"The Babi Makers"
The story takes place on Nové, where there is no war, hunger, or conflict of any kind. It's a "happy life ever" on this utopian world where balance has finally been achieved after all life was nearly extinguished during The Fall. Babies are the most important resource on the planet. The main character, Hiperyan, works in the babi industry, assembling babies. Her life is perfect. Her virile mate, Dion, is ideal. But she's been feeling a little sick, of late, with a mysterious illness new to the healers she visits. Concerned when the healers begin to die in a series of "accidents," Dion teams with his best friend, Conr, to take action. They eventually discover that Hiperyan's illness may jeopardize not only their lives, but all of Nové.
I'm pretty excited, as it's my first foray into science fiction after spending years writing historical fiction.

[In case you don't already know, the fantastic cover for this and all my other novels was done by my ultra-talented spouse, Matt.]
