Without an influx of human DNA, the utopian colony on Kipos has eleven generations before it reaches failure. Earth is over ninety light years away. Time is short.
On the over-crowded Earth, many see opportunity in Kipos' need. After medical, intelligence, and physiological testing, Abby and her younger siblings, Jin and Orchid, are offered transportation. Along with 750,000 other strong young immigrants, they leave the safety of their family with the expectation of good jobs and the opportunity for higher education.
Elizabeth loves to create. In her mind, she has the best job (or jobs) in the world. She gets an idea, runs with it until it leads her to generate whatever it is going to be.
Over the past decade, she has created over 100 paintings, three graphic novels and a comic book series. Other Systems is her first published novel.
Elizabeth currently lives in Seattle with her husband and two dogs.
Besides writing and creating artwork, Elizabeth's interests include:
• Snowshoeing in the winter, hiking in the summer, dancing badly any time
• Reading science fiction, horror and fantasy novels preferably while sitting in the sun with her dogs
