Cli-Fi at its best, where the twisted scientific changes of our present-day lives catalyze love in parallel universes. Told in pandemic times, LOVEOID grapples with the dilemmas of the latest generation of humankind ⎯ that the loving don’t survive. In the present-day novel LOVEOID, Olivia unravels a virus that only harms the corporate upper crust. In combat with media, governments and corporations, as love-lacking predators on top kill off life on earth, Olivia finds love, and comes to question her own ideals. The impossibly mixed match encounters life-threatening obstacles, as Khalid elicits her darkest fears, yet lights the way with astrologicial farming, ancient holistic remedies and spiritualism. Will love allow them to stay human?

“LOVEOID is a wildly unique and immensely realized science fiction thriller set in a dystopian present in which overpopulation is decimating the Earth and its natural resources at a rapid rate. Additionally, the world of the story is incredibly deep, filled with dense detail and nuance that give the impression of a very realized universe.”

“About time some serious writers and artists took on the biggest issue of our time⎯⎯maybe all time. This novel shows that engagement fully underway!”

⎯Bill McKibben, Founder 350.org

“The smart choice to set this eco-thriller in the present brings home the tenebrous climate prognostications we usually reserve for another year.”
