Here’s the Back Cover Text Explaining Taming the Telomeres

Taming the Telomeres

tel·o·mere –A compound structure at the end of a chromosome.

A survivor. A soulmate. A secret.

The only jet crash survivor has no idea the immense biological secrets she possesses, or even who she is. But intelligence agencies will kill over the secrets. High school senior Amanda Michaels suffers amnesia with regard to everything before the jet crash. She loses her parents and her memory in the aftermath, but miraculously survives.  While recovering, Amanda strikes up a whirlwind romance with a young hospital volunteer, but only recalls a haunting series of flashbacks of her near death experiences (NDE’s). Meanwhile, her uncle, high profile DC trial attorney Andy Michaels, represents her and the families of numerous passengers against Hemispheres Airways.

Spying. Covert Ops. Cover-up at the highest levels?

As the major monetary settlements with Hemispheres are looming, both Amanda and her uncle Andy stumble onto evidence of possible sabotage of the jet and a link to her dad’s classified biological research on cell chromosomal telomeres.  Why was her dad’s research so valuable?  Once Amanda learns she may possess biological secrets that competing intelligence agencies will kill for, she has no idea who to trust, unwittingly caught up in a web of biological espionage. Amanda’s personal roller coaster ride explores romance, heartbreak, depression, persistence and ultimate redemption. The fast paced story moves between Middleburg, Virginia horse farms, Washington, DC, New York city and points between.  A series of stunning twists unwind along the path to the unforeseen climax.

If you’re a fan of Clancy, Connelly, or Grisham novels,

“Taming” is a must read.

What’s a Telomere?

telomere imageEvery chromosome has a special ending or cap called a telomere.  It’s like the plastic tip protecting the end of a shoelace.  When a cell divides, some of the telomere is lost.   But some enzymes can cause cell telomeres to have more cell divisions, extending cell life. Sound Intriguing? Read Taming the Telomeres to find out just how valuable telomere biological research is.
