Tam was the kid who took AP Chemistry and AP Biology her Senior year of High School. After winning a scholarship to a DOE camp at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, touring the superconducting supercollider, and karyotyping DNA from the HIV virus, she came to realize if she pursued biomedical engineering, she might never see the outside of a lab again.

Consequently, she earned a Bachelor of Science in English, and now writes about fictional characters who have taken biomedical engineering to extremes.

She is also an avid gardener, cook, fisherman and hunter, urban homesteader, and GMO labeling advocate in love with self-sufficiency. Her current residence is the great state of Alaska, where she was born and now lives with her husband and two wonder

I listened to this on audio and LOVED it. The narrator is amazing with the different voices. And the author has done awesome world building for this storyline. If you like dystopia and rich, engaging characters, this book is for you.

I wrote this as a futuristic novel, but the reader is, of course, welcome to interpret the novel in any way they please :)

Kevin has done a wonderful service for anyone wishing to create a video with musical accompaniment. I donated on his website, and will again when I create future videos using his musical talent.

Paul Thank you!
This is a book, that should I not win, I will probably have to purchase. Although I can't obviously know the story beforehand, I like the idea and the concept of a botanical holocaust (as a story... the real thing would surely horify me) and the steps mankind would take to survive... including canibalism.
The video mention that this started many centuries ago, am I to take it this takes place in a "parallel" time-line? Or do the many centuries ago reflect the perspective of a future person reflecting back on "this" earth?
Anyhow, win or lose, I'm sure you'l be hearing from me at some point down the line.

BTW, I absolutely loved the feeling received from Kevin Macleod's music while watching said video.

Tam Linsey Great to meet you, Paul. I'm glad you liked the video :) Best of luck!
