About the Author
A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moments trying to learn guitar, indulging in freestyle street dance and drinking high-caffeine coffee. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 20 years, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Story Inspiration
I have to credit friend and fellow scifi author Gayle Ramage for the original idea that sparked Imprint, one of several plot bunnies she threw at me on Twitter after I’d pleaded for suggestions (I was a bit stuck for inspiration when the submission call first came). Strangely, the one I chose wasn’t my usual thing at all. I’d never written from a villain’s point of view before, but once the opening scene sprang to mind, I soon realized Jiona and Tevik were going to be a lot of fun. So much so that, even though this was planned as a standalone story not related to any of my others, I’m now working on a (hopefully novel length) sequel. I must also thank Liana Brooks for her demand for more explosions.
