About the author:
Vincent Berg was born in New Jersey but, being a military dependent, grew up on 'more or less the East Coast'. Working in Systems Engineering in the Financial Services in Chicago and New York, he never considered himself a writer. But after retiring and moving closer to his family, he wanted to explore the kinds of books he enjoyed.

Writing character-driven stories with an emphasis on science and relationships, the stories being complex and meandering. Without action heroes, antiheroes or clear conflicts, the central characters try to figure out where they are and where they're going. The reader gets sucked along, as they try to piece together where they fit in the world.

The Cuckoo's Progeny

Authored by Vincent Berg

Al and Betty aren't like their classmates. They've developed particular skills which set them apart, and which sets them in a search for others like them. As they discover who they might be, they become alienated from friends, family and humanity in general. They must discover who they are, and where they belong, as there's no longer room for them in their old community. Between walking into disasters, ungrateful rescues and government agents tracking their every movement, they're searching for a way out and a way home, wherever that might be.

Searching out others like them, they build a crew to search for a ship which may take them to a home they've never known, to a reception they aren't sure will be welcoming. What's more, they have no one to rely on other than each other.
