Using alien tech, humans are able to alter and improve the DNA of any living thing and even bring species back from extinction, but they don't stop there and all things come with a price.
A hundred years after an alien organism has ravaged the earth, humans live in pockets of surviving populations across the Wasteland. Many of them are infected by a strange pathogen called Silverloid that turns the bones to metal and either kills its host or drives them to madness...except for Genesis. She’s a survivor from one of the last great cities on Earth and after living with Silverloid for more than half her life, she’s convinced it’s just a matter of time before it takes her.
Intent on giving her already condemned life to rid the Waste of the savage cannibals that destroyed her childhood, Genesis faces horrifying trials, but when everything she's ever known to be true shatters in the blink of an eye, Genesis is left questioning herself and everything around her. She must abandon her quest for revenge and trust in new allies if she’s going to put the pieces together again. There's only one problem. Between her and answers lies a sea of unfathomable dangers.
The Waste is the mother of all monsters. One Genesis is no stranger to and she isn't going down without a fight. Along the way, she may just find new reasons to live.

"GENESIS" began in 2009 and became a project for me over many years. I began writing this book after having a very detailed dream unlike any dream I've ever had. I've always had vivid nightmares and I write them all down, but most of the time they make no sense. This dream, however, played out in such a unique way, I couldn't stop thinking about it.
The dream began on the streets of what used to be a city or town, but it had been ravaged by time and everything was covered in dust and ruined. Myself and my cousin ran into an old library filled with gutted books and broken desks. Everything was stone with arched windows letting the late evening light in and a stone stairway leading to a second floor. All the while, a woman's voice narrated the dream with a poem of some kind or maybe a lullaby. Something a mother would tell her children before bed to warn them away from venturing out at night. I can't remember the words exactly, but I knew that the lullaby talked about wolves that came out in the darkness and devoured those who strayed too far from home.
By the end of the dream, my cousin and I were crouched outside the library, ducked behind overturned desks as men with guns and wasteland attire flooded in shouting orders between each other. The woman's poem continued, speaking of these wolves with metal exoskeletons, but she switched her tone when she mentioned the black wolves. They were smaller, but much more vicious and intelligent. They were black as night and the only way to see them in the shadows was to look for their glowing eyes.
By this time, I woke up feeling like I'd just watched an epic movie. I wrote everything down that I could and soon after, I built a universe around that one scene. As I am very tall and my cousin is very cute and petite, the first characters that I was set on creating were Genesis and Violan, two women who couldn't look more opposite, but are both capable in their own ways. I am NOT Genesis. Ha! I wish, but I assure you, she's the hero I've created in my head. As for the rest of it? Read it and find out where the story went from there!
