West of Tomorrow

By Dirk B. Sayers

Genre: General Fiction

It’s a long way to West of Tomorrow—a day when the sun rises on a world we don’t recognize. To that day when looming, fateful decisions will change everything. It’s not that Clay Conover has been dodging this day so much as he’s been focused on day-to-day practicalities. Still, as a re-careered Marine officer, you’d expect him to be alert for ambushes.

But not all of Clay’s past experience is relevant to his future, and Sheera Prasad looks nothing like the ambushes he’s accustomed to dealing with. So when Clay is tasked with training her, he sees only professional potential in a distractive package he does his best to ignore. And they both know better than to let things go beyond professional. Well, don’t they?

When a corporate power play further complicates an already complicated situation, Clay and Sheera face choices that will rule their future and their fate. Can love and career coexist, and how will their respective pasts inform their decisions? West of Tomorrow is a tale of corporate intrigue, flexible ethics, ill-fated loves and the Phoenix living in us all.
