(1981-    ) Canadian author who began to publish work of genre interest with "The Adventurer's Wife " in She Walks in Shadows (anth 2015) edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R Stiles. Designed for a Young Adult market, her Beneath the Rising sequence, an Alternate History series beginning with Beneath the Rising (2020) Equipoisally exposes its young protagonists – one of whom has invented a new Power Source – to dark forces and greedy elder gods (see Cthulhu Mythos). In the sequel, A Broken Darkness (2021), young genius inventor Johnny inadvertently opens Portals [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] that once again expose the world to profound evil (see Horror in SF), threatening her and all humanity.

Mohamed's singleton are of a similar interest. The Apple-Tree Throne (2018 ebook) portrays an Alternate History England whose preternatural Steampunk clemency derives from non-destructive Power Sources. In the double narrative of These Lifeless Things (2021),

a Near Future diarist's depiction of a world attempting to recover from an Alien intervention is contrasted with the attempts on the part of an Anthropologist, many decades hence (see Ruins and Futurity), to understand the nature of the catastrophe. The Annual Migration of Clouds (2021), set in a Near Future Canadian West devastated by Climate Change and a fungal Pandemic, again focuses on intimate traumas of survival of its protagonist, who is bound by conviction and loyalty to her family as the world suffers intense transmogrifications. And What Can We Offer You Tonight (2021) a murder and resurrection mystery set among luxury courtesans in a Dystopian Far Future City, won a Nebula and a World Fantasy Award as best novella. [JC]
