Welcome to my first ever Kickstarter campaign! The goal of this project is to raise enough money to publish and distribute my newest technothriller CRISPR. It is a novel about the 'what if' scenario of a company using the technology to create genetic defects to which they hold the cure.
Wondering what CRISPR is? The CRISPR/CAS9 system is a genetic engineering process that represents an easier and cheaper way of altering a person's DNA/RNA structure. This new technology represents a leap forward in our capabilities unlike anything we've seen before, and the possibilities are endless.
However, wrapped inside the exciting aspects of the technology are philosophical questions about what it means to be human. If we change our DNA, are we not altering our very identity?
Make no mistake, we are already using the CRISPR protein structure around the world to engineer new traits in animals and soon to fix genetic defects in humans. This is not future technology, it is already here.
Considering its lifesaving applications for fending off diseases and helping people live longer and fuller lives, we have to ask ourselves one question:
How long until we are using CRISPR to engineer our humanity?
This will be the first in a new series of technological mystery/thriller novels. Anyone who supports this campaign will have access to the complete novel around June of 2018, three months before the actual launch of the book!
