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.

D.R. has an excellent understanding of the human condition under a variety of circumstances, situations and mind sets. He is able to put himself inside the heads of his characters and write from their points of view. He was even able to show what it would feel like to be a sentient, artificial intelligence at risk of being recycled. He knows what it would be like to have your spouse of 65 years terminally ill and pass over when she passes. He explores what it would be like to be a homeless alcoholic who saves someone. He envisions what dying might feel like. This work contains many scenarios that give the reader reason to ponder. The stories are well-crafted. I highly recommend this work.
