During the week, my days are spent managing computer systems for a community college district that covers 10,000 square miles. At night and on the weekends, I journey into the world of my imagination and write novels that reflect my passions and my belief that the good guys win in the end and that love will conquer all.

Growing up I had the reputation for being a "goody-two-shoes." Some people rebel against that reputation, but I revelled in it. I didn't have fantasies of being a "bad" girl, and I never dreamed of growing up to marry a rich man. My parents raised me with the belief that I could be whoever I wanted and accomplish anything. I have tested that belief many times through careers in psychology, acting, computer programming, and now helping faculty to teach through distance education, and bringing 21st century technology to a rural part of California. I've always been one who loved my life no matter where it took me.

Both triumph and tragedy have shaped me into who I am. Like most women, I've survived illness, heartache, and disappointment. And somehow I found real love and passion in the end. Yes, the kind that you read about in romance novels really does exist!

Living 800 years is like the fountain of youth for some...and for others it's worse than a death sentence.

Eternity, Inc. owns a virus that allows humans to live up to 800 years--their physical bodies age only one year for every ten years of life. Miki Yokoyama leads a rebel organization known as the Agers. Her goal is to create a counter agent to reintroduce "natural" death, no matter the cost. When Eternity learns of the Ager plan, they send their best agents to infiltrate Miki's organization and to sabotage any efforts to distribute a counter-virus.

Rohin Chawla and Miki were science partners and passionate lovers when they originally discovered the Eternity virus in Antarctica two hundred years ago. But they separated as enemies. When they meet again, Rohin realizes he must rally his resources to stop the Ager virus or risk the only viable future he sees.

But no one can foresee the extent human treachery will go when there are astronomical profits and world-wide political power at stake. Will Rohin and Miki combine forces against a greater evil, or fight each other over prolonged life or natural death? Their decision will determine who survives—and, ultimately, the outcome of humanity's future.
