In his more than forty years in the aviation industry, Dr. Robert W. Kaps has done a bit of everything. From being involved with airline labor negotiations, to working with celebrities including Peter Sellers of Pink Panther fame, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Frank Sinatra, and other members of the famed “Rat Pack” during his and their travels.
During his time as a Full Professor, Dr. Kaps published three books; Fiscal Aspects of Aviation Management, Air Transport Labor Relations, and Labor Relations in the Aviation and Aerospace Industries.
It is with this same writing passion that he now turns his attention to the fictional field. Drawing upon his world travels, medical work in cell wall structures, and gene modification, he brings a timely, engaging, and pertinent novel to the twenty-first century. Through the character of Sarah Birch, he navigates the murky water of seeking an orphaned individual's mother, only to find the awful truth behind her orphan hood. In discovering a heinous situation in her mother's past, she ultimately finds solace in a place where Mary Magdalene is considered a patron saint, not a misplaced prostitute. As Sarah comes closer and closer to finding the truth behind a scheme to use nuns as quasi surrogate mothers, she stumbles on a dark secret concerning a plot to replicate someone through gene manipulation. The results are compelling!
