Welcome Alicia Michaels – Author of The Bionics Series

Do you have a writing pattern (place, time, etc.) that you follow each day or does the writing decide what type of day it will be?
I wish I lived the ideal ‘writer’s’ life. I wish I could tell you that every day I get to write in a beautiful room full of books, at a large, ornate desk and comfy chair, with a steaming cup of coffee or tea by my side. In my ideal writing room, in this world of peace and quiet that does not exist, there is a large, bay window with window seat overlooking a picturesque view. The words flow from my fingertips like water, and my days go by in a relaxed, serene setting as I churn out brilliance.
The reality couldn’t be further from that. In the real world, three children wreak havoc in my house and have two rambunctious dogs as their accomplices. My view is of a messy living room littered with toys, bottles, sippy cups, and crushed up Goldfish crackers. The coffee at my side is probably cold, because I only got a few sips of it before I had to go rushing off to fix some crisis or another. Some days I can only write one paragraph at a time, and other days I can sneak in writing marathons during naptime.
Instead of being frustrated over the chaos that rules my life, I try to revel in it. Because, when I do, it makes me grateful for every stolen moment and for every written word. I forces me to make the most of the time spent in front of my laptop and in the company of my characters. In these times, I have learned to make every single second, every letter punched on the keyboard, count.

But the nuclear war that laid waste to our country destroyed any hope I had of being normal ever again. They took everything away from me, including my humanity. I am now half-human, half-machine, part of the never-ending freak show that is the Restoration Project.
They hate what they created and they fear us for being powerful.
And so they hunt us, destroying our lives so that they can bury what they built. What they don’t know is this: there is a Resistance out there and The Bionics aren’t going down without a fight.

Synopsis: We stand on the brink of a double rescue mission, a plan so foolhardy that even our bravest men are quaking inside with fear. Storm the capitol, free the prisoners, don’t get killed. It seems like a suicide mission, but not a single one of us has anything to lose.
In my past life, I was a scoundrel; a drug peddling street thug who cared nothing for anyone because I had no one to care for me. The nuclear blasts of 4006 reminded me of the value of life, and a girl with the saddest eyes I’ve ever gazed into gave me someone to care for. Now, as we embark on our most dangerous enterprise, I can only hope that we make it out alive and that those we have lost can be recovered.
Foolishness … fear … hope … These are the elements that threw our revolution into motion. As the momentum of the Resistance continues to build, we can only pray that hope continues grow larger than our fear.
