Personal: On Becoming a Ufologist

I know that my choice to research UFOs has alienated me from an even larger portion of the population than I already was.  When I taught human evolution some people literally believed I was Satan.  So now that I am both an evolutionist and a ufologist, I guess I am doubly ostracized from mainstream culture.  But both are real.  Evolution happens.  UFOs exist.  I became an evolutionist because that was my primary study in school and the theory is as certain as heliocentrism.  I became a ufologist because my best friends saw a large, black triangular UFO close up, and I wanted to join them in their quest for the truth–because I love them.  These choices have made me an outcast in this culture.  So be it.  I have made a lot of choices in my life that I truly regret.  But being an evolutionist and a ufologist are not among them.  My heart is filled with wonder, not shame.

Young Adult Reader Reacts to Saucerville

Recently, a young woman I know read Saucerville.  Here is what she had to say:

“I just finished Saucerville, I loved it! I really enjoyed the references to pop culture. Great imagery. It has some real creepy parts to it. You’re going to give kids nightmares. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! Bravo Jordan.”

If this is any indication of how young adults will respond to the series, then I think it just might fly…eventually.
