BLOG TOUR – Catching Love when it Falls by Deryn Pittar

Today I am delighted to be kicking off the Blog Tour for Catching Love when it Falls. This is the first book in the Future Movers series and I am sharing with you Deryn’s rationale for the book/series.

Available from Amazon

William and Belinda, both genetically altered, meet years after leaving the government-rearing nursery. Their late development allowed them to escape a life devoted to the government’s defence departments. If their skills are now discovered they will be conscripted and never be free again.

William’s talent is to move through space between locations in the blink of an eye. Belinda can lift objects of great weight with her mind. Their relationship creates a raft of problems both struggle to overcome.

#GuestPost – Future Movers Rationale

The  rationale for ‘Catching Love When it Falls’ developed from the public discussions across all media about the genetic modification of plants, adding genes to prevent diseases and changing the way the plants react. There were for and against opinions; and so The Future Movers Series was born.

I wondered what the consequences would be if a rogue group of scientists placed animal genes into human embryos. From this premise rose the following questions:

Who would do this and proclaim a legal right to do so?

Who would carry these children to full term and who care for them?

What types of talents could they have?

If they mingled with the normal populations what would people think?

How could they live a normal life with their unusual features and talents?

I had to answer all these questions as I developed my stories, plus any questions that arose along the way. I set the series in the future to make all this possible.

Therefore,  I created the Defense Department as the legal breeders; their excuse being the children’s extraordinary talents could be used in defense of the country (i.e. New Zealand and Australia) and although not mentioned in each book surrogate mothers were tricked into carrying the embryos thinking they were helping infertile couples.

Then I needed a place for the children to be reared, so the Nursery was created. A time limit was also needed so that the children could be released for adoption into the general public if they appeared normal by the age of seven. As conscription into life-long service in the Defense Dpartment was considered a prison sentence the children began to hide their talents.

Throughout the series more details are revealed but the whole rationale holds together really well.

I also had a heap of fun coming up with the talents some of the Nursery’s residents develop from the cocktail of genes some of them received.
