About this ebook

AIMii is a state-of-the-art robot caregiver, ready for any medical emergency. So when Lucee, her charge, succumbs to a terminal illness, AIMii is sent to find a cure. But as the AI struggles to complete her mission, she learns what it means to be a little girl’s best friend.

Based on today’s leading-edge medical technology, this work of science fiction explores super-silencers and exciting new treatments for brain disorders and dysfunctions. The Color of Silence was originally included in the Tides of Possibility Science-Fiction Anthology and was lauded as “compassionate” and “engaging."

Mandy Broughton

Mandy Broughton is a nerdy girl who loved school (M.A. in Clinical Psychology and M.A. in Christian Education). But as much as she loved school, she loves reading more. She usually has a book in her hand and two more in a bag. And she won't buy a purse unless it has a special pocket for her kindle. She gravitates towards mysteries, science fiction and historical novels but the Bible is her passion. For the record, while it is true she has spent more money on books than groceries, it only happened once. And due to the great invention of peanut butter sandwiches, her husband did not starve that month.
