WASHINGTON, July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR) announced today its Executive Vice President Paul McKellips has released a new novel, UNCAGED. The politically-charged biomedical thriller catapults readers into a world in which animal rights extremists unlawfully manipulate public opinion and successfully shut down animal research in the United States, leaving the country exposed to an international bioterrorism plot that threatens the lives of the entire population.
"UNCAGED poses a frighteningly realistic 'what if' scenario that will leave readers on the edge of their seats. UNCAGED is a standout and thought-provoking page-turner that's destined for the big screen," says publisher David Lamb, president of Vantage Point Books in New York.
McKellips has written, directed and produced three motion pictures and numerous television shows. He has earned 20 Telly Awards and a 2011 Emmy® nomination for his recent documentary on breast cancer research. McKellips, a native of Neenah, Wisconsin, served in Iraq as a public affairs specialist and was embedded with four Iraqi journalists at a remote combat outpost in the volatile Diyala Province area during the height of "the surge." He has recently returned from the front lines of Afghanistan, where he trained the Afghan army and directed and produced a documentary film on Afghan culture during a five-month assignment through the Department of Defense. He is also the co-founder of No Greater Sacrifice, a charitable organization that provides college scholarships to the children of fallen and wounded U.S. soldiers.
McKellips will be touring the country this fall to promote his novel and is available for speeches and media appearances. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-457-0654 for more information on booking and interviews.
UNCAGED is available for purchase in hardcover and paperback at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Wal-Mart, Target and Amazon, or for a discounted rate at fbresearch.org.
Established in 1981, FBR is the nation's oldest and largest organization devoted to educating the public about the essential role of humane animal research in the quest for medical advancements, treatments and cures for both humans and animals. For more information, visit fbresearch.org.
