At the start of his junior year in high school, Timothy becomes an orphan when his dad dies. He wanted to believe his dad was an extraterrestrial rather than the drunk that people called him. His dad didn't start drinking until his wife, Timothy's mom, died two years before. Like his mom, there was no funeral for his dad. Just strange relatives arriving to take him away. The relatives did not come back.

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.

About the Author

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). My blog is
