I am an amateur writer sharing ideas and experiences on constructing, writing and self-publishing fiction.
My first novel entitled In Vitro Lottery is now out!
“***** Great debut”
“***** Nicely paced page turner”
“***** A very good read”
“We are the last natural generation Kate. What happens next will be in the hands of others.”
Decades after the Norwegian Death killed over half the world’s population, the children of the survivors can only reproduce via complex fertility treatment. Some can afford it, but for everyone else in a vigilant and isolated Great Britain, there is the In Vitro Lottery.
Kate is happy with her own small existence working in a coastal power station, but when her numbers come up and tragedy strikes she is sent on a collision course with the clinic head Victor Pearson, the political pressure group IVFree and the Government to answer two simple questions: who really controls the future and how far will they go to protect it?
A dark and dystopian tale, In Vitro Lottery explores the consequences of when desire and grief turn to obsession, and asks at which point do scientific ethics end and pragmatic necessity begin?
