Marissa Slaven is an emerging author, practicing palliative care physician, and life-long reader of literature. Inspired by Austen, Dickens as well as Asimov and Bradbury, she honed her writing skills at the Humber School of Writers where she was mentored by authors David Bezmozgis and Tim Wynne-Jones. Her resulting debut YA novel, Code Blue, balances the haunting impact of climate change with a compelling coming-of-age story, mixed with elements of mystery and intrigue. With a strong female protagonist, her environmental dystopian YA adventure combines impressive scientific knowledge, a well-crafted plot and fully developed characters. This book will be published on Earth Day April 22nd 2018 by Moon Willow Press. A frequent speaker in medical circles, Marissa’s career as a physician and science background fueled her research into climate change; a topic she has become extremely knowledgeable and passionate about. Born in Montreal and a graduate of McGill’s prestigious medical school, Marissa completed her medical training in Boston Massachusetts. She continues to work as a palliative care physician, and has also dedicated herself to the craft of writing, sharpening her writing skills through her connection with Humber and the SCWBI. In her free time, she shares her love of reading with her husband and children and enjoys yoga, movies and football. Code Blue Book Review
