Meet the Author:

Paul Ian Cross, PhD, is a scientist, researcher, writer, and educator from London, UK.

Paul works in clinical research (developing new medicines) and he’s also a science communicator (presenting science to non-scientists). Paul specialises in vaccine development and has an interest in pharmacovigilance (the safety of medicinal products). His PhD research investigated the benefit-risk assessment of medicines, and how patients and the public can be more involved in their treatment decisions.

Paul’s popular social media accounts (@DrPaulScience) are full of STEM-themed content for all ages, but particularly for parents and adults to share with the children in their lives. Paul is a member of #TeamHalo, a UN backed initiative where doctors, healthcare workers, and scientists share accurate information about healthcare, science, and the COVID-19 vaccines. In 2021, Paul was named as a ‘Luminary’ at the G7’s Vaccine Confidence Summit, in recognition for his science communication work on social media.

In addition to his research career, Paul has a passion for introducing children to STEM subjects, particularly reluctant readers. By introducing science creatively, he aims to spark their interest, allowing them to gain confidence with their reading. As a previous reluctant reader himself, he understands how hard it can be. But it’s all about making reading fun and interesting!

Teslanauts by Matthew Donald
 ASIN ‏ : ‎ B0B6XRZF2N
Publisher ‏ : ‎ Matthew Donald (August 16, 2022)
Language ‏ : ‎ English
Paperback ‏ : ‎ 452 pages
ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 979-8986024806

Book Description:

“In the spring of 1922, seventeen-year-old Raymond Calvert’s life changes forever when searching for answers about his missing father. Underneath the Hudson River in New York is a secret base for agents called Teslanauts, named in honor of their leader Nikola Tesla, that help the world in the shadows with advanced electrical technology. Learning his father was a Teslanaut agent himself, Raymond joins the organization to find out what happened, roping the Brooklyn teenager into a hidden world of mechs, hovering machines, lightning-armed biplanes, and super-speed suits. However, the world still reels from the recent Great War, and none so much as the remnants of the Central Powers. In hopes of regaining their former glory, they form a new faction called the Oberschock Federation, armed with similarly advanced technology as the Teslanauts but far more devastating and destructive. And somehow, Raymond’s father might have been involved with Oberschock as well. While Raymond might be desperate for answers, the world hangs in the balance, and only the Teslanauts can keep the Great War from starting once more.”
