Overview

By uncovering a veritable fountain of youth a doctor comes to learn the extraordinary price of immortality. Despite solving the riddle to everlasting life, she watches in horror as the human race nearly goes extinct overnight.

The few survivors, a motley band of misfits, are now bound in servitude to an older and superior race if they wish to continue living. Those who were once deadly enemies become trusted allies while friends and lovers turn upon one another.

As the old world fades away a new one rises, one in which death has no meaning, where institutions such as marriage and fidelity vanish, a place where murder and mayhem become acceptable behavior, and betrayal is the norm.

To what lengths would you go to stay forever young?

Meet the Author

In the late 1990s I was honored to work with Robert M. Pirsig (author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values, and Lila: An Inquiry into Morals)which resulted in my first book called Lila's Child: An Inquiry into Quality, available in both print and as an e-file. Mr. Pirsig shares many insights into his Metaphysics of Quality, which allows for a deeper and more expanded way of understanding reality.

These days I write literary fiction rather than non-fiction, including the Gathering of Lovers series as well as the Mermaid series. I also have several collections of short stories and anthologies that revolve around Zen Buddhism and Eastern teachings as seen through the eyes of Western culture.
