It’s Blogtober Day 5 and I’m here with a super exciting post! You’ll probably have seen Orgo’s on Twitter, or the hashtag #iwantanorgo – if you have then get ready to meet the guy responsible! R. J. Furness is the author of Dissent: RENEGADES, and the MG Orgo Runner series – both perfect!
I contacted Rick to ask if he would be interested in an author interview, and to my delight he said yes! I had SO many questions to ask and luckily enough he answered them all SO brilliantly!
Without further ado, let’s get into the Q & A!
Q: Introduce Yourself!
A: Hi. My name’s R.J. Furness, and I’m the author of the “dissent” and “Orgo Runners” books. Both those series are interlinked and set in the same world. They are original dystopian adventures set in a future ice age. I think it’s fair to say that it’s unlikely you’ve read much like them.

Synopsis: Zélie remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled – Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoning forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, anyone with powers was targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden. Zélie is one such person. Now she has a chance to bring back magic to her people and strike against the monarchy.
