What’s the hardest part of being an author?
For me, the hardest part is the editing as well as marketing. The book market is so saturated; it is a challenge to break through.
Can you give us a short synopsis of Code Human?
My novel, Code Human falls in the Fantasy/Science Fiction genre. It is filled with various and interesting characters such as the Shillers, Besmirchians, Purestkind, and Rubrics. The book features the fragmented and unstable autocratic society called Kakus where disobeying laws may be punishable by death. There's an uprising. And one girl, Fenesia Thornbark loses her innocence to war and atrocities like the loss of her parents and her home. She becomes a warrior and vows to protect her younger sister and other orphan children.
What inspired you to write this book?
I was influenced by so many conflicts and human rights issues we here so much about.
How many hours per day do you spend writing?
It varies, depending on my to-do list for the day. However, I would say that I write for several hours per day.
Name your top five favourite books.
Other than my own, obviously, I would say Wool (Hugh Howey), Blood Line (James Rollins), Shakespeare Sonnets, Innocence (Dean Koontz), Legend (Marie Lu).

Title: Code Human
Author: N.J. Paige
Genre: YA Science-Fiction
A few days ago, I was living the life of the privileged elite—now I may not live through the night…
In a dystopian world, far in the future, seventeen-year-old, Fenesia Thornbark, loses her home, her way of life, and most of her friends and family, all at the hands of people she once trusted. With her parents dead, Fenesia is now responsible for her younger sister’s life, as well as that of several other orphaned children they meet along the way, while trying to find the resistance group who is fighting the corrupt government. As she struggles to survive in a hostile environment that is unfamiliar to her, Fenesia is transformed into an unapologetic killer—something she had never imagined possible in her former privileged life.
N. J. Paige lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two children. One of her favorite motto is “Life is a journey and must be taken one step at a time.” And she enjoys hiking through her local forest, where she gets inspiration from forest Sprites and other woodland creatures.
