Jessica Shubert, a lifelong fan of science fiction and fantasy literature living in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, has completed her new book “My Name is Criminal”: a gripping and potent tale of rebellion, resourcefulness, and survival in a society hostile to the individual.

The great northern nation of Tersatellus is supposed to be perfect. They have vehicles that drive themselves. They power everything with lightning. They even have a digital Plexus of codes that connect every citizen via chips implanted in their heads. However, some citizens find this idea sketchy (or they’re up to something and don’t want to get caught), and they choose to have themselves extracted from this Plexus. From there, the cutouts, as they’re called, have approximately two options: die slowly without knowing what to do on their own, or turn against the law.

For one cutout in particular, the second option has always served her well. Then the law turns back on her with a special offer meant to correct or eliminate all criminals in her tier of infamy. Out of greed, pride, and dumb curiosity, she can only accept and soon finds herself thrust into unknown territory with a bunch of fellow felons almost as crooked as she is. Sure, death and other surprises wait around every corner, but to a thief like Rat, that’s all a part of the job.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jessica Shubert’s riveting story is fast-paced tale of counter-cultural rebellion and its rewards and consequences.

Readers who wish to experience this suspenseful work can purchase “My Name is Criminal” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
