Published Author Writes Novel of Crime and Mystery In a Virtual World
There have been some writers in Second Life getting their start here in hopes of getting published to a wider audience in real life. But recently someone whom was already a published writer came to Second Life, using the virtual world as an inspiration for a story aimed at such a wider audience. "Femme Fatale Online," written by Eugene Rodgers, takes place partially in a virtual world, in which a man has to find out who is blackmailing him, or risk losing his marriage, his job, and possibly his life. I had a few words with Rodgers as his avatar Isaac, and he talked about his novel, as well as his time in Second Life.
