More About the Author

Carolyn Holland grew up during the 70's in the coastal wetlands of North Carolina in a small, rural fishing village. She married right after high school and started her family, in the same community where she grew up. Though life took her to other places, she lived in the Appalachians for a time and later in Alabama, she found herself drawn back to her roots in Coastal North Carolina. With her three children grown now, she resides there still with her husband James Holland, a retired US Marine.
Carolyn has been a writer for many years. In 2009 she began work as a freelance writer and ghost writer and worked on many works in the science fiction genre. Her own personal interest in agriculture, the environment and our effect upon it prompted a lot of study into the effect of weather patterns brought on by climate change on our food and water supply.
In 2012, Carolyn was invited by publishers; Books, Authors and Artists, to write and publish the trilogy titled The Genesis Project. The first book in that series is titled, Seeds of Transition and will be available at most online book stores in E-Book and Paperback form on July 19, 2013.

Seeds of Transition is a familiar story, or at least one that many authors are currently attempting to write. With our planet undergoing weather changes and food shortage around the world, there are a dozen reasons for each of us to be concerned about our future. Thus this story takes into account the emotions of the author, which are timely, honest, and legitimate in every regard. We're ever hopeful that heroes will arise and give faith and new direction to survivors. This has been the case with terrorism, the World Trade Center and tsunamis throughout Asia. That is why I was delighted with the direction this story took. Holland knows how to express herself through well-chosen words, colorful scenes and interesting characters. She has an active imagination that will go far in future books. However, the "Genesis Project" is just that. A short beginning that needs greater attention to details, consistency between chapters, and a qualified editor to prevent distracting errors. I would have loved to have given this book 5 stars due to the subject matter and overall intent of the author. Unfortunately, I have no choice when asked for an honest opinion other than to provide a fair rating.

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.
The temperature all over the world is rising and causing all kinds of storms. It is having a big effect on the food. There are like 10 billion people in the world and not enough food to go around or at the least there is a shortage. The change in climate is effecting the growth of food. Fruits and meat are getting very hard to come by. You almost have to be rich just to be able to buy any kind of meat. The average working class family could not afford it. And without meat the children are getting sick. The US has started a recruitment to bring people from all over the world to America to help with their new project of growing food for everyone.
Ghazi and his brothers stand in line for a few days waiting to get in and signed up and hopefully are picked to go to America. When they get the news that they have been chosen to go to America they are ecstatic. Once they arrive in America they would then have jobs waiting for them. Ghazi had lost his job and couldn't find another one and this is why he wanted to take his family to America. Ghazi with his wife, Alala and his son Jarood along with his brothers and their families were all chosen to go to America and work. Years later Jarod was recruited by the president to help with a secret project called The Genesis Project. The Genesis Project is a new way they had come up with to grow food as they couldn't grow it in the soil anymore because the change in climate made it impossible.
Ramos had served two terms as governor of Florida and not only did the residents of Florida like how Ramos ran his office but the majority of America did as well.

Seeds of Transition tells the story of an ever-changing Earth were food scarcity and weather changes are affecting the lives of the people and how unexpected heroes will rise to help solve the problem. Even thou is a short book it contains a lot of interesting material to keep you entertain to the end. I found the concept of the book very interesting and believable, which The Genesis Project (a project/ not the title) being what the story is about and how it fuels the story. The flaws of this book were the lack of fluidity through the chapters, editing issues (text alignment/misspelled words, lack of punctuation) and how it gave you the feeling that some characters were left behind and not talk about anymore. For example, I would have liked to know what happened to the parents of Dr. Farra and US President Ramos (loved the ideas of a latino president, being a latina and all). Overall, the intriguing plot got the best of the story. I'm interested in how this new world would develops and what great stories it will tell. 3.5 stars . Won through Goodread first-reads for honest review

SEEDS OF TRANSITION has several themes that at fist seem disjointed and unconnected. The author does not help the reader in connecting these themes, but real life experiences are not morphed into a single theme, are they? I gave the book a high rating because the mechanics of good writing are fine, the read is easy, and the book teaches important lessons to its readers.

The book opening is exciting. In the year 2030 a perfect storm cyclone hits Bangladesh, but. the people are prepared and take shelter in an organized manner. The climate changes and weather patterns cause the land to be unable to grow enough food crops to feed all the people. In the USA, Project Genesis has been secretly started aimed to vertical crop growing because world starvation is imminent. In 2057, Jarrod, a Muslim immigrant who lived through the cyclones in Bangladesh, becomes a part of the project. At this point those themes I mentioned are introduced. The author gives detailed descriptions of the project and its importance to the world, but some entity is trying to sabotage the project for reasons not told. Jarrod falls in love, but the affair is sabotaged until later, much later, the couple reunites. The President of the United States, an advocate of Project Genesis, is assassinated, but not killed. Two characters are introduced who have a malevolent intent toward the President and the project. The book ends with more questions than a two year old. But the stage has been properly set for the sequel which I want to read as soon as it becomes available. I forgot to mention the perfect storm twin hurricanes that hit the east coast, chiefly the Carolinas, in May, 2057.
