Margret A. Treiber
Captain Eris, AKA Death Engine, former military DNA tweak, and mercenary is unexpectedly pulled out of her retirement in Champion Acres and dragged back into the shit by an idiot in a mech suit.
Feeling pissed off and miserable about losing her retirement lifestyle and subsequently, her chances of dying of old age; she searches for the reasons why she was reactivated. With the help of her old friend Al, an incognito artificial intelligence; and Om, a twenty-something emo tweak-girl, she discovers a plot that goes a lot deeper than losing her death. And in doing so, she finds a reason to survive.

In the preponderance of the multiverse, The Margret is an awesome force of good, evil, and indifference which many both fear and love.
As an alien demi-god, The Margret single-handedly defeated the viral hibachi army of Monatchi Seven. Then, after taking a brief twenty-four-day leave, she returned to work with the Mushwreck Squad to defeat the forces of the Higgsinator matter-reprogrammer force.
Cyborg The Margret saved an entire solar system by channeling a supernova through her power banks. Sacrificing her body so trillions could live, her consciousness resides in a trailer park icemaker in Pago Pago. Thousands of people make the yearly pilgrimage to get sacred Margret ice and hope for a few words of wisdom.
Margret the Planet Wrecker controls two-thirds of the galaxy and demands complete loyalty from her subjects. Most people live in terror, fearing retribution for the slightest infraction. Parents frighten unruly children into behaving by sharing tales of careless youngsters who have crossed The Margret only to be eaten in a stew by her and her followers.
However, here on this Earth, The Margret is but an average systems analyst and underrated speculative fiction writer. She’s been writing since high school, but stopped during the “party years”.
The Margret has been a receptionist, customer service representative, investigator, auto mechanic, plant care tech, among an even longer list of mcjobs. Currently meeking out enough of a living to reside in the land of heat and humidity with her spouse, a future alien invasion collaboration and holder of the unified theory (which is for sale to the highest bidder - serious inquiries only), she continues to write speculative fiction and edits for Sci-Fi Lampoon Magazine.
