In an it’s-a-small-world scenario, Maryann Karinch recognized some of the science in Alastair Browne’s proposal to her literary agency. A long-time friend of the “Father of Telemedicine,” Dr. Jay Sanders, she had followed his leadership in efforts to create a medical support system for deep-space travel since 1994, when she published her first book, Telemedicine: What the Future Holds When You’re Ill. She knew she was dealing with an expert who needed to place his abundant research into a powerful narrative.
Maryann was elected to membership in The Explorers Club in 2010. She is an experienced skydiver and whitewater kayaker, holds an open-water certification in scuba, is a former pilot, and is an ACE-certified personal trainer. She holds BA and MA degrees from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
Maryann is the author of 33 commercially published books.
A new universe of opportunities is opening and providing answers to some of the most serious problems humanity is now facing. This is the vision behind the Cosmic Careers--and the good news we offer is science, not science fiction or pure speculation. It is facts about our future woven into a narrative designed for a broad audience, particularly people of all ages seeking a career in space industries.
We invite you to ask Alastair questions about your vision for a space career!
