Guest Author Julia W. Rath at #OurAuthorGang

Our Guest Author today is Julia W. Rath

Julia was formally trained as a social scientist and public policy analyst.  She has a Ph.D. in sociology and a post-doctoral fellowship in the behavioral sciences.  As a project director for the State of New York's Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, she worked on a nationwide study of Medicaid Managed Care as it relates to health and treatment outcomes for people overcoming alcohol and substance abuse. Her previous book Conquering Your Own Sleep Apnea the All-Natural Way tells the story of how she overcame her sleeplessness and breathlessness by making simple, common-sense changes to her diet and environment.  She was also the executive producer of the documentary film “About Face,” the story of German- and Austrian-Jewish G.I.’s who returned to Europe and North Africa to fight the Nazis in World War II.  Eclectic in her interests, she now writes fiction, popular songs, and classical music. Split Self/Torn Mind is her first novel.

Split Self/Torn Mind tells the story of the kidnapping of Dr. Theresa Hightower, a popular professor at The University of Chicago, and the need to rescue her before she is “killed, compromised, or worse.”  In the interim, she has undergone a cruel genetic experiment where she is of two minds in one body.   The story reveals startling truths behind this top-secret research project and touches upon the rationale for building powerful biomedical weapons of war in order to save the world as we know it.   As kindness and cruelty combine in unique ways, the book prompts the question: “Where is the split among the secret places within each one of us?”

"My consciousness is shifting," I said....  "I don't feel like myself," she said. And now I said, "My mind has two parts.  But I is she, and she is me. Who am I?  What am I? And what have you done to me?!!!"...
"Two consciousnesses in one body!" said the evil Vellum.  "Who would have thunk it?"
