Meet Author Jim Cronin
I'd like to welcome the author, Jim Cronin. Jim, tell us about yourself and your book.
I worked for thirty-five years as a middle school science teacher, but am now semi-retired, working part-time as an educator/performer at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I have been married for thirty-eight years to the love of my life, Diane. Together, we raised two incredible sons, and now have a beautiful granddaughter to spoil rotten.
I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in Arlington, Virginia before moving to Denver where I attended High School and eventually college at Colorado State University, graduating with a degree in Zoology and a teacher certification. I currently live near Denver in the small town of Parker.
My first novel, Hegira, a science fiction tale of time travel, political and religious intrigue, cloning, and imminent planetary destruction, proved to be only the start of a new adventure. I have completed Hegira’s sequel, Recusant, and am working on the third and final book of The Brin Archives, Empyrean. Retirement has proved to be an exciting journey into new realms of discovery.
In this sequel to Hegira, the Brin are thriving on their new world, but will greed, prejudices and old rivalries tear apart their grand civilization? Maliche Rocker, descendant of The Saviors, uncovers a terrible secret and must fight those in power, including members of his own family, to save thousands of innocents from the cruelty of his own people.
