I want to put on your radar an award-winning YA author with a background in biology, who is using her writing to spark conversations among young people regarding climate leadership.
Inspired by current events, Tracy Richardson’s new YA sci-fi novel, “Catalyst,” (Brown Books, June 2, 2020) poses the question, What is our responsibility to Earth, especially when it comes to climate change?  Richardson’s book continues the conversation started by Greta Thunberg through the Fridays for our Future movement. Marcie, the novel’s teenage protagonist, and her friends become ‘catalysts’ for an environmentalist movement, inspiring those in their community to wake up to the depletion of Earth’s resources.
A little more about the book: Marcie, a junior in high school, is spending her summer working at Angel Mounds, the archeological dig her mother heads, along with her brother, Eric, and his girlfriend, Renee. Things immediately shift into the paranormal when Marcie and her teammates meet Lorraine and Zeke, two mysterious dig assistants who claim to access the Universal Energy Field with their minds. After the two confess to Marcie that they know something she doesn't -- that the earth and its resources are in grave danger, Marcie must decide if she's brave enough to save the planet with them.
For more information, check out Tracy’s press kit here: 
6. What impact would you like Catalyst to have on readers?
I would love it if readers would see that the Earth is our one and only home and that we have a responsibility to take care
of her. To recognize that we are all connected and that what happens on the other side of the world can impact them
and is affected by the things they do. To understand that what they do matters and that they can have an impact. We can
make the world a better place. We don’t have to go with the status quo. Each and every one of us can be a catalyst for
positive change.

7. What was your inspiration for including alternate dimensions in the book?
As part of my science geekiness, I am fascinated by the idea scientists propose that there are multiple universes out there.
It’s hard enough to conceptualize the immensity of one universe let alone the idea that there could be an infinite number
of additional universes!! I also believe that we are here on Earth to grow and learn and develop both as individuals
and as a species. The idea that there are other dimensions within this universe where we can advance in the process of
our personal development is intriguing as well. What’s the next stage of human development? Telepathy? Telekinesis?
Instant manifestation? Who can say?
