(1985- ) US attorney and author whose Young Adult Dystopian sequence, the Registry series beginning with The Registry (2013), is set in a Near Future America where young women are treated in a manner evocative of the role of Women in SF predicted by Margaret Atwood in The Handmaid's Tale (1985). At the age of eighteen, nubile females are auctioned off as breeders. The young protagonist learns from her older sister that there are strings attached, and decides she wishes to be free and escapes to Mexico with her two young male companions and a price on her head, and bounty hunters tracking her down. It may be that her example will cause a revolution back in America. [JC]
