Kayelle Allen and Misbehaving Robots

My homeworld: Misbehaving Robots, Immortal Gamers, and Warriors Who Purr

Welcome. I’m Science Fiction author Kayelle Allen. I did a tour in the US Navy, where I climbed around airplanes fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home. I wrote my first novel at 18 but to this day, it’s hidden under my bed, where (trust me) it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in my galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, I was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from my mother. From my father, I got a healthy respect for mechanical things. Small wonder I write Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr.

I’m a member of RomVets, a group of military and former military women who write romance. In 2014, I was awarded an honorary lifetime membership to the OutlantaCon Science Fiction Convention for support of the convention since its debut. I founded Marketing for Romance Writers (more about them below), and today it has over 7k members. I also lead a writer’s group in my community. Now that I’m retired, I stay busier than ever. I’ve been married so long I’m tenured.

I am a graphic artist as a hobby. Most of the art and banners on this site and in my social media were created by me, including my logo. I have a great design team that I also work with, commissioning special pieces. Check out their pages. Jamin (Volgraza) and Livius (Nano-Core) have huge amounts of talent. I am also privileged to work with a cosplayer who portrays my immortal king, Pietas. Take a moment to check out Nik Nitsvetov’s amazing work.

To bring attention to other sci fi, fantasy, space opera, and sci fi romance authors, I share their work with my readers, especially on Twitter. Check out my Sci Fi list there. I also offer members of my reader group an exclusive list of authors, with all their social media, website, and genre information included. Sign up for that here.

Meet My Heroes
Kayelle Allen's Unstoppable Heroes #SciFi #SpaceOpera #Romance

Original art by Jamin Allen) L to R: The immortal Pietas rules as king of the Sempervians. He considers Six his finest friend – even though he’s human and therefore mortal. Wulf, Alitus and Jawk — the Chosen who support the Sempervians — follow. Pietas calls Luc his right hand. Surrender Love and Surrender Trust, a sweet scifi series coming soon, will feature Luc and Izzorah. Senth and Khyff are half-brothers. Senth is Luc’s adopted son. Everyone shown has a relationship to Luc, and even if they are not aware of it, to Pietas.

What I write

My Science Fiction books are set in the distant future, and involve a race of genetically enhanced, immortal beings. The humans and non-humans they manipulate are a strong part of the storyline. The stories are about more than what they seem on the surface. Here is a list of concepts and themes within my books:
• genetics
• transhumans
• non-humans
• immortality
• forgotten or lost technologies
• sentience
• diverse and unconventional families
• interspecies and multicultural relationships
• role-playing games
• conspiracies
• war
• duty
• honor
• respect
• love
• humor

Wanna review a #SciFi on BookSprout? @booksproutapp Check out Bro, a quick #read by Kayelle Allen #MFRWhooks #MFRWauthor

Wanna review a #SciFi on @booksproutapp? Check out Bro, a #SciFi short by Kayelle Allen #MFRWhooks


Will you please review Bro?

The prequel to the Antonello Brothers sci fi romance series is SF and Fantasy for adults, teens, and YA.

The brothers would love for you to read the story of how two brothers who weren't raised together finally met.

Now on BookSprout

Wanna Review Bro?

The driver Saint-Cyr had sent for him led Khyff to a shiny black hoversine the length of a ruckball field. "Mr. Saint-Cyr thought you might appreciate coffee, sir." The android opened the door. "There's a fresh pot, plus cream and sweetener in the center console. The mugs are spill proof."

"Thank you." After Khyff slid inside, the door shut.

Sounds of the city cut off, and the plush seat cradled him. He didn't realize the car was moving until the scenery changed outside.

He touched nothing. He dared not relax. Not until this was over. Khyff drew in a shallow breath. No. Nothing was over until his brother paid what he owed.

The coffee smelled like the real thing, but who knew what might be in it? Locked inside a hoversine, drugged and helpless, and not expected back for a full day, Khyff could be taken anywhere and anything done to him, with no one the wiser.

No, he would sit here with his hands folded in his lap, and not move. If anyone tried anything, at least he'd have his wits about him.

The endless drive up and down streets soon had him lost. He'd been nowhere in this city, but he'd been in fancy cars like this back on Tarth. There, anytime anyone sent for him in one of these, he'd come back exhausted or flogged. Or both.

Rich people treated him worse than poor people, every time.

Saint-Cyr was rich. What if Saint-Cyr met with him instead of Senth? What if Saint-Cyr found the knife? What if he reported him? Any one of those things could land Khyff back in prison.

The Harbinger had a well-won reputation for ruthlessness. Each person Khyff had talked to had told him different things, but they all had one piece of advice in common when it came to Luc Saint-Cyr.

Don't screw with the Man.
