The Plasma Cell Report

“Whatever Can Go Forward Can Go Backward.”

In May 1987, a scientific discovery that threatened to destroy society became a dire crisis. The Presidential Commission on the Plasma Cell Project examined the circumstances surrounding this matter and presents its findings to the American people in this fascinating novel.

When a woman who appears to be in her late twenties yet claims to be sixty-three-years-old is admitted to a Cincinnati hospital, Dr. Philip Insbrook is convinced she is suffering from some form of mental illness. However, as he spends more time with the mysterious and beautiful patient—with whom he eventually falls in love and becomes intimate—and investigates her background, he is forced to accept the truth: Katie Shepard is inexplicably reverse aging. But Insbrook, a brilliant physician, has ideas as to the cause of Katie’s condition and races to find a solution.

Katie and Insbrook attract the attention of several powerful government agencies, most notably the White House and the National Security Agency (NSA), that begin considering the potential ramifications of exploiting Katie’s condition to induce reverse aging at a population level, a top-secret program the White House designates the Plasma Cell Project. While ethical and practical questions about the global impact of a population that never ages are examined, the paranoid and politically faltering President becomes drawn to the possibilities, but unbeknownst to him, the NSA has different ideas.

The Plasma Cell Report is a fast-paced, thought-provoking novel about a not-so-distant scientific breakthrough that could forever change life as we know it.
