Life may have a destiny for us all. Dr. Jerry Pollock's destiny seems to have changed from being a research scientist of forty years to becoming a spiritual writer of the arts. Jerry's first book, Divinely Inspired: Spiritual Awakening of a Soul, was a memoir published in 2003 with a second edition published in January 2009 and a companion audio book just out in 2010. His second book, also published in January 2009, was a biblical fiction novel, Messiah Interviews: Belonging to God, which is also available as an audio book. His stage play, Code Name Daniel, premiered in Manhattan at the American Theatre of Actors from July 7th thru July 11th. He is currently writing a biblical thriller fantasy suspense, Gog & Magog: The Devil’s Descendants due out in May of 2011.
Dr. Pollock was born Jewish in 1941 in Toronto. He didn't know what it meant to be spiritual until God entered and changed his life at the age of 57. He is now 69.

He has a Masters degree in Pharmacy, a Ph.D. in Biophysics from Israel, and further training in Microbiology. He is the author of seventy-five scientific publications, and is Professor Emeritus at Stony Brook University on Long Island. For the past ten years, he has embarked on a path to gain spiritual wisdom and share it with others. He is married to Marcia, his bashert or destined one. They reside in Florida.
