Linda M. Whitaker
...is a retail data scientist, and a writer of science and technology thrillers. By day I play with numbers, by night, with words.
I have a PhD in Operations Research from Georgia Tech, and have worked in Retail Technology for many years. I am awestruck by the evolution of technology, which probably explains why my first novel is a science and technology thriller.
My husband and I like to live in fun places surrounded by interesting people. We’ve lived in many places, but currently reside in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We love this colorful area with its awesome local food and breweries, beautiful land, and friendly people.
The Crucible of Steele
My first novel, The Crucible of Steele is finally out!
To secure the earth for the perfect few, they need to rid the world of the imperfect many. Only one of their own can stop them ....
At thirty-two, Georgia Steele has made her mark on the corporate world, exposing inefficiencies, incompetence, and even criminal activity. A multi-racial orphan in search of blood relatives, her keen ability to uncover hidden information has failed in her personal life. That is, until a brief encounter with a near-twin leads Georgia to discover she has family, but not in the traditional sense. She is the product of a 150-year eugenics experiment.
Things escalate once she learns the organization responsible for her creation is no longer willing to simply watch the “average” human majority destroy the planet and has ambitions far beyond that of the production of a superior race. Georgia must decide – join her true family or to try to stop them before many innocent people are killed and humanity forever changed.
I'll get back to you ASAP!
