Books

From sci-fi to space, I've got you covered.

With a Ph.D. in a communications-related field, I specialize in writing science books for the "next generation" of readers. Order my books about NASA leadership, Canadian astronauts, time travel and Mars now!

Why Am I Taller?

ORDER NOW - Is the human body built for Mars? NASA’s studies on the International Space Station show we need to fix a few things before sending people to the Red Planet. Astronauts go into space with good vision and come back needing eyeglasses. Cognition and DNA expression could be affected for years. And then there’s the discomfort of living in a tight space with crewmates, depression, and separation from the people you love.

Co-written by astronaut Dave Williams, M.D. and space journalist Elizabeth Howell, Ph.D. 

Leadership Moments from NASA

ORDER NOW - The NASA way: lessons on leadership, teamwork, and corporate culture. How does NASA take on seemingly insurmountable challenges, recover from tragedy and continue to attract the best and brightest talent?

Co-written by astronaut Dave Williams, M.D. and space journalist Elizabeth Howell, Ph.D.

Canadarm and Collaboration

ORDER NOW - This book traces how Canada grew from small beginnings into a major player in international space policy. You will hear about Canada’s space program from the words of its astronauts, from Canadian celebrity Chris Hadfield to Liberal cabinet minister Marc Garneau to Governor General Julie Payette.


You will experience the excitement and challenges of reporting on a rocket launch in Kazakhstan, as Canada sent its latest astronaut to space in preparation for possible moon missions in the 2020s. And you will learn from the people who work behind the scenes on Canadian space technology and space policy about why we are doing this — and what we plan to do next.

The Search for Life on Mars

ORDER NOW - From The War of the Worlds to David Bowie to The Martian, and to the amazing photos sent by the rovers Curiosity and Opportunity, Mars has excited our imaginations as the most likely other habitat for life in the solar system.


Now the Red Planet is coming under scrutiny as never before. This book tells in full the greatest scientific detective story ever.

Co-written by space journalists Elizabeth Howell and Nicholas Booth.

The Science of Time Travel

ORDER NOW- Science fiction is the perfect window into the possibilities and perils of time travel. What would happen if you went back in time and killed your own grandparent? If you knew how to stop a presidential assassination, would time travel allow you to make your wish come true? Can we use time travel as a tool to escape the destiny of our future or mistakes of the past?


It's time to fire up the DeLorean to 88 mph, jump into the TARDIS hiding in plain sight, or warp space with the USS Enterprise to explore what time travel means for us.
