“I knew I was alone in a way that no earthling has ever been before.” - Michael Collins, Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 astronaut
This Space Available: Your newest book, I Love You, Michael Collins, focuses upon one little girl’s fascination with the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, set against the background of deteriorating family relationships. First of all...out of all the Apollo astronauts, why Michael Collins? While he’s a NASA icon, he isn’t nearly as well-known as his two Apollo crew mates. As an author, why did you choose him as Mamie’s letter recipient?
