|Dr. Robert E. Farrell|
Dr. Robert E. Farrell received his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University, his MBA from Western New England College and his Doctor of Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. He is now retired from Penn State University as Associate Professor Emeritus.
For most of his life, Dr. Farrell has been interested in ufology. Twenty years ago, he began doing serious research for his science fiction novel. He believes good science fiction is based on good science. To that extent, Dr. Farrell is trying to follow the style of Michael Crichton (Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, and many others) and Arthur C. Clarke in his Odyssey series. Recently, he has completed the second book of the Alien Log series. It is entitled, Alien Log II, the New World Order. In addition to his novels, he has written numerous technical papers and three science fiction short stories that are included in an anthology, Sonoran Mirage, published by the Writer's Round Table of Phoenix.
Dr. Farrell has lectured many times at universities, science centers, MUFON meetings, book stores, clubs, and senior centers around the country, and has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows including Coast-To-Coast AM with George Noory. He and his wife divide their time between Thailand and Arizona, USA. He is presently working on Alien Log IV.
