It incorporates both fiction and non-fiction (NASA) in one remarkable story. To be an astronaut is a dream for many military pilots, including mine.(less)

I always work in experiences from locations in different countries, situations from the cockpit or Pentagon, or current events straight out of the headlines. These are not necessarily mysteries, but plot points and characters developed from real life experiences. Mysteries could also include how emerging technologies work…complicated and complex but written in an entertaining way. Next book includes a mystery inside a thriller!(less)

Quotes by Lawrence A. Colby  (?)

“45 Bistro Restaurant, East Broughton Street, Savannah, Georgia The Gulfstream Corporate Weekly Dinner was being held at 45 Bistro this week, and the usual gang from Customer Service and Marketing always hosted a splendid meal.  Aircrew from all over the world flew into Savannah, Georgia for semi-annual training, as did new owners, technicians, and anyone else affiliated with Gulfstream for the week.  It was their special night out, all expenses paid, to show their appreciation for the business they gave Gulfstream. ”
Lawrence Colby, The Devil Dragon Pilot

“Emily immediately saw a woman’s purse on the table, then saw the bed was messed up and slept in, as well. Her emotions were now off the charts, and the ground on which she was standing on fell out. No, Ford, no, she thought to herself.

They both opened the bathroom door.

“Aw, man! Dude! Call 911!” Mark said loudly, as Emily gasped.”
Lawrence A. Colby, The Black Scorpion Pilot

“Zeke, having plenty of wisdom and seeing just about everything through the years, was pretty crusty among the junior pilots. His legendary tough attitude in the face of rules made the young guys laugh. Hard. Often seen in the hangar on the catwalk checking out the mechanics turning wrenches, he’d have a cigarette in his mouth in an area full of fuel. Zeke knew the flashpoint was so high that he’d never start a fire, so he routinely ignored the “No Smoking” signs.”
Lawrence A. Colby, The Black Scorpion Pilot

“The doctor and nurse met in the hallway before going to the nurse’s station to verify some of the results on the computer screen.  The doctor wanted to see the results of the blood work and CAT scan to see what they had.  His gut was telling him the diagnosis, nearly screaming what it was, but he needed to verify and line up the facts first.       “Let me see his blood work,” the doctor told the nurse. ”
Lawrence Colby, The Devil Dragon Pilot

“Hush.  I just read a report from the 82nd Reconnaissance Squadron from Kadena.  A RIVET JOINT crew that was doing collection on China a few hours ago, flying off North Korea over the water.  They intercepted a Chinese flight crew putting down their gear.”      “So what?” exclaimed Robert.”
Lawrence Colby, The Devil Dragon Pilot
