Karen A. Wyle

Author Karen A. Wyleabout this book: I have always loved sociological science fiction, so when I completed a decades-long detour back to my dream of writing novels, that's what I wrote first.

I'm particularly interested in the difficulties, the traps, the unintended consequences that come with any attempt to communicate with a profoundly different culture. At the time I conceived (so to speak) the idea for Twin-Bred, I had just read an article about how much interaction takes place between twins in utero. It occurred to me that if one could somehow arrange for members of different species to share the special bond between twins, one might be able to bridge that interspecies gap. But would the resulting twins be able to bring their species of origin together, or would they find themselves isolated from both?

My older daughter is an art student and a writer. Her experience with National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) inspired me to give it a try. Twin-Bred would never have happened without her. So it seemed only fitting that I ask her to do the cover art. I'm delighted with the result.

I've naturally had the most positive reactions from science fiction fans, but I've been pleased to hear from a few readers who usually have little interest in SF and found themselves pleasantly surprised.
