Meet Zousan, aka, Zeus:
Gods age much, much slower than us. Zousan looks to be in his thirties, but he’s over thirty billion earth years old. Oh course, he doesn’t judge his age by earth rotations. That would be silly. Truth is, he categorizes his life in three segments slots: his years growing up in the space academy, the years of misery under his tyrannical and unreasonable father’s thumb, and his years of freedom when he burst forth into a newly created multiverse, finally in charge of not just his life, but his entire crew.
In short order, he discovered leading a bunch of Gods was a pain in the ass. But one of his staff, he adores. His daughter, Athena. She was just a child when they burst through and honestly, she was his sole captivation over the next few billion years. (I’m using earth measurements since we never adopted the Universal time measurements of space.)
However, this piece of art disturbed him.
From early on, his creative daughter spent most of her time making artwork from space particles. At first they were clumsy splatters, but as she matured so did her designs. Recently she had created three plumes that looked far too much like a man’s privates to suit his liking.
Since he’d threatened all his male crew with a one-way trip through a black hole sans ship if they messed with his daughter, she shouldn’t have a clue what lay beneath their uniforms, especially not ones standing so firm and tall.
He intended to discover which of his worthless crew he needed to return to his father with a note saying, “Great job! This loser you insisted I take onto my ship defiled your beloved granddaughter and you are thus fired from all grand-parenting duties.”
For the next million years, he spied on his daughter. Upon finding no worthless men sneaking into her room, he tried another technique: honesty.
He called her in and asked her what she thought her pretty columns represented.
Athena blushed and suddenly found great interest in her hot cocoa.
“Sweetheart, I’m not trying to embarrass you, but I do need to know who showed you something that inspired you to make three of these.”
She breathed in deeply. “The computer.”
“Then none of the crew has touched you?”
“No, but that has to change. I am a young woman now, and I have needs.”
He so regretted opening up this can of worms. “Wow! Look at the time. I have a meeting with my crew...”
The Gods of Probabilities
The Gods require a time shifter to ensure the Path of Light reigns during the final collapse of possibilities. To speed the process of finding an Oceanic with the specific talents needed, God DNA is induced in several batches of Oceanic eggs, resulting in a generation of brilliant tiny blue Oceanic children.
One charming boy named Drogan has the ability to manipulate quantum reality in ways that will strengthen the Path of Light. Only trouble is that his gift runs a high probability of killing him and wiping out the Path of Light for good.
While the bureaucratic Gods will try to assist, in Quantum all possibilities not only can, but do happen, so the future is never certain.

In addition she hopes, if she hasn’t dropped from exhaustion by then, to re-release a sometimes humorous/suspense thriller called Saving Casey. It’s the story of a middle-class old woman who dies and wakes up in a trust-fund teen’s body with no choice but to turn around Casey’s life, despite the many bridges the teen has burnt.
Liza would love to know: What’s your favorite genre?
