. He thinks that Canni’s just a slightly-odd Earthling who doesn’t realize one or more of her ancestors were from another planet (such as, perhaps, his). They’re both wrong.
