DR. VYVYAN EVANS
Language Expert, Digital Communication Technologist, & Author
I am an expert in language and digital communication. In my writing and my research I explore the prodigious capacity of our species, Homo sapiens, to mean during the course of spoken interaction, and the impact of technology on language and mind. I have written numerous books on language, non-linguistic communication, meaning, mind, imagination, their evolution, the impact of technology on language and the future of language and communication; I discuss these topics regularly in the popular written and broadcast media.
My exploration of common questions and issues about language can be found in my Psychology Today blog: "Language in the mind", in my popular science writing (links below), and in my podcasts and TV/video appearances:

THE END OF SLEEP:
What connects a new highly addictive gaming app, viral conspiracy theories by the mysterious Dark Court, and a fatal insomnia pandemic? Enter Lilith King, the world's most famous cybercrime detective.
Lilith had always known she was different. Attitude to burn, for one thing. The strange chanting in her head since she was seven, for another. And then, the Aura, the sensory disturbance that makes her sick to the pit of her stomach, seemingly coinciding with the new, strange apparition that’s haunting her. She also has the ability to solve crime through touch alone. Together with Dr. Kace Westwood, the sleep specialist genius, and a freak like her, Lilith must figure out whether the deadly insomnia pandemic is linked to the vagus chip implants being offered to all qualifying Unskills. Or are people’s language chips being hacked? And why is only the lowest soc-ed class being targeted?
In a desperate race against time to save billions of people, Lilith must confront shocking revelations about her origins and destiny, while attempting to save the one she loves.
THE END OF SLEEP is a SONGS OF THE SAGE Book
