About Carol Van Natta, Science Fiction & Fantasy Author
Since you’re actually reading this page, you may want to know something about me.
In my career, I’ve been a swing-shift guard, secretary, emergency medical technician, actor, voiceover talent, film production coordinator, corporate trainer, singing telegram performer, technical writer, non-profit director, business continuity specialist, and of course, an author. I still do some of those things so I can eat regularly and sleep indoors. I share my Fort Collins, Colorado home with a mad scientist and various cats. Any violations of the laws of physics in my books are the fault of the cats, not the mad scientist.
Overload Flux, Minder Rising, Zero Flux, Pico's Crush, and Jumper's Hope are the first five books in the Central Galactic Concordance space opera-action-romance series, and three of them Overload Flux, Minder Rising and Jumper's Hope) have won SFR Galaxy Awards. Last Ship Off Polaris-G is a series prequel, and Pet Trade is a standalone novella that originally appeared in the USA TODAY bestselling Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 anthology. In Graves Below is a standalone paranormal romance in S.E. Smith's “Magic, New Mexico” Kindle Worlds universe. If you’d like to read something completely different, look for Hooray for Holopticon, a retro science fiction comedy, co-written with Ann Harbour. Trust me, it’s nothing like the Central Galactic Concordance series, but it’s a fine, silly romp. All my books are available from most major e-book retailers, and most are available in print.
I'm also a playwright, screen writer, and radio script writer, with scripts on such subjects as bank robbery, assassination, aging, demons, funeral homes, and bootleggers.
