My life has been somewhat upside down this past year with Sam’s illness and passing and this past few weeks, my father’s passing. To say that I am somewhat rocked to my foundations is putting it mildly.
However, I have found solace in writing the Genetrix series and immersing myself in another world. My father’s death caused a temporary hiatus from writing, but I have spent the time polishing the covers for the Gentix trilogy and I am pleased.
Today I almost completed the third cover and am revealing for the first time, the cover for book 2, Brethren.
Because I used one of my characters from the Spy Series, Steven Hunter, to launch the ghost series with Malice & Murder, the series was of necessity in England, as the protagonists were childhood friends, and both were from England. I love England, but I am Canadian. Thankfully, folks like my expert Kevin Robinson, allowed me to write an accurate version of British law.
But with the Genetrix series, I could write whatever worked for the new world I created. And, I wanted to bring the story back to Canada. All the major plot points in the series take place in a house, hence the tie-in with the dwellings on the covers. Book 1 was in an abandoned stone cottage in the English countryside, Book 2, Brethren took place in a Victorian style home in Calgary, Canada, and Book 3 , Threefold, in an ancient Celtic castle.
