Humans can't see lucents... except for Eris.
Sixteen year old Eris Payton wants more than anything to fit in - struggling to reinvent herself - when she meets Nelson, who offers an escape from her current hell into the unknown shadows of his world, and she can't say no before she learns just how different she really is... changing her life in a way she would never have imagined. Nelson, a lucent, needs Eris to follow him back to Downside before the epidemic gets worse, otherwise his brother will die, but he must convince her that he's real and that her DNA holds the key in time to save his brother and his entire race. Facing truths that challenge everything she thought she knew, Eris discovers the hidden world of lucents, her own mysterious origins, and how to trust once more. She finds herself and uncovers answers to questions she never thought to ask.
Originally from Vermont, Ann now lives in Virginia with her husband. Ann spent much of her childhood moving from place to place. Now settled, she enjoys exploring nature and the freedom to pursue the dreams of her imagination through writing.
Ann's love of books from childhood continues today -- always looking to stimulate the imagination. She knows the thrill of triumphing over adversities, pulling from life's experiences, both hers and others, for inspiration... always sharing, growing, and learning.
