I can write your fiction, nonfiction, or technical book and make it a masterpiece, or we can collaborate and produce something truly amazing together. I can write that impactful newspaper article, op-ed, or essay for you. I can mentor the talented aspiring writer in you. I can guide you through the process of publishing or self-publishing.
I am a bestselling novelist, op-ed newspaper columnist, magazine journalist, freelance writer, ghostwriter, scientist, consultant, software and electrical engineer, business owner, inventor, ex-fast-tracked executive, and environmentalist.
You can find articles written about my work in newspapers and magazines. In a 2014 article, Publisher’s Weekly labeled me as one of the “Writers Who Rocked Self–Publishing” and reported how my books “exploded” on Amazon (their words, not mine).
I can write nonfiction and fiction in long and short formats with equal ease. While my novels are many tens of thousands of words in length, my op-eds and taglines distill entire complex ideas and messages into a few hundred words or even a single sentence.
I can write in the voice of any person, place, or thing. I can creatively put myself into the head of anyone, regardless their political, professional, and socioeconomic perspective, to deliver their words. This is what every novelist who writes character-driven stories does as second nature. We dream up a diverse group of people and things and then bring them realistically to life on the written page.
My two bestselling novels, Immortality (2007) and Ghost of the Gods (2014) are techno-thrillers about human evolution, the environment, climate change, and how what we were doing and not doing decades ago was setting us on a path to disaster and pandemics. Those two books also embody the message that technology alone will not save us and that we must fundamentally change our ways.
Publisher’s Weekly STARRED review: “Bohacz’s vision of a humanity that faces the need to evolve profoundly or face certain destruction is as timely as today’s news and as chilling a doomsday scenario as any ecological catastrophe can suggest…”
Kirkus review: “There is enough power in the premise to leave readers reeling. A novel that will surprise fans of science-fiction and doomsday scenarios…”
Sci-Fi Reader 4-Star review by S.J. Higbee: “This book manages to do what all the best sci-fi does—provide a thought-provoking, alternative viewpoint on the business of existence. I recommend you give it a go…”
Publisher’s Weekly STARRED review: “Bohacz provides mind-bending portrayals of factions vying for power and reflections on the essence and fragility of humanity. But philosophical concerns never obtrude on the fast-paced plot. The question of who can be trusted impels the reader to keep turning the pages of this highly satisfying and dynamic techno-thriller.”
Kirkus: “If you thought Immortality was powerful, just wait until you read the sequel…”
S.J. Higbee: “Bohacz manages to provide a gripping plot with plenty of twists and turns that kept up the tension right to the very end. I’m betting that you’ll still be thinking about it when some of your favorite authors have faded into the furniture.”
Over an extended period of eight years, both these novels had long repeated bestselling runs in which they were ranked #1 on Amazon in the techno-thriller and sci-fi genres. I wrote all the marketing copy and managed the marketing campaigns that elevated these books to bestsellers. So I know how to promote. In my prior careers as the owner of an e-business consulting firm, I performed a great deal of marketing, technical writing, business writing, and copywriting of all kinds for my clients.
Writing techno-thrillers, such as my two bestsellers, requires all the same skills as nonfiction, especially technical nonfiction, but is often harder because it has to appeal to a broader nontechnical audience. It requires explaining complex ideas in simple ways that totally engage every reader, from expert to novice. Creating a successful book in this genre requires not only making technology and science entertaining but also requires one hundred percent accuracy. Everything in my writing is painstakingly researched and completely realistic in all aspects.
You can find my full bio on the about page of this website. The abbreviated version is that I started life as a scientist, inventor, engineer, and environmentalist. While still in college, I was the inventor of an advanced electric car system. In my early career, I was fast-tracked from engineering to upper management. I then founded a successful high-tech consulting and software development company named CPrompt, which I ran for decades before becoming a full-time novelist and freelance writer.
I was widowed at a young age after the woman I loved with all my heart was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A few years after being widowed, I put everything I owned in storage and did my own version of Eat, Pray, Love by wandering the California coastline renting oceanfront cottages while searching for a good place to heal and write. Along that journey, I published my second bestseller and found and married my second wife, a remarkable woman and artist named Dana. So I have loved, lost, grieved, created, founded companies, wandered, invented, written about it all, and been metaphorically reborn more than once. All this life experience is distilled into my writing.
