About the Author
Cecilia Ruth Bentley was born in Jackson, MS and in 1997 her family moved to Plano, Texas. She is a recent graduate of The University of Texas at Dallas where she studied Biology and was involved in the UTeach Dallas program. Despite this focus on the sciences, while in school Cecilia carved out time for hobbies including crafting, music (she plays the violin), writing, and dance. She also has a penchant for travel; some of her favorite places to visit were London, Curacao, Managua, and Roatan. Her love of writing began with writing fan fiction for some of her favorite television shows, including Avatar: The Last Airbender and Heroes. Inspired by her many writer friends, Cecilia first thought of the idea for this series in 2010, but didn't begin to seriously develop it until 2014. Through the writing and editing process this story has evolved from a single short story called "Zone C" to a two part series "Restricted Access" and "Access Denied" to a much more complex three-part series that takes the reader along for an adventure across the America of the future. In addition to this series, Cecilia has also been working on numerous other projects with the hopes of eventually publishing additional novels.
