About Alien Resistance
In a bleak future where government systems are breaking down and poverty and violence reigns, Madison Johnson is about to qualify as a doctor, after years of study and backbreaking work, in order to keep the promise she made to her dying sister, only to have an arrogant alien take over the hospital and decree that she would no longer be allowed to practice medicine.

Excerpt from Alien Resistance
The next day she trudged to Jacobson’s office and he didn’t make his usual snide remarks, just put some books in a box and told her to go straight through to the alien’s office.
Dragging her feet, she walked up to that silver door. He wouldn’t grab her again, and, if he did, she’d just cock her knee again and he’d drop her. The problem with that was, she’d thought about it the whole night and the only conclusion she could come to was that he dropped her because he was scared she’d hurt herself if she kneed him.
Before she could knock, the door slid open.
“Come in, human, you need not fear your conqueror.”
Madison stormed inside. “That is not funny.”
He cocked his head. “I did not say that to be funny. I merely tell the truth.”
So help her, if she didn’t kill him with his own sword, it’d be a miracle. “You know what I want, don’t think I’ll stop coming to bug you about it. No matter what you do to me I’ll come back.” He had no idea how stubborn she could be.
He didn’t move and she was relieved to see he didn’t go for his sword. “I have decided to allow you to work as a doctor.”
Elation surged through her blood until she felt punch drunk. “Really, you won’t be sorry. I’ll—”
He held up a hand. “I have conditions.”
Her shoulders slumped. “Of course you have conditions.” Why would he simply allow her to continue with her duties, when he could make her miserable with all kinds of impossible conditions? “So what are these conditions?”
“You will work as a doctor, but you will also do your painting work. If you work less than eight hours a day as doctor, I will take away the privilege.”
She glared at him. She worked between ten and fourteen hours on painting and moving the smaller equipment from offices to be changed or painted. Another eight on top of that would mean she barely got to sleep. “You think I can’t do it. Well, I’ll show you. I’m an Alabama girl, no miserable alien will stop me from doing my life’s work.”
Oops, she didn’t mean to call him a miserable alien. Better get out of reach of those quick arms of his.
He didn’t react to her insult. “Leave, human.”
She stormed out and went back to painting, too angry to talk to anyone. He was setting her up to fail. She knew that was what he was doing, but she’d show him. She could work much harder than he could ever dream of.
