Brannon Hollingsworth Welcome, brother! :)


Austin Boyd Man this is a lot of work. They have me down as two different people. Austin Boyd and Austin W. Boyd. Trying to get it resolved now.


Bianca Thanks for the add.

Your book sounds really interesting, I love Bioethics and all those types of books, they really make you think. I will soon have to read it. :)

Bianca... the novel "Nobody's Child" is the first of a series entitled The Pandora Files, each one wrapped around the theme of a specific thorny dilemma in bioethics. The next novel deals with a story about black market organ harvests, and another novel covers what some call "health care rationing." The stories stand on their own... they are not "issue books"... but at the end you're left with the realization that you have some thinking to do about these tough issues. Sort of like Jodi Picoult left us pondering the issue of organ transplants with "My Sister's Keeper."


Cassie I'm having a hard time finding Nobody's Child and H2O in libraries in my area! I've been dying to read them both for quite some time!
