Hello everyone…

It’s been a while, I know.


The last time I wrote was way back in January of this year.  It wasn’t due to a lack of interest; I’ve been thinking about coming back to the blog for months.  But let’s just say life has a way of making things interesting…

I had the chance to travel throughout Europe and even made an appearance in South America. Most of the time, I was attending and giving lectures at seminars. But in my off time, I was either working with the media or writing.

As to what I was writing? Well, this:

You may have already heard but my latest book, The Germ Files is finally ready to go and will be out on February 2nd. But you can always pre-order it through your favorite book shopping website such as Amazon or Indigo.

Many parts of the book were written while I was on the road as I encountered so many microbial questions and stories during my visits and discussions. While The Germ Code was a historical narrative of our dysfunctional relationship with germs, this book is all about microbes and us in the here and now.

This blog has been continually on my mind but finding the time to write here has been harder than I thought.  But the rush is over, the pace has slowed, and I can finally share my mercurial thoughts.  Just head on over to the POSTS page and you’re good to go.

Oh, one final note. That picture above and many others were taken by a fantastic photographer…

She’s known for her work in the music industry and I am so happy she found the time to turn me into a rock star (or at least a geek star).  You can find her work here: http://www.analoguegallery.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=82

With that…let’s have some fun and as always, hope to hear from you soon…
