Blog Tour (Writer's Cave): Eden's Root by Rachel Fisher

The Writer’s Cave

The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.


 Hmmm, writing about what I like to write, how deliciously self-involved!  So, what I like to write is what I like to read.  I love ya in general, but I do gravitate toward science-fiction (some fantasy), apocalyptic, and dystopian.  Otherwise, I tend to like contemporary.  I also like deep science-fiction that is not ya.

I think that through writing, I’ve come to understand my tastes even more precisely.  I tend to love sweeping epics, series, multi-person POVs, long timelines or time jumps, and general science-geekery.  I like romance, and can follow something that is heavily romantic, but I tend prefer some action with my romance.   That’s just me personally. 

I don’t know why I like apocalyptics so much, I guess it’s just my dark turn of mind.  I enjoy a good zombie apocalypse, but I have to say, I’ve always been more interested in (and frightened of) the realistic apocalpytics.  Once focused on man’s role in his own demise.  That is my sick fascination, I guess. 

I earned my undergraduate degree in Biology and I was always (and still am) drawn to the questions of bioethics.  It seems blatantly obvious to me that our technology is outstripping our moral context, and that we are essentially experimenting with ourselves as the subjects on a large scale.  Given my tendency toward dark thoughts, you’d think this might depress me, but I’m also excited to be living in these times.  I want to see how we’re going to handle growing organs for transplant in labs, and extending life and reducing aging using stem cells, and genetic typing and modification.  There are so many, many crazy things that we are able to do, and they make great fodder for books.  I just hope that we can think ourselves out of trouble, and not just into it.  That is kind of the essence of Eden’s Root.  I’m not sure if we can, but we sure gotta try, right?
