Default Sirius Cestris

Rocket Babe features many of the parts and kits sold by David & Evie at Sirius Rocketry, including the Sirius Eradicator, Cestris and Interrogator.

We converted the Cestris to a 3 engine fighter for the story line. The photos below are the maiden flight of ours. Several others here have built and flown a Cestris too.

Thanks, Verna! I must've missed the announcement of the third book. Just downloaded to my phone and will do the iPad in a moment.

While I mostly like the Nook Glowlight I have, times like this make me wish for a Kindle...

Thank you Bernard! If you liked the first two I think you'll really enjoy Ant Men.

Hi Paul,

I didn't know until recently but I have been told that Amazon has a free APP for any reading device, that allows you to download a Kindle from their site to an ipad, Kindle, PC, MAC, etc. I have it on my phone for when someone asks if they can read a few pages.

Personally, I mainly use our home PC when I download another author's books. We have all of Homer Hickam's paperbacks on the shelf and most of them on our pc.

Who is the model for the cover of Fallen Angel?! She's a knockout!

Her name is Rei. That's all, like Madonna or Cher. She & I are similar in appearance when I wore my hair that way and was in my early twenties.

Rei is Australian and one of Mike Jame's models but she may be retired now. If you go to our website and click on the Fallen Angel page and scroll down to the article about Mike there is a link to his website where you can see all he does. He also has a Facebook page but be prepared, his work and models will knock your eyes out! There's a link for other things there for Rei too.

He actually toned down the look for Fallen Angel but she is exactly how Randy sees the character Verna Starr; space pixie.

Mike is amazing and well known in his field. He's done lots of work for the film industry over the years like the big posters you see in the lobby when you go to the theatre. I think he did a couple posters for James Bond and others but I don't know which ones.

He is a great guy to work with and did a great job for us!

I like the way he worked the Cestris into the background.
