Just a little back story about why I wrote this book:
I was a biology major in college. He had planned to become a botanist, but later changed to pre-med because my college did not have a degree pathway for botany. I found that he loved plants, human anatomy and physiology. My favorite courses in college were organic chemistry and ecology. So with an eye on the Earth’s current situation, I’m really speaking to the future. My book reflects my concerns about global warming, species eradication, over population, deforestation, radioactive poisoning of the environment, destruction of the rain forest, and depletion of the ozone layer.
More about Mars, Jimmy and Me::
An Earth family leaves a polluted Earth destined for the Earth Colony stationed on Mars. While on Mars, a huge problems develops which threatens to destroy all inter planetary colonies. It’s a red sponge fungus, and it is unrelenting. It destroys by it’s shear growth rate and propensity to overtake everything from ventilator shafts to living quarters. Jimmy Levy, a young boy, unknowingly aids the Earth’s Martian Colony by illegally harboring a living and pregnant biological specimen from Earth. This insect and her progeny love the red sponge and decimates it thus saving the colony and humanity. Both the boy and the bug become heroes.
