The Last Conception
I am honored to have my novel The Last Conception accepted for publication by Melange Books.
The contract was just signed, sealed and delivered (I’m yours).
Expected date of publication is April/May of 2014.
The Last Conception is the story of an engaging embryologist (Savarna) in Silicon Valley, her decision to try to have a child with her girlfriend and her conservative East Indian American parents, who tell her that she is the last in line of a great spiritual lineage and she MUST have a baby to carry on the bloodline. In the process of trying to conceive, Savarna and her partner begin to question the necessity of biology or lineage within her parents’ beliefs, as they are embedded ever more deeply into the mystery of conception. Threads of Dan Brown (DaVinci Code), Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni (Sister of My Heart) and The L Word (TV series) flavor this colorful tale of love, conflict and commitment.
