About David Klamet

I was raised on a small farm near a near a rural town in Kansas. It was, in many ways, an idyllic setting that I did not appreciate until many years later.

I've been a sergeant in the Air Force, followed my interests in science in technology by getting a degree in Computer Science and getting the chance to work in the Space Shuttle program at Kennedy Space Center--a dream come true for a guy like me.
As my career advanced, I wondered more and more about technology: how we use it and the way it impacts our lives in both positive and negative ways. "Forerunner: Back to Earth" touches on some of these ideas.

I've heard the stories of my father working a field with a plow pulled by mules. I spent enough time on a tractor to realize how much easier I had it. I graduated with eighteen others from a high school built by the WPA during the depression, saw John Glenn launch into space on the space shuttle, and even had a private conversation or two with men who became billionaires.

It's said that it's better to be lucky than good. It is best to realize you've been lucky and appreciate it. I have and I do.

The gulf between my father plowing his family's field and seeing a Shuttle launch shows what we humans can accomplish.

I've self-published one full length novel. Draft chapters of the next book are available on my website.
