HEMINGWAY’S SUITCASE

Hemingway’s Suitcase, my next novel, is going to the Editor! I’ve always been a big fan of Ernest Hemingway and his writing. He went through life in zone-5 after-burner. His life story reads like an adventure novel: warrior, spy, adventurer, big game hunter, deep sea fisherman and trans-formative writer. He lived life on the edge, and despite his tragic end, he had a lot of fun on the way.

A few months ago, I was searching the intra-weebs, I should have been working on book #5, of my Aviator Series, but was screwing-off. I was reading about Hemingway for a little motivation and happened across an article about his early work being stolen. His first wife placed all his manuscripts, and the carbon copies, in a suitcase to bring to him in Switzerland. they were to be reviewed for publishing. The suitcase and all the manuscripts, were stolen from the train.

Its been almost 100 years, and it is still lost. The seed was planted and the next thing I knew, I had a completed rough for a novel. In the novel is a curse, it follows Hemingway and his Suitcase through time. And what a time it was!

Hemingway’s Suitcase is a cross-genre’ work; Historical Fiction, with a trip into Horror Fiction. In it, I share Hemingway’s incredible life, flaws and all, as well as invite readers to his work. A Hemingway enthusiast might recognize the chapter titles;)

So, it is off to the Editor! But don’t worry I haven’t forgotten about the Aviator Series. COLD WAR HOT is heating up! I will be releasing it at the end of the summer. I really like it thus far, I think you will too. It follows: American Airlines Secret War in China- Project Seven Alpha, Vengeance at Midway and Guadalcanal, ENDGAME in the Pacific and CODE NAME- Infamy. You will catch up with Kid, Irish, Spike and some new characters as well.
