Wyoming native Guy Worthey traded spurs and lassos for telescopes and computers when he decided to pursue astrophysics. Whenever he temporarily escapes the gravitational pull of stars and galaxies, he writes fiction, now in the slightly less rectangular state of Washington.

He plays jazz bass and happily stretches genre boundaries to find common musical ground with his classical violinist wife Diane.

A beacon of inclusivity in a fractured world, he likes both cats and dogs. Creamed eggs on toast is the earthy name of his favorite food, but once in a while he samples the celestial delights of chocolate.

Harry Potter Astronomy

J. K. Rowling drew upon star lore to name some of her characters, and this seems like a great excuse to talk about a few of the sky’s wonders while also basking in literary symbolism.

Sirius Black is the “Prisoner of Azkaban,” said to be a dark wizard who killed thirteen people with a single curse. As the plot unfolds, however, he turns out to be an enemy of Voldemort, a capital fellow, and Harry’s

“I began my studies with eagerness. Before me I saw a new world opening in beauty and light, and I felt within me the capacity to know all things. In the wonderland of Mind I should be as free as another [with sight and hearing]. Its people, scenery, manners, joys, and tragedies should be living tangible interpreters of the real world. The lecture halls seemed filled with the spirit of the great and wise, and I thought the professors were the embodiment of wisdom... But I soon discovered that college was not quite the romantic lyceum I had imagined. Many of the dreams that had delighted my young inexperience became beautifully less and "faded into the light of common day." Gradually I began to find that there were disadvantages in going to college. The one I felt and still feel most is lack of time. I used to have time to think, to reflect, my mind and I. We would sit together of an evening and listen to the inner melodies of the spirit, which one hears only in leisure moments when the ...more Helen Keller

I'm working on a stand alone called Wicked Fascination that will be out early next year. Same genre but not Gray Tower.
