Interview with Ruth Silver the author of Aberrant

In the future Dystopian society of Cabal, the government instills equality for all and offers its citizens the perfect system. There is food, shelter and jobs for everyone. The one requirement is to follow the rules without question, including the government's match in marriage and "The Day of the Chosen", a lottery that randomly selects families to conceive children as natural means hasn't existed in generations. Following her eighteenth birthday, Olivia Parker accepts her requirement to marry her childhood best friend, Joshua Warren, and is eager to start her work assignment and new life when it all comes abruptly to an end as she's arrested and thrown in prison. The only crime committed, her existence. Olivia is unlike the rest of the world born not from "The Day of the Chosen." The truth haunts the government and puts her life in grave danger as one simple fact would destroy the perfect system.

With Joshua's help, Olivia breaks free of prison and is forced on the run. Together they set out to find the promised rebel town in search of a new home and new life together. Their situation seems less than promising as they reach the town of Haven. New rules and customs must be adhered to in order to stay. Leaving would mean most certain death in the large expanse of the Gravelands. Time is running out as the government mounts an attack to destroy Olivia and bury her secret with her. Thrown into a world unlike their own, they must quickly adapt to survive.

Thank you Ms. Silver for the opportunity of having you on our blog today!

1) How and why have you started to write? Were there something or someone that gave you an impulse?

I’ve been writing since I was about fifteen. I’ve always loved to write and to tell stories. Over the past few years, I’ve been reading more Young Adult novels and found myself driven towards writing for that genre.

2) Tell me something about your book Aberrant.

Aberrant is the story of a young girl, Olivia, that finds her existence illegal. Forced on the run from the oppressive government, she seeks out the rebel alliance in hope of survival.

3) While youre writing, have you discovered a character that you where developing feelings of love for? And was there a character that gave you headaches?

I find I have a special place in my heart for all the characters I’ve written – especially Joshua and Olivia.

4) How have you done your research for this novel?

There was a lot of scientific research involved in creating Mindonsiphan, as well as the world that Olivia is born into. Since Aberrant is a series, a lot of that research is focused more in the second and third novel as we uncover more answers.

5) Is there a book that inspired your writings?

I love The Hunger Games. It definitely inspired me to read a lot more Young Adult novels, which helped focus my writing towards the genre.

6) In the end, would you like say some words to your fans from Romania?

Thank you so much for reading and supporting my writing.
