Douglas E. Richards (born May 7, 1962) is an American writer, primarily of science fiction and both nonfiction and fiction for children.

Richards grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He graduated from Finneytown High School, in Ohio, in 1980. He obtained a B.S. in microbiology from Ohio State University before getting a master's degree in molecular biology from the University of Wisconsin and an MBA from the University of Chicago. He currently lives in San Diego, California, with his wife and two children.

George Noory wrote, "Douglas E. Richards has been widely praised for his ability to weave action, suspense, and science into riveting novels that brilliantly straddle the thriller and science fiction genres."



This is an excellent book. It sits perfectly in the realm of young adult and children fiction. Good plot. Flows nicely. There were a few typos in the Kindle edition but not enough to frustrate me too much. ;)

I will say that I also loved how science was mixed with the unknown. Humans don't understand everything in the universe. We simply stand in awe of creation, and more importantly, the creator of it all.

Note: this is not a religious-based book. But what I wrote above is simply what I walked away with.… (mer)

Kira Miller and David Desh had a great potential to be instant bestseller upto about 50% of the book. However, it all goes downhill rapidly for the rest of the book. The downfall is so steep that by the end of it, you feel cheated. I wont recommend this book to anyone. Huge disappointment.

Based on the premise of realising the huge potential of our brains, I actually quite enjoyed this technothriller and found myself being drawn back to read more. It is a bit clumsy at times in terms of style, it has good creativity, the characters are well defined, but it is a bit too cheesy.

An enjoyable read with an interesting reality that builds on a number of technologies that already exist (albeit in a more primitive manner).
