About the Author
Amy Rogers, MD, PhD, is a Harvard-educated scientist, professor, award-winning author, and critic who switched from teaching university biology classes to reviewing, writing, and publishing science-themed thriller fiction. Her novels Reversion, The Han Agent, and Petroplague use real science and medicine to create plausible, frightening scenarios in the style of Michael Crichton. Compelling characters and fictionalized science-not science fiction-make her books page-turners that seamlessly blend reality and imagination. Her nonfiction articles about science and engineering behind the scenes of everyday life first appeared in the Inside Arden newspaper and are now collected in her book Science in the Neighborhood. During the pandemic crisis of 2020, she became a trusted source of calm, accurate, accessible science information to a grateful audience through her blog at, as well as public speaking with Q&A (via zoom, of course).Dr. Rogers is a sought-after speaker who delivers lectures around the country. A member of International Thriller Writers, she served as a judge for ITW's Thriller Awards and has twice been a panelist at ThrillerFest in New York; a panel moderator at Left Coast Crime; keynote speaker at the University of the Pacific Conference on Creative Writing, and the Renaissance Society Forum; guest author at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; and many other venues for writers, readers, and the general public.
