Williamson’s latest release, Replication (Zondervan), tells the story
of Martyr, a clone who escapes the facility where he has lived his
entire life. Jill says, “Cloning is a controversial topic, and people
are quick to praise or slam the book based on their beliefs.”

Jill
did an interview with Nicole O’Dell on Teen Talk Radio in early
December 2011, where she talked about the book and cloning. “The overall
story,” Jill says, “isn’t so much about the science or ethics of
cloning humans. It’s about the characters. I wanted to write about how
cloned humans might be treated. Would they have the same rights as the
rest of us? And what might their existence say about a creator God?”
