These interviews provide some additional reader background and context to Helix Genesis. I originally wrote them to develop the characters and specifically “hear” their voices. By having a conversation with them about their lives what they were doing during and immediately after the pandemic, I discovered how their experiences shaped them into the people they are.
My second objective was to gain a better understanding of the physical environment in which the drama unfolds. The world depicted is different in many ways and familiar in others. At its extremes, it is order and chaos and it is the narrow path between both that Helix and Gabrielle must walk.
