Linda A.W. King has a B.S. in math and science from Rollins College, an M.A. in literature, and completed the writing courses toward a Ph.D. in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Houston. She was a computer scientist for an aerospace firm and a senior technical writer for a Johnson Space Center contractor. Years ago, Linda and her family watched many Saturn V rockets launched from the Cape, and now she and her husband live a mile from a Saturn V and a Space Shuttle on display at JSC in Houston. They were invited to Florida and will long remember the fire and delayed roar when their astronaut friend was launched into the night sky aboard the Space Shuttle as the International Space Station passed overhead
