)-- “What if you knew something was a poison and...you knew that the government knew it too but adamantly denied that it was so. Would you be a terrorist if you put that certain something in the government officials' drinking water? Can one be a terrorist with a substance the government says is harmless?”
When her husband was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, author K.A. Shott super-sleuthed medical annals, neurochemistry journals, and other related scientific research discovering interesting information regarding neurological diseases and relationships to toxic substances. This research was the impetus for creating her novel “The Cr6 Terrorist”, a complex imperative in an unconventional telling. The style of this writing is, if one considers its synthesis of physical structures (letters/words/paragraphs) with artistic license, an embarkation on the novel genre.
How does this affect real people? Cr6 (or CrVI, Hexavalent Chromium) is currently a real life industrial metal used in a multitude of things such as floor coverings, cement, computers, incense, military tents and so much more. It also reveals an interesting association between toxic metals and Parkinson’s disease.
The Cr6 Terrorist is, of course, fiction but it is based on years of scientific research and in that light, functions as an expose but with a literary twist: it reveals the hexavalent chromium story from the inside...out.
