  1. mdbenoit – As long as she can remember, MD was either listening to her father's stories, or making them up herself. As a child having to do chores, many dishes were broken, or dust bunnies passed over, because she lived in her own imaginary world. Things haven't changed much since then --she still breaks dishes, and isn't much on housecleaning-- but instead of dreaming the stories, she writes them down. MD has always been fascinated by science and how the mind works. How better to combine both, than to write science fiction? Her main concern in writing stories is to explore human nature, and how science can affect people's perception of their own humanity. For the past few years, her interests have focused on genetic engineering, from Genetically Modified Organisms, to genetic warfare and cloning. Her first novel, Metered Space, is a sardonic view at such issues. What makes us human? Explore this concept by meeting a whole bunch of aliens that have no human features, but may surprise you by acting more human than the flesh-and-blood bodies. MD is the author of the SF mystery series, The Jack Meter Case Files, published by <a href="http://zumayapublications.com">Zumaya Otherworlds</a>. You can check them out on her website at <a href="http://mdbenoit.com">MD Benoit's World</a>. MD currently lives in Ottawa with her husband and her cat (who is really an alien in disguise). You can read her take on reality on her blog, <a href="http://mdbenoit.com/blog">Life's Weirder than Fiction</a>.

    Congratulations! A book deal is always exciting. I got to your blog through MetaxuCafe and a comment you made about writing and big advances. Amen! I have a similar rant on my blog –more about the assumption that any schmuck can sit down to write and make millions with drivel: http://mdbenoit.com/blog/2005/11/04/perpetuating-the-publishing-fallacy/

  2. The Masada community? Veeeeery Innnnnteresting. I’m guessing your characters will be put in a situation where they are grossly outnumbered and in dire straits and they have to decide how to deal with survival.

    My rabbi has always spoken out about how the story of Masada shouldn’t be one that Jews are proud of. We are a group of people should be proud of the times they have surived persecution not when we martyr ourselves in the face of it. Or as my father is fond of saying during every holiday ‘They tried to kill us all, they didn’t win, let’s eat”

    I’m intertested to see how you tell this story.
