A trilogy of steampunk books, the first one being Gertrude & Grace:

Blood Sisters; one with a damaged soul and the other who contains the light of life, face the ultimate question. Gertrude and Grace must make a choice: will they choose Love or their Destiny? Their lives depend on their decision and so does their world’s.

T. Libertiny is a beach bum.  As you may suspect, you can usually find him on a beach somewhere in the world.  T grew up on a beach, prefers holding business meetings on a beach, vacations on the beach, plans to live on a beach and likes long walks on the beach.  He has an engineering degree, loves the combination of science and art and has a sense of humor that’s as dry as sand.  Which brings us full circle back to the beach.
