The Interstellar Woman of Mystery Science & Science Fiction Mystery
Ebook best-selling author of Burnout, The Y Factor,
and the critically-acclaimed Displaced Detective series, as seen on CBS Sunday Morning!
Welcome to my website! I am a retired rocket scientist turned writer who likes to mingle science fiction and mystery with a strong element of action thriller and a touch of romance. My style has been described as, "Hard-edged SF that wraps a compelling mystery around 'this is the real thing' space science...tight, tense, and gripping---Osborn tells a damn good story, and tells it well."
My very first book, Burnout: The mystery of Space Shuttle STS-281, "is a compelling, impossible to put down, first novel in the class of Skylark of Space or 'Lifeline'...It may perhaps be the most realistic view ever published in fiction about what happens behind the scenes at NASA."
My Displaced Detective books "are like literary crack. I fell in love with [Osborn's] characters and her world so completely that Iíve been telling all my friends ĎYOU MUST READ THESE!í And yes, Iíve been doing so in all caps."
If you like hard science fiction, exciting cliffhangers, mysterious situations, and determined, passionate characters, push farther into my site and see what I have going!
