Couzins is the author of Domers.
According to the book
description of Domers, it is “an action/adventure novel with an anti-big government theme...
2080 A.D., the United States is a "virtual" country whose citizens have lived for sixty years under millions of
family-sized domes, hermetically sealed with no windows and no access to the Outside where the rest of the world faces virus
pandemics, riots inspired by worldwide economic chaos, and terrorists killing millions with nuclear, biological, and chemical
Tom Corant is a US Army sergeant who fights battles all over the world by remotely
controlling armed infantry robots from the safety of his bedroom. Tom is happy with life in the dome he was born into twenty-four
years ago. Tom met, courted, fell in love with, and proposed marriage to Jenny Salem all on-line via the SuperNet, the high-bandwidth
communications web that connects the 75 million dome homes that make up the United States of America. While the betrothed
couple is being transported to their own dome to start their life together, they are kidnapped by a Mexican army patrol roaming
the dangerous Outside.
Tom and Jenny are rescued by Roving Wolf, a Comanche scout whose people (like
all other Native American Indian nations) were exempted from mandatory doming and who now live free in their native lands
among millions of buffalo in the reconstituted bison herds of the Great Plains. Roving Wolf is ordered to escort the couple
across the desert southwest where a multi-tribe Native American army is collaborating with the dome society's military to
repel an imminent invasion by the ambitious military dictator of Mexico. During their journey, Tom and Jenny are exposed for
the first time to Nature and to Freedom. Tom comes to realize that the domes are prisons and he learns the truth behind the
doming of America. Tom vows to free his family, fight against the system, to expose the government's lies, and to someday
make the Domers understand that the safety offered by dome life is not worth the price."
