College student Gail Rickenbach is less than a semester away from graduating with a degree in Journalism, in 1968, when she contracts Transform Sickness and becomes a Focus. As a young woman of the 60s, she’s faced with a vast array of interpersonal problems as she attempts to care for an entire household of men and women Transforms, most older than her. Complicating her life is the fact that her abilities as a Focus do not match the information given to her by the authorities.
This stand-alone short novel, set in the Commander universe, can be read independently of the other books of the Commander series. The main character of this short novel, however, does appear later in the Commander series.
About the Author
Greetings. I am an author, science nerd, an amateur photographer, a father, and a pencil and paper game designer and gamemaster. My formal education was in geology and geophysics, and back in the day I worked in the oil industry tweaking software associated with finding oil. Since I left the oil industry, I've spent most of my time being a parent, but did have enough time to get two short stories published (in Analog and Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine). Now I'm giving epublishing a try, and I have an ample supply of novel-length publishable material to polish and publish.
