After 20 years of working as a biogeochemist and oceanographer, Christina De La Rocha had a mid-life crisis, flew the coop of her career, landed in Germany, and decided to learn how to write.
So far she’s published a couple of short stories in Analog, and one book of popular science (Silica Stories) and, rural life being what it is, now spends more time with birds than with people.
Her latest work of fiction, Mirrors Above the Sky, weaves twelves tales of chimeras and clones, climate change saboteurs, influencers on the Moon, androids delivering elder care, giant photosynthetic alien birds, and an angel of mercy on the loose in a surreal battlefield hospital.
It is available now on Smashwords.
