Homer Hadley Hickam Jr. is an American author, Vietnam veteran, and a former NASA engineer who trained the first Japanese astronauts. His 1998 memoir Rocket Boys (also published as October Sky) was a New York Times Best Seller and was the basis for the 1999 film October Sky.

Hickam's body of written work also includes several additional best-selling memoirs and novels, including the "Josh Thurlow" historical fiction novels and his 2015 best-selling Carrying Albert Home: The Somewhat True Story of a Man, his Wife, and her Alligator.

We're thrilled to have this master storyteller with us to talk about growing up as the son of a coal miner in West Virginia, his vital work on the space program as a NASA aerospace engineer, and his career as a best-selling author.
