I’m A. K. Frailey, a published author of 15 books. The majority are historical sci-fi where people of ancient times struggle to find meaning in a world dominated by evil choices. While managing their own conflicts, aliens fight for their place in human events. Movie director and producer Cary Solomon endorsed me with the summary, “Ann’s work ranks among the best.” I’ve been writing for over a decade and host podcasts of my short stories and life reflections. Since I was widowed 7 years ago, I have raised my 8 kids and discovered that epic trials forge epic heroes. Find my work on my Amazon Author Page


My friend and writer/publisher, Ellen Gable Hrkach, and her husband, James, have been working hard designing the interior and the cover for my newest book, Homestead.

Melchior FRONT Cover


Newest review from IndieReader “Part murder mystery, part family drama, part science-fiction epic, OLDEARTH MELCHIOR ENCOUNTER addresses themes of the line between good and evil and what makes a family…the overarching plot with the aliens ties everything together to make a cohesive, epic novel…The dialogue performs at its best when it is punchy and expressive, such as when Melchior faces his son Wilfred…”


Review from Reedsy/Discovery OldEarth Melchior integrates historical and science fiction in unique and intriguing ways…With its combination of genre and its swath of characters in both plots, OldEarth Melchior features many of the best aspects of both historical and science fiction.”

Book Life/Publishers Weekly for OldEarth Aram Encounter
“Tense encounters, crisp action, failures of leadership, and dramatic surprises power the story’s main thrust…creates compelling characters in each of the human factions…”
Online Book Club.OldEarth Aram Encounter A book that you’ll read and not forget in a hurry. It is the first of a series of five novels. The history is fascinating, the characters are uniquely intriguing, the plot is very rich, and the events are fascinating..She does an excellent job of taking us into the mind of the characters. I find no fault with the writing and editing; everything is perfect. Therefore, I rate it 4 out of 4 stars.”
