About the Author

Nicola M. Cameron is a married woman of a certain age who really likes writing about science fiction, fantasy, and sex. When not writing about those things, she likes to make Stuff™. And she may be rather fond of absinthe.

While possessing a healthy interest in sex since puberty, it wasn't until 2012 that she decided to write about it. The skills picked up during her SF writing career transferred quite nicely to speculative romance. Her To Be Written work queue currently stands at around nineteen books, and her mojito-sodden Muse swans in from Bali every so often to add to the list, cackling to herself all the while.

Nicola plans to continue writing until she drops dead over her keyboard or makes enough money to buy a private island and hire Rory McCann as her personal trainer/masseur, whichever comes first.

Degree of Resistance is the first book in a new series by Nicola M. Cameron in the #Cyberpunk/#Science_Fiction genres. In this series, climate change is real. There is snow in the Sahara, places in India are only inhabitable for about 3 months out of 12, due to the searing heat in the summer and freezing in the winter. After The Warming happened, life was chaos, but some form of normality has been regained. However, it only takes one thing to knock everything off balance. This is what happens to Evie when her boyfriend/fiance dies, and she is suddenly in charge of a 6-year old. She makes decisions and sacrifices, changing her life towards a new direction. Eleven years later, she hears a story from her daughter which throws her life into chaos once again. This is exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The story is intriguing, with lots of twists and turns to keep your interest. There are more shocks and surprises as the book continues. This story is wrapped up nicely, whilst still leaving you wanting more, and leading nicely onto the next book. A new direction from Nicola M. Cameron, and definitely recommended by me. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
