About the Author

The Algae Voices of Azule is my first short story and first attempt into commercial writing. By background is in physics. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in physics. For fifteen years, I worked in the public school system, teaching physics, advanced placement physics, calculus, physical science, and environmental science, teaching in high schools in California, Maryland, and New York, as well as in community colleges and in universities, however my main focus was on teaching physics to the masses in high school. I really enjoyed teaching physics to teenagers for many years. Seeing the light bulb turn on in students and being there when they realized the wonders of nature would always be rare and exciting experience, however, after fifteen years, I decided I needed a change.
When I moved out of public education, I went from the well-established and stable environment of the public school system to a high technology startup; fiber optics. I started doing research on fiber optic components, developing mathematical models for component performance as well as developing new manufacturing strategies to develop new classes of components. This was a really exciting time in my life because I would see an idea I had for a new component go from mathematical modeling on a Monday, to prototype fabrication on Tuesday-Wednesday, to prototype testing on Thursday, to data sheets sent to potential customers on a Friday. Wow. Things really moved fast in a start-up company. I was faced with the opportunity to putting my physics knowledge to work on new ideas and new products; to say the least, it was really an exciting time. Unfortunately, the fiber optics market crashed when the dot-com market boom failed to materialize, and the company went under.
After the demise of the fiber optics company, I was fortunate to have a fortune 500 company’s industrial research institution just down the street from where I lived. At this R&D company, I conducted research on machine vision, automated defect detection systems, holography, robotics, manufacturing systems, laser systems, and numerous small research projects that ranged from plastics manufacturing to health care components. I have the privilege of conducting research with some of the brightest and most creative scientists in the country, if not the world. I’m currently still working at this R&D company and am involved in research around the controlled melting

I was hooked from the very beginning. This book is great for readers of all ages and I would highly recommend it to anyone! Much like The Hunger Games, this series of books is about a world much different that we are used to. I got attached to the main characters and was continually eager to learn what happened next. As the plot unfolds, readers are constantly kept on the edge of their seats as the twins encounter many obstacles that make them fear for their lives. I could not put the books down and cannot wait to read Mark Cheverton's other books.
