Daylambs, a genre-bending biotech thriller set in present day Louisiana across the river from Vicksburg. As our contemporary bio-tech thriller opens, Karla Dushane, 28, is whisked into the Emergency Room of a Tupella, Louisiana hospital by security guard, Tommy Lee Harris, and paramedics. She comes out of a coma weeks later to a husband, Lewis, and a life in the small southern town she doesn't remember. With the help of a caring psychiatrist, Gina Celeste, she fits together the bits and pieces of her life: the death of her parents and only sister in an automobile crash, graduation from Boston University where she met Lewis, the recent move south, and a troubled mental history that included a breakdown after the tragic accident. Because of her memory loss, Karla is unable to verify any of the information and finds herself totally dependent on Celeste and Lewis in reconstructing her identity. In the course of finding out who she is and what's been done to her, she stumbles upon the horrible secret the town is hiding. She must then fight to save her sanity, her life, and the future of the United States.
