In the not-too-distant future, math genius Doro Campbell is introduced to the Seneca Society: a secretive, technologically-advanced subterranean utopia dedicated to inventing and perfecting the most effective ways to benefit our planet.
But there’s a hitch. Like all that have come before her, Doro is given the ultimatum: Stay in Seneca forever, or leave now with no memory of the place, its goals, and its inhabitants.
Her ideals are shattered when, together with biotechnology whiz, Dominic Ambrosia, Doro uncovers profound deceptions beneath the surface of this all too-perfect community.
Will one teenage girl have what it takes to go up against swarms of drones, psychological manipulation and biological attacks, to uncover the truth and change the trajectory of the world?
Exclusive interview with the author:
1) Do you have a favorite writing beverage/snack?
Dark chocolate and soda water!
2) When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer? Have you had other jobs along the way?
My 3rd grade teacher @ Oakton Elementary, Mrs. Cooper, told me to “never stop writing.” At the time I had no idea why she said that, but in retrospect I totally get it and so appreciate it.
I have been screenwriting for over a decade now, and worked in film development before that, giving notes to writers.
3) If you weren’t a writer, what job would you love to try out?
I would love to be a chef. I have such admiration for culinary artistry. The show Chef’s Table on Netflix is so inspiring.
4) What do you do in your spare time when you’re not writing?
Hang out with my family and friends. We live near the ocean and love to search for sea critters in the tide pools at Leo Carrillo Beach during low-tide.
5) How do you come up with your characters’ personalities?
I love to write flawed characters that the audience roots for. I think about different people that intrigue me and I try to understand the way their minds work. Applying this exploration to fiction characters is what I find really brings a story to life and makes it relatable.
