Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria: Can Nature Provide a Substance That Controls Their Replication Rate?
Bacillus nocturne, a normally passive estuarine bacteria, is genetically modified and released into the water at beach resorts by a rogue scientist in Nocturne, Opus 1: Sea Foam. What did the scientist design it to do, and how fast will it spread through the world's waterways? These are the questions that our heroine Dr. Kate Connors must answer as she and her husband Dr. Jake Connors track down the killer.
Dr. Norene Moskalski can often be found walking the beaches of the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, collecting sea glass, weathered minerals, unusual shells, and artifacts from colonial shipwrecks. A naturalist and environmentalist by nature, and a medical diagnostician by avocation, she has a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration and has held administrative and teaching positions at Penn State University and Temple University. She has spent most of her life preparing administrators and teachers to lead and teach ethically with love and respect for everyone. The settings for her novels are authentic vignettes from university campuses and places around the world she has visited. Each novel presents a variation on a theme, using literary techniques and musical innuendos to move the action forward. Her plots revolve around the unexpected: What if the most beautiful things in the world are the most dangerous?
