L.A. Larkin divides her time between writing topical thrillers and her work for one of Australia's leading climate change consultancies. To research The Genesis Flaw she drew on her time in Zimbabwe, consulted with world-renowned geneticists and worked closely with a computer hacker, even attending a hackers' conference. She recently returned from Antarctica, which is the setting for her second book, Thirst, on a climate change catastrophe.
"Combines corporate dystopia and the moral fringes of bio-science
to create a savvy, entertaining environmental thriller."
