The following short interview with award-winning scientist, Dr. Emmaline Silvay, occurs just before the events of Genetic Attraction now available from Loose Id at
First, a blurb about the book.
At a conservative Long Island University, renowned researcher, Dr. Emmaline Silvay, has two great loves – her life-saving work, and her younger research partner, Jake Martin. The romantic love is impossible. She’s his boss and he lives with his girlfriend. The the “girlfriend” is actually a boyfriend, the beautiful and infamous supermodel, Roan Black.
Resigned to a platonic relationship, Em accepts a weekend invitation to their home, but the men have a menage on their minds. She can’t resist, doesn’t even want to. But their intentions go far beyond passion. They want her to “be a part of them”. Their three-way love defies propriety and the standards of the University that funds their work. The supermodel’s fame makes secrecy impossible. Their ménage threatens to crumble all she’s worked for. What will give way to make room for genetic attraction?
But, in this interview, Em doesn’t yet know what happens when she goes for that weekend visit
Tara: Dr. Silvay, I’m delighted you had time to speak with me.
Em: My pleasure, and please call me Em.
Tara: Thank you, Em. Tell me what you’re working on.
Em: We research genetic sequencing. It provides the basis for tests that can determine the best course of treatment for major illnesses like cancer.
Tara: Sounds life-saving.
Em: It has that potential, yes. And we’re seeing very promising results in our clinical studies.
Tara: You say “we”. Who else is involved?
Em: I have a whole team here at the University. Of course, there’s my associate researcher, Dr. Martin.
Tara: That’s Dr. Jake Martin?
Em: Yes, have you seen him .. I mean, have you met him?
Tara: Yes, we’ve met. He seems to be a very big fan of yours.
Em: (smiling) He does? Uh, yes, I admire him a great deal. He’s brilliant and very good at his, uh, work.
Tara: (grinning) I got the feeling that he might be more than just a colleague of yours.
Em: What? Oh, well, he’s a friend also.
Tara: (smiling) I don’t mean to pry, but isn’t he more than a friend?
Em: (looking down) Oh, no. He’s committed elsewhere. He lives with his girlfriend in Connecticut. (looks up) And, of course, I am his lead researcher so that makes me his boss, sort of, and the University would so not approve, plus he’s much younger than I. What would he want with an old-maid scientist like me? (grins)
Tara: But you sound like you wouldn’t mind a more, shall we say, personal relationship?
Em: (grinning) You sound like my mother. She’s always telling me to have more sex! She’s outrageous, but I love her. (laughs) She says the professor I’m dating right now doesn’t know his dick from a laser pointer.
Tara: And what does she think of Dr. Martin?
Em: She calls him my adorable boy toy. (giggles) That’s very inappropriate.
Tara: So, what do you think will happen between you and Jake?
Em: (signs) It’s an impossible situation. I guess we’ll just stay good friends.
Tara: Despite your genetic attraction?
Em: (laughs) That’s good. I have to remember that.
Watch for much more about the writing of Genetic Attraction and my other novels in the coming days. : )
