About the author

Mary Ferguson Powers

Themes of novels by M. Ferguson Powers reflect the author’s varied interests, including preservation of the natural world and its creatures; challenges of building and maintaining loving relationships in a culture with decreasing respect for personal boundaries and privacy; influences of globalization on world events and how the U. S. and other nations relate to one another; public policy issues such as controlling the military-industrial-political complex and requiring the health care industry to be more respectful of its clients; the need for cooperation across governments, cultures, and societies to address global challenges such as climate change; and developments in business and university administration and management. Her long novels include suspense stories to help them present moral points of view and masquerade as genre fiction. Powers has taught microbiology, headed a university office of research, served as executive director of two university-business partnership programs, and co-authored two books on university administration. She has a bachelor of science degree in bacteriology from The Pennsylvania State University, a master’s in experimental psychology from George Mason University, and a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. She lives on an island near Seattle with husband David R. Powers and their two shelties.
