Can’t get enough dystopia? Then tune in to Writestream Tuesday on September 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I’ll interview Buddhapuss author Tracy Lawson about her debut novel, Counteract:
Two strangers-their destinies entwined-must work together to thwart a terrorist the country never suspected.
The Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism for the last fifteen years with the full backing of the US government. Their carefully crafted list of Civilian Restrictions means no concerts or sporting events, no travel, no social media, no cash transactions, and no driver’s licenses for eighteen-year-olds Tommy and Careen. The OCSD has even outlawed grocery stores, all in the name of safety.
Now, there’s a new threat-airborne chemical weapons that could be activated at any time. But the OCSD has an antidote: Just three drops a day is all it takes to stay safe. It’s a small price to pay for safety.
Or is it…
Sounds hauntingly familiar, doesn’t it?
Here’s a bit about Tracy from her bio at Tracy Lawson Books.com:
Tracy knew she wanted to be a writer from the time she could read. She grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and attended Princeton High School. While in a student there, she turned her writing efforts toward journalism. She was an editor for the school newspaper, news director for the Princeton Instructional Television station, and also worked as a reporter and feature writer for the Suburban Press weekly newspaper.
She graduated summa cum laude from Ohio University in 1988, with a Bachelor of Science in Communications degree.
After working for a time in advertising and as an investigative analyst for the Florida Board of Bar Examiners, Tracy settled into a career in the performing arts, teaching dance and choreographing musicals.
Tracy has had a long-time interest in her family’s history and genealogy, and she never lost the desire to write.
