 About The Industrial Age trilogy
Written by P. L. Tavormina, the Industrial Age trilogy takes place on a distant world colonized by Earth’s genetically enhanced descendants. The series opens with Aerovoyant, which follows a young woman who sees carbon dioxide emissions. Her family has hidden her away, because the fossil fuel industry wants her dead for her ability. In Telomeric, this woman’s friend, a man whose DNA records Earth’s collapse, fights to steer their world onto sustainable energies, to provide a future for his wife and young son. The final installment, Luminescent, will conclude the trilogy on a hopeful note, to mirror how we wish our own current challenges might resolve. Reviewers say: “Seeing the air, holding history in your DNA, humans genetically enhanced to adapt to a new world, this is climate-based science fiction at its finest.”

About the Author
By writing fiction, P. L. Tavormina brings solid science firmly into the human tradition of ‘story.’ She’s loved science and nature throughout her life, working with animals as a child, then earning her PhD in genetics. As an adult, she’s contributed to everything from the human genome project, to environmental studies of fossil fuel disasters, to teaching at local universities. In her spare time, she volunteers with local climate organizations. The first book in her trilogy, Aerovoyant, debuted in 2019. The second, Telomeric, released in 2021, and the conclusion, Luminescent, is slated for release in 2024. You can often find her hiking the beautiful trails of Southern California.
