    Default New Member From New Jersey

    Hello,

    I'm Phil Chen. I am currently living in Northern New Jersey and love to read realistic fiction, like War of Worlds, where the action is so real that a reader often stops and wonders whether the book is real or not. As you all remember, when Orson Welles broadcast War of Worlds in 1938, the portrayal was so realistic that literally millions were glued to their radios and some even manned the barricades with rifles in hand. My favorite science fiction movie of all time is the 1953 movie, Invaders from Mars. Whether science fiction or not, novels that literally make you want to jump in and make it all right or pack up your car and run for the hills provide the adrenaline for great reading.

    My background is eclectic, I've been an ocean research and environmental engineer, a trial attorney, and an investment banker. I am also a web cartoonist and web site manager.

    I have also written a techno-thriller that I just listed as a Nook Book. I will talk about that in the section reserved for authors.

    Looking forward to being an active participant on this board. Hopefully, I will add to the conversation with cartoons from my cartoon blog, There is Strangeness in the Universe.


    Phil

    Hi all,

    My wife and I (and our two children) have been in and out of Northern Jersey since 1982. All in Essex County: Montclair and now Maplewood.

    In 1992, we moved to Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, and during that time spent four years in Johannesburg, South Africa, and six months in Vancouver, British Columbia. We moved to Maplewood in 2006.
