…And keep reading for a chance to win a copy of her novel!
Can you tell us a bit about the plot of Children of Scarabaeus in your own words?
The story takes up where Song of Scarabaeus left off: Edie needs to get to the Fringe worlds, where she has something that will help the people there, but she gets captured along the way. She is recruited back into her mentor/nemesis’s terraforming project that she’s certain will turn out to be highly destructive – so much so that humans across the galaxy may end up with nowhere to live in a few generations. She also discovers that gifted children are being used for the project, and she wants to help the children avoid the life that she’s had.
Her bodyguard Finn, who is “leashed” so he’ll die if he leaves her, is along for the ride. The two of them have a growing attraction and the relationship progresses in this book. It’s hampered by the fact that Edie’s emotions cause him discomfort, because of the leash, so they are always looking for a way to deal with that. And, of course, a way to escape.
Are there more novels planned for the series?
There’s always a chance I’ll want to go back and continue Edie and Finn’s story but I’m writing something else now.
Can you tell us more about biocyph, and how you came up with the idea?
