Three more parts to come!****************Five years have passed since the airlock slammed shut on the 4,000 souls condemned to live in the Silo.Karma can remember now that there was a time before--before she was locked into this cylindrical tomb under the earth. But all she can see of the outside are dead hills and the dark clouds swirling through what remains of a toxic world.She clings to this barren life not for herself but simply to keep her child safe… and to preserve the forbidden truths about what has been lost. Among the lost is her friend Andy, the first person sent out to Clean.Sent out to die.With every step and every stair, Karma vows to survive so that her memories of the world that once existed will live on in those who come after.****************What readers are saying about The Sky Used to be Blue, Part 1 of the Karma series…“… adds wonderfully to the original series.”“… well-written, gripping and filled with suspense.”“… you will thank me after this must read!!!”“… I just couldn’t put it down.”“… there is something incredibly touching about this story.”“… best of the WOOL fanfics I’ve read… this felt the most true to the original world.”****************Patrice Fitzgerald is in her third, fourth, or fifteenth act at this point.

She got over it.Her writing includes tightly plotted and fast-paced novels like her best-selling Kindle political thriller RUNNING, plus quirky short stories about sex, God, and death—not necessarily in that order—such as Till Death Do Us Part and Looking for Lance. Her stories have appeared in a number of anthologies.Patrice is currently finishing the third book in the Karma series, to be titled "Deep Justice."
