More About the Author

I was born in Brooklyn NY and moved to East LA when I was 3. Realizing that a cosmic mistake had been made, I spent the years between then and now rectifying the error, eventually moving home to the Eastern Sierras. In the meantime I earned a doctorate, taught college, and published several college textbooks in biology, anatomy and physiology, and human physiology. My lab manual and textbook in human physiology have been the leaders since they were first published and are now in their fourteenth editions (McGraw-Hill).
I always loved "what if" stories and have now written two, which so far comprise the Green People Chronicles. The first novel is Becoming Green. What if a new human species were engineered? This will probably happen, and that time may be sooner than we'd like. This is a hybrid work; part science fiction, part medical mystery, part thriller, part romance, and partly a homage to the mountains I love.
Becoming Green is a prequel to Exile at Dawn, where the Greens have been moved to an internment camp located in Aurora, Nevada, where Mark Twain panned for gold. Teenagers Tom and Gloria discover romantic love as they grow into Green leaders, and Tom's sister Lilly must deal with being a mom to the first Green child, the death of the child's father, and a love interest that threatens to bring genocide of the Greens.

I am quite impressed with Stuart's human physiology. The book gets into human body biochemistry like no other. It is quite impressive to to see that there good writers out-there. I highly recommend this book to any college student.
