Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, a Vulcan belief, meets the Hierarchy of Needs of Abraham Maslow. That's a new universe of mine, which draws from James Bond, not to say that you only live twice, but you come of age twice:
Once as a youth
Once as an adult defining where you want to go, in this case, polyamorously.
Characters are drawn from my own experience, and I hope are more real, complex, and yes, sexy, than in other tales.
