Few of us have a chance to do what we really love and get paid for it. After years of working in many industries, including television, new media, academia and others, I have been blessed with the rare opportunity to write books. I hope you enjoy them.Like many of my generation, I was enthralled by the flights of Mercury, Gemini, and especially Apollo. As those ghostly images came down from the moon, improving on each flight, I stayed home from high school to savor every moment the networks were willing to show us (at the expense of the daytime soaps, which eventually won the airtime battle). Viking landings and journey of the Pioneers and Voyagers to the outer planets followed shortly thereafter. As I grew older and matured into a career and family life, fond memories of NASA's "Golden Years" stayed with me. Then came the opportunities to write and produce TV documentaries about the space program, and now eight books. Of my recent titles, one of the most exciting has been "Innovation the NASA Way" (McGraw-Hill Business Education, 2014). There are so many wonderful stories to be told about NASA's accomplishments, and I've been overwhelmed with the positive reviews and press coverage. I've also had the good fortune to give a number of keynotes and speeches to various organizations, and the reactions have been thrilling. People in business love NASA and their adventures when presented in a way that they can appreciate and benefit from, and that's now a key part of my own mission: to bring these lessons home to the rest of us.This is a thrilling time for space exploration and I hope to share this excitement with many more readers.
