The Human Spirit Series is a series of thrillers based on scientific discoveries in medicine, physics and biology. It allows fictional characters to live in our world and address the big issues facing humanity today. Each book is a stand alone novel and features the main characters of Dr Hannah Siekierkowski, a leading American oncologist and Lawrence McGlynn, a British project manager.
The pace of scientific discovery over the last century has accelerated. We now know more than we have ever known. And yet there is so much more to learn. Humanity as a species has an appetite for learning and discovery which is innate and which has created vast improvements in the quality of our lives and even life expectancy itself.
The Human Spirit Series will examine our staccato approach to progress as a species: it will celebrate our successes; it will feed the appetite that lies hungry for learning deep within each of us; it will inspire future breakthroughs in our understanding by examining the very human failings that are holding us back.
