About meJohn Olson is an award-winning novelist and speaker who lives with his wife Amy and two children in San Leandro, CA. John earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and did postdoctoral research at the University of California at San Francisco. After eight years as a director and principal scientist at a major scientific software company, John has quit his day job to devote himself to his writing. His books have won several awards, including a Christy Award, a Christy finalist, a Silver Angel award, and placement on the New York Public Library’s Books for the Teen Age.

About my libraryI'm finally writing again after being away for several years. My first book after being away is Fossil Hunter, a fast-paced Indiana-Jones-style scientific thriller that explores the clash between science and faith. My second book is Shade, the infamous "vampireless vampire book" you've been hearing rumors about.
