What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired by the looming threat of catastrophic climate change, which has since become a reality, the erosion of commitment to universal human rights, and the power dynamics of crisis, i.e. the predatory maneuvering of corporations seeking to capitalize on the aftermath of war and disaster. While I sought to portray the resulting future as horrifying and dystopian, I have no doubt that some will read about it and think "that's just what we need".
