Balmoral Murraine works in a Battery, assembling devices she doesn’t understand for starvation pay. Pasco Eborgersen is the pampered son of an Elite, trying to navigate the temptations of the Pleasure Houses, the self-sacrifice of the Faith, and the high-octane excitement of Steel Ball. They are two strangers, who never should have met, and now they will rip apart the world.

What happens when ninety percent of the world lives on skaatch – a jellyfish and insect composite?

What happens when mankind spends more time in alternative life sims instead of in the “real” world?

What happens when economic interest is the sole determinant of global decision …

The Corpse with the Ruby Lips by Cathy Ace

The Corpse with the Ruby Lips by Cathy Ace

1) Do you see yourself in any of your characters?
Although I now write two series of books (The Cait Morgan Mysteries and The WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries) I began with Cait, and she’s the character – out of all my characters – who is most like me.

Murder on the Mother Road by Glenn Nilson – Review, Interview + Giveaway

1) Describe your writing space.

I write on a laptop in order to be able to write any where. I have an upstairs office in our home in New York, but I often set up my laptop on a table on the porch or back deck downstairs. We have a big maple tree in our yard and our house sits on a trout stream. I enjoy glancing at the wildlife from time to time. I do pretty much the same thing in Florida. I can often look up and discover a tall heron or a couple of limpkins walking along the canal or perching on our patio furniture.

2) What influences your writing?

I was a sociologist in one of …
