Who owns Antarctica's ice: big business, environmentalists or Mother Nature? In this timely, terrifying thriller, green-minded Ben Maki's mission is to melt the polar ice caps to create fresh drinking water for millions of people. Instead, he inadvertently unleashes a horrifying apocalypse as project scientists fall prey to both vicious Antarctic rats and an encroaching deadly illness that threatens all of mankind. Filled with fascinating science and thorny ethical questions, Freezing Point takes horror to a chilling new degree.About the Author:
Detroit native Karen Dionne dropped out of the University of Michigan in the 1970s and moved to Michigan's Upper Peninsula wilderness with her husband and infant daughter as part of the back-to-the-land movement. During the next thirty winters, her indoor pursuits included stained glass, weaving, and constructing N-scale model train layouts.
Eventually, her creative interests turned to writing. Karen's short stories have appeared in Bathtub Gin, The Adirondack Review, Futures Mysterious Anthology Magazine and Thought Magazine. She worked as Senior Fiction Editor for NFG, a print literary journal out of Toronto, Canada, before founding Backspace, an Internet-based writers organization with over 850 members in a dozen countries.
Karen is a member of Sisters in Crime, the Mystery Writers of America, and the International Thriller Writers, where she serves as Debut Authors Committee Chair. She and her husband live in Detroit's northern suburbs. Freezing Point is her first novel.
