With a Ph.D. in a communications-related field, I specialize in writing science books for the “next generation” of readers. Order my books about NASA leadership, Canadian astronauts, time travel and Mars now!
LEADERSHIP MOMENTS FROM NASA
Dr. Dave Williams (astronaut) and Elizabeth Howell
July 2021 – PREORDER NOW
How does NASA take on seemingly insurmountable challenges, recover from tragedy, and continue to attract the best and brightest talent? Space exploration is as much a story of leadership and teamwork as it is a story of exploration and discovery. Leadership Moments from NASA delves into the culture of the famed organization and examines the leadership styles and insights of NASA senior executives spanning five decades of human spaceflight to share the lessons they learned from critical moments where they took on seemingly insurmountable challenges.
CANADARM & COLLABORATION
October 2020 – ORDER NOW
This book traces how Canada grew from small beginnings into a major player in international space policy. You will hear about Canada’s space program from the words of its astronauts, from Canadian celebrity Chris Hadfield to Liberal cabinet minister Marc Garneau to Governor General Julie Payette. You will experience the excitement and challenges of reporting on a rocket launch in Kazakhstan, as Canada sent its latest astronaut to space in preparation for possible moon missions in the 2020s. And you will learn from the people who work behind the scenes on Canadian space technology and space policy about why we are doing this — and what we plan to do next.
THE SEARCH FOR LIFE ON MARS
Elizabeth Howell and Nicholas Booth
June 2020 – ORDER NOW
From The War of the Worlds to David Bowie to The Martian, and to the amazing photos sent by the rovers Curiosity and Opportunity, Mars has excited our imaginations as the most likely other habitat for life in the solar system. Now the Red Planet is coming under scrutiny as never before. As a new set of missions are scheduled to launch from the United States and Kazakhstan, this book tells in full the greatest scientific detective story ever.
THE SCIENCE OF TIME TRAVEL
June 2020 – ORDER NOW
Science fiction is the perfect window into the possibilities and perils of time travel. What would happen if you went back in time and killed your own grandparent? If you knew how to stop a presidential assassination, would time travel allow you to make your wish come true? Can we use time travel as a tool to escape the destiny of our future or mistakes of the past? It’s time to fire up the DeLorean to 88 mph, jump into the TARDIS hiding in plain sight, or warp space with the USS Enterprise to explore what time travel means for us.
