About the Author

I grew up in the Midwest where the land is flat and the corn is tall. The winters are bleak and cold. I hated winters.

I always wanted to write. But writing was hard. And I wasn’t very disciplined. The cold had nothing to do with that, but it didn’t help. That changed in grad school.

After several attempts at a proposal, my major advisor was losing money on red ink and advised me to figure it out. Somehow, I did.

After grad school, his wife and my two very little children moved to the South in Charleston, South Carolina where the winters are spring and the summers are a sauna (cliche but dead on accurate). That’s when I started teaching and writing articles for trade magazines. I eventually published two textbooks on landscape design. I then transitioned to writing a column for the Post and Courier. They were all great gigs, but they weren’t fiction.

That was a few years later.

My daughter started reading before she could read, pretending she knew the words in books she propped on her lap. My son was a different story. In an attempt to change that, I began writing a story with him. We made up a character, gave him a name, and something to do. As with much of parenting, it did not go as planned. But the character got stuck in my head.

He wanted out.

A few years later, Socket Greeny was born. It was a science fiction trilogy that was gritty and thoughtful. That was 2005.

I have been practicing Zen since I was 23 years old. A daily meditator, I wanted to instill something meaningful in my stories that appeals to a young adult crowd as well as adult. I hadn’t planned to write fiction, didn’t even know if I had anymore stories in me after Socket Greeny.

Turns out I did.

I good read. Very original.

The first two books were good. The third book was good up until the part where all of the "Malcolms" were introduced. I had an e-book version and this is where my copy repeated the last several chapters. I don't know if this was just an e-book version glitch or if this is actually how the book ended. I really wanted to know how the story ended but was very disappointed with the ending.

All I can say is wow. I was blown away. Love the authors take on the future and technology and the subtle discussion of 'life'.

A.I., biomedical and stem cell research are happening now. Hope we'll be more level headed using them .

It took me while to finish all three books, however I kept coming back. Couldn't leave it alone. They were all very good, even if they stood alone, full of details, but more insight together. I wonder where Bertauski got these thoughts. The ending was breath taking and I wanted to cry. I have already downloaded Foreverland. And they were all free. I will be following this author. Thank you

Loved these books. I liked the premise of the story, the character development and believability of the scenarios.
