Looking to Critique

I'm currently writing...

about a futuristic society that seems almost too perfect. The story is told through the eyes of Perla who begins to see flaws in the Committee System that protects the seven sectors of the world. She’s recruited to be part of an internship program where she meets other teenagers who question their society and they’re given a chance to help change things.

My writing influences are...

Ender’s Game, 1984, The Hunger Games, Seven Longings of the Human Heart. I love history, but also thinking of alternate timelines.

Books I enjoy reading

I enjoyed The Hunger Games, the first book because the character was well developed. I didn’t like the sense of hopelessness that prevailed in the other books, but the character was consistent.

More About Me

I’ve taught high school social studies and English for nine years and my motivation to write comes from my students.
