Novels and Novellas

Space Cadet Academy is a middle-grades novel that is futuristic but not quite science fiction. I wrote this book for my grandchildren. There will be at least one more novel in the series. The second book is being prepared for the editor.

Benji, Sam, and Dirk are just three of sixty young students from middle schools who have been chosen by the International Space Federation to be Freshmen at the Reykjavik Campus. All three are thirteen years old from different countries. Benji is from Spain, Sam is from Scotland, and Dirk is from the Netherlands. The three were outsiders who were looking for an escape from their home schools for various reasons. The ISF Space Cadet Academy would either make or break them.

This is the second novella in the series, A Journey Through Time. It can be read as a stand alone story about the Crusade of Princes, the First Crusade.

History rarely goes into the lives of the men and women who lived the stories told. History tells us that a man named Guillaume de Longpré existed and that he was present in the collective armed forces where the Duke of Normandy defeated the English to become King of England. He is also listed as present in the Crusade of Princes we now call the First Crusade. This is his story, the story of a man who lived as much in the saddle of his war horse, as he did as the Lord of several small estates in Picardy almost a thousand years ago.
