Author of the Fractured Era book series

Progress Requires Sacrifice

Born Defective. Imprisoned and Tortured. Now all she wants is revenge.

No one knows what really goes on in the Protected Camps... except the Protecteds. It's a secret that can't get out. Test Subject 318 wants to die. But if she dies, she's taking him with her.

"An excellent short story. Dark. In a few well-written pages of tight dialogue and descriptive sentences Ms. Kalquist shows us how out of fear we dehumanize those who may be different and justify atrocities."

"Autumn grabs you by the seat of the pants and throws you right into the thick of things quickly... I am anxious to continue the rest of the series NOW!!! Great story!"
