Ever wonder what kind of music one of your favorite characters in a book was listening to on their playlist? I have joined some of my author colleagues, and curated music playlists of two of the lead characters in Taming the Telomeres (TTT), Amanda and Andy Michaels.
The playlists are inspired by dialogue, actions or scenes in the award winning novel, Taming the Telomeres on Amazon.
Residing on Youtube, some of the songs in the playlists have videos as well which can immerse listeners into a whole new perspective.
The unpredictable protagonist of Taming the Telomeres is Amanda Michaels, a high school girl who is the sole survivor of a commuter jet crash, and her playlist is here:
Andy Michaels is her uncle, the high-profile DC trial attorney who ends up representing her and other victims of the hemispheres jet crash, and his playlist is here:
Both of the playlists are found on the Taming the Telomeres channel on YouTube. You can shuffle the Youtube playlists or listen to them in the order presented.
Also, scenes and action inspired by TTT can be found on the Taming the Telomeres Pinterest page and a video interview of author Shapiro can be found here.
Every 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.
