(? - ) US author whose Young Adult sf novel Game Slaves (2014) begins inside an extremely advanced Videogame featuring AI-run action stars, one of whom comes to consciousness within this frame. Her conviction that she is more than a Computer program, and that there is a world beyond the Virtual Reality she inhabits (see the film Matrix), the protagonist engineers an escape, finding herself no longer a Hero but a body floating in a tank. The world she and her team eventually discover is a desolate Near Future Dystopia, with Climate Change raging, the rich in Keeps and the poor outside the walls, where cannibals roam. [JC]
