Neve Maslakovic’s life journey took her from Belgrade, Serbia to a PhD at Stanford University's STAR Lab to her dream job as a writer. Booklist called her debut novel, Regarding Ducks and Universes, "Inventive... a delight." Neve writes quirky fiction (usually with a mystery twist!) set in universes almost like our own, a past that can be time-traveled to, a near-future city. She lives with her husband and son south of the Twin Cities, where she admits to enjoying the winters. She is currently hard at work on her fifth novel.

It really seems to be one question, one answer, so will keep that in mind for the future, I guess)

I have to say I had a great time reading history books/articles for the 3 books in the series plus one novelette. It WAS a little frustrating, as you say Melissa, that there is so much that's unknown... until I realized that that's good in a way, because the unknown is where the story lies. I wrote a guest blog post on it a while back, which said that "the place to look for the story is right there, in that fuzzy intersection of the known and the uncharted." http://www.jeff-wheeler.com/?p=558

Visited York some twenty years ago, what a lovely, history-packed city!(less)

Quite liked this one. Two childhood friends find themselves, as young adults, on the opposite sides of a society mired in a stand-off over water rights. Unusual, inventive, an exploration of friendship, belonging, home.

A novel as intricate and lovely as the paintings that adorn the lives of Anne Charnock's sharply-drawn characters. A love letter to art and to womanhood, not to be missed.

“...it occurred to me that I was stuck somewhere in between, with neither the blind confidence of youth that everything would turn out as imagined nor the experience that builds up as years pass that i wouldn't matter if it didn't.”
Neve Maslakovic, Regarding Ducks and Universes

“The uninitiated often assumed that undergraduate students were at the bottom rung, but undergrads were the paying customers, or at least their parents were. And paying customers needed to be kept happy. Grad students worked for the school as teaching and research assistants--TAs and RAs--but weren't really proper employees, and as such they weren't entitled to the benefits that, say, a cataloger in the Coffey Library received. Then there was the fact that they had to learn to leave behind passive studying and test taking, which was what most of them had been taught in their school careers up to that point, and learn how to actively attack research problems and come up with new ideas, all while being poorly paid. Like Helen had said, a not insignificant number of grad students left after a year instead of sticking around to work on obtaining their PhDs. Who could blame them? Industry paid more and had better benefits.”
Neve Maslakovic, The Far Time Incident

“I spent a few minutes fully engrossed in the textbook, having forgotten where I was and why I was there, the highest compliment one can pay a book, I suppose.”
Neve Maslakovic, Regarding Ducks and Universes

“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
