John earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and did postdoctoral research at the University of California at San Francisco.

Randy Ingermanson wants to take you on a wretched, miserable, dangerous vacation with a few geeky-smart characters who could never get dates in high school. But they're all grown up now - they're smart, they're savvy, and some might even consider them sexy. And they're in way over their heads on a high-tech adventure. Randy likes to mix science, religion, romance, and adventure into his novels. He must be conflicted. He has a PhD from UC Berkeley in theoretical physics and has won two Christy awards for excellence in Christian fiction. Yeah, very conflicted. Randy lives at an undisclosed location in the Pacific Northwest and serves the needs of three surly cats. Too conflicted for words.
Take a deep breath...it could be your last.
Valkerie is tough, beautiful, and has an uncanny knack for survival. When NASA chooses her for the first mission to Mars, Valkerie is thrilled - until she learns she's displacing celebrity astronaut Josh Bennett.
Bob Kaganovski, the ship's mechanic, is paid to be paranoid - and he's good at it. After a teeth-rattling launch, Bob realizes that his paranoia hasn't prepared him for this trip. He can deal with a banged-up spaceship, but how's he going to survive the next five months with HER just a flimsy partition away?
Halfway to the Red Planet, an explosion leaves the crew with only enough oxygen for one. All evidence points to sabotage - and Valkerie and Bob are the obvious suspects.
Oxygen is a witty, multi-award-winning roller coaster ride, with a plot that moves at the speed of light. The authors had hoped to work in some coll controversy on science, faith, the meaning of life, the existence of God, and possibly even the Coke versus Pepsi debate, but they were having so much fun writing the story that they forgot to offend anyone.
