But when Levi, a peaceful stranger, refuses alteration, Tula doesn’t think the only options should be conversion or death…

About the Author

Born and raised in Alaska, Tam Linsey was the kid who took AP Chemistry and AP Biology her Senior year of High School. After winning a scholarship to a DOE camp at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, touring the superconducting supercollider, and karyotyping DNA from the HIV virus, she came to realize if she pursued biomedical engineering, she might never see the outside of a lab again.

Consequently, she earned a Bachelor of Science in English, and now writes about fictional characters who have taken biomedical engineering to extremes.

She is also an avid gardener, cook, fisherman and hunter, urban homesteader, and GMO labeling advocate in love with self-sufficiency. Her current residence is the great state of Alaska, where she was born and now lives with her husband and two wonderful children


She will also be at a book signing at Gulliver’s Books here in Fairbanks from 6-9 PM! (the northernmost, full service bookstore in America!)September 13th!
