Author Spotlight: CR Simper

 To show my love and support for my writing community, every day this week I will be sharing an author spotlight!
About the book:
Sixteen-year-old Onnie, newly minted adult, isn’t sure what she wants in life, but she is sure what she doesn’t want, and going off to the Interplanetary Alliance’s Academy is at the top of that list. When she purposely flunks the entrance exam, she’s certain that’s why her father commanded her and her brother Jayesh to return to Rift Watcher Station. As Onnie settles into her new life on Rift Watcher, will she find a place of her own?

Chief Medical Officer Darragh Conally has issues. And secrets. As Onnie determinedly worms her way into his life and forges a friendship he doesn’t want, those secrets come dangerously close to being exposed. But how do you tell the Captain’s daughter to back off without risking your job?
Author Bio:

C R Simper was raised seven miles north of a small town, with two sisters, thirteen dogs, and an open sky painted every night with billions of stars. This unharried childhood allowed time for much reading, which led into a desire to create stories of worlds beyond her own. She has two published short stories in the Steampunk genre, and two published YA Sci-Fi novels: Rift Watcher and Into the Rift. Besides writing, she has a passion for genealogy.

What inspired me to write Rift Watcher?

I love character driven Science Fiction. I started Rift Watcher with no real theme in mind, (my writing process=pantser) but it ended up being about reaching out to people who are somewhat different from the norm. In the story, Onnie is sort of cornered into deciding to befriend Darragh because he's the only one on the station near her own age, but (spoiler) she comes to figure out he's been through a lot to get where he is, and he's a good person in his own quirky way. has all of my book links.
