9780997073119: The Fire Within (Kell of the Deep Space Corps) (Volume 1)

23-yr-old Kell Stark’s dream is to captain a ship of the Deep Space Corps, but the Corps hides alien threats — until her cybernetics genius leads to catching Skirrl dragonlords circling Sol System like vultures. If they are not stopped, the Skirrl will mentally enslave the human race. Kell believes she was genetically enhanced in the womb, but she can’t get her powerful family to admit it. Shifting sexual preferences don’t worry her, but she’s often angry and changeable, almost two different people. Vicious telepathic assaults bring her inner conflicts to a head, with shocking results. Aided by a young woman of the Corps and a bionic commando with PTSD and a shadowy past, Kell must save herself and the human race the only way she can — starting with mastering her own mind. She has a fire in her belly; she will not yield.

About the Author:

Bobby hails from Snyder, Texas, which everyone agrees is "smack dab in the middle of nowhere", but a great place to grow up. It was an oil boom town in those days, but today it's a wind-farm boom town. Ah, progress! His science fiction is influenced by E. E. (Doc) Smith's Lensman series, Clifford D. Simak's "Time is the Simplest Thing", Tanith Lee's "Birthgrave", Robert Silverberg's "To Live Again", Roger Zelazny's "This Immortal" and "Lord of Light", Isaac Asimov's "The Gods Themselves", and Gordon R. Dickson's Dorsai/Childe series. He retired from the US Air Force and along the way earned a B.S. in Math at Texas Tech in Lubbock; an M.S. in Operations Research at AFIT in Dayton, Ohio; and a Ph.D. in Management Science & Information Systems at U.T. Austin. He was named Volunteer of the Year at the Austin Rape Crisis Center in 1988. His wife, Elizabeth Slaughter, is his best beta reader and sounding board by far. http://www.deepspacecorps.com
