THE SEQUEL TO LIFESPAN OF STARLIGHT A split-second decision, a single time-skip. The world that you kw, gone in a blink. Now a sharp and adept time-skipper, Scout jumps years ahead to find the world transformed. Techlogy has accelerated and the people she kws have grown up, or disappeared. Most pressing, the government that she was trying to escape has used the time to prepare for the return of the time skippers. Caught between finding the mother she left behind and time-skipping ahead with Mason, a series of events lead Scout deeper into the tunnel than ever before. The only way out is by the strength of her love and the power of her mind. The illusion of time has one more surprise, one with the power to change everything.
Thalia Kalkipsakis grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Melbourne with a mum who tried to save battery hens by on-selling them as backyard chickens. Her dad worked as an industrial chemist while also growing strawberries, carrots and Christmas trees on the farm. It was not unusual to find plant shoots in the freezer, or the hair dryer missing because it was needed to heat one of her dad's experiments. Thalia's childhood showed her the magic that can happen when science and nature combine with human creativity. The first book in the Lifespan of Starlight series was published in 2015. These days, Thalia lives in regional Victoria with her husband, their two children and two black cats.
