From a romance perspective what intrigued me about the story was the idea of enemies-turned-lovers who literally cannot get away from each other. How does that affect the dynamics of falling in love, and of working together to overcome the story's external conflicts?
My second novel, ECHO 8 (2011 Golden Heart finalist), is a sci-fi/paranormal blend about an energy "vampire" from an alternate Earth, the FBI agent intent on destroying him, and the parapsychologist caught in between.
I'm currently working on my third novel, for Tor -- a post-apocalyptic biopunk romance about a race of transgenic humans who are a sort of futuristic fae.
I have a passion for world-building and twisty plots. One theme that recurs in my writing is what it means to be human, and I'm also fascinated by symbiosis in human relationships. GHOST PLANET explores the idea of a literal symbiotic relationship. And *that's* what I love about speculative fiction!
