Pequena biografia
I grew up in California, where I wrote snippets of stories and passed them to my friends during class. My teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated my stories a couple times.
I left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees (B.S. Aerospace Engineering, M.S. Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering) and work everywhere from NASA to NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) to a little Venice Beach restaurant called The Green Bean (I was the bookkeeper). I've designed aircraft engines, studied global warming, and held elected office (as a school board member). Now that I write novels, my business card says "Rocket Scientist and Author," and I don't have to sneak my notes anymore.
Which is too bad.
All that engineering comes in handy when dreaming up dystopian future worlds or mixing science with fantasy to conjure slightly plausible inventions. For my stories, of course. Just ignore that stuff in the basement.
My middle grade boys clamor for more middle grade books with magic and gadgets and less teen novels with kissing. Unfortunately for them, I enjoy writing both.
I write from the Chicago suburbs with my three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as much as I can handle.

I'm sensitive to plot errors, and this started off with enough unplausable and contradictory elements i gave up before the end of the first chapter

After a bad experience with both an employer and a family, Lucia's delighted to be matched to a new family near her new job. But when the power cuts out unexpectedly she discovers her fresh start isn't going to be as simple as she'd hoped.

With an original plot, stellar world building, and an engaging writing style, this book has a bit of something for everyone. The only thing that detracted from it for me was Joe. I think he's meant to come off as romantic – but to me he reads as creepy and stalkerish.… (mais)

I made it to 50%, a little past when "soul" is first mentioned (as in, Legacy humans still have souls so we're the real humans, not Ascenders). Nonsense. I already had issues with Ascender tech anyway, it makes no sense, and the differences between the changed people and unchanged people were also nonsensical. But having a religion movement bring down the high tech changed people? What? What's that got to do with anything? Oh, wait, Ascenders outlaw religion. The way they're described, they shouldn't care. But this is propaganda.

It's not very good, either. The idea of having an 'Olympics'' of arts, the idea of painting masterfully all at once, on cue, in front of an audience, is ridiculous. It's another way to paint (haha) Ascenders as less-than, not human, bad guys. As an artist, I call BS. As a writer, I call BS.

This is not okay. Don't give this to your kids.

Quick fun read

I read it so fast. The author did a fabulous job staying out of the way. A wonderful sci-fi that isn't apocalyptic.

I hate the three-book per story, but I am biting the bullet and reading the next one.
