I came up with the idea for the novel, "Half Life" about three years ago, in an effort to do something unique in a Science Fiction market that seems to consist of people copying each other--where most people still fight with swords 10,000 years in the future or in a far-away galaxy.
Brief TeaserIn a dystopian oligarchic future, a warrior father returns home for a son that he’d left behind.
On a distant world, a girl child, not wholly human, is born to physically share the dreams of that boy.
Its beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. You experience a type of epiphany when that someone wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts and watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around and let them inside.
In order to enjoy science fiction you must first suspend disbelief. There are a lot of people who don't enjoy science fiction because they have difficulty with that disconnect, however, I maintain that a well written story that connects with people is interesting no matter what genre that it is written in.
What if you dreamed someone else's life while you were asleep and they dreamed your life? What if you were starcrossed to meet? And what if one of you was pledged and honor bound to kill the other? That is the core of the plot and while there are other story arcs, it is that sharing that this book attempts to imagine and explore.
I hope to have the book complete and edited by the end of summer at the latest.
