(circa 1989- ) US author whose second novel, the Young Adult Agnes at the End of the World (2020), follows its protagonist from her upbringing, in a Near Future Dystopian Keep-like enclave dominated by a fundamentalist cleric (see Religion), into the larger world beyond, which seems about to succumb to a deadly Pandemic. But Agnes is something like a mouthpiece for Gaia, and as a kind of plague-whisperer may become a saviour of the world. [JC]
