Cremer, Andrea

Tagged: Author

(1978-    ) US author of Young Adult novels, who has written at least one adult Sex fantasy as by A D Robertson; she is perhaps best known for the Nightshade sequence beginning with Nightshade (2010), set in a fantasy America where Werewolves and humans co-exist uneasily. The main protagonist of the series is a young woman whose energy and adroitness lead her into power-games and romance. Cremer is of sf interest for the Inventor's Secret sequence beginning with The Inventor's Secret (2014), set in an Alternate History version of an America whose revolution against the British ended in defeat, generating an early nineteenth century world run on Steampunk lines. The protagonist's love interests perhaps dominate. [JC]
