Old earth has been deemed unsuitable for life, New Earth is home. With the Uni-Wars over, races have joined together in order to sustain their way of life. All life was considered worth saving, but only one race failed to submit. Humans.
Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in their eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood, human blood.
Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.
Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn’t for her golden skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.
All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.

Human blood as food is the common element that The Genesis Project, a Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance, has with your Paranormal Romance series, The Shadow Unit. What differentiates the two series?
In the Genesis Project there are vampires and other mythical beings but said beings as well as Vampires are from different planets lending to the Sci-Fi atmosphere based far into the future, whereas The Shadow Unit Series is set in present day, and you have your more paranormal element, vampires, or vampiri in this case, Lycans (Werewolves) Phoenix’s as well as other aspects that I have thrown in there with my own twists.
I saw you like to take pictures of beautiful things. How important is and how do you use the visual in your books?
Some of the pictures I take are used for scenery, but I most take pictures because I enjoy it. And what I may see as beautiful is very subjective. I like weird, but I also have a thing for nature shots as well, like sunrises/sunsets, trees, rain… etc.
Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance. What defines this genre and what is the most important aspect of it?
Good question… To me the Sci-Fi PNR Romance is loosely based on the elements. It can be that there are Paranormal creatures such as Vampires, or werewolves and then you spin it with it being far into the future with technology changing, as well as space travel. My vampires are from a different planet, and there is the entire Federated Universe thing that lends to that really strong Sci-Fi element. “Jumping” ( a form of inter planet travel) and so on.
When the intimate scenes are too much?
I don’t think there has ever been a scene too intimate for me. I actually enjoy trying to figure out how I’m going to make things work, while also trying to add a certain flare to it, like with food, or maybe in the shower, or in odd places. Depends on the mood I’m in. J
What is the most challenging when you create a Sci - Fi world and how do you handle it?
Trying to keep it all together while at the same time making it seem realistic. So that the reader can actually picture the scene and see the characters really doing the things I write about. Sometimes it works, other times it comes off as awkward. I think having a massive imagination also lends to it. Thinking the impossible and making it possible.
Thank you for having me on your blog today! I really enjoyed the questions! I love your name by the way! And I big thank you to the readers, old and new who pick up The Genesis Project!
About the author:
There is really not much to say... I love to write, read, and listen to music. My attempt at a music career sadly ended at the Apollo one warm night in May. LOL (Side note: I was not booed just outdone by two munchkins rapping to Biggy Smalls, they were good.
Military brat extraordinaire; have traveled to a lot of interesting places. This February I will be going over to the other side of the pond where I will spend two weeks in Europe. I will be in Cambridge, London, Paris, Versailles, Bruges, and hopefully Cardiff.
The very first time I put pen to paper in story fashion (for fun), was in 6th grade. The story was called, The Case of The Missing Pepperoni. It was a cute mystery where all the ingredients and shop appliances came to life when the store owner closed up for the evening. See, pretty boring stuff. I always say I'm not the interesting one, but the people around me.
