An interesting week

Wednesday night I sat at a bar in a local veterans club and listened to a WWII vet tell stories about his time as a top turret gunner in a B-17.  He and his twin brother served in the same bomber squadron in Europe beginning in 1944. I looked at some of his pictures, listened with amazement as he spoke of his reaction to seeing enemy tracers sail by his head as he flew on 36 missions into Germany.  His brother was shot down and finished the war as a POW. If I am fortunate I will spend some time with him one-on-one and get more details.

Naval Institute Press to publish "The Recipient's Son."


I am pleased to announce that the Naval Institute Press will publish my second novel, The Recipeint's Son! Set at the U.S. Naval Academy in the early 1990's, The Recipient's Son follows the son of a Medal of Honor Recipient as he tries to live up to his heritage while negotiating the trials of life in Annapolis. Watch for it - September 2012.
