Published by Cloud Lodge Books, her cli-fi novel explores the impact of environmental disasters on our world.
Her protagonist, zoologist Nerissa Crane has been chosen to attend to a horde of animals kept in the lower desks of The Baleen, a massive submarine designed to save specially selected humans and animals from catastrophic, world-wide floods.
Her job is to care for her charges and not ask questions. The ship is manned by an unseen crew and policed by sweet-talking stewards.
In her attempts to recover the escaped creature, Nerissa’s explorations of the odd submarine society of the upper levels opens her eyes to the sacrifices humans will make in the face of ecological chaos and the lengths they will go to survive.
 Dr Naomi Booth, a senior lecturer in creative writing has published a cli-fi horror novel exploring the darkness of paranoias in her debut novel, ''Sealed. ''
It is described as a gripping modern fable on motherhood, a terrifying portrait of ordinary people under threat from their own bodies and from the world around them. With elements of speculative fiction and the macabre, this is also an unforgettable story about a mother’s fight to survive.
“The environment is inseparable from our bodies," she said. "I’m fascinated by the implications that lie within that knowledge, by the idea that in the end, there are factors we simply can’t control, and these are the things that haunt us."
The pair will be reading from their debut novels and discussing dystopia, motherhood, climate change and creative writing from 7pm tomorrow evening in the Coney Street store. The event is sold out, but there is a waiting list or may be 'no shows' on the night.
