Bio: I am a retired research chemist and professor of biochemistry. My scientific interests are the biochemical and molecular basis of infectious diseases of domestic animals and rational vaccine design to combat these diseases. I plan to write about this subject, but in the format of a mystery/thriller novel. My other interests are in discovering and blogging/writing about the historical background of my hometown in Oostvoorne, where I was born and raised. Oostvoorne has the only castle in the area which was the summer vacation place for Jacoba van Beijeren the wife of the regional count back in the early 1400's, or was it?
