(? - ) US author of two sf juveniles for Young Adult readers. The Tera Beyond (1981) is a thriller set on the planet Tera, where a student makes the Discovery, at the risk of his freedom, that microbes are inherently dual in nature, suggesting the existence of Parallel Worlds. Rather similarly, though less plausibly, A Gift of Mirrorvax (1981) contrasts the oppressively Dystopian planet Vax with its Counter-Earth Mirrorvax, in which a pacifist God-oriented society must deal with the visit of several Vaxans, including the indoctrinated young protagonist, on a mission of conquest; there is an implication that both worlds were originally colonized from Earth.
