From a very early age I have written everything from songs to poetry. Having several short stories published in the past, I have never undertaken a task of this magnitude. I was encourage first by my history teacher in high school on a paper I had to submit about the Hindenburg. I wrote the article through the eyes of a mouse who happened to climb aboard the ill-fated blimp. I was further influenced by my English professor in college. During my twenty plus years in the Marine Corps I continued to write for my own entertainment. Now retired and considered disable I thought I would share a few adventures with those who will be entertained by my writings. Those who will share the laughs I have gotten from some of the characters. Some of the sorrows I felt for the in my books. I continue to write in hopes that some will find my works enjoyable and entertaining but feel deep in my heart that if I can bring pleasure to just one person who reads my stories. Then the time and effort are well worth the hours put into them.
