My book – Lost In The Sky


Get it here

Here is the back cover description. 


Larry Evans stared wide-eyed at the GPS display. It couldn’t be true. He had to be seeing things. But there it was in bright colors on his laptop screen.

About an hour ago he had boarded a routine flight from Los Angeles to Denver. Just for fun he had consulted his GPS to calculate what time they would arrive. The position shown on the GPS shouted an ominous warning. Not only was the plane off course, but they were flying the wrong direction. They should be nearing Denver ready to land. Instead, they were 1000 miles West of Los Angeles heading for an unknown destination, somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.

Something deep in Larry’s gut tightened like a guitar string, and only he knew the truth. If they stayed on this path, it wouldn’t be long before the plane ran out of fuel, and crashed into the sea. The passengers on this plane had one chance. It was up to Larry to get into the cockpit and turn them around or die trying.



  1. I enjoyed Lost In The Sky. Your book reminded me of ground school I took in College. Twelve hours between the bottle and the throttle, white over white-too high, red over red-your dead and white over red-just right (I think) Your 3 free chapters left me wondering if the pilot was going to make it and why was his survival gear so far away…what is VOR? Visual Operating Rules?

  2. A VOR is VHF Omnidirectional Range navigation system beacon used to navigate usually in instrument flying conditions (in the clouds). Still around, but most pilots I know use GPS more these days.

    As to why his survival gear wasn’t close… bad packing by the ground crew?

  3. Are you instrument certified for flying? Your collared picture on the back cover was nice. Your Stepson does a nice job with photography. I do not like Liz’s character, I think she is a scumbucket! Your picture with R.L.Stine was good also. My daughter reads Fear Street and Goosebumps.
