More about the author

I first read Tunnel in the Sky by Robert Heinlein when I was ten. It infused me with wanderlust and the love of good stories. While pursuing careers in martial arts instruction, planetarium education, corporate technical training, high school teaching, and computer programming for the last 12 years, I have retained my love of good stories and storytellers.

When I remembered a dream and wrote it down in 2011, I didn’t expect it to become a book; however, I’m open enough to think “why not?” Thus was born Young Mister Tim: Past Imperfect.

When I was eager to find and read a book about the astronaut training at Morehead Planetarium & Science Center (it happened in the 60s and 70s), I found that there are no such books. I decided to research and write this history myself. Now, with the blessing of Morehead’s Director, I am writing two books: personal stories of those who have run Morehead and an astronaut training era history.
