A writer since childhood, I continued writing through college but put literary endeavors on hold to finish medical school and Family Medicine residency training. My medical career established, I returned to writing fiction.

“The light of God surrounds me.
The love of God enfolds me.
The power of God protects me.
The presence of God watches o'er me.
Wherever I am, God is.
All is well.”
Alexia Gordon, Murder in G Major

“She remembered watching a movie from some years ago, when she’d had nothing else to do while snowed in at a Denver hotel, something with Kellie Martin on The Women’s Network. A detective identified a singer’s killer by studying the audience in concert footage. The killer—a stalker—showed up in every film.”
Alexia Gordon, Murder in G Major

Unfortunately, I didn't learn much about the space program or Wernher von Braun from reading this book. It was short on evidence and long on conjecture, assumption, and pejorative insinuation. Von Braun was a footnote to the author's opinion about Germans.

Linda I see you're reading about the space program. My Dad worked on Mercury/Gemini programs and knew the first seven astronauts and met von Braun. We were in St. Louis at the time and he worked for McDonnell (now McDonnell/Douglas). I am a HUGE space program fan!!
