(?   -    ) US ecologist and author whose Near Future BetterWorld Trilogy sequence beginning with Sleep State Interrupt (2016) focuses on attempts to defeat the media corporation MediaCorp whose BetterWorld, an addictive Virtual Reality site, has hypnotized the planet for the benefit of a tiny number of venture capitalists and a corrupt American president. The protagonist's attempts to awaken Homo sapiens land her first in jail then South America where, hunted by mercenaries, she and her associates attempt to penetrate the corridors of power. The presumption that, once awakened, the citizenry of the world will shrug off universal surveillance and come to its senses rests as a hope within the text. [JC]
