The world wears computerized contact lenses that control technology with the blink of an eye. But behind each pair of contacts, there are two sets of eyes: those of the wearer and those of Newsight.
Newsight Incorporated became a household name when they released their debut product: Lenses. Now, Newsight is more than a household name…they’re IN the household. They see everything their customers see, and with their virtual reality simulations, they even know what their customers think. They’ve created an Orwellian surveillance society, but not everyone is content to be watched. A teenaged boy named Vincent - a Senator’s son - and his friend Jessica - a Newsight developer’s daughter - begin to unravel the corporation’s plot, but not before their parents are taken, and their worlds are ripped apart.
“2084” is a young adult tale of two teens immersed in a dystopian world. Inspired by George Orwell’s “1984”, the novel follows Vincent and Jessica on a journey to free their families of the technology that enslaved them. Because of our own struggles with privacy and data management, Engel’s dystopian society is a blend of science fiction and science fact.
Hi there, my name's Mason. Here are the starters about me:-I'm 22 years old -I'm a Purdue graduate with a major in math (so writing, right?)
-I love playing sports (soccer and basketball especially)
-I run a website to help high school seniors apply for financial aid (OneSpotAid.org)
I love stories. They can give an escape. They can give hope. They can give perspective, laughter, joy, inspiration. All they need is to be told well. That is my mission, and since the age of 17, I have written thousands of pages trying to figure out how to accomplish it. Now, five years later, I am ready for my stories to be heard.
No matter what I set out to write, the end product always seems to tie into one of two themes: the omnipresence of technology, or our perception of reality. Yeah, I know, sounds philosophical, and at its core, it is. On the page though, in the prose of the plot itself, philosophy takes backseat to story. In every novel I have worked on - including the ones of the present - my first and foremost goal is to entertain YOU, to provide you an escape from the real world and, when you're ready, some inspiration to return to it.
