Bricks (Halfskin, #3)

Fabbers, slabbers and fakies were dehumanizing slurs for fabricated humans. Bricks, however, was the People's favorite. 
The Sentience Laws were created to protect the rights of Bricks, but the laws didn't last long. Banished to the remote isolation of the Settlement, Paul and Raine are sentenced to live the rest of their lives in the wilderness. 
Escape and freedom will depend on Marcus Anderson, the man responsible for all the suffering that's been endured since the invention of biomites—the synthetic stem cells used to fabricate halfskins and Bricks. Marcus needs them in order to find the "powers-that-be," the man he believes is truly responsible for the world's suffering. Their journey will take them to a tiny island in the South Atlantic, where the truth is much closer than they realize. That's where they will discover the "powers-that-be". 
And so much more. 
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR 
WHAT GENRE DO YOU PREFER? 
Science fiction, dystopia, technothriller and, to some extent, young adult. I do have a series of novellas in the vampire genre. Yeah, I know. Doesn't fit. That character, Drayton, came out of nowhere when I was at a community theatre production of Dracula. I figured that an immortal vampire would more likely become compassionate and wise as he grew older. The technothriller Halfskin is similar to vampires in that technology promises immortality and complete control of our bodies. But then what? 
WHY A SYNTHETIC STEM CELL? 
Organic life is too nilly-willy. We're limited by our DNA. Give it to the scientists to perfect this vehicle that carries us around because it is a vehicle. If we no longer have organic bodies, if every one of our cells is replaced by something manmade all the way down to the neurons and synapses, then what are we? What if our world is just a computerized environment, ala The Matrix? Would we know the difference? Look, we're printing organs today. I'm not, but someone is. Some genius has figured out how to push play and heart or liver or kidney comes down the chute. Halfskin takes the idea into the distant future and explores whether this leads to more happiness or just more of the same. Because more money, more problems. 
DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER JOB BESIDES AUTHOR? 
Day job, I'm a college horticulture teacher. Writing is a passion. No plans to change it. 
WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO? 
Breathe. 
WHAT TALENT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE? 
Omnipresent supergalactic oneness. 
IF WE HAD A CUSTOM THAT ALLOWED US TO EAT OUR CHILDREN, WHAT KIND OF SAUCE WOULD YOU USE? 
Ketchup, the miracle condiment. 
ARE OUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES STEALING OUR SOUL? AND IF SO, DO YOU MAKE 
OFFERINGS TO YOUR TOASTER? 
I offer white bread and the toaster gives back crunchy, brown bread. Never doubt a true miracle.
