About Emily Devenport

I've been published under three pen names: as Emily Devenport, I wrote SHADE, LARISSA, SCORPIANNE, EGGHEADS, THE KRONOS CONDITION, and GODHEADS. As Maggy Thomas, I wrote BROKEN TIME, which was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award. As Lee Hogan I wrote BELARUS and ENEMIES. My books have been published in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, and Israel. I'm writing as Emily Devenport again, and I have two new titles out from Smashwords: THE NIGHT SHIFTERS and SPIRITS OF GLORY.

I'm also an undergraduate studying Geology and a volunteer at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.

Review by: Sky Barnes on Feb. 16, 2013 :
This unexpectedly combined several genres I read: Far future space opera done with logical strangeness and well-written humanity and world building mixed with espionage-laced-intrigue and a serial killer mystery. Even a hint of romance. It has it all and it delivers, with a word count that allows it not to skimp. This was one of Ms. Devenport's works that I hadn't read upon its original release, but the quality of writing is as good as all of her other works. I look forward to reading the novel, Enemies, for which this is a stand-alone prequel, when and if it is e-released.

Brilliant AND amazing value (I bought it for $1 US)! Believable characters, sweeping scope, several nice twists, and the way is left open for more.
