Singleton, Linda Joy

Tagged: Author

(1957-    ) US author of paranormal romances for the Young Adult market, including the My Sister, the Ghost sequence, the Seer sequence and the Dead Girl sequence (none of these are listed below). Of sf interest is the Regeneration sequence beginning with Regeneration (2000) as L J Singleton, whose five volumes follow the fraught childhood and adolescence of five Clones whose "maker", in the belief that they are failures embarrassing to his reputation as a genetic engineer (see Genetic Engineering), is attempting to have them killed off. One of these potential victims, having been cloned from a serial killer, flees into isolation out of fear that he will replicate his father's behaviour. Each story is well-constructed, and very fully plotted. [JC]
