I am the co-author of two books:
"Homesteading Space: The Skylab Story," was authored with Skylab astronauts Owen Garriott and Joe Kerwin, and was published in 2008, by the University of Nebraska Press.
"Bold They Rise: The Space Shuttle Early Years, 1972-1986," was written with Heather R. Smith, and was published in 2014, also by UNP.
