Linda Harley was born in Durban, South Africa and at the age of 7 developed a love for music. Her love for playing the piano has been a great motivational factor in pursuing her research in trying to understand how humans are able to learn to perform complex tasks with both arms at the same time. She received a BS and MS in Civil Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA in 2002 and 2004, respectively and in 2011 she received her PhD in Applied Physiology from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her research interests are in understanding the mechanisms of learning to perform complex bilateral tasks and designing new technologies which would be beneficial to the field of physical rehabilitation. For example, the design of electronic games for the purpose of rehabilitation at home. She also loves writing science fiction romance novels.

Awakening is a fun sci-fi novella. A young girl awakens from a cryogenic sleep, to an apocalyptic world 158 years in the future. Working with robotic life forms she must work quickly to save what is left of humanity. This is an adventure story which revolves around the choices family members make to save one another. There is lots of heart at its center. Though some of the choices are made without much thought or moral deliberation, I still found it to be an interesting read.
