I love writing to music. It keeps my inner editor quiet and I can just focus on getting the words on the page.  This is particularly important for first drafts.  I’m a third of the way through my second draft of my current work in progress, a science fiction novel. The working title is Legacy Code: SunPath (Book 1).

Soren may be the last human colony in the universe, but the Framework ensures humanity’s purity and survival. Everyone is assigned their place in the Framework at birth and all are cared for as long as they do their part. But far below the glittering Towers, a forgotten people live in the abandoned sub-city. There, the tunnelings struggle to survive by scavenging Framework cast-offs and the only laws are what the clans controlling each sector say they are.

Eliana, an orphaned tunneling, loses everything she has when she stumbles into a Framework resistance movement.

Gideon, the powerful Head Enforcer’s son, works to root out the resistance and hunts her while dealing with a shameful medical condition. When they meet, the strange connection that forms between them shatters lies and puts everyone and everything they care about in danger.
