She currently works as a freelance writer, artist, and voice actress during the evening and an insurance broker during the day.

I have a few minor quibbles, but they don't really affect the story. In the book, 80% of the population dies within days when heating systems fail. In the 1998 icestorm, there were only dozens of deaths from hypothermia, while everyone else wore their winter jackets indoors and were uncomfortable but alive. It may have been more plausible to have the setting cleared by starvation rather than freezing. However, other than a few minor details like that, I enjoyed it. Definitely worth the price.
