My debut novel, Fear My Mortality, is set in an alternate world.
It’s a version of what the world might look like today if human beings were immortal from the beginning.
Immortality changes the way the people in Fear My Mortality live their lives and what they believe and value. But with any variation of events, there are a thousand possible outcomes and so many different ways a world like that could operate.
I wanted to write a version of the world that looks a lot like our world today but with some distinct differences, the biggest ones being war and morality, with their technology not so far from ours.
And I wanted it to have a cracking pace 🙂
Some other alternate world books I’ve read and loved – or would love to read – are …
His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik;
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman; and
Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
