Jerome is our second US contributor to date. He tells us “I am currently retired after working as a scientific editor on the journal Physical Review Letters. My professional background was in theoretical elementary particles, with a PhD from UCLA. Since retiring, I’ve been working on my painting (oil, acrylics, wax crayon), as well as writing. I started out in poetry, then switched to prose: three murder mystery novels and working on a fourth one. A short story of mine, “A Quantum Tale”, (sort of ‘Alice in Wonderland meets the Schroedinger Cat’), just won a Honourable Mention in a contest by Quantum Shorts.”
