About The Book:
We all make mistakes.
But what if you’d made a mistake that was endangering the earth and everyone on it?
How far would you go to fix what you’d done?
In the compelling finale of redemption and technology-gone-wrong, inventor Storm Freeman has one final chance to take back the device she gave to the world.
The Gatherer delivers free infinite energy along with an illness never seen before and with no known cure. Afflicted herself, Storm is heading back to the compound where she built the device to put an end to the suffering she caused. But when she encounters a Gatherer so corrupted from her original design that she hardly recognizes it, she’ll need all her strength and that of those around her, to finally stop the lethal device she created.

With one foot in the world of technology and the other in the world of words, Colleen Winter’s fiction explores our relationship with technology and ultimately the choices it requires us to make.

She reads to get inspired by Martha Wells, Becky Chambers, Veronica Roth, Blake Crouch, Andy Weir, and Matt Haig. She is a member of Science Fiction Writers of America, The Writers’ Union of Canada, and International Thriller Writers.
