About The Girl From Spaceship Earth:

The true story of a life intertwined with the utopian ideas of an American genius. A mind-blowing two-day interview with iconic futurist Buckminster Fuller in 1982 Chicago leads an overeager advertising copywriter to promise she’ll share his urgent messages with the world.

She has no idea what she is getting herself into, scarcely understanding what he is talking about. When his dire predictions come true on America’s worst day (9/11) she must face up to her commitment, which morphs into a fiery obsession thanks to unsettling discoveries about Bucky’s archives further confirming the truth of his warnings.

Her outsized passions threaten her relationships and her sanity as she grapples furiously to bring his ideas back into the world. This heartrending karmic tell-all memoir is about climbing out of comfort zones to find your own voice and make a difference in the world. It also gives readers a charming introduction to the ideas of a long lost genius you’ve probably never heard of.
