I had an interesting question from John in Kentucky this morning. He wrote to ask: "Why is his name Einstein?"

If you are talking about the great Nobel Prize winning scientist Albert Einstein, his last name is Einstein because his parents were named Hermann and Pauline Einstein. But I have a feeling that is not what John is asking.

If you are talking about my fictional science detective Einstein Anderson, “Einstein" is just his nickname. The character’s real name is Adam Anderson, but his friends call him Einstein because he is so good at science.


By the way, did you know that you can download a free chapter from one of my Einstein Anderson books? Go to:


Click the green button that says "Download," and you can try out an Einstein Anderson: Science Detective story!
