Read Sara Codair’s “You Can’t Bribe The Dead.” 1. What made you want to become a writer? I’ve always loved to make up stories.

The cosmonaut and I became very close on the space station. So close, in fact, that he began to confide in me. He told me he wanted to defect, so I told him he should come “visit” me in America. After coming to Cape Canaveral, I took him into my home. He wanted to visit an […]
