An Interstellar Adventure – in the spirit of Jules Verne
Pursuing an elusive Space Marauder, the crew of the USS Osprey finds themselves stranded on a mysterious world. Their spaceship is dead, and they must find a way to survive on their own. To make matters worse, they are incommunicado.
NASA prepares a rescue ship, but where do they send it? The Osprey has disappeared without a trace!
The Osprey's commanding officer, Captain Dirksen, must keep his crew together and alive until a rescue ship arrives. He knows that there’s hell to pay if the entire crew doesn’t make it back home. When will the rescue ship arrive?
Someone is watching. But who? And who is behind the cryptic messages that seem to taunt the Osprey’s crew daily?
Chief Petty Officer Torres thinks he made the first contact with their watcher, but no one on the crew believes him. Will anyone believe him when, or if, they return to earth?
But first, they must survive. Where is that rescue ship?
If you’re looking for a story with twists, reminiscent of Ray Bradbury, this is a must read!

Flying top secret missions for NASA is hazardous to one’s health. The crew of the Osprey face dangers from: Cutting edge technology that is at best unpredictable; Pierre Beauregard, a skillful Space Force Captain gone rogue; a mole inside NASA that wants them dead. If that is not enough, now Washington wants them to return to Portae, the place that previously claimed the life of one of their own. Despite a severe warning to never return, the Osprey is required to lead a task force against the Custodes (watchmen) and their outpost. This misadventure propels the crew of the Osprey onto new exploits in Arcadia. Their ominous mission to warn Arcadia’s inhabitants is disturbingly short on details. What is the danger facing the unaware Arcadians? Who is their enemy? In Arcadia the crew of the Osprey stumble upon a threat to the existence of both life in Arcadia and on Earth. Facing danger on multiple fronts, will the crew of only one spaceship stop the duel attacks? Will the crew of the Osprey even survive?

The Resurrection of the OSPREY
The Resurrection of the OSPREY
The year is 2080. Kepler 186f, the planet that Pierre Beauregard used for a hideout, is now being settled by those looking to build a utopian life. They envision a world of social harmony and freedom. Their spaceport town, named Tranquility, is overlooked by a beautiful palace. This palace is home to the Fellowship for Transcendent Religious Universal Spiritual Tranquility (TRUST). Built upon the ruins of a long-past civilization, all is not as peaceful as it seems. Lurking beneath the palace is a dark secret. Not far away, a mysterious power, at rest for eons, is now stirring. Will it be benevolent or malevolent? Is the planet, named Serenity by its settlers, a budding nirvana? Or, is it hiding dark forces gathering to destroy Earth? The crew of the Osprey are determined to expose the truth, even if it kills them. And it just might!
