About The Book
Title: Code Human
Author: N.J. Paige
Genre: YA Science-Fiction
A few days ago, I was living the life of the privileged elite—now I may not live through the night…
In a dystopian world, far in the future, seventeen-year-old, Fenesia Thornbark, loses her home, her way of life, and most of her friends and family, all at the hands of people she once trusted. With her parents dead, Fenesia is now responsible for her younger sister’s life, as well as that of several other orphaned children they meet along the way, while trying to find the resistance group who is fighting the corrupt government. As she struggles to survive in a hostile environment that is unfamiliar to her, Fenesia is transformed into an unapologetic killer—something she had never imagined possible in her former privileged life.
The Kakus have seen what Father has done. There is no turning back now. We are now enemies of our state, our country. They begin to fire at us, nearly hitting Mother in the head when a bullet grazes the wood beam she is standing by. She screams! And we go back toward the kitchen door. Moe, JoeJohn, and Sam the jeweler each meet us, bearing their own rifles. Not all of our friends join us, though. Richard and Klein, two more of our neighbors whom Father has known for many years, well, they remain loyal to the Purest.
They move toward us, firing as they inch closer. Father, Moe, JoeJohn, and Sam try to protect us. They immediately use their bodies as shields, firing their own weapons at the Kakus. We hear a scream. It is Sam, and he now lies dead on ground. It’s all happening so fast—no time to think, no time to mourn the death of a friend.
We have to run! Move fast! Get out of here! We run toward the old subway station—left by our ancestors—in the square. We see our image flash across the DigiMax. Soon, the entire country will know that we are traitors, enemies of the state.
N. J. Paige lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two children. One of her favorite motto is "Life is a journey and must be taken one step at a time." And she enjoys hiking through her local forest, where she gets inspiration from forest Sprites and other woodland creatures.
Tell us about yourself.
Well, I live in Pennsylvania with my husband and two children. My dream is to become a very successful writer. Through my writing, I want to connect with readers, not just through the lens of fiction or some other world, but to ask the question why.
Where and when do you like to write?
I do not have a specific time and place to write; I write wherever and whenever I'm in the mood to write. I do sometimes like to go to my local Panera Bread or Starbucks to get my cup of joe and write as well.
What is your process for creating fantasy worlds? Do you use aides, such as an outline, in the developing process?
I do not use aids or outlines. I just think about the world I'm trying to create and somehow it comes to me.
Of all the characters in this book who is your favorite and why?
I have to Fenesia. For someone so young with privileged beginnings, she is strong and conscientious.
