Rosemarie by Kenneth J. Dillon
A Novel of Discovery Science

Naive and wounded, but insightful and magnetic, philosopher Rosemarie dreams of terrorist threats and scientific breakthroughs. A CIA psychiatrist uses a fraudulent diagnosis to stigmatize Rosemarie and her remarkable theory.

A Goodreads reviewer wrote:

A long-ago classmate of mine wrote this book, and since I didn’t know him all that well when we were in school together, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It turns out that the author has become an interesting combination of historian, scientist and sleuth, and all those strands infuse this story and its characters, especially the eponymous Rosemarie. The book is filled with episodes of romance, foreign intrigue and bureaucratic back-stabbing, seasoned with fringe but provocative scientific theories. I enjoyed it a lot—it’s a good read and I recommend it. 

Readers say:

“Excitement and intellectual depth.”

“The ending was very satisfying.”

red blood cells

Acting in a coherent fashion, the red blood cells play a far more important role in life processes than is commonly known.

The red blood cells’ unique, remarkable role in oxygen and carbon dioxide transport sharply distinguishes them from the body’s other cells.  So do their anaerobic energy metabolism, peculiar biconcave shape, 120-day life cycle (with 2,000,000 new RBCs formed every second), iron content, and extremely high hemoglobin content (roughly 270 million hemoglobin molecules are packed into each one of 25 trillion RBCs). While their counterparts in many vertebrates and invertebrates retain the nuclei and organelles that mammalian RBCs eject in the course of maturation, the erythrocyte group in general exhibits certain “prokaryotoid” characteristics,
