As a former Fortune 500 aerospace executive for over thirty years and a planetarium program director for an additional ten years, Donald Richard Prescott has been planning and managing successful, complex operations for decades where strategic planning is an essential tool. A revealing stint as director of strategic planning and service on local government planning committees provided opportunities to speak to and participate in groups about complex strategic issues as well as appearing in a local cable documentary about transportation and community development. He has interfaced with congressional and governmental leaders, directly participating in securing millions of dollars of governmental funding for two local projects.
Prescott has also written and published award winning short stories (Concoctions), a science fiction novel (Daddy's Different), a nonfiction book about avoiding human extinction (Is There Time?), and a book of essays (Layman's License). He has written a full-length-three-act play, planetarium show/display scripts, two family histories, technical articles and business plans as well as edited several newsletters. Recent awards and published work include multiple Writers’ Journal “Write to Win! Contest” awards/publication, The Orange County Register Dreamscape Contest publication, placing in Writer’s Digest competitions, Long Story Short E-zine short story publications and internationally published short stories/essay in The Taj Mahal Review as well as awards on Writing.com among others.
He currently writes and explores life in Orange, California.

If you like reading a book that immediately draws you in and won't allow you to put it down until you have finished it, this one is for you. D. R. is a visionary with strong business and scientific underpinnings. In this work, political intrigue is interlaced with the mind control exercised by nemesis Orchid, a cult leader similar to those in real life--Jim Jones in Guyana, David Koresh in Texas and Marshal Applewhite in Rancho Santa Fe. A clear understanding of this work can be extrapolated to recent day events in which so many were duped into believing in one of the major players on our political stage and why worldwide leaders fear him. The author's insights into the workings and mind-sets of those in the upper echelons of the business and political arenas add credibility to the story. The reader believes it. It is well worth the read.
