The Fierce Girls At War Series
‘The Fierce Girls At War series features a majority cast of smart, capable, competent and confident women around whom most of the events and actions are centered. Many but not all are in positions of authority, and some are related to others by ties of blood, marriage or trial by fire. Many have ties to the leading male protagonist Commander Rick (O'Brien) Cassidy, to whom he is either son, brother, father or friend but he is by no means The Main Character nor is he involved in all of the events which occur. These women are warriors, leaders, students and most importantly equals if not superiors to the males they have to deal with. Key characters among them are members of three generations in the extended Cassidy/O'Brien clan.
Set just over one hundred years in the future when many of today's problems still exist, new problems have developed and new technologies have created both new challenges and new opportunities. Earth has reached out to the stars and is developing its first colony on another world and an international coalition of countries and corporations are sharing the cost of developing it.
