Set in the far-future when dogs rule the Earth and otters dance through the skies in their spaceships, the Otters In Space trilogy combines the sometimes whimsical, sometimes deadly serious interspecies politics of talking animals with a spirit of pioneering, space adventure and hard science-fiction.  (Imagine Star Wars crossed with Zootopia.)

In addition to the core trilogy, there's also a coming-of-age/light romance spin-off (In a Dog's World) and mystery spin-off (Jove Deadly's Lunar Detective Agency).  Nexus Nine and the upcoming Tri-Galactic Trek are an extra-layer of fiction deep -- set inside a fictional universe within the Otters In Space universe.

The Snake's Song is a stand-alone fantasy adventure featuring a squirrel.
