My inter view with Jay Hartlove for Daughter Cell
Tell us a little about Daughter Cell?
Daughter Cell is a medical thriller about cloning that explores the nature of the soul. It’s the story of two brilliant men, lifelong friends, who come down on opposing sides of playing God with cutting edge medical science. As the cover synopsis says, it’s a story about too much power driven by too much passion.
What was the inspiration for Daughter Cell?
This story resulted from a collision between Frankenstein and the loss of a child. Frankenstein is one of those great archetypal myths that makes you question your own view of the value of life. I have two daughters, one eight and one turning thirteen, and wanting to protect them is big part of who I am. Once I set these two concepts side by side, the puzzle pieces pretty much snapped themselves together. What if someone who had discovered a Frankenstein-like secret then had his own discovery used against him with the result of losing a child. At first is seems like a wild, out-of-the-blue idea, but it came together naturally. Continue reading

Author Ann Snizek weaves a tale through the Earthly residents of Tunuftol.
We first meet Krissa and Micah Wittek, two orphans who have been bounced around in foster care until they reach the home of Grandma Athey. They are brought there by a social worker. The 14 year old and 9 year old siblings are really the only thing they have left of one another. Then, one night, Krissa begins having strange dreams that she cannot understand along with hearing the voices of invisible hampster-sized creatures called Tunuftolates.
Krissa and Micah are then enrolled in school where they meet new friends, both attend high school. Micah, the super genius, and his sister learn that on her fourteenth birthday that she is part of a prophecy to return the king of Tunfutol to power. These friends go on adventures in the land of Tunuftol.
Ann weaves a very addicting tale. All three books in the series: Tunuftol’s Fortress of Light, Secret of the Shielded, and Jewel of Nirel bring forth the first three adventures within a year of Krissa’s fourteenth birthday. Krissa throughout these adventures learns not only who she is but finds the rest of her family that was once lost to her after the her parents brought her through the gate initially to their home on Earth.
I rate each book in the series:
Ann Snizek is a becoming one of my favorite authors to read and a good friend as well.
