Author Biography

Author Jennifer Lang has always been a vibrant and creative person, so it’s no surprise that she would turn to writing and set her hand to an exciting psychological thriller.

She is an entrepreneur, with her own independent record label producing her own music. But as she found out, life is a highway with many turns, exits and destinations. Jennifer had both feet firmly on the music path
when tragedy intervened and her mother became very ill.
Jennifer’s motto is never give up and as she faced her mother’s illness and taking care of her, she couldn’t just stop there. As she became a caregiver, the keen curiosity and investigative inclinations that served her
in college as a political science major helped her uncover that many of the issues her mother suffered from could be traced back to GMO’s. And that’s when the seeds of her book The Whistle Blower’s Confession were planted. Jennifer believes that you only fail if you never try,
so she turned her hand to writing.

The Whistle Blower’s Confession is a taut political thriller
where Kelly Anderson, an investigative reporter, who after the death of her aunt to cancer, discovers that the American people have been used as guinea pigs for years.

Jennifer draws on her many experiences as an investigator,
as a political science student, her experiences studying GMO’s and her substantial powers of creativity and imagination to craft a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages with story lines ripped from the headlines of current affairs.

Jennifer Lang is the author that is as courageous, as selfless and as determined as her characters!

The Whistle-Blower's Confession is an environmental thriller novella written by Jennifer Lang. Aunt Helee was everything to Kelley. She had raised her niece when Kelley's parents were killed in an auto accident, and supported her studies through the collegiate level. When Aunt Helee died from cancer after a long and grueling struggle, Kelley decided to try to do something about the alarming rise in diagnoses of cancer. She used her college training in journalism and her experience as a reporter to start researching just what was going on. Her first step was visiting her aunt's oncologist, but Kelley found her to be unreceptive and just too busy managing her patient load. A helpful nurse, however, gave Kelley some preventative measures to take, including avoiding GMO foods.

Jennifer Lang's environmental thriller novella, The Whistle-Blower's Confession, follows an investigative reporter's efforts to learn more about the effects of genetic modification on food and nutrition, and explore how the pressure exerted by the giants of industry has made the government complicit in their actions. Lang's writing style is casual yet compelling as she sets out both the investigative finds and the risks taken by her young reporter in the pursuit of truth. Some episodes in the story are chilling and horrific, especially the Agent Orange incident, which called to mind the life story and mysterious death of the environmental activist, Karen Silkwood. This story also left me wondering if I was doing quite enough to eat clean and unprocessed foods. The Whistle-Blower's Confession thrills as it educates, and it just might be a life-saver for some. It's highly recommended.

Wow. This book is incredible and so raw and engaging I could not stop reading it. It touches on a very real subject regarding all of the chemicals and silent killers that companies are putting in our food. This is by far one of the best books I have ever read and I believe it is one that will open a lot of minds and eyes to the truth we all need to face. It is heart wrenching and touching, and hit close to home as one who has lost family to cancer. The characters of Kelley and Grace are outstanding and such an inspiration. They gave me hope. The supporting characters were perfect and made the story very real. The detailing is great, so vivid and clear. It is written in a smooth and intense way that keeps you reading. This author has certainly grabbed my attention and Jennifer Lang, you are an amazing author and your passion for writing shines bright. I can not wait to read more of her work. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It is a MUST READ!

The Whistle Blowers Confession is a psychological thriller that goes into depth about a serious subject in an adventurous way. I enjoyed this novel a lot and found it to be very exciting. I liked the relationship that Kelly had with her Aunt Hellen and how close they were. It was a very special relationship and I loved how hard Kelly fought to receive justice for her death. I feel as though the story presents an exciting way to learn about GMOs and how they can affect our health. I found it to be a fun and educational story, I don’t think I would have taken the time to really learn about GMOs myself and I love how passionate the author was about teaching the readers.

I am really glad I read this book. The intrigue kept me entertained but the book revealed things I had no clue about and made me really stop and think about our political system, how big money is running our country down to how consumers are deceived and kept in the dark about what's in our food and how it effects us. So much revelation in such a small story. We really need to make a change. Good book. Everyone should read.

This GMO issue just got real! You can't just read this book and not think about what's going on. Now I see why the food industry fights labeling laws. Forget monkeys...this is the missing link . ...WOW!

The Whistle-Blower's Confession is like The Pelican Brief meets Silkwood with a GMO twist!
