My latest young adult book, Torched, is about a girl who goes undercover in a group like Earth Liberation Front. ELF folks are called Elves, for obvious reasons. My people are called Mother Earth Defenders, or MEDics. (I spent a lot of time trying to think of something that worked for both).
About 18 months ago, Elves burned down part of Seattle’s Street of Dreams.
Now they are saying they tore down two radio station towers in Snohomish County, WA. The towers, owned by station KRKO, have been a source of controversy for years. You can read more about it in a communique here. [Full disclosure: a communique! That word sounds so cool, in a retro way.]
