Jenes Inarya wants to experience everything, and quite frankly, she doesn't think she can live life to the fullest in the time she's been allotted. A search through lore and legend from the Eight Immortals of Chinese myth to the Garden of Eden finally leads her to what she seeks--across the galaxy, to the planet of Arak. By eating food prepared from Arak's immortal plants, Jenes can alter her metabolism and gain eternal life. In her case, it’s a cup of palm wine. A real aqua vitae. But the prospect of eternal life quickly causes more problems than it solves. Betrayed by her friends, haunted by the prospect of death for everyone she knows, lacking direction, and apparently pursued by the Arakians who made her immortal, Jenes must come to terms with her choice and learn how to live when she will live forever.

For the month of March I am a featured writer on AnthologyBuilder, which means any anthology including at least one of my stories is $1 off. I have a short-story collection available there, but the offer works on any anthology. I have 21 stories on the site, including reprints from Every Day Fiction, MindFlights, Kaleidotrope, and the Lorelei Signal.
21 stories published from 2008-2009 are now available in Things Seen Through the Mind's Eyes in the AnthologyBuilder library.
My novella "Aqua Vitae" will be published by WolfSinger Publications sometime in 2011.
Jenes Inarya's quest for immortality drives her across the galaxy, but the prospect of eternal life seems to cause more problems than it solves.
Expect many more updates to this page over the year as more information becomes available.
