Experts need to Read before they Write.
As a Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS) with a BS degree in Microbiology, who loves reading medical thrillers, I felt I could write novels in this genre. My first published thriller novel, “Green Power”, deals with using bacteria to help mankind by using methane digesters as an alternate source of energy. However, bioterrorists get involved and make it look like this green power is the cause of an epidemic. I have completed writing my second thriller novel, “The True Virus”, and I am in the process of getting it published. Since I also have an AS degree in Computer Systems, I was able to use both of my academic specialties for the technical backbone of this new novel. In this thriller, bioterrorist use a DNA based nanocomputer to create a live virus. Even if you are an expert in a particular area and you want to write fiction novels in that genre, don’t you feel that it is better read a good number of books by different authors covering similar topics like yours?
