The Sunrisers

by Robyn Singer


GENRE:   Lesbian Space Opera



After years of adventures, professional thief and amateur noodle critic Yael is invited to join The Order of the Banshee, a collection of the greatest female thieves in the universe, despite being decades younger than any of them.

Yael’s childhood best friend, Molina, has lived the opposite life: a stern and serious member of The Sunrisers, the universe’s premiere peacekeeping organization, she’s just been promoted to Captain, serving under her father. Her first assignment of her new command: Bring down The Order of the Banshee.

Yael and Molina now find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict neither of them will escape unscathed. The love they have for each other is the same as when they were young, but either their personal values or their love will break.

In this game of cat and mouse, both women must use all their wits and tricks to stay ahead of their new enemy. Will order triumph, or will chaos? No matter what, Yael and Molina will both lose.



“I'm so glad you came. This should, uh, be a lot more comfortable than talking over a holo-call or while I'm trying to avoid getting killed and you're trying to arrest people.”

The cadence of her voice and the way she spoke were identical to how she'd talked when we were younger. I believed that I'd grown and changed for the better in that area over the past decade, but this was one area where Yael hadn't changed at all. If I was going to get Yael to do what I wanted, I needed her to trust me. And more importantly, I wanted her to trust me.

Only a little afraid, I opened my arms up for a hug. “Try not to crush me this time, please.”

Her eyes slightly watering, Yael tightly, but not too tightly, wrapped her arms around me. In turn, I put mine around her. When we'd hugged on Milash's moon, I'd been too caught up in the moment to fully appreciate it. Now though, being in her arms again, feeling safe and protected, a single thought overtook my mind. Or rather, a single desire.

“Do you think we hug too much?” I'd once asked when we were 13.

“I mean, if you're getting tired of hugging, we could always try kissing,” Yael had replied.

I'd blushed and tugged at my long hair. “Are you...are you being serious?”

She'd narrowed her eyes. “Am I?”



Falling in Love with the Main Characters

The Sunrisers features two POV characters, along with three other characters who I’d say comprise the main cast. The POV characters are named Yael Pavnick and Molina Langstone, while the others are named Aarif Bhatti, P’Ken Aamtyn, and Princess Kaybell Kose Bythora.

These five characters are all radically different, and are all the products of completely different circumstances. As such, getting the audience to empathize with and love each of them required a different tactic.

The central protagonist, Yael, is the easiest sell to the reader. She’s a scatterbrained, genius, goofball thief who proudly wears her Autism and ADHD on her sleeve, and being inside her head is unlike any other reading experience. I put a lot of myself into Yael, primarily when it came to her disabilities, and she’s everything I, as a child especially, would have liked to see in a hero. With her witty humor, comedic antics, and her being completely unique among sci-fi protagonists, I think everyone will come out of chapter one already invested in her.

The other protagonist, Molina, was a much greater challenge. She’s a stern and serious soldier who’s out to capture and arrest Yael, who the reader meets first, which all serves to make her not as instantly lovable. The keys to making the reader appreciate Molina was to dig into her psyche and really figure out who she is and why she’s this way, and to prominently showcase her relationship with Yael. Yes, she’s a hardass military woman, but she’s also an Autistic dork with a passion for swords and swordplay. And yes, she wants to capture Yael, but that’s only because she’s in love with her, the two having been childhood best friends, and she believes that she’s the only one who can save her from herself.

Aarif is Yael’s engineer, best friend, and confidante. His role is to primarily serve as the straight man to Yael’s antics, but, knowing that if I left him there, no one would care about him, I gave him a bond with his dog, Juri, pets are always a classic way to instantly make readers empathize with a character, I dedicated an entire chapter to his backstory, so that even though he isn’t the focus in the present, readers still know what’s driving him, and I gave him multiple moments to shine with his mechanical expertise; readers are drawn to competence.

P’Ken’s story is classic. The sheltered girl trapped in an unsatisfying life who longs for more. It’s worked for Disney for decades, and with the twist here being that the “more” P’Ken wants is to be a thief like Yael, I think readers will love this shy and awkward little thing.

Finally, put simply, Kaybell is for the readers who love their deliciously evil, yet still understandable, villains. She does terrible things, but I make clear why she’s doing them, she’s funny, and her affection for Molina is entirely genuine.



Robyn Singer is a lifelong New Yorker, and since she was a kid playing with her action figures, all she’s wanted to do is tell stories. She went to SUNY Purchase to get a degree in Playwriting & Screenwriting with a minor in Film and has produced several comic books, but she’s always had her eye on becoming a published novelist.

As an Autistic, bisexual trans woman, diversity and inclusion in stories are vitally important to her, and she seeks to represent as many groups as possible in her work. While she wants to show characters of marginalized groups experiencing joy, she also draws inspiration from real-world problems which bother her.

The Sunrisers (Cinnabar Moth Publishing, November 2022) is her debut novel. She writes novels and short stories of all genres and for all ages, and she continues to produce comic books. Her ongoing series, Final Gamble, will begin publication by Band of Bards in 2022.
