About

Who am I and why should you bother reading this?

Me

I am Thomas Harper, scientist and aspiring author. This blog is where I post thoughts and ideas on various subjects of interest me. It is also a way to promote my books, as well as books by other authors when, in my infinite wisdom, I deem them acceptable. Feel free to disagree with me on anything I write, but try to keep it civil.

As far as philosophy and politics, I am an autodidact. For science, at least as far as chemistry and biochemistry, I have an actual degree, research experience, and articles published.

My undergraduate research at Grand Valley State University was on beta-lactamase enzymes, which are the enzymes that antibacterial resistant pathogens use to breakdown beta-lactam (penicillin-like) antibiotics. My graduate research was using cryo-electron microscopy to study the structure of CDK8 module of the Mediator complex, which is involved in cell signaling and mRNA transcription. You can view my research publications here.

Book 2 of my Incarnate series, “Incarnate: Essence” is OUT NOW!

Other places you can find me (from time-to-time), since by now I’m sure you are just ravenous for the thoughts of such a towering intellect like myself, are:
