My novel with the same name

After his execution, Cain wakes up inside the world's most popular online dystopian survival game Burnt, as a villain. The Indian woman Shakti Arya is his creator and for her, he is a toy.

Cain meets with Itziar and Tomomi who have been in the game for a long time. They make a team and teach him a lot about how things work.

When Cain and his friends go for the reputation as super-villains, Shakti Arya kills Itziar just because she can. A player witness this and places the killing on YouTube.

Cain figures out a plan so they must keep him alive. He continues to work on his fame but so fast and insane that there is no time to stop him.

Cain is shot and killed in the game but finally reinstated since players complained that he was missing.

The Writer: Désirée Nordlund

I've been writing for as long as I can remember and writing screenplays is what I love the most. When I write spec scripts there is often a female lead and very little talk about guys. I like odd, misunderstood characters as well. If I am hired as a writer I dare say I'm easy to work with, and if we disagree I work to find a way that makes us both happy. I can be budget-oriented if needed, and kill darlings if needed too. Award-winning screenwriter with several short scripts produced, one with Dick Pope behind the camera. This is the latest short film on my resume: The Third Wish . I'm also into novels. Here is a book trailer for Quickfinger . Go to bio
