Timothy was left alone with his inheritance — an unusual rocket formula and a different type of rocket engine. He also had an address to a place on the other side of the rural county.
Timothy arrives at a farmhouse where the high school janitor Eddie greets him with suspicion. Retired from NASA, Eddie has a Redstone rocket and Mercury capsule in the farm’s silo. Someone Eddie knew at NASA put the rocket and capsule there. Eddie called him ET.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Spotsylvania, Virginia and ended up living across the Rappahannock River in south Stafford County. From there, I commuted by train to the Pentagon to work on defense budgets. To keep my sanity, I wrote short stories. More than two dozen magazines published them.
I eventually escaped the long commute and politics to move to New Bern, North Carolina. A place my wife and I had never been to before. Here, I belong to several writing groups and I volunteer at a few non-profits that include writing grants for them.
I wrote this novel because I always had an interest in rocketry, extraterrestrials, and outer space. I hope you enjoyed High School Rocket Science (For Extraterrestrial Use Only).
