Veteran interviews

Interviews with Vietnam Veterans for my latest work - In Their Words, Vietnam - are coming along very well. I find myself drawn into their world as they relive their much so that time flies by. I am honored that they are willing to share their lives so openly with me, and through me, with you.

Each time I leave an interview I feel I have left a friend, a lifelong friend.

New book in the works...

I feel I have found my niche. As those of you who know me will atest, I am an avid Veteran advocate and supporter. This and my love of the written word has lead me to yet another non-fiction work.

"In Their Words" Vietnam.

This book will be a collection of Vietnam Veterans stories, their thoughts, their emotions, their their words.

Working with a PTSD psychologist to form an interview outline and an informed consent I have begun in earnest the interview process. I am careful to honor their words and their memories.

As with the last book, I am adding historical content to help place the reader at that place and time in history.

This will be a page turner folks. A real history lesson, one we should never forget.

I will keep you posted as to my progress.

First Speaking engagement, quickly followed by more...

The Calaveras County Taxpayers Association has asked me to make a small presentation at their monthly luncheon this upcoming week...I said yes.
I am nervous and excited. The up side?   I will know a few people in the crowd....the down side...I really am not good at public speakin. I write well...I DO NOT speak well.
We shall see:)

This will be a good experience for me as I have also been asked to be guest speaker in Sonora in February. All this will lead up nicely to my book signing in Sacramento February 18 at the California State Military History Museum. (Featured February author.)

Thank you all for your support:)
