Books That Make You Stand at the Crossroads of God, Science, Technology and History
A scientist who believes in both God and evolution, Mark J. Rose is also an author who whisks readers back in time with his series Matt Miller in the Colonies, a set of historical science-fiction stories. Along with his curiosity and creativity, he carries an adventurous and exploratory spirit, which has him traveling and researching in-person many of the places he writes about.
For Mark, travel enriches his writing. One can Google a place, he says, but physically being there gives off an irreplaceable “vibration” the virtual world can’t duplicatee. For The Virginian, he visited Ben Franklin’s house in London — hardly a big tourist destination there. While writing the series’ most recent book, Architect, he organized a private tour of the Capital building in Colonial Williamsburg.
Mark is a director of research and development at a startup biotech company, and holds a doctorate in pharmaceutical chemistry.
