Author Biography

Mr. Koziar was born in New Jersey, but moved to Maryland to get his Masters degree in Electrical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University, and stuck around the general area. He's been married for over thirty years, and has one son who is currently serving with the U.S. Marine Corps. Over the years, he had collected Bible College courses and eventually decided to put it all together, getting a Masters of Ministry degree via distance learning from a small seminary in the area.

He currently serves as the pastor / leader / rabbi of B'nai Avraham Messianic Congregation outside of Baltimore, Maryland, USA. He's also a full time Director of Engineering at a high-tech company. He therefore straddles the worlds of science and faith every day, and this helps him write SF with a deep spiritual component.

He also is the founding vice president of the Association of Messianic Congregations.

When he's not writing or trying to promote his book, he also enjoys woodworking, raising orchids, photography and online multiplayer computer games.

Book Review

Reviewed by Robin Clark for Readers' Favorite

"Seeking Adam" is a book about a family that has moved from the fast paced city with their son to get away from their equally fast paced jobs. He is a police officer sending criminals to jail and she is a nurse practitioner patching up the victims of shootings and other forms of violence. The criminals he sent to jail are committing. They move to rural Pennsylvania and live there three years in peace, he, the chief of police and she, the town's “doctor”. One night, while they were sitting in their living room, their dog breaks out into a fit of wild barking, absolutely going crazy. Bob gets a shotgun and goes outside, turning on the floodlight, and comes face to face with a four-foot tall furry ferret-looking creature with moveable ears and two noses, obviously nothing of this world. He is shocked into silence and then shocked into sitting down when the “alien” speaks to him in English. She says her name is Twilla. She tells him that she is from D’linwaa, and that she is here to tell them of her God. She was on a mission with several others from her world to find the sons of Adam and Eve when her “craft” was spotted by a Norgratz patrol ship and in the ensuing panic she was accidentally left behind. The story tells how a few humans come together to help her get home and eventually help her fulfill her mission to indeed find the sons of Adam and Eve, while at the same time, bringing along the understanding that their God is also our God.

WOW! I am a Christian, and hard-pressed to believe in aliens; however, this book, I believe, is really just about how anyone can come to Christ. It grabbed me from the very first page and didn’t let go until the end. I was actually very sad for the story to end. I believe that this book is a “today’s” guide to understand that we all are the same, all forgivable, and all able to be saved. Kudos to the author, Pete Koziar. I was delighted with his book and will look for him on the shelf in the future! Cheers!
