Man on the Moon

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind
Forty-four years ago this week, Apollo 11 landed the first men on the moon, making good President John F. Kennedy's pledge to beat the Soviets in the Race to Space. On July 21, 1969,  Neil Armstrong became the first human to step onto the lunar surface. and Buzz Aldrin joined him while television cameras broadcast into homes around the world the less-than-perfect images, later augmented in newspapers and magazines. Michael Collins, the third member of the mission, waited in lunar orbit in the command module, until Armstrong and Aldrin were able to join him for the return trip to Earth.

In the fictional world I created for my novel, too much left unsaid, Mattie Connors is sitting with a guest in her Ohio living room, watching the momentous event. She is led to unfold the tales of her life, from her own fifth birthday in August, 1912, until that day.

You are invited to share her story as you read the book, available online or in bookstores.

Let me know how you like my story.
