But on the other hand what about
(continued from a previous post)

Let’s not forget that for several years the History Channel has aired the extremely popular show, Ancient Aliens. Investigators circle the globe in search of evidence in their quest to determine whether life on Earth began in outer space and if aliens influenced mankind in ancient times. 

Did extraterrestrial beings visit Earth and share information about technology and influence human religions? And more importantly, if aliens visited the planet before, will they return? Or could they still be secretly among us? Alien theorists believe that the answer to these questions is a resounding yes.

Personally I love a good alien tale. In several of my Science Fiction Romance stories, cultures are advanced enough to travel across the galaxies at FTL. Yet they aren't out to steal a planet’s resources, or overtake any worlds. 

In my SFR books the aliens are on missions of exploration, finding new cultures that are ready for deep space travel, and mentoring them into the FTL space age. They only take a look at the ones that are actually on the cusp of deep space travel.

And so in one of my SFR stories {Forbidden Love} which is out of publication date and no longer available at this time, goes something like this: 

When an alien from an advanced culture ventures upon an Earth-like planet, his scanners tell him he has found a primitive warring culture that will not accept a peaceful alien encounter. His species is from an alliance of planets who believe in letting cultures develop on their own. So he can’t hit the orbital controls quick enough to leave. But something happens and his ship malfunctions so he crashes into the surface.
And so it goes... 

Good fodder for a SFR story, but that is just what this is, a story.

In the Soul-Love Series there are aspects of futuristic technology hidden beneath the surface of the story themes. Though Remember Him Yesterday and the second novel, Barefoot Dancer are more about the love between soulmates.

Another story has a soulful space pilot who goes on a long reaching mission to find the woman he has loved from afar. Against the judgment and advice of the Council of Planets, he is determined to find the woman of his fitful dreams.

The idea of alien contact is fascinating for sure. Least that's how I feel and why I enjoy writing these types of stories. 

Stay tuned for more on the Soul-Love Series, and the release of other sci-fi books as well.
