I am a terminal science geek. I tried unsuccessfully to have a geekectomy but I was told I will always be doomed to being a scientist

Background Information

I'm not looking to be the next Faulkner or Hemingway. I just want to be known as a good story teller, someone who spins a good yarn. I love science fantasy and thrillers. As a scientist, I also love to explore new realities. Anything to escape. I got my doctorate in medical microbiology from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago then did three years of post-doctoral research at the Univerity of Illinois Medical Center also in Chicago. I'm a virologist by training and spent six years (1984-1990) overseas in Kuwait working with the World Health Organization on the global poliovirus eradication program. I used to be fluent in Arabic but I'm a little rusty now. I've worked almost all my life inventing new instrument and chemical technologies for detecting viruses and bacteria and dissecting abnormalities in cancer. One of my patents, for the Invader technology for detecting genetic mutations, has been valued at $350 million. Unfortunately, I don't see a dime...but I do have some very nice plaques on my walls. My writing springs from my love of science and discovery. Virtually anything new catches my interest. I'd been toying with ideas for a book series for quite a while and finally got off my backside and started it.

Birth Place
Schenectady, NY United States

Doctorate in Medical Microbiology; forty-five refereed science papers; three "for pay" technology review articles, seven patents, three incredible grown kids, and an amazing wife.

The Angel of Death and the Demon
Liam Michaels, a wealthy artist and photographer, understands terrorism. While others may wonder how a human being can commit heinous acts of mass violence, he doesn’t. He knows the reason—they aren’t human. To struggling artists, homeless people, and a little crippled girl in need of an operation, Liam is a compassionate guardian angel. But in reality, he’s Azrael, the immortal Angel of Death, placed on earth to track down and destroy evil originating from demonic sources. Liam is a Voidmaster and can travel through and manipulate the infinite dimensions of the Multiverse through entryways called void points, which he places in each of his paintings and photographs. On New Year’s Eve, Liam steps out of a painting located in a Time Square hotel to intercept two men setting a briefcase-size neutron bomb. In the process, he discovers they are part of the Ba, a terrorist group spawned by the demon Raum, who Liam has been pursuing for three thousand years. Jean Delacroix is not just a CEO nor is his company, Connaissance Industries, simply the world’s largest manufacturer of computer processors and chips. Jean and Connaissance are secretly part of the Ba. Using an undetectable sentinel code inserted into all Connaissance hardware, Jean initiates a series of Internet thefts from U.S. and European Banks totaling billions. But Jean doesn’t stop with Internet thievery. In keeping with the goals of his master, he leaves a calling card at the sites of his thefts—a mini-neutron bomb. Liam must combine his angelic abilities with those of some uniquely talented men and women and some of today’s most advanced technologies to find and stop the Ba and their demonic leader.

Rise of the Fallen
A leading U.S. bioweapons scientist dies of an unexplainable neurological disease. A mysterious cocaine factory operates out of a Swiss chocolate factory, guarded by highly trained combat troops. Chechnya is destroyed with thermobaric bombs after an outbreak of a bioterrorist virus. And the beautiful but enigmatic CEO of a biotechnology company fights off a take-over attempt by a sinister Boston investment group. Unrelated as these events may seem, Liam Michaels, an artist, photographer—and the immortal Angel of Death—recognizes the insidious moves of fallen angels and he must act quickly to stop the rise of the Fallen.
