I spoke with author of “Matt Miller in the Colonies – Virginian” Mark J Rose at the LA Times Festival of Books.
Mark J. Rose is a scientist, author and screenwriter. He lives in an equestrian community in Simi Valley, California, with his wife, three kids and two dogs.He holds a doctorate in pharmaceutical chemistry and is director of research and development at a major biotech company. He has been fascinated for many years with exploring the intersection of man’s basic humanity with the challenges of a rapidly changing technological world. Working primarily in the science fiction and thriller genres, all his writing deals with some aspect of the interaction of technology, science and society.
Virginian: Twenty-first-century scientist Matt Miller has achieved success beyond his wildest dreams in the American colonies. He’s become a wealthy businessman and politician, with a beautiful
wife and family, but the American Revolution looms on the horizon. When a prominent British leader mysteriously disappears, Ben Franklin summons Matt to London to help investigate the involvement of Patrick Ferguson, a man whose ambitions are to change the future. Unknown to them all, another time traveler, with separate motivations, will join them in a struggle across two continents to change the destiny of Western Civilization.
