Born just outside of Washington, DC, Meridel Newton has loved fantasy and science fiction for as long as she can remember, and started writing her own stories from a very young age. Though she picked up many interests over the years, from geology to Japanese, writing remained a steady constant throughout her life. She wrote The Puppet Kingdom, her first novel, while living in Japan. The upcoming sequel has been a trans-oceanic undertaking, but it is finally nearing completion.
Meridel went to Bryn Mawr College and holds a Master of Science degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. When she is not writing, she is working as an advocate for renewable energy and for a transformed energy policy leading to a zero-carbon future.

The entire planet of Morthos was partially destroyed in a few hours. Shreevani refugees have claimed asylum & seek help from the government. Nemecree came to live with my family because he lost all his family. I was in MS when he died.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written futuristic schifi or paranormal short story (book). It wasn’t always easy to read/follow from start/finish, but never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great set of characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. Not sure I grasped the full story content .That said I will have to rate it at 4/5 stars.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
