What would happen if survival meant something more than just food, water and shelter? How would a community respond to being told that to survive they must marry people who are socially repulsive to them? And who would enforce such a curse on his own family? When James and his siblings watch their world burn around them, they thought that survival was the only thing to consider. But with only 63 survivors, and 30 of those that are capable of reproduction, they must face an impossible choice. Four Kiths, with a hatred of interbreeding, must create one united family tree, or die without ever leaving a legacy to remember their lives. Based on genetic research using Biblical, Jewish, Amish, and Muslim family trees, the story of Genea tells what happens when love is secondary to survival, and the human condition fights against mathematics.

About the Author:

Emily St. John was born and raised in Maine. Her mother encouraged her love of reading and writing, always wanting her to improve her education. She graduated from Scarborough High School in 2007 and then did two years at Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania where she met her husband. She moved back to Maine two years later and graduated from the University of Southern Maine in 2011. Her book Grati Tighearna was the product of her love of genealogies and her obsession with the ability of humans to love in all circumstances. The book took five years to create, and she is currently writing the second in the series. She hopes to have that one finished by the end of 2012.
