My writing career began with magazine columns, landscape design textbooks, and a gardening column at the Post and Courier (Charleston, SC). However, I've always fancied fiction.

My grandpa never graduated high school. He retired from a steel mill in the mid-70s. He was uneducated, but he was a voracious reader. I remember going through his bookshelves of paperback sci-fi novels, smelling musty old paper, pulling Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov off shelf and promising to bring them back. I was fascinated by robots that could think and act like people. What happened when they died?

I'm a cynical reader. I demand the writer sweep me into his/her story and carry me to the end. I'd rather sail a boat than climb a mountain. That's the sort of stuff I want to write, not the assigned reading we got in school. I want to create stories that kept you up late.

Having a story unfold inside your head is an experience different than reading. You connect with characters in a deeper, more meaningful way. You feel them, empathize with them, cheer for them and even mourn. The challenge is to get the reader to experience the same thing, even if it's only a fraction of what the writer feels. Not so easy.

In 2008, I won the South Carolina Fiction Open with Four Letter Words, a short story inspired by my grandfather and Alzheimer's Disease. My first step as a novelist began when I developed a story to encourage my young son to read. This story became The Socket Greeny Saga. Socket tapped into my lifetime fascination with consciousness and identity, but this character does it from a young adult's struggle with his place in the world.

After Socket, I thought I was done with fiction. But then the ideas kept coming, and I kept writing. Most of my work investigates the human condition and the meaning of life, but not in ordinary fashion. About half of my work is Young Adult (Socket Greeny, Claus, Foreverland) because it speaks to that age of indecision and the struggle with identity. But I like to venture into adult fiction (Halfskin, Drayton) so I can cuss. Either way, I like to be entertaining.

And I'm a big fan of plot twists.

Girls, waking up not knowing who they are, having no past. Learning early that they have been implanted with a device that knocks them unconscious if they wander to far from the hut. Fighting for clothes, and food with the heavy feeling of a never ending struggle to survive. But Miranda is different, she explores the high tech, well stocked house. But without knowing how long they are stuck here, can she risk sharing and how much?

Foreverland is Dead takes a darker turn pretty fast. The stink of rotting flesh and struggling just to live through the day. Its pretty obvious from the beginning there is a leader, calling all the shots. She is not about to let anybody show her up, and she'll fight to maintain her power over the other girls.

First in the series The Annihilation of Foreverland we saw a group of boys struggling with their lives, but now it's the girls turn. Each book can be read as a stand alone or any order. They are dark, with twists you won't see coming and engaging characters you want to see win in the end.

The story is very powerful and suspenseful. At times keeping the reader on the edge of their seat to see if the girls will make it out of danger, alive. It's dark and incredibly imaginative, violent and creepy. PG-16

I don't know what to talk about first. My head is still spinning from this novel and not exactly in a good way. My first thoughts ... sigh. Okay. When I first read the blurb on Foreverland is Dead, I was really excited. This sounded like a dystopian novel ... I LOVE dystopian novels lately. And this one sounded like it had some crazy twists ... I do love twists!

Then I started reading. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm expecting too much with books today. Maybe that's what it is, my expectations are too high. I want to pick up a book and be transported. I want to go to another time or place and be swept up in what is going on in these pages. I don't want to think, I want to be overwhelmed. I want to feel something towards these characters ... I want to hate, love, dislike, despise, adore ... I don't care what emotion, really. I just want the characters to come alive.

At the end of the book, there is a MAJOR twist. And if I'm being completely honest, this twist was totally lost on me because I couldn't remember exactly who a certain character was. Really?!? I wanted to throw a massive temper tantrum and go kick someone in shin. I felt like I was let down. Granted, that may be my own fault. Maybe I didn't pay attention. Maybe it was the beginning of the book that lost me.

At the beginning, I was a little thrown off by the haltingly way that the book was written. It felt like the author was trying to use the least amount of words possible for each sentence. The sentences were cut off, not in a way that left a fragmented sentence, but in a way that I felt I was only getting part of the information. The book read like it wanted to be more ... does that even make sense?!? I have another one of my crazy analogies for you ...

What a great sequel! I loved the Annihilation of Foreverland, and this book expands on its main story without repeating anything from the original plot. It never occurred to me to wonder where the girls were. They were never on the island, and they had to be somewhere. This is their story, in a new setting with really interesting characters. Each of the girls has a distinct personality, and they are some tough girls!

While this is science fiction, there are also elements of mystery and creepiness that enhance the whole story. The characters struggle with questions about the nature of reality and the elements of personal identity, all within the story. Nothing slows the pace of the book. Best of all, I didn't see even a hint of the ending coming. This book is well written and entertaining reading.

Straight up: you are going to get to the end of this book, and let out a little squeally gasp reserved for something slimy slithering down the back of your shirt. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Tony Bertauski has the uncanny ability to split and sustain a climax over a sequence of several events. You're hoping the heroine makes it out alive...the tension drops and immediately begins to rise...you're hoping the heroine manages to save the rest...then the third time, you're hoping the heroine has the ability to lay a whooping on that guy.

In Foreverland is Dead, Tony Bertauski creates a world that was first intimated in Annihilation of Foreverland. While this place is alluded to, it is only a small element of that tale. This world is entirely different, and lends a new meaning to `the cold, harsh world'. Annihilation of Foreverland isn't required reading to enjoy Foreverland is Dead and it doesn't matter which you read first. The plots are completely distinct and where the stories overlap, they are not hindered by too much or too little information.

While Annihilation of Foreverland ponders some philosophical ideas, Foreverland is Dead contemplates them with much greater earnestness. Tony Bertauski presents concepts that have been the burden of philosophers since man began thinking. He explores the meaning and complexity of self and reality. He asks who are we, and who we are at the same time.

What does it mean to `be'? Do we consist solely of our bodies? Or are we the thing inside? What comprises the borders of our selves? Are we nothing more than the sum of our memories, and if so what becomes of us if our memories are lost?

What defines reality?
