While hiding in Alaska with her dog and the Artificial Intelligence she rescued, Lauren Greene has been pulled into a desperate search for a group of locals who've disappeared into an abandoned government complex. With no help from the police - and afraid that asking anyone else for assistance would risk revealing the AI to the people hunting it - Lauren chooses to return to the mysterious complex and search alone, despite the mysteries and terror she knows await her there.
About the Author
As he grew older and his confidence grew, Von began to seriously consider a creative life-- in 1994, he started outlining several stories that he'd had in his head for years. That same year, he was hired to run Perfect Books, a small independent bookstore in a middle class neighbourhood of Ottawa. Through hard work, and an unerring book-sense, he turned the store into a successful literary destination for the area. It was there that he met his future wife, Moggy, although it took a year for the friendship to evolve into a relationship.
After many years of running the store, Von began to realize that his writing had been moved to a backburner - too much creative energy was being expended on the customers during the day and there wasn't any left at night for his own work. After putting their heads together, he and Moggy decided that he should pursue his own work.
He scaled back his hours at the bookstore and started looking closely at his journals and story ideas; however, there was a catch. Everything he'd written, every idea and every character, was highly visual. He would have to learn to draw in order to express his creative visions. At first, even drawing a simple circle was tough going-- years passed, pencils snapped, pads of paper were flipped and replaced, paint was bought, and Von gradually got better. And eventually, through hard work and determination, Von got to the point that working in comics became a reality.
Von currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, with his writer/editor geek wife, Moggy; a husky-mix, Corbin; and one feisty kitten, Mabel.
