Shannon McRobertsabout this book: I started writing late in my career as I found I never had enough elbow grease to write a full story. However, one day I was in the shower and I had this idea that literally spawned into the novella known as The Secret of Genetic Corp X. It was quite simple. What if you had no sense of your personal memories? What would that be like? That made me jot down this paragraph:
"Have you ever dreamed you woke up fully-grown with a head full of knowledge, but you had no sense of identity? No memories. No dreams. No sense of who you are. You see it in the movies all the time and somehow it seems glamorized. To tell you the truth it's more like a nightmare. My name is Zarra Jane, or at least that is what I am told. I have no recollection of that name or the face in the mirror. I only know who I am by what I am told by others. I know sociology mandates that one defines self through others—but this is ridiculous. I keep hoping that I'll wake up from this nightmare."
This is book somewhat reminds me of a cross between a play and a film noir. I have recently had it edited for the second time and I must say the story really shines. The cover art, which I did myself, has also been redone. In total this book has had 3 covers.
I am very proud to announce that the upcoming "Worlds Collide" will feature the heroine from this book, Zarra. So, if you want to know the back story of Zarra you definitely need to read this novella!
(PS she will also be featured in the book I'm currently writing that will come out in late 2013 early 2014)
