About the Author
Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in my books! My principal interests are true stories of the unusual or of the previously Unknown or unexplained. I have occasionally also written some fiction. I was born in Memphis Tennessee and grew up in the small town of Saltillo near Tupelo Mississippi. After graduating from Mississippi State University as an aerospace engineer I moved to Orlando Florida and worked for Lockheed Martin for 24 years. I advanced from an aerospace engineer to a Vice President of the Company and President of the Tactical Weapons Systems Division in Orlando. I then formed Parks-Jaggers Aerospace Company and sold it 4 years later. I continued my education throughout my career with a MBA degree from Rollins College and with Post Graduate Studies in Astrophysics at UCLA; Laser Physics at the University of Michigan; Computer Science at the University of Florida; and Finance and Accounting at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. After selling my aerospace company I formed Quest Studios, Quest Entertainment and Rosebud Entertainment to make films at Universal Studios. I produced 10 films, directed 7 films and wrote 5 films produced at Universal Studios. I then formed UnknownTruths Publishing Company to publish true stories of the unusual or of the previously Unknown or unexplained. These include books about past events so unbelievable that most people have relegated them to "myths". I have published 22 books, 20 of these have also been converted to audio books. I have an additional 12 books in development.

This book is unique because it blends a historical analysis of the Cold War with the author's personal knowledge of the decision making process surrounding this famous decision. Special is the part of the book about the down to earth example given Reagen so he could clearly understand the technical reasoning underlying the basis for the this historical event. Reagans's Star Wars is a great read and any reader should like this book. I feel that most readers will like this book because the subject matter is very important to the history of the Cold War. I would definitely recommend this book.
