Journalist Angela Anselm investigates a suspicious death in a late 21st century speakeasy, where the moonshine of the times is garlic mash rather than sour mash. She uncovers a conspiracy that could topple the NArc, the government system that keeps everybody healthy with its prescribed, engineered nutrition. How much will she risk to expose the truth?

I wrote The Blind Pig because, as a science writer, I see how science and technology are unfolding every day, particularly in health and medicine. While writing it, I had the most fun world-building, that is, taking today's challenges and discoveries and projecting them into the future. It took me about 3 years to write the book and, during that time and the 2 years since I published it, the topics I zoomed in on -- artificial meat, genetically and scientifically based diets, and contaminated food supplies -- have all made headlines again and again. In fact, when I do readings, I often pass around magazine articles that show that The Blind Pig, despite being set in 2065, is very much "pulled from the headlines."
I've listed The Blind Pig as science fiction, because it is, but I've also listed it as Romance because the book is about real people trying to make their way through their worlds and trying to find meaningful connections with one another, which, in an increasingly tech-infused world, just seems to get harder and harder.
I invite you to give The Blind Pig a chance and to write a review when you are done. I would love to hear what you think.
