Biography

Carolyn O'Doherty

Carolyn O'Doherty lives and works in Portland, OR, where, most disappointingly, time moves only at a very predictable pace. When not writing, she uses her free time to develop affordable housing. Carolyn earned degrees in both psychology and urban planning so she figures the best possible use of an expertise in both people and places is to make up entirely new ones.

Alex is a Spinner --- she has the ability to rewind time to review past events. Hated and feared because of their ability to find the truth, Spinners are restricted to compounds created to house and protect them. Alex's society uses the Spinners' skills to solve crimes, but messing with time comes with consequences: no Spinner lives past the age of 20. At 16, Alex is in her prime...until time sickness strikes. When she is offered treatment, Alex sees a future for herself for the first time, but the medication offers more than just a cure --- it also brings with it dire consequences.
