I wrote Body Master many years ago as part of an anthology that didn’t quite gel. I loved it, but the time simply was not right. There were other books to write, other contracts to fulfill, and years passed. When I found it in my files one day, my passion for that story was re-ignited for these two people—one human woman and one alien shapeshifter—walking down the streets of Manhattan on a mission that neither one of them wanted. This was a story that needed to be told, but it would take a miracle.
Enter Fate. I was given an agent who had faith in me, an editor and house that I’d always wanted to work for, and a market ripe for a story for the ages.
NYC with its amazing microcosm of humanity and underground labyrinth was the perfect setting. Seneca and Max with their ingrained and well-earned distrust for each other and shared loss were the perfect characters. Government secrets, hidden agendas, murderous intent, and betrayal was the perfect plot.
Body Master is the perfect storm. It may never happen again, but for this miracle, I am grateful.
