Dete Meserve, Authorfullsizeoutput_3614

There is magic in the night sky. When I was ten, my parents took us camping in Southern Illinois, and I remember stepping out of my tent in the middle of the night and seeing the stars blazing high above me against an inky-blue sky. The longer I stared at the sparkling white dots rising above the towering oak trees, the more I noticed thousands and thousands of stars that had been invisible to me at home. As the Milky Way arched above me, I remember feeling a deep wonder and awe—a sense that I was connected to a world far more grand and mysterious than I had ever imagined.

My grandmother also worked at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center (now Johnson Space Center) during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, and the photos she sent from those missions made me curious about the moon and all the wonders in the night sky.

My love for the stars has followed me into my adult life, where I’ve been an executive producer of an astronomy series for kids, Ready Jet Go! on PBS Kids (US) and around the world. While working on the series, I began to see that there is a profound connection between all we are discovering in the realm of the stars, and the universe of emotions within ourselves.

I’m excited to share The Space Between with you and hope you’ll keep turning the pages for a story about rediscovering a love that’s been right in front of us all along. In the universe, as in love, so many of our most important discoveries are made when we look past what seems to be true, when we find ways around our blind spots, and when we discover new ways to see through the darkness into the light.

Yours,

Dete

Dete Meserve is the author of three novels including the best-selling and multi-award-winning novel “Good Sam,” about the search for an anonymous Good Samaritan leaving $100,000 on Los Angeles doorsteps.  She adapted the novel into a screenplay and the film is in pre-production with an eye toward a Spring 2019 worldwide premiere on a network to be announced soon!

The sequel to “Good Sam”—“Perfectly Good Crime”—is about the search for the anonymous group behind several large-scale giving events for the poor and the possible connection to a series of sophisticated heists of some of the most opulent estates in America.

Meserve’s next novel, “The Space Between” will be published by Lake Union Publishing in July 2018.  The story is about astronomer Sarah Mayfield who returns home to find that her husband of fifteen years has disappeared, leaving behind a gun in the nightstand and a video security system that’s been wiped clean.
