VJ Books Presents Author Michael Ransom (aka Dr. Michael E. Burczynski, Ph.D.)!

Author Michael RansomMichael Ransom is the pen name of Dr. Michael E. Burczynski, Ph.D.. He grew up in rural Mississippi but has lived in a variety of locales including Idaho, London, Philadelphia, and Boston. He is the author of the upcoming mystery/thriller debut entitled The Ripper Gene.

He is a pharmaceutical executive by day and an author by night. He double-majored in Chemistry and English during undergraduate studies at Mississippi College and University College London, then studied creative writing at the University of Idaho before finishing a PhD in Pharmacology from the University of Pennsylvania.

He is a member of several writer's associations including International Thriller Writers (ITW), the Author's Guild, Poets & Writers, and The Academy of American Poets. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and a member of several scientific organizations including the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, the American Association of Cancer Research, the Society of Toxicology, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

His scientific research has been covered in The New York Times, and he has authored more than 100 book chapters, review articles and research papers on scientific topics.

Part of the author's real-life research involves scanning the 3.2 billion nucleotides of human DNA to identify tiny alterations that influence individuals' susceptibility to disease. Because of his background in modern molecular biology, his fiction is suffused with cutting edge science and genetics. His debut novel, The Ripper Gene, introduces readers to Dr. Lucas Madden, a neuroscientist-turned-FBI profiler who applies a controversial genetic approach to behavioral profiling during a serial killer investigation in the Mississippi Delta.

He currently resides in northern New Jersey outside Manhattan.
