All James Siles ever wanted was to prove his existence was worth something.

Genius. Prodigy. He'd had it with empty words.

They would see, once and for all. His parents, Director Brophy, all his colleagues at Larkspur would finally see that the young roboticist could change the world. He had to. His father didn't have much time left.

Organorobotic Transference was supposed to fix everything.

And Empetrum was supposed to help him.

The Bioroboticist is a YA science fiction story about the search for worth and belonging, of good intentions and steep consequences, and the fierce, complex relationships that make life worth fighting for.
It is currently in the querying process toward publication, with independent excerpts in a visual format produced for my thesis project at Academy of Art University.
