Philip Judge, who writes fiction as P. Gordon Judge, obtained a D. Phil. degree in astrophysics in 1985 from Oxford University. He is a solar and climate Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
He lives in Longmont, Colorado, with his wife, Terri, and dog, Nellie. He is a father, cancer survivor, amateur astronomer, part-time opera singer, as well as a "comedian" (i.e., really not very funny).
He wrote the ergo sum books for himself, following a difficult week at work, feeling the need to explore our changing climate from a different perspective. He cares greatly about the future of our children and grandchildren and is frustrated by the irrational skepticism. This series is an attempt to try a different strategy, a scientist writing science fiction, with a little science, a lot of fiction, and some humor.
"It is a privilege to do scientific research," says Judge, "and help to teach and mentor the next generations of budding scientists... and now I find myself writing. I can only hope reading my book(s) will make a positive difference to your day. Dubito is my first work of fiction, Credo is published as of April 27, 2016, and Cogito, which will complete the ergo sum trilogy, is undergoing editing (as of June 2016)."
