In less than three weeks, Simon & Schuster will publish my latest novel, Sacraments of Fire. The book picks up the ongoing Deep Space Nine saga directly after my last Star Trek work, Revelation and Dust, and it continues on through the time period of the four-book The Fall series, and beyond. I weave plot threads involving Ro Laren, Kira Nerys, Odo, and Ben Sisko, and readers will experience the long-awaited reappearance of the Ascendants. I'm eager for Sacraments of Fire to make it into the hands of Deep Space Nine fans.
