The Storm is here and Stormy the Weather Gnome has got you covered!

Mr. Alex, what can I say? You're a really good sport.

On that note....here is Stormy the Weather Gnome.


It's me, Stormy the Weather Gnome coming to you from my porch with a weather related update!

It's nice out here.

Back to you in the studio.

Wait, what is that? What's that dark cloud on the horizon? Did the wind just pick up?

There's a storm coming.

I can feel it.

It's big.

I asked Mr. Alex one simple, mind-altering, universe-changing, end-life-as-we-know-it question.

When your books become movies would you consider casting a gnome for a lead part?

And, like the good man that he is...he responded.
Stormy, you might be just a bit too short to play Byron. You’re probably closer to Bassan’s size. You might need to shave though. And get a tan. How well can you read minds?

I knew he was going to say that.

By Alex J Cavanaugh

From the Amazon Best Selling Series!

A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could return. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

“With a talent for worldbuilding and a compelling cast of characters, Alex J. Cavanaugh combines high powered space battles and the challenges of family dynamics to provide readers a space opera with heart.”
- Elizabeth S. Craig, author of the Southern Quilting and Myrtle Clover mysteries

“I thought the revelation was going to be one thing and I was completely wrong … CassaStorm pushes the limits…”
