About the Book

Hey Patrice ~ I LOVE this story idea! You have my complete blessing.

Hugh Howey, author of WOOL


Karma lives in a Silo deep beneath the earth. She isn't sure of much else… only that the wallscreen shows an outside view that is barren and swirling with toxic clouds. Most of the other residents seem content. Except for the ones who jump to their deaths from the hundred-level spiral staircase. And the ones who are pushed.

After the doctor prescribes a special medicine and tells her to avoid tap water, Karma begins to remember a very different world. Despite the fog in her mind, she is convinced that something came before. Such memories are dangerous to talk about, or even to think about.

She must figure out who can be trusted. The doctor… her husband… or no one at all.

This is a novella based on Hugh Howey's WOOL books, the first of five best-selling ebooks in the Karma series.

Karma of the Silo: The Collection, which includes all of the episodes in the Karma series, is now available as an ebook, to be followed by a print edition in May, 2014.

About the Author

Thanks for reading my bio! Here it is, written in official third-person:

Patrice Fitzgerald has gone through many incarnations, including lawyer, writer, publisher, singer, TV host (just local cable TV, don't be too impressed), arts producer, drama teacher, mother, wife, redhead…you get the picture.

She has a series of Silo stories, based on Hugh Howey's world of WOOL and the Silo Saga. Karma of the Silo: the Collection is available now as an ebook, and will be in print in May, 2014. Autographed copies will be available via Patrice’s website at

Patrice has also written books that don't take place underground! Her first published novel was the tightly plotted and fast-paced thriller RUNNING, about two women vying for the U.S. presidency, which became a Kindle bestseller in political fiction. She also writes quirky short stories such as Till Death Do Us Part and Looking for Lance.

Before becoming a writer, Patrice practiced intellectual property law for fifteen years. She is the founder and CEO of a tiny indie press, eFitzgerald Publishing, and is also a professional mezzo-soprano who sings in styles ranging from opera and Broadway to jazz. Patrice is the mother of four adult children. She lives in Connecticut on the water with her wonderful husband and is amazed and grateful to be making a living as a writer.
