As a contract engineer Cali has traveled the world and lived in places she can’t pronounce the name of correctly, even if she could speak any language other than English. Machines are easy for her to understand. They don’t lie, they don’t deceive, and they never beat you to show you how much they love you. Her trust and loyalty only ever belonged to her cousin and business partner, until they accepted a contract in Tokyo. Until Ren, she was content living a mobile life.
Mia enjoyed flitting from city to city like a charming butterfly. Being business partners with her cousin allowed her to live an international life. It provided the opportunity for her to indulge in her innermost pleasure, regional cuisine. After her last long-term boyfriend landed her in the hospital with a broken leg, intense short-term affairs have been her relationship of choice. She never expected that a contract in Tokyo would reunite her with a lover from S. Korea, or that he’d still be able to make her weak kneed with his cooking.
About the Author
You would think a person with an advanced degree in a science discipline would have more sense than to be a fiction writer. Alas, I apparently skipped that session of course work and ran full bore at the Science Fiction and Fantasy wall. If you heard a teeth rattling sound a while back, pay it no mind - it was just me trying to knock sense back into my own head. Apparently all it did was knock a couple more story lines loose. Go figure.
