I have always had a secret desire to be a writer. I pursued other fields such as math and science in school. When I began reading well-known fiction, my true passion emerged.   I've kept a journal since I was a young adult; it's been one of the best ways for me to develop my own writing style. I have written African Safari Bootcamp for Women, A Great Escape: Short Stores for Travelers, Mr. Thoreau Goes to Boston, Rivers of Words, and The Quick Style Guide for Writing for the Web and English Usage. My latest book The Car of the Future and Other Stories is a “coming of age” thriller. I enjoy reading, traveling, and teaching. You might find me trekking through the jungles of Africa, lazing along the shore of a verdant river in Southeast Asia, or hiking the Himalayan Mountains on the Indian Subcontinent.

8 Reasons Why Flying Cars Are in Our Future

6 October

8 REASONS WHY FLYING CARS ARE IN OUR FUTURE In Ken Wasil’s newest book, The Car of the Future and Other Stories, Clark, Jennifer, Rebecca and an international network of students design and build a “Car of the Future” that runs on “pure clean air” and flies through the sky like a bird. They must fight off a conspiracy of oil producing countries that is set on making every last dime from oil. The motley group relies on secret agents from a foreign country, a native tribe from South America called the Sequoia, and a refuge in a space station to assist them in presenting their Car of the Future to mankind. Sci-fi movies such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Man with the Golden Gun, from Ian Flemming, Back to the Future, and the Star Wars films have wetted our appetites for flying vehicles. And now Uber, the company that has shaken up the taxi industry and has declared it will soon have driverless cars, promises a flying car by 2020. But are flying cars possible? Will they be practical, safe, and convenient? The answer is yes! Currently fifteen manufacturers have cars that take to the air in development. Several of them have working prototypes and have set release dates for putting them on the market to the public. All of these vehicles are either electric or gasoline powered, have a range of 125 to 300 miles on a single charge or tank of gas and travel up to 5 times faster than automobiles. They offer a smooth ride on the highway and then unfold, like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, into a flying vehicle. They provide redundant propulsion sources, so that if one power system fails, another immediately kicks in. Lilium, a German concept, is 100% emission free and will be available in 2025 in the form of a taxi service that can be summoned with the touch of a button. The sleek Pal-V Liberty, which leans into turns like a motorcycle, unfolds into a mini helicopter that can land anywhere. In fact, the Pal-V Liberty Pioneer and Liberty Sport went on sale in 2017 for only $299,000 and $599,000. Run on down to your dealer and order one today! And the Delorean DR-7 is only twenty feet long and eighteen wide and looks like a mini jet car. Like the Lilium, it is battery powered. Additionally, it is “self-driving”, so that no drivers license is required. Amazing enough, it is due to be release to the public near the end of 2018. So if you’re ready to escape the commute and long hours breathing polluted air and riding on bumpy roads, jump into the future in a flying car.
