I hope you will consider my young adult fantasy novel, Anomaly.
Maya is an Anomaly—superhuman. Her ability to teleport, called
“shifting,” is a rare and extraordinary one. While adjusting to her new
home in London and learning how to control her ability, Maya has to
juggle two Anomaly boys: a hunky albeit nerdy Italian who can become
transparent, and a sexy British rocker who can nullify electricity but
always seems to have a motive other than love. Maya is also targeted by
Aristar Industries, a corporation of Anomalies hell-bent on stealing
DNA, cloning abilities, and storming the British government. Aristar
wants shifters in their ranks—which means they want Maya… or rather, her
DNA. A cat-and-mouse chase for her genetic material thrusts Maya into a
world of deception, kidnapping, murder, and world domination, where the
stakes are high and the consequences of failure deadly.
optometrist and a former National Science Foundation Fellow have
groomed my brain for the scientific ins and outs of this novel. I’m a
member of SCBWI and when I'm not writing, I'm figure skating or blogging
at www.anitasaxena.com. I hope the sample pages will interest you in
the full 80,000-word manuscript, which I believe has series potential.
It is a simultaneous submission. Thank you for your time.
