Synopsis

Test Pilot is a SHORT STORY approximately 4320 words long which translates to about 20 printed pages.

Space was a dangerous place and the new technology being developed needed to be thoroughly tested before others benefited. Members of the Skull Squadron performed those tests, often losing their lives in the process. Captain Gregg Johnson was the best the Skull Squadron had to offer.
Experimental drugs, which made him faster and more responsive, ran through his veins while he listened to the details of his next assignment. He was given an exotic new suit with stars floating through the material while at his side rested his trusty hand cannon.
XOXO 13 was the designation for an experimental spaceship Gregg named Hugs and Kisses 13. When a tiny thing goes wrong in space, it becomes a very large thing. Gregg pushes the forbidden red button to escape the certain crash he is headed to.

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn't kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel's skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad's fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)As a teenager, John spends most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn't beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for fifteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they're asleep.Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories he publishes for free because he likes you so much. (And it's good marketing. Shh) He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in the previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.
