cover art for Blood Surfer

Medical romance is a well-loved genre, and the search for a cure is one of my favorite science fiction plots. My inspiration for this story started with a question: What if the cure for any disease or wound could be achieved, not through surgery or from a newly discovered drug, but from a person who could travel inside the human bloodstream? Does anyone remember INNERSPACE or FANTASTIC VOYAGE?

I wanted to go deeper with my story. I needed to have my heroine experience healing without the barrier of a miniaturized ship between her and her patient, like in the episode of THE BRAVE & THE BOLD: JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE BAT.

Like Aquaman and the Atom, Hannah Quinn has super powers. She can cure anyone of anything, whether they suffer from cancer or the common cold. Her power can change the course of human history, but she’s only one person. What will happen when the world discovers what she can do? Sheer numbers would prevent her from curing the entire population of Star Haven or Thunder City, and more importantly, she can’t cure herself. She goes into hiding, because at the age of eighteen she doesn’t have the life experience or the power to fend off those who would capture her, or manipulate her into doing their bidding. While on the run, the last thing Hannah needs is to fall in love.
