4 Facts about My Work in Progress
(Christian) Futuristic Family Saga
One town, two interconnected families, three generations, and numerous lives changed forever when dark secrets come to light. A coming-of-age futuristic epic packed with mystery, danger, and romance.
The Year 2039
An era of unparalleled advancements in technology, as well as stifling government control.
A lighthouse on the central Oregon Coast
In a small fictional tourist town in Oregon, two 1880s houses stand on opposite sides of the beach. One is a turreted Queen Anne Victorian, the other a charming old keeper's house still inhabited by the lighthouse keeper's descendants.
What makes this family saga so special?
Its futurist time period and unique characters
Most family sagas are set in dramatic historical eras of the past, such as World War II, the American Civil War, or the exploration of the Wild West. None, that I know of, take place in the future. Nor do many sagas employ such an ethnically and racially diverse cast of characters. I am especially fond of my main character--a lovely young woman who is not only caring and complex, but smart as a whip and laugh-out-loud funny.
Stay tuned for more tidbits to come!

Welcome to the
Kingdom of Nerdonia!
We are a community of nerds, geeks, academics, and intellectuals (both Christian and otherwise) who love to chat about the deeper things in life. We also go a bit nutty over fantasy, sci-fi, British telly, the arts and sciences, classical music, reading and writing, Biblical theology, and anything else the rest of the world might consider nerdy. We are a friendly and inclusive bunch. However...
Any trolls or ogres entering our kingdom with the express purpose of bullying our villagers with their cruel comments will be given one chance to mend their ways before being thrown over the wall by the royal guards. You have been warned.
A self-professed nerd, Aviva Eales is a singer/actress/puppeteer turned speculative fiction writer, who blogs about all things theological, intellectual, and nerdy from a Born-Again Christian perspective. A music graduate of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, she and her husband enjoy classical music, theater, British comedy, Star Trek, reading, lifting weights, and frolicking at the ocean.
