About the Author.

In his debut scientific thriller, THE DAEDALUS PROJECT, William Mazanitis toys with the question, “What if ‘intelligent design’ were true?” Creating a gripping tale in the high concept scientific thriller genre pioneered by Michael Crichton, William explores the consequences of intelligent design on the social, religious and evolutionary future of mankind.

In his second scientific thriller, A CURE FOR THE LIVING, Dr Mazanitis explores the ethics and most current scientific knowledge around genomics and its potential impacts on society as we know it.


William Mazanitis was born in Bucharest, Romania of Greek parents and emigrated to Greece with his family at the age of six in order to escape communism. In Greece the family spent two years in a refugee camp, a former army base for political refugees. When William was eight, the family emigrated to the United States. The son of a doctor, William spent his early years in Worcester, Massachusetts where he attended public school. Even though English was his third language after Romanian and Greek, he graduated high school at the top of his class and was accepted at Harvard University, where he majored in biology. He graduated Harvard magna cum laude with a senior thesis on the biochemical aspects of the aging process, which helped to form an interest in the genome that lasted throughout his future years. Following medical school at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and a residency in anesthesiology at Yale, he practiced medicine in the New York area while attending fiction writing classes and writing in his “spare time” at night. He studied fiction writing at Harvard, Columbia, The New School, the Writer’s Studio in New York, and with Gordon Lish. He is married and currently divides his time between Pennsylvania and New York City.
