At the Other End:
Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.

Thalli is different than others in The State. She feels things. She asks questions. And in the State, this is not tolerated. The Ten scientists who survived the nuclear war that destroyed the world above believe that emotion was at the core of what went wrong—and they have genetically removed it from the citizens they have since created. Thalli has kept her malformation secret from those who have monitored her for most of her life, but when she receives an ancient piece of music to record as her community’s assigned musician, she can no longer keep her emotions secreted away.

Seen as a threat to the harmony of her Pod, Thalli is taken to the Scientists for immediate annihilation. But before that can happen, Berk—her former Pod mate who is being groomed as a Scientist—steps in and persuades the Scientists to keep Thalli alive as a test subject.

The more time she spends in the Scientist’s Pod, the clearer it becomes that things are not as simple as she was programmed to believe. She hears stories of a Designer—stories that fill her mind with more questions: Who can she trust? What is this emotion called love? And what if she isn’t just an anomaly, but part of a greater design?

Author Bio...
Krista McGee’s passion to see teens excited about serving God is a driving force behind her novels. Ever since college when she spent a summer working at a youth camp, McGee knew she wanted to invest in teenagers. Since then she’s been involved in a variety of youth ministries and currently teaches at a Christian school in Tampa, FL.

McGee broke into the writing world during her time in Spain. A friend encouraged her to submit an article to a Christian girls’ magazine, and it got published. Once her family moved back to Tampa, she got the idea for her first novel, First Date, a modern take of the story of Esther. Her subsequent books, Starring Me and Right Where I Belong, are based on Rebekah and Ruth.

When Krista McGee isn’t living in fictional worlds of her own creation, she spends her days as a wife, mom, teacher and coffee snob.

Birth of Anomaly

“Would you be willing to switch genres - to science fiction?”
This question, posed in an email by my editor at Thomas Nelson over a year ago, brought about a mixture of excitement, fear, and awe. Switch genres? I’d only just begun writing contemporary fiction. The question hung in cyberspace, haunting me. Could I switch genres? I felt (still feel) so insecure about my writing. And some of my all-time favorite authors write science fiction, some of my all-time favorite books are in that genre: Ted Dekker’s Circle trilogy, CS Lewis’ space trilogy, Brave New World….I can’t do THAT!!
But God delights in using the improbable. I have seen that over and over again. None of my English teachers from high school would have ever guessed I would grow up to be an English teacher, and they sure wouldn’t have guessed I’d be a writer. But that’s what God does – He uses us in ways we never expected so that we know it is through His power and a result of His grace that we accomplish His plans.

So I said, “Sure” (sounding far more confident than I felt!), and I began to draft ideas for what would become the Anomaly trilogy. This is something I think I have always secretly wanted to do, but never thought I really could do. I am humbled and encouraged that the amazing team at Thomas Nelson believed in me more than I believed in myself.
