In the first book of the Family Law series, Lee's parents and their business partner Gordon found a class A habitable planet. They thought their quest as explorers was over and they'd live a life of ease. But before they could return and register their claim Lee's parents died doing a survey of the surface. That left Lee two-thirds owner of the claim and their partner Gordon obligated by his word with her parents to raise Lee. She had grown up aboard ship with her uncle Gordon and he was the only family she'd ever known. Him adopting her was an obvious arrangement—to them. Other people didn't see it so clearly over the picky little fact Gordon wasn't human. After finding prejudice and hostility on several worlds Lee was of the opinion planets might be nice to visit, but terrible places to live. She wanted back in space exploring. Fortunately Gordon was agreeable and the income from their discovery made outfitting an expedition possible. Lee wanted to go deep—out where it was entirely unknown and the potential prizes huge. After all, if they kept exploring tentatively they might run up against the border of some bold star faring race who had gobbled up all the best real estate. It wasn't hard to find others of a like mind for a really long voyage.

Author Bio: Mackey Chandler

Mackey Chandler is retired to Rochester Michigan from a working life that spanned a large number of occupations. Mold maker, aerospace machinist, plumber, mechanic, and dozen more as well as owning several businesses. This life experience and travel show in the depth and variety of his writing. A life long reader of Science Fiction, the authors at Baen’s Bar and their evening chat room motivated him to try his own hand at writing. His first effort was a short story titled Common Ground which sold to the short-lived Jim Baen’s Universe. That is now the lead story in a collection of shorts. Paper or Plastic was his first Kindle book. Two series have been added starting with April and the second series starting with Family Law.
