Author Biography

I have degrees from California State University, Chico in both philosophy and English literature, but it took me thirty years to calm down long enough to write a full length novel.

My wife and I live on the Island of Maui. I am an avid ocean swimmer, surfer, motorcyclist, former skydiver and all around adrenalin junkie, which you will see reflected in my writing.

I am inviting you to take the Arzat series journey with me and fall in love with "Alex" and my two "Arzats" the way that I have.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

In Situ is a conceptual science fiction novel by David Samuel Frazier. The plot centers around paleontologist Alexandra Moss, a charming young woman who sets out to discover the ancient fossils of dinosaurs on a dig in Utah. What Alexandra discovers there will change her opinion about the 65-million-year-old reptilian beasts forever as a living specimen is uncovered, one that survived the apocalyptic end of days. The creatures of this book are far more intelligent and sociable than the likes of those in Jurassic Park, and the central message seems to be that life continues on Planet Earth, no matter what the catastrophe.

David Samuel Frazier’s novel has a concept which is a little hard to get your head around at first, but once I was invested in the story, I found it a very enjoyable read. Fans of alien-style fiction, where bizarre hyper intelligent beings interact with humans, are certain to enjoy Frazier’s new and unique upgrade on the dinosaurs and their extinction legend. A particular strength of the work is the character development; Alex, Ara, Mot and Tom were especially lively people who leap off the pages and keep the reader turning pages to see what they’ll do. There’s plenty of action in In Situ too, as well as a deep philosophical theme about intellect, survival and human nature. Overall, I’d recommend In Situ to science fiction fans who are looking for something really out of the box, as well as to open minded deep thinkers.
