    A.W. Daniels, Author of 'Genetically Privileged' Appears On 'Books I Love' Radio

     
    A. W. Daniels, author of two highly praised, insightful books about genetic engineering, recently appeared on 'Books I Love' radio. In the interview he discussed his recent book about genetic engineering, 'Genetically Privileged'. The future benefits and challenges of genetic engineering, as well as the social implications, are subjects addressed in two novels by Daniels, the first entitled 'Genetically Privileged', and the second, now in release, entitled 'Genetically Conflicted'.

    "Tippy Felzenstein is a gem to work with," Daniels stated, "as she takes a personal interest in her guests and their work. Her hands on approach to identifying strengths and conveying those to the audience is done with care and precision. I'm looking forward to future conversations with Tippy and her crew."

    Daniels' work has been widely praised. Midwest Book Review stated, "Genetically Privileged is an insightful spin of science fiction exploring genetic engineering, recommended." Kirkus Review stated, "Daniels skillfully develops a sense of threat. An inventive, intriguing novel. Animated plot and thoughtful questions posed about genetic manipulation.”

    About 'Genetically Conflicted', Midwest Book Review stated, "The sequel to A. W. Daniels' science fiction thriller 'Genetically Privileged', 'Genetically Conflicted', continues to demonstrate Daniel's narrative storytelling skills as he expands on his complexly woven world of the future. A solid entertainment from beginning to end, 'Genetically Conflicted' is very highly recommended reading for all science fiction enthusiasts."

    In the storyline of 'Genetically Privileged', nature disappoints a young couple's aspirations of parenthood. They turn to a series of fertility experts and finally an old friend. Their friend, as it turns out, has been modifying the human genome for a government project and the couple becomes entangled in a web of deceit. ‘Genetically Privileged’ is a socially relevant read, addressing the advancements of technology and science as Daniels speculates on the social impact of those developments.

    In ‘Genetically Conflicted’, the seemingly idyllic world of the genetically engineered students from ‘Genetically Privileged’ is shattered as they are confronted by a foe bent on destroying not only their lifestyle but also those responsible for their very existence. The students learn quickly that theirs is not the only reality on this planet as they find themselves in a fight for survival against an enemy that insist upon unconditional compliance in return for their lives. These demands become increasingly complex as the students find their adversaries to be from the same family tree as their own. The students are still as charming as they were in the first edition; they’ve just learned to become more lethal.

The interview is available at the ‘Books I Love’ show site. More information is available at Daniels' website.

    About A. W. Daniels:

    ‘Genetically Privileged’ and 'Genetically Conflicted' are the first two offerings in a series of works by A. W. Daniels. The author's ability to craft compelling stories has been honed by extensive travel and observation of the human nature. This allows Mr. Daniels to weave a tapestry that colorfully, and sometimes bluntly, exposes the good and evil humankind inflicts on each other daily.
