(1957-    ) US author whose Jaguar Addams sequence beginning with The Fear Principle (1998), a Space Opera set initially on a Prison satellite where the protagonist Jaguar Addams uses her Telepathic powers in attempts to cure inmates, some of whom are psychotic, some obsessed by Religion. Later volumes of the sequence, some set back on Earth, become complicated with romance elements and the murder of at least one family member. Children of the Land (2014), a singleton, which is set in what may be a distant Near Future, describes a Dystopian world ruled by a tyrant with the gift of Immortality; in The Aquarius Project (2020), a woman with Psi Powers becomes involved with a group of women (see Feminism; Women in SF) who want to take over the world.
