Norrie is a main character in one of my sci-fi novellas. We saw her grow up in Made for Me, a sci-fi romance, and now, she is a star of its sequel, the sci-fi coming of age novella, Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes. Norrie is now twenty-two years old and is a Master’s student of Ethics in Robotics.
Norrie was a character created out of my desire to dream and escape. In fact, she is everything I wish I was in my early twenties! In this novella, there is much she sees about society that she wishes to change, particularly, humankind’s technological advances and treatment of a new type of earthly citizen (or non-citizen), and she takes steps to do so. There is also a little bit of romance in this novella, but don’t be fooled. This is not a romance, it is about Norrie exploring who she is.
I invite you to view my interview with this main character at https://pamelascanepa.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/rrbc-sci-fi-amwriting-an-interview-with-my-main-character-norrie/
Here is an excerpt:
When asked, What are you most passionate about? Norrie answers:
I believe man has to be responsible to his creations. If you create something to be just like you, then you should not treat it like dirt on your shoe. Similar to the cruelty against animals clause. They are another living thing and deserve the good treatment you’d want for yourself if they were the ones holding the leash. Some would argue a creation of man is his to do with as he pleases. Well, not when you are using living DNA.
You may view a preview or purchase Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes at the link above for Kindle and K.U. download or in paperback. In fact, I believe in Norrie and want to share her with the world so much, and she is going to show up later in some of my future books, so I am offering this ebook for free download today and tomorrow to coincide with this post!

**The AtoZ Challenge theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open. In April, I will blog from A to Z to include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories. Each day I will write something based on the next letter in the alphabet. It’s been fun so far, yet it has really given me a chance to pause for reflection as well.
As you can see, I have doubled up on my purpose in this post! 🙂
