The Richard Jackson Saga
Book 8: Oxford University

An adventure filled series of a young man's coming of age in the late 1950's. Starting in the summer before his freshman year it follows him through high school and beyond. He finds wealth as an inventor and fame in Hollywood as he searches for a girlfriend. Wealth and fame prove easier than girls.
The eighth book, 'Oxford University,' has Rick transitioning from being a tenth grade high school student to entering Oxford University as an underclassman.
Fame, adventure and even some danger keep coming his way as he moves to Oxford England to enter Trinity College at Oxford University. He is back and forth across the Atlantic as he takes his exams, and prepares for the US Open. Somehow his courtesy job as a Queens Messenger lands him in the Royal Air Force as a flight officer. How this ends up involving Miss Bardot and the Mona Lisa remains to be seen.
For the young, this is a coming of age adventure, for those who lived it a trip down memory lane, and for those with a search engine Easters Eggs galore.
This tongue in cheek saga is all true, give or take a lie or two.
