(? - ) US interactive game designer and author who is of sf interest for her first novel, The Luminous Dead (2019), is set mostly Underground on a planet exploited primarily for its mineral deposits (see Colonization of Other Worlds); the protagonist, contracted to explore yet unknown cave systems for further resources, finds herself caught between the chthonic "Monsters" she discovers, and the ruthless corporation that employs her. Her subsequent realization that others have preceded her into the planet vividly intensifies (see Horror in SF) the claustrophobia that naturally threatens her as she penetrates further and further through darkness into a possessed world.
