Seventeen-year-old Thalli lives in a society where emotion is considered a flaw. The Scientists, the leaders of her post-apocalyptic world, have created a generation of people who do not feel emotion. Thalli, however, is an anomaly–she does have emotions. She’s been forced to hide her emotions in fear that she’ll be taken away and annihilated like one of her friends was years ago. When The Scientists finally learn of Thalli’s anomaly status, they plan to annihilate her. But her childhood friend, Berk, who is training to be a Scientist, comes up with a plan to keep Thalli alive as long as possible.
Let me start off by saying I’m a die-hard Star Wars fan. I own all six movies and have seen them more times than I care to count. I think I can recite every line from memory. There’s something just so endearing about the series. They’re clean, old-fashioned, fun adventure movies with a classic good-versus-evil storyline.
So when I learned that the seventh installment was coming out, I was a little apprehensive. I mean, this is the twenty-first century. Profanity, sexuality, graphic violence, and liberal thinking are present in almost all movies these days. Would the biggest movie of 2015 revive the charm of the Star Wars saga, or turn into something less than appealing?
Hello, everyone! I had the opportunity of interviewing David Fessenden, author of Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract and the novel The Case of the Exploding Speakeasy, a fun historical mystery. I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Fessenden at a writer’s conference. He has a great sense of humor, both in person and in his books (I’m noticing a common theme in books I like to read…hmm…).
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and has a Happy New Year!
