"The light spilled in through her tall oval window, which faced east, away from the City, over a high blue plateau smoked with gray clumps of scrub. The mild, orange sun of Nexus, huge to her eyes, hung low over yellow-brown mountains. The mountains shimmered—the effect of the climate shield, she knew, that kept dust outside the city and humidity inside. . . ."
—The Hidden Worlds, Chapter 5
About Kristin Landon
A lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, Kristin Landon has been reading science fiction since the age of seven, when she discovered H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds (this exact edition) in the school library. Science fiction led her to science, and she earned a degree in chemistry and worked as a research lab technician for a number of years before following her talent for writing and editing into a new career in technical publishing. In addition to her novel writing, she works as a freelance copyeditor of medical, scientific, and technical books.
Her published novels thus far comprise the Hidden Worlds trilogy: The Hidden Worlds, The Cold Minds, and The Dark Reaches.
Kristin lives with her husband, any children who might be visiting, and a spaniel named Lucy.
