Meet the Author

Chester is a retired aerospace engineer and inventor who recently turned 80. He had several odd close encounters with the grim reaper, which led him to live a life where only a few have dared. He believes that everything that happens to you–the good, the terrifying, and the horrible is a series of adventures.


As a kid, he escaped a mortal injury from The Great Potato, it was just one of his few odd encounters with death. And so later on as a writer, with his friend Judy Burns, he co-authored ‘The Tholian Web,’ a spec script for Star Trek. The story became one of the most famous episodes in the series. Next, after a piece of thought-provoking advice from a veteran writer, Chester decided to fill his life with adventures. Adventures ranging from surfing, learning, performing music, traveling to places, and working as a rocket scientist. Finally, it was the loss of his wife Sarah when Chester decided to write his first book that encompasses his stories and adventures in life.
