Anna’s Secret Legacy will do two possibly three book signings on the opening day of SXSW Film Festival. More details announced next week. http://www.annassecretlegacynovel.com
Explosive new heart wrenching WWII love story Anna’s Secret Legacy is a stunning debut from Author S.A Williams, laced with riveting twists and turns, echoing the very real threats of today’s world.
When a beautiful scientist unravels a molecular formula that could save her sister’s life, she vows to keep it out of the wrong hands. But when the Nazis begin their invasion of Europe, she becomes the secret weapon everyone wants…
Selling by leaps and bounds, author S.A. Williams’ Anna’s Secret Legacy is creating quite a stir in the publishing world. A gifted storyteller, Williams lures readers into this carefully spun tale that will hold them spellbound from beginning to end. This engrossing read, her initial foray into the publishing world, is one that will captivate the reader and has been described as “a magnificent WWII epic” and “a great achievement.” Forged from history and exhaustive research, Anna’s Secret Legacy strongly reflects the author’s engaging storytelling infused with a great cast of characters. www.annassecretlegacynovel.com
Anna’s Secret Legacy will attending opening night at SXSW film Festival in Austin, Texas in March. Book signings to be announced. www.annassecretlegacynovel.com
The scientific community in 1940 was running rampant with rumors of more Nazi invasion and Nazi experimentation with chemical and germ warfare. The development and stockpiling of “tabun” which attacks the human nervous system, and literally chokes its victims to death, as well as “sarin” a more lethal substance discovered in the form of isopropyl methylphosphorofluoridate were in active production at a plant in Dyherfurth, which would eventually expand into a vast factory more than a mile and a half long and wide. Other plants were being developed for gas warfare including mustard gas, phosgene and chlorine. Additionally, typhoid bacteria, yellow fever, smallpox, cholera and diphtheria research was being conducted on unsuspecting victims and inmates. It was known that German efforts on using “Heavy Water” to moderate a reactor using natural uranium were ongoing in Norway. Heavy water was the key to one type of reactor in which Plutonium can be bred from natural uranium. See www.annassecretlegacynovel.com A suspenseful love story!
Professor Niels Bohr, a physicist, has fled Germany and is now in Copenhagen, having just traveled to the United States to visit with his friend, Professor Albert Einstein, who has also fled Germany and is living in Princeton, New Jersey.
In March of 1939, Professor George B. Pegram of Columbia University arranges for Professor Fermi to discuss the matter of nuclear fission with certain officers of the US Navy. Einstein sends a personal letter to President Roosevelt expressing his concern.
Even well after Watson and Crick discovered the double helix form of DNA in the mid 50’s, the link between protein and DNA was unknown. At the time of my researchers in the story no one would have known this connection. However, it came to be known that a cell’s DNA holds the code that the body uses to make proteins. As such, novel lifeforms, with different DNA than ours (or other DNA currently known) can create, as part of their ongoing life functions, novel proteins with new, previously unknown functions.
The reason that large pharmaceutical companies spend so much time and effort exploring unknown areas of the earth is to find lifeforms who have adapted in one way or another to use novel molecules which might hold biological function in humans. It is reasonable to think that in a hot spring, in an isolated area in Russia, there exists for reasons of heat, pressure, and chemical composition of the earth’s crust in the locale, an environment for a bacteria to have evolved in a manner completely differently than any other life form. These bacteria would certainly live in a hostile environment, and may have evolved sophisticated methods of self repair in order to safe-guard its cells from the extremes in which it lives. The bacteria would certainly, over time, lose some of this protein to the water around it, and when the bacteria die their membranes would rupture spilling both this protein (and everything else they make) into the water around them. It’s very plausible to think that if these protein chains were contacted and injested by humans, their DNA repair functions might work, curing illnesses and preventing other diseases from taking hold within the cell. As an example, cancer kills by mutating DNA; a protein which could repair DNA with precision would likely cure every known form of cancer.
Such bacteria-produced proteins could be a ‘cure all’ for diseased or damaged cells. Any molecule which corrects DNA abnormalities must associate itself in the cell with the DNA strand. Therefore, it could be easily tailored to cause cell death through simple variations of the DNA structure.
