Lets start out learning a bit about these two fabulous books in this Chronicles
Regeneration X is a story about having choices and dealing with the consequences; creating new memories and letting others fade; and making sacrifices in pursuit of happiness.
At one time or another, you’ve probably said or thought, “In hindsight, …” So, what happens when To have been, becomes something that can be changed?
In the not too distance future, Charley faces a hard choice: whether or not to follow her long since abandoned dreams. Journey with her on a quest, and you’ll be asking, “If I could change the past, would I?” Delve into this simple question, because one day soon, you too, may have that chance. Our world is flying forward—fast; would you glide, or take the risk and soar?
To be or to have been ... THAT is the question.

Consequently, Emery is also quietly learning just what it means to be the daughter of a martyred woman. Undoubtedly, she bears a strong resemblance to her mother, but more than auburn hair and expressive facial features, Emery would like to believe she’s inherited the same strength of character as well. And yet, believing and knowing are entirely separate matters.
Since everything changes with time—in varying degrees—and destiny often unfolds a plan unforeseen, Emery may just find the opportunity to test her belief. In fact, the entire human population will come face to face with their true inheritance.
The question is how this legacy will be received. For the future is inevitable, this much is certain. Lest we forget, the mere passage of time does not come with it the entitlement to life. To live and prosper is a path that is earned, but mankind has seemingly forgotten this. Can Emery remind the world that survival requires conscious effort? Will Emery and her friends, Cassidy, a fellow chronicler, Liam, a brilliant engineer, and Aiden, a reserved mediator be enough to save the oblivious many?

Excerpt Regeneration X
Dr. Baum surprised her and suddenly she was glad of his uncommon techniques; her general discomfort was forgotten. Inez was right; he was very good. He didn’t tell her what she wanted to hear, exactly, nor did he just sit around, passively listening, waiting for her to reveal some deep down mental issue. She hadn’t mentioned the painting was based on a dream, but he had made another of those almost psychic connections.
Keeping in mind his comment about depressing thoughts potentially becoming habitual, Charley offered the following and hoped it wasn’t self-deprecating: “I feel as if the things I want from life are out of my control; chances have passed and now I just have to deal with the result of the ill-informed or the ill-prepared-for choices I’ve made. I don’t feel I’m unhappy; I’m just not motivated or content with a good part of my life.
“Outside of work I spend a good deal more time ruminating about one thing or another. Thinking, thinking and doing nothing. If I am being completely honest, I admit I create projects for distraction, which seems to give me a mental break for a short time, until I come up with something else to do. It’s a little obvious—even my husband jokes about it. And I have problems falling asleep. My dreams are strange and I wake up unaware of my surroundings.”
“I see. Your mind is very active, but you are not. We’ll get to the details later. For now, tell me of a time when you felt in control of your life and your ability to make life-altering choices. You can start anywhere—a memory of a particular moment you revisit frequently.”
Excerpt From Progeny
“Emery. I’m not surprised to see you, but glad anyway,” Liam greets pushing large fingers through his strawberry blond hair. He is rather attractive, in a scruffy, burly way—he definitely doesn’t look to be the brainiac that he is, instead projecting more the look of a lumberjack—tall, over six feet, broad-shouldered and muscular under the questionable outfit of a red plaid shirt, ragged jeans, and orange construction boots.
“I’d see you a bit more often if you ever came out of your cave,” I smile in return.
Liam’s studio slash lab is in basement level of the Union Station building. It is a typical industrial space boxed in by concrete walls about twenty feet tall and supported by exposed steel girders and beams. Although it appears empty, it’s in fact filled with science equipment and long tables of concrete slab off to the sides and at the back. As I look over his shoulder into the vast space, there isn’t a cushy, inviting piece of furniture in sight. He grins knowingly as he stands in the doorway and then steps aside to let me walk past him into the cavern. My shoulder brushes his chest and briefly, I feel the solid strength that I had suspected lay underneath his clothes. In as brief an instant I also feel him tense against my grazing touch.
