In a future where society is classified by DNA, teenager Trina Hauk isn’t good at following the rules, despite her elite genetic designation. She’s never really fit in, kind of a loner really who has a major crush on Kalen, a boy she’s not matched to. Raised by the government, Trina has never had a choice in occupation, social standing or even love. Until Kalen is arrested for helping her cover up her latest mistake.
Now, the only way to save him is to seek help from an unlikely ally, a mysterious teenager named Jarek who is scheduled for termination. Jarek knows the prison location, but won’t tell unless Trina breaks him out of his cell. Becoming a fugitive isn’t exactly what she had in mind. And then there’s the part where she denies her growing attraction to Jarek. Pulled between the pre-determined life she’s always had and her forbidden love, Trina must choose who to trust…and who to save.
I'm a lifelong sci-fi geek who's still trying to cope with the cancellation of Firefly. I'm also a speculative fiction writer on a journey to share my stories. If I have a hot cup of coffee and a notebook nearby, I'm probably brainstorming my next tale. You can find my stories in Galaxy's Edge Magazine, Perihelion SF, and StarShipSofa among others.
