Strangely constructed...

As the lead designer for the touring exhibit, Monsters from Outer Space, Jasim’s played the role Society has given her. That doesn’t mean she believes everything that comes out of the Supreme Potentate’s mouth. One night at work, Jasim discovers an animal from her exhibit being put through terrible experiments. She also comes face to face with the terrorist group known as the Divisionists, led by her oldest friend. Soon, Jasim is presented the opportunity to join their ranks.


And when Jasim’s young brother meets one of the animals, a species known as Human, that’s been physically manipulated, he unwittingly reveals the exhibit’s darkest secret. It quickly becomes a race just to survive, but will the personal agenda of one derail everything the Divisionists have fought for?




"Strangely Constructed Souls" is a novella I wrote for a Mary Shelly competition hosted by my local library for the anniversary of "Frankenstein." While it didn't win, I did feel there was something worth publishing. 


The concept for "Strangely Constrcuted Souls" came to me in a dream, actually, about a human zoo. So I took that idea and ran with it.
