Reality is only an illusion.Except for those who can control it...Worst. Birthday. Ever. My first boyfriend dumped me--happy birthday, Josie!--my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl's tonsils. Oh, and I'm officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening...Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it. When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he's the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead...

Within 20 seconds I knew that this casual conversation would be one that would take me down memory lane.  Kindred spirits we must be.  With so many things in common, this casual conversation with Tonya Kuper revealed her passion of science fiction and how it transformed into her debut novel Anomaly.  Enjoy!
