Realizing these things, he became passionate, not only about Geology, Biology, and the physical nature of things, but also sharing what he had learned. As the father of two girls and a lover of allthings scientific, MJ decided to write short stories to teach his daughters science basics, and hopefully give them the inspiration that he missed out on that young in life.
