"My readership has gone beyond my expectations to show their support and approval of the themes of which I write to have voted for me to be included in such a reputable publication. Such support is a strong motivator to continue my work as a writer while I forge ahead to explore the effects of technology on our society. Thank you to anyone that has been touched by my work as we move forward together to examine the evolution of our civilization."

Critics have praised "Genetically Privileged", calling it "an insightful spin of science exploring genetic engineering" and "An inventive, intriguing novel."

In a recent review, Midwest Book Review stated, "The sequel to A. W. Daniels' science fiction thriller 'Genetically Privileged', 'Genetically Conflicted', continues to demonstrate Daniel's narrative storytelling skills as he expands on his complexly woven world of the future. A solid entertainment from beginning to end, 'Genetically Conflicted' is very highly recommended reading for all science fiction enthusiasts."

"Genetically Privileged" addresses the advancements of technology and science as Daniels speculates on the social impact of those developments, centered around a group of genetically engineered children. In "Genetically Conflicted", the seemingly idyllic world of the genetically engineered students from "Genetically Privileged" is shattered as they are confronted by a foe bent on destroying not only their lifestyle but also those responsible for their very existence.
