Well, first it was Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence ('cos they're funny and smart), then Mary Stewart's Gianetta and Nicholas ('cos they're smart enough to take a second chance), and then Margaret Mahy's Laura and Sorry Carlisle (the only YA couple, and witches too -- how could I not love them?), and then...well there are just so many! Recently, it's been Luke and Hope of 'Harcourt's Mountain' (so brave and pioneering and passionate), and my very own Charmaine and Rob, and Vivian and Munro (from Three Million's A Crowd in the Second Chances - A Love Anthology). Rob and Charmaine are such opposites and yet so complementary. They shouldn't really work, but they do. And Vivian and Munro as similar, yet so sweet and desperate to do the right thing that I can't help but love them. Thanks for the question. Sending all of you sweet thoughts this Valentine's month :-)(less)

Thank you so much for your question and for your kind words! I'm so glad you've enjoyed 'Unalienable Right', found more depth to it, and enjoyed the humor.
Unfortunately, I don't have a quick answer for you regarding adding it to your shelf just yet. It's still under contract to Sci Phi Journal for the moment, so you'd best look there for now.
In the future, I would probably release it with more of my short stories, but that may not be for a while yet. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks once again for your question and comments. It's greatly appreciated and encouraging for a writer like me.
Best wishes :-D(less)
