M.J. asked Kira Peikoff:

You are pursuing a degree in bio-ethics – how is that related to your novels?

Kira Peikoff I am fascinated by cutting-edge medical advances that have exciting potential to improve our lives, but that also pose unprecedented ethical dilemmas. I take a current real-life issue like stem cell research, or scientific attempts to cure aging, and then humanize it via suspense fiction. The characters in my books grapple with deeply philosophical, personal, and technical challenges that reflect those in our own society, but in a heightened dramatic form. Their journeys are primarily meant to entertain readers, but hopefully will also provoke thought and consideration of some of the hardest questions of our brave new world.
