Exclusive Interview: Implanted Author Lauren C. Teffeau

One of the most frustrating things about pop culture writing is when a creative person denies that something they’ve done is similar to what someone else has done. “Yes, it is a first-person shooter in which you’re a genetically-modified super soldier in power armor who shoots aliens on a circular world, but it’s nothing like Halo.” But in the following email interview with cyberpunk sci-fi writer Lauren C. Teffeau about her new novel Implanted (paperback, Kindle), she refreshingly doesn’t deny that her story is, in some ways, similar to the movie Johnny Mnemonic and the William Gibson story that inspired that film.
