"I write Post-Dystopian fiction. After society’s collapse, which is imagined in so many great dystopian stories, humans will either fade into history, with the dinosaurs, or, if it learns the right lessons, society will go on to construct a civilization to last tens of thousands of years.

Sometime I write crap though. But seriously, one can only write so much a day, and then one must walk away and not come back till the next day, giving time for 'the well to recharge'.

Lory’s new novel is finally finished! (Thank god it’s done!)

So, my new novel, Between Two Rivers, is finally finished. Now it’s time to find a new agent and then publisher. My apologies to readers who have been asking when the new novel will be available, but changing publishers is a long and frustrating process. Please be patient.


Below is a very short synopsis, like you would find on a book jacket. I’ll start blogging more about the upcoming book soon....

"Although this is the third/final book in the trilogy, I feel like events happen a bit too fast and there is too much. I honestly believe this could have been 100 pages longer.

There is a lot more time travel (from the 24th to 31st centuries), and H..." Read more of this review »
