APEX is equal parts science fiction, mystery, and thriller, a case of genetic engineering gone horribly wrong.
When Jason, a wildlife biologist with the Forest Service, goes to Oregon to investigate reported wolf-attacks on livestock, he becomes skeptical. After seeing that five hundred pound cattle are being decimated by their mysterious predator, he is increasingly convinced that something else is responsible. Meanwhile, a scientist named Claire is conducting genetic research in a remote lab for unknown reasons. Is there a connection between her work and the livestock attacks? The only things he knows for sure are that she has secrets to hide, and that whatever is causing these deaths is NOT an ordinary wolf…
Inspired by science, technology, and innovation, Deborah Munro has gone to great lengths to make all the science in her novel real or plausible. She is a biomedical engineer who has worked in the orthopedic implant and medical device industry and is currently an engineering professor in New Zealand, and yet she has always had a passion for writing. Life sidetracked her manuscript for several years, but then she applied to Stanford’s Online Writing Certificate program in 2014 and was accepted. She graduated in 2016 and shortly thereafter, APEX won Inkshares’ horror writing competition and will soon be published. The manuscript has gone through several major revisions and is taking shape to read like the sci-fi thriller it is meant to be.
