Jean Noel-Bassior grew up when space travel was just a dream. Raised in Hollywood, California, her love for journalism was something she would discover only after her career as a musician. Her leap into freelance writing came in the mid-1980s and the celebrity profile soon became Bassior's creative specialty. She wrote about Linda Evans' close friendship with Ramtha channeler JZ Knight for Redbook, profiled Shirley MacLaine for AARP, The Magazine, and did an in-depth cover story on out-of-body explorer Robert Monroe for New Age Journal.
As a child growing up in a difficult home, she escaped through the adventures of Commander Corry and his daring comrades portrayed on the 1950's sci-fi TV show, Space Patrol. In 1984, through a series of off-the-wall psychic experiences, she rediscovered the show and began tracking down the ABC cast and crew who'd worked on Space Patrol and pioneered live television. In 2005, a 20-year passion became a reality with the publication of Space Patrol: Missions of Daring in the Name of Early Television.
