Short Story Science

I marvel at people who write freelance during the day, blog, and work on a book seemingly all at the same time. They have kids too! Alas, my reality is not that. However slowly, I am working on a collection of Short Story Science. "Scientific stories that give the beautiful breadth and depth of microbiology, the immune system, infectious diseases, their diagnoses, and the chemicals we use to treat them. History and current events and art and music all have a role in these stories, stories that contain the passion I have for science." I said to an editor, a long time ago. Stay tuned. I am at that point where the 14 stories have some shape.
