Marissa Meyer

What is a cyborg?"'Cyborg” was a term coined in the sixties referring to any creature that is both cybernetic and organic. Some theologists say that we are all cyborgs already. Take, for example, our reliance on cell phones, which have become so ingrained in our society that many people consider their cell phone an extension of themselves. Have you ever left home without your cell and felt uneasy and disconnected all day? Is it that different than if the cell phone were literally a part of your body, say, imbedded in your spinal cord? I’ll let you make that call.Cinder’s cyborg parts are, of course, physical components of her body. They work in harmony with her brain and nervous system. Her hand and foot function just as biological limbs do (though without physical sensation) and her brain-machine interface is really just a smart phone, computer, and television combined into one… only in her case, it’s all included inside her head."

The Lunar Chronicles

About the author:"Marissa Meyer is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles. She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and three demanding cats. She’s a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, any occasion that requires a costume), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was a child. She may or may not be a cyborg. She was born on February 19, 1984."

Marissa Meyer takes inspiration from a variety of places for her books. Here are a few!
