Jeff Knoblauch


When Jeff first sat down to write his latest book, The Journey of Atlantis, it was with the idea that science fiction stories never really talk about the making of these massive interstellar vessels that we read about. But, how hard would it be for humans to make a ship 65 miles long, 2.5 miles in diameter in less than one hundred years? This required a lot of research into future and near future engineering technologies, along with human applications and psychologies. What to you pack on an interstellar ark? Lots of questions and problems to address that should be stimulating for the reader and not just focusing on the journey itself.

Jeff has been a scientist with a degree in chemistry for over 25 years. He is still living the normal everyday life of a working scientist with hopes of retiring soon (even in our thirties we think of retiring “soon”, don’t we?). And, also like a lot of people, he likes to look at the stars and wonder. Watching meteor showers are cool too. He enjoys sharing that wonder now in the books that he writes.

“I love science fiction, especially stories that use real and believable science in them. I want to bring that love and experience of all things science to my readers so that they too can know that the future is now.”

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Before I started writing, I used to look up at the stars and wonder to myself. Although it was not an original reason for my writing, I discovered that sense of wonder wrote itself into my prose. I feel good sharing that wonder with my readers.
What do your fans mean to you?
I never used to have ANY fans! You mean there are people out there that ACTUALLY like my stories? It is humbling, and I'm ever so grateful that there are fans that enjoy the destinations and adventures that I bring to them.
