(? - ) US author whose first novel, the non-fantastic A Hundred Thousand Worlds (2016), weaves a complex family romance into an on-the-road hegira to a Comics Convention, whose rule-bound mores are both constrictive and liberating. He is of sf interest for his second novel, The Nobody People (2019), which depicts a father and his family coping first with the realization that his teen-aged daughter Emmeline possesses Superpowers, and then that she belongs to an emerging Pariah Elite of those similarly endowed. As the American government begins to pass oppressive legislation, the focus shifts to Emmeline and her kith as they grapple – successfully – with this world. This tale opens the Resonant Duology which continues and concludes with The Somebody People (2020). [JC]
