My parents just didn't understand me. They thought I should settle down, get married, and kick out a couple of grandkids. This despite the vast problems of overpopulation in 2103. But my heart drew me elsewhere. I longed to retreat to the solitude of the Chartreuse order and put my botany skills to good work.

Chartreuse is part of the Lisa Shea Sci-Fi Short Stories series. Each short story can be read in any order. All author's proceeds from this series benefit battered women's shelters.
Lisa's short stories emerge as haiku - as glimpses into lives which amble and turn. She seeks to show how we are all alike in many ways - and yet each of us retains that unique spark that sets us apart. We are flawed creatures, certainly, and yet we continue to strive, to put one foot in front of the other, and to find a place where we can feel comfortable in our own skin.
