Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thanks to science and a raft of medical advances, life is longer and better, but it's still not forever.  Some say cloning is the answer, but is true immortality possible even then? 

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.

About the Author

Kathy's publishing career dates back to 1997.  She published two romances with Bantam's Loveswept line--one of which, For Love or Money, won a 1997 Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award.

In 2012, Kathy self-published two futuristic thrillers.  Amanda's Eyes is a tale of  murder and mayhem with a dash of "there are more things under heaven, Horatio."  Why Live? is two parts futuristic thriller, one part love story.
