Woody has been flying since he was sixteen. He was teaching flying at the age of nineteen. After college, he worked for Boeing as a Flight Test Engineer. Working with some of the big names in aviation, he learned how the flight test community works hard to avoid the dangers inherent in flight research. Still there were those moments when the best laid plans failed, and things got dangerous.
Woody's experiences flying in Boeing jets, often with NASA flight crews, and his later service as a law enforcement officer were the base for Townsend's Revenge. His own true life adventures are blended in with his knowledge of space programs to spin a tale of excitement launching under rocket power into orbit, and the terrors of finding your way back when the space craft is coming apart around you. And suffering with the agony of betrayal and what's it's like to be surrounded by plots and intrigue.
