Tara Campbell is a Washington, DC-based writer. Her latest work TreeVolution is a speculative fiction adventure featuring secret experiments, corporate machinations, and a little eco-payback. Reports of peculiar tree assaults are trickling into the governor's office in Olympia, Washington: a maple kicked a dog about to relieve itself, a ficus spanked a leaf-yanking child, a yew slapped a woman locking up her bike to its trunk. Young staffer Tamia Bennett prepares to watch her career fizzle when she's put in charge of tracking these urban legends. But as documented arbor assaults become violent and widespread, Tamia and retired botanist Dr. Barbara Block discover that acres of genetically modified trees are developing deadly plans.
