I am the author of the action filled environmental/medical thriller entitled, Green Power
. Since the book is about the use of bacteria for both helping mankind and causing an epidemic, my expertise in bacteriology strengthens the believability of this novel. I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology. I am licensed by the State of California as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and have been registered as a Medical Technologist with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists for over 25 years. As a medical scientist living in the Sierra foothills of California, I am concerned about our environment and alternate sources of energy. This is what inspired me to write both a medical and an environmental thriller in the thought provoking novel – “Green Power”.
After the renowned Microbiologist Dr. Ray Pendleton leads a demonstration to close down Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant, Ray is assaulted by two of Dirk Hendrickson’s fellow Delta Valley Militiamen. Ray survives the beating and is changed not only outwardly but it gives him the incentive to set up Methane Digesters as an alternative source of electrical power for Lodi dairies.
Dirk’s continued attacks on the professor and his projects results in a death threatening epidemic pointing to one of Ray’s methane lagoons as the cause. The infected patients are admitted to UC Davis Medical Center. Linda McCord, a lab tech at the hospital and former student of Dr. Pendleton, works with Ray to prove that the methane power source is not the cause of this spreading disease. Both Ray and Linda develop a romantic relationship while working together. Linda is devastated when Ray develops a serious infection from the bacterium causing the epidemic.
