From the Author
Writing Why Live? brought me up against interesting questions like, why do we want to live forever? Should we live forever? What would history look like if we did live forever?
Then I wondered, what if a third-generation clone--card-carrying member of a dystopian society where living forever is the end all and be all--started to ask these same questions?
The novel is both a thriller and an exploration of what it means to be fully human, transcendentally unique, intensely alive. It's about the thrill of discovering your own heart and the cost of defending that heart--to the bitter end, if necessary.
Mostly, it's about why all of that matters.
