Kate Barny is an enthusiastic writer/author of educational books and science fiction novels. She is a Greek expat who lived in England and eventually settled in France, navigating different countries and professional identities until clinging to what she loved doing most: writing stories.
Before committing to writing, she worked as a Canine Behaviorist. During that period, she wrote and self-published a few dog-oriented books. Later, she attended online Creative Writing courses and wrote one memoir. Soon, she expanded her literary composition into speculative fiction and its subgenres: sci-fi, science fantasy, urban fantasy, false utopia, and climate fiction. Her sci-fi novels address fans of unconventional fictional prose and whoever loves traveling to futuristic utopic, dystopic, or more complicated worlds.
In The Oblivion of Borrowed Time
Science Fiction, Climate Fiction
In 2080, the over-populated planet lives in a one-season era of perpetual summer. The increasing extinction of fauna and flora, the megadrought, the depletion of food resources, and the abnormal natural phenomena promoted mental illness, leading to insecurity and riots.
All nations joined a worldwide organization, the Detection of Anomalous Natural Events Bureau (DANEB), where scientists and special Investigators cooperate to ensure the planet’s survival and restore the four seasons. Aethra Ortygeans devoted her life to investigating Nature’s anomalies while keeping her bizarre mental condition a secret.
Not all Oceanians trust the Organization or their government to recover Earth’s climate, nor do they want to. Telos Spikeleaf is one of them, a controversial activist who manipulates the people’s fragile state of mind while preparing a coup.
Untangling his scheme before he overthrows the government becomes Aethra’s priority. However, during her mission, she realizes her hallucinations connect to what happens on the planet. Deciphering them brings her against an unimaginable truth…Agent Ortygeans is not who she thought she was.
