Dr. Michael S. Atkins is a marine biologist and a biological oceanographer, and has been involved in ocean sciences for nearly 30 years. His career has taken him into marine, terrestrial, and even extraterrestrial (simulated anyway) ecosystems to look at a wide diversity of living organisms that make a living doing some very extraordinary things. 

Dr. Atkins has been fortunate enough to work as an ocean scientist all over the world and even at the bottom of the ocean in deep submersible vehicles. He has worked and consulted on National Science Foundation Life in Extreme Environments and NASA Astrobiology Institute projects to detect life throughout the universe using the ocean bottom as a model. 

From 2000 to the present Dr. Atkins has been involved with education and public outreach projects around the world regarding marine sciences. He was a microbiologist in a segment of the National Geographic documentary "Sustainable Seas", and served as a scientific consultant and deep-submersible diver in the film "Aliens of the Deep", by director James Cameron and Disney Pictures, among many other EPO projects both on land and the oceans.

Henry and Tom is Dr. Atkins' first fiction novel based on his experiences with and love for the world's oceans and its remarkable inhabitants.
