The children of the Alpha5, the top 5 conglomerates in Egalia, find themselves up for public scrutiny when the news of their genetically selected origins is leaked to the public. Impossibly good looking, intelligent and heirs to the biggest fortunes in Egalia, the secret of their births has caused intense backlash. Not only do the public loathe them, they represent a betrayal of The Genetic Lottery, the system that forms the backbone of Egalian society. The Genetic Lottery promises every couple a child, free from all markers of genetic disease, but the Alpha5 children have far exceeded those parameters. Luckily, a revolutionary leader emerges, promising to tilt back the playing field with his cutting-edge technology, the Infinity Chip. Alex Etak promises to soothe the public furore and take down the genetically superior species by equipping the masses but does he have a separate agenda himself?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I think fantasy is easier to write than any other genre because the sky is the limit. As long as it makes sense in the world you created, you can do whatever you want.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
No matter how many rejections you get, there is a place in the literary world for your book. Never give up!

Author Bio:
Heather McLaren is a Cherokee writer living in southern Illinois with her husband and four children. She began her life in an unfortunate situation, much like thousands of children in this country. She was born to a fifteen-year-old mother who could not take care of her. After living in foster homes for two years, at the age of four, a loving couple adopted Heather, but feeling unwanted and rejected never left her mind. Who was she? Where did she come from? But Heather was lucky to have found her new parents. They helped her realize her own potential. They told Heather the sky was the limit when it came to what she could accomplish in life.
Over the years, Heather’s struggles mounted. She escaped an abusive marriage and lost a baby to RH incompatibility before turning 21. On May 17, 2002, Heather gave birth to Kimber Liliana—a child the doctors said could never survive the stroke she had suffered in the womb. After seven long months in the neonatal wing at Cardinal Glennon and then Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, Heather brought Kimber home to the amazement of the doctors. Though Kimber is still bedridden from spastic cerebral palsy, she celebrated her eleventh birthday last May—a joyous event Heather never takes for granted.
At the age of twenty-six doctors diagnosed Heather with bipolar disorder, but instead of giving in to her disease, she picked herself up, met and married her soul mate and began writing fantasy novels. Heather McLaren wants others in her situation—either adopted and looking for answers, families of disabled children or sufferers of mental illness—to see her own success story as evidence that life does prevail. They can have active and fulfilling lives no matter the difficulties they may face.
Heather’s passion for writing began at an early age. As far back as she can remember she wanted to publish a novel she could call her own. She wrote the outlines for books one (Mythos) and two (Beyond Legend) of the Mer Chronicles series during free time in tenth grade creative writing class, but it took many years for her to find the courage to send her completed novels to publishers. Now that Heather has found her niche in today’s literary world, she plans on bringing fantasy into the lives of our youth for years to come.
When asked if she created her characters to inspire others, Heather immediately had an answer. ABSOLUTELY! She wanted to embrace her husband’s kind and protective nature, thus bringing David Cooley’s character to life. (Her son) Bryce’s loyalty shines through as David’s best friend, and (her daughter) Charlie’s innocent and inquisitive nature and (her step daughter) Dakota’s playfulness triumph in future books. Heather’s youngest child’s bravery and determination to live despite her handicap was inspiration enough to immortalize her in black and white. By creating Cindel’s character (for Kimber), Heather hopes that readers will see people with special needs as having the same potential as everyone else.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Mermaid have always been my favorite mythological creature. I started the outline for Mythos and the second book in the Mer chroncles, Beyond Legend, in high school. It was only a matter of time before I finally got the courage to write them.

Only one will attain the coveted Oscar trophy and return to Sugar Valley to tell about the horrors they went through. Fame and fortune, wealth and power, come with more than a price. And in the end, they learn that it is only the beginning of a story that the business never wanted to get out. All they knew of was a Valley they called ‘Sugar’ that they fought to leave to attain their desires. And now, all they want to do is return to it, for what they had all along with Sugar Valley was the greatest dream of all; harmony.
