More About the Author
Thomas P Hopp writes mystery and science fiction stories. He was born in Seattle, Washington, and lived his earliest years in a housing project on the banks of the Duwamish River. Despite a tough start in life, good grades at the University of Washington and a perfect score on the Graduate Record Exam got him into Cornell University Medical College. Discoverer of powerful immune system hormones, he helped found the multi-billion-dollar Seattle biotechnology company, Immunex Corporation, and contributed to their creation of the blockbuster arthritis drug, Enbrel.
His Peyton McKean mysteries follow a super-intelligent sleuth he bills as "The Greatest Mind Since Sherlock Holmes." Like the author himself, Dr. McKean isn't a user of DNA tests as much as an inventor of DNA tests. Dr. McKean is summoned when other investigators at a crime scene have failed. As often as not, his own life is in jeopardy before the drama plays out. Viruses, microbes, and evil geniuses form the core of his opposition. Not only must Dr. McKean carry off feats of intellectual power, but acts of daring that challenge the record of James Bond. The action is non-stop, whether at the lab bench or in a horseback chase in a hail of bullets.
Hopp's Dinosaur Wars science fiction books have been described as "Star Wars meets Jurassic Park." Filled with action and adventure, these stories follow Yellowstone Park naturalist Chase Armstrong and Montana rancher's daughter Kit Daniels in their struggle to survive an invasion of intelligent dinosaurs returning from space. The invaders have come to reclaim their home world, bringing all the other huge beasts of the past with them! Savvy science fiction, and enjoyable reading for all age groups.
