Pitching back into the fight!

I’m pitching back into the fight for 2019! I took a sabbatical from my site for the last few months, why? In that time three of my children were winged: David now wears my Uncle Bob’s USAF pilot wings flying the KC-135 Stratotanker.


Nostalgic for me, this is a picture from the cockpit of my F-4 Phantom tanking on a KC-135.

Kaitlyn is wearing US Army Aviator wings of a family friend and is a UH-60 Black Hawk pilot.


William (USMC) is wearing my Naval Aviator wings, which were first my Uncle Larry’s and is flying the V-22 Osprey.

I’ve been flying my Nanchang CJ-6A with all of them, even with my oldest son Leland, who wears a Combat Infantry Badge, earned in Iraq with the 10th Mountain Division.

He often reminds us, we are all just support. His new wife Ashley finishes the military set as a member of the USCG. It has been a busy time!

I also went through Captain upgrade training on the B-737 and finished my latest novel, Hemingway’s Suitcase. As the New Year unfolds I will finish the fifth in the Aviator Series, Cold War: Hot. I’m getting a fresh start in 2019 and looking at new publishers. Obviously, it has delayed Hemingway’s Suitcase, but I’m close to moving forward and it is edited awaiting publishing.

Hemingway’s Suitcase is a stand alone novel and a bit of a departure from the Aviator Series: Project 7 Alpha, Vengeance at Midway and Guadalcanal, ENDGAME in the Pacific and CODE NAME: Infamy. All of the Aviator Series is set in WWII. Hemingway’s Suitcase is a psychological thriller that follows Hemingway and a curse, through out his life. An amazing, action packed life! I’m working hard to get it out ASAP, more to follow on it.
