Edward (Ted) Farnworth


After spending thirty one years “doing science,” I have retired and moved onto other things, like writing more. Writing fiction is easier that writing scientific papers because I am no longer restrained by facts and data. Over the course of my career, I have had a lot of interaction with university colleagues and so it is not an accident that my first book “Peers and Tears” is set in a university science department. I am well on the way to completing my second book. This time a humorous look at adventures I have lived through. I’ve also started thinking about the next book that follows Maria’s life in academia.
I am proud of my scientific accomplishments, my contributions to the study of food, nutrition and health, and our website MedicinalFoodNews that can be found at

Maria has every reason to be happy. As a junior faculty member in one of the country’s foremost biotechnology departments, her scientific career is about to take off. Being the only female in the department means that she has to quickly learn the rules her colleagues played by. Outside her comfortable life in the lab, her colleagues show her no mercy. It is frustrating, and dangerous.
