About Melinda Jasmine Crouchley

I'm a Pacific Northwest local with an MA in Book Publishing and BA in English from Portland State University. My first three novels, young adult science fiction books, Metal Heart, Tin Road, and Iron Curtain were accepted into the Multnomah County Library Writers Project Collection.

I recently wrapped up tenure as the Managing Editor at Ooligan Press, and I'm now working as an Editor.

I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my spouse, our daughter, our Boston Terrier Oreo Cookie, and I'm the proud steward of a Little Free Library. I love to read, write, and play Pokemon Go. Gotta catch 'em all.

Currently only published in epub, I had to convert it so I could read it on my Kindle.

Several of the plot points pivot on events that would be unlikely in a military and/or commercial dictatorship regime. This makes the book only average.

But it has lots of action, and if it was a movie would probably do very well.

I love it !

It's like Katniss Everdeen was captured by the Galra, and sent back the earth of Mad Max + Blade Runner to be the first X-Man!

Congratulations: Wouldn't call it a page turner yet, but as of now you managed to keep me going for 3 chapters, instead of the more customary 3 pages. Like the mystery.

In case you're interested in a more detailed feedback, please don't hesitate to contact me.
