Welcome to the universe of Galactic Dreams, where fairy tales are reimagined for a new age—the future.

In each Galactic Dreams novella you’ll find an old tale reborn with a mixture of romance, technology, aliens and adventure. But beware, a perilous quest awaits behind every star and getting home again will depend on a good spaceship, true love, and maybe just a hint of magic. Galactic Dreams is a unique series of science-fiction novellas from Blue Zephyr Press featuring retellings of classic tales from different authors, all sharing the same universe, technology, and history.

Aurora One is a new spin on the classic Sleeping Beauty story: Princess Chavri Aisling is on a space mission to help her people find the other lost colonies of Earth when a terrifying discovery leaves her frozen. Resuscitated by the least-likely prince over three generations later, Chavri has one chance to save what’s left of her province from invasion, and the love of her life from a fate worse than death.

Frustration and Counting Your Spoons

I have had a very frustrating week, followed by a frustrating weekend. I suppose part of this is the nature of the holiday season — too many things squeezed into too little a space of time.

I am new again, raw, an amateur who is just barely beginning […]

About the Author

Jennae-tempheadshot400x500

J.M. Phillippe spent the early part of her life in the deserts of Santa Clarita, California where she learned about fire season and idolized She-Ra; her adolescent/young adult years in the ever-green Seattle suburbs where she gained an appreciation for walking in the rain and earned a degree in Journalism and Creative Writing; and her early twenties in Los Angeles where she tried to make a go of it as a freelance writer and thus learned a great deal about being an administrative assistant before ending up in public relations. Then she did the most LA thing she could think of — she moved across the country to go to graduate school in New York City. She has settled in Brooklyn, New York and became a licensed clinical social worker. She spends her free-time binge-watching quality TV, drinking cider with her amazing friends, and learning the art of radical self-acceptance, one day at a time.
