About the Author:
Like his protagonist, Graeme Simsion does not shy away from a challenge. Deciding at fifty to sell his successful consulting firm, he took a leap and tried his hand at writing. Enrolling in a screenwriting course that eventually turned a script into a novel, THE ROSIE PROJECT sold in heated auctions in over 35 territories. His screen adaptation of THE ROSIE PROJECT won the Australian Writers Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script and has been optioned to Sony Pictures. Now a full-time novelist, Simsion has more books on the way, including a sequel: THE ROSIE EFFECT.
Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who's decided it's time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She also is strangely beguiling, fiery, and intelligent. And while Don quickly disqualifies her as a candidate for the Wife Project, as a DNA expert Don is particularly suited to help Rosie on her own quest: identifying her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on the Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie--and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love, it finds you.
