About the Book
DNAlien is the story of a secret government program to develop life combining DNA taken from alien bodies with a normal human embryo. Taking place within an ultrasecret facility hidden on the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base located in Fort Worth, Texas, success ultimately occurs.
Years ahead of their civilian counterparts, the military and government scientific personnel finally hit upon the magical combination of alien DNA and human embryonic tissues that result in a being that hopefully will posses the traits desired from both sources.
Gene, standing for Genetic Embryonic Nucleus Enhancement, grows under the constant care and watchful eyes of a small group of individuals assigned to the Fort Worth base.
Knowledge of his existence is so closely guarded that only a handful of very high-ranking people, including the president of the United States, are aware of him or the program.
DNAlien follows Gene in a rural community north of Fort Worth after he escapes the facility and tries to evade the massive clandestine search for him during the worst terrorist attack on the United States, the days following the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.
