Kathryn knows a few things about human growth hormone and steroids: (1) when used to enhance performance in a sport, they are absolutely, wholly illegal, and (2) her estranged Uncle Richy ruined his life doing just that. Outside of the occasional awkward Thanksgiving dinner, Kathryn barely knows her uncle. But when Richy unrepentantly invited her to his research lab, Kathryn can’t help herself. After all, Richy’s drug-abuse days are far behind him - replaced by decades of research on how the illegal GH10 compound that destroyed his sports career and marriage, can enhance a pair of Siberian tigers. And the experience would look great on her college applications. It isn’t until Kathryn is whisked away to Richy’s private island research lab that she discovers the tigers aren’t the only ones receiving GH10... To survive the trip, Kathryn will have to be more than strong. She’ll have to be cunning, brave, and determined to beat the odds. Stripes of Gehenna is a tightly-written tale of intrigue and conspiracy that takes readers deep within the jungles of Papua New Guinea, as Kathryn discovers her own inner strength - and leaves us to wonder what strength lies within ourselves.
I often have dreams that wake me up. Usually, after a few hours of consciousness the dreams don't make sense anymore, or else I neglect to write them down in time. But the nightmare that inspired Stripes of Gehenna stuck with me all day and then all week. I wanted to bring that intensity that I felt, the intensity that woke me up in the middle of the night, and share that with readers.
