APEX is my first novel, this is the link to pre-order a copy, but I have many publications in the fields of science, technology, and the art of teaching science and technology. More complete access to that content can be found on my business website, Munro Medical, LLC, and also on my LinkedIn profile, but I have handpicked the ones I believe my visitors here would find most interesting.
Below, you will find some initial articles on science and technology. Soon, there will also be chapters from APEX, short stories, articles on the craft of writing, and the complete report on how to successfully market creative work using social media.
