Hello and welcome to ShellWritten, where you can dig in to things that are well-written by Shell (my not so secret code name). Pull up a chair. Get comfy.
On this site, you will be able to get an inside look and sneak peak at my books, both current and upcoming, as well as pick up a few tricks of the trade, if you are also of a writing persuasion.
Gulliver, here, is very excited because the novel that beat all my others to the publishing punch was the one he heavily inspired. And hopefully you’ll be doing the same victory punch by the end of the story.
After an accident in a genetics lab causes you to grow to 103 feet in stature, how then do you maintain your relationship with your girlfriend, who is by comparison little more than three inches tall?
That’s only one of many questions about the life colossal that is deeply explored by my unprecedented approach to a woefully untapped subject that has fascinated me since childhood: giants. Similar to the way Ann Rice “revamped” our views of vampires, my hope is that the intelligence, wit, and desperation of “two and a half” scientists during their “transformative” experience will bring to the role of giant a realness and depth that can endear them to any audience, especially young adults, who frequently struggle with awkwardness.

A growing experience that will surpass all others…
When Dr. Varkan is excluded from the coveted Regeneration Program at Oberon Innovations, he suspects foul play from his superiors. However, the discovery of genetic research of unknown origin gives him grandiose ideas of redemption. But at what cost? Despite his best efforts to keep his endeavors secret, the project prematurely contaminates Varkan, the assisting Dr. Harcourt, and bystander nineteen-year-old intern Derek, causing their bodies to grow exponentially, as well as the stakes. Their hopes of getting a cure are dependent on keeping their genetic miracle out of the clutches of the government…and even closer enemies, in a race that will take more than a towering intellect to win.
“I’ve read a lot of sci-fi and this one has it all – Romance for the ladies, action for the guys and very interesting science for any intellectuals among them. Teens or adults should be able to and enjoy this book. It has lots of funny and entertaining moments. Has many original themes about what being a giant would be like and what happens (both good and bad) when they try to integrate into society. For example, have you ever thought about what a relationship between a normal-size human and a giant would be like? This author has, and she is one to watch!!”

“The choices the characters make and the ways they each respond to the power they possess will certainly give readers something to think about and may well spark conversations about the practical effects of being suddenly thrust into a position of greater status.”
