Development Pitch

In a world reduced to walled cities of survivors, only the pure are allowed into mainstream society. Anyone displaying signs of genetic mutation is immediately ripped from their homes and cast into a Compound. Here they are tattooed, forever marking them as an outcast. On the day of their sixteenth birthday, they are forced into the Trials and tested for the extent of their mutation. If they Fail they will be Banished into the wilderness of a world three hundred years after the DNA Wars, a certain and unpleasant death. Keira has lived in Keimusho Red Compound all her life, training with her knives, hoping she will survive her sixteenth birthday. Born with orange eyes, she’d been taken from her family too early to remember them, cast into the compound with all the other twists. But when her best friend is taken by the guards she must decide; rescue him and expose a mutation she has kept carefully hidden and risk immediate execution or leave him to die. I left the ending open. They arrive at the 'City of Lights', where mutants are free.....but lots of room for an ongoing series or second book. I mean, a movie or series with genetically mutated people.... not x-men.....strange powers yes but with a little more science.

About The Author

As an avid consumer of all things sci-fi and fantasy it is no surprise I had to write a story myself. While I currently work in retail I would love to become a full time writer. A note from the author: The idea of engineering human DNA is not a new concept. We hesitate on the threshold even now. Why not make a child’s life better by removing the markers for asthma or dementia or small ears? It is a Pandora’s box that I find both fascinating and terrifying. There are no limits to what can be done or what might happen as a result. “In 2012, genetics took another leap. Using a technology called CRISPR, scientists can now reliably and cheaply cut and paste in DNA for the first time. Changing the DNA sequencing of a living thing used to a massive, labor intensive project; now it can be done quickly by graduate students in a good biolab.” Source: www.Newsweek.com, April 30, 2016 As we watch the news and consider what separates one quality of person from another, as we pigeon hole people into categories of class or education or social status….perhaps we need to take a step back and re-evaluate what’s really important. Before too long we made need to classify: What is human?
