Jadah McCoy, a 2009 graduate of Monticello High School, has completed her first novel, The Culling, and has recently signed a contract with Curiosity Quills Press. The novel (New Adult Science Fiction) is expected to be in print in early 2016.
In this Bladerunner meets Alien debut, 18-year-old Syl lives in the ruins of Earth’s first colonized sister planet. By day she searches abandoned skyscrapers for food, but at night genetically-spliced, flesh-eating bugs — the Cull– come out for a meal of their own. When Syl is abducted and her own DNA spliced, slowly turning her into one of the Cull, she discovers the androids who destroyed her world aren’t nearly as dead as everyone thought.
McCoy is the daughter of Ronnie and Lori McCoy and granddaughter of Wes and Monteen McCoy and Lolly Blackwell, all of Monticello.
A 2013 graduate of Kaplan University in Nashville, Tennessee, McCoy is the legal coordinator of a Nashville company.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
