Overview

John Kemp awoke that morning thinking that today would be just like any another day, he was wrong. It would turn out to be the worst day of his life. With a recession looming and the economy tanking, he and his team of automotive engineers would lose their jobs, their research and have their lives changed forever.

Not wanting to give up on years of hard work, they devised a plan to keep their research and their dreams alive. Working for a solution to sustain diesel fuel for extreme mileage, they would call that solution, sustainability. While searching for sustainability, they discovered something that would change our world forever. Others would steal or kill to obtain this new technology. Running for their lives they continued to develop their technology, trying to learn its full capabilities and just what purpose it was to be used for.

Treachery and deceit, even from the ones they loved. They found themselves fighting to achieve their dreams...the dreams of touching a star.

Follow John Kemp and his unusual band of misfits, as they journey where others have only dreamt of going.

Meet the Author

B.E. Wilson was born in small town Ohio, south-western to be exact. His family emigrated from the hills of southern Kentucky, settling into what is now known as The Great Miami Valley. Coming from a long line of coal miners that were now trying out their hand, as steel workers.

His mother being nine of ten children, he was born into a rather quite large family, with every imaginable descent thrown in. He considers himself somewhat of a Heinz 57, nobody actually knows what's all in the bottle, but there is a lot of ingredients.

As a young boy, his 7th grade English teacher was fed up with him not doing his homework. She tasked him to write an apology letter for not doing said homework. In doing so he used a long list of humorous excuses he thought would make her mad, he was wrong. He used everything from the dog ate it, Bigfoot and Elvis stole it and were escaping on a UFO to he was busy being a test cadaver. Standing in front of the class he was asked to read the apology letter aloud, this he was not expecting. In finishing, his last few sentences were, "To tell the truth, I was just too lazy. I wanted to play outside instead. Next time I'll try to do both, so I don't have to write another one of these apology letters again." With all of the laughter from his classmates, he thought he was headed to the principal's office for some much deserved detention. His teacher, much to his surprise, she only said that he should be a writer and how much she enjoyed the letter. She found it entertaining and hysterical.

Finally B.E. Wilson has decided to take that teacher's advice. Finally sharing the stories inside his head from an overactive imagination. He is the author of the Highway to the Stars series. And with the stories floating around in his head, many more series to come.

    I loved it!

    I bought this book and I literately did not put it down until I finished it. It never had a dull moment where I wanted to take a break. There was a few times where I was scratching my head like WOW, I didn't see that coming. The book had one of those beginnings that what have you reading just to find out how much worse things could get for the characters in the book and then it levels out and keeps you on a level emotion just to suddenly change and get you excited about what is happening again. The story was well written and easy to read. It had parts where I was laughing, sad,excited,worried,and amazed some of them at the same time. I can't wait to read the next book and see where they go from here.

    Not to knock one's work. There are a few grammatical errors found. But, I got into the story and was able to overlook those errors. Clearly an Indy author, so congrats on that, and hope to see more. The best parts for me were the comedy and adventure side of the story, the old man in the story is a Hoot! I would recommend this book.

    I have terrible grammar skills. I'll be the first to admit I have terrible grammar. So when someone like me can spot all the whopping mistakes in your book, you've got a problem on your hands. Author B.E. Wilson needs to get some professional help to clean up his manuscript.

    I see the need for an editor but otherwise it is an enjoyable story.  I found the main characters to be well developed.  The team spirit to win against all odds was apparent. 
    Who doesn't have an uncle like Ole Garret somewhere in their family tree.  The plot and action was climatic and kept me engaged until the last page.  Overall I would recommend it .

    Not bad, easy read. It's a pretty funny book. Not what I expected at all, but rather enjoyed it once I got into it. I like the hardcore sci-fi stuff, thought this was the same, but it wasn't. It's four average guys who discover a power source and are able to get to space using it. Some action, some laughs, some bumbling villains. I enjoyed it. I'm not a book critic, but there are a few typos. I judge the story the author tells me, and this is a good story. I'd like to see another book from this guy.
