About the Author

My father pinned the wings on my uniform that he wore as an Army Air Corps pilot in WWII. We stood at the same airfield near Valdosta, Georgia where he trained to become an 8th AF bomber pilot. Thirty years later, I would follow his footsteps as a pilot with the 2nd AF during the War in Southeast Asia. We were native Atlantans sent to the far reaches of the planet as young men during striff and global conflict. We weren't the first, my forefathers has served with the military in every conflict America faced since they sailed up the James River in Viginia in the mid 17th century.

My wife and I have lived on the East coast of Florida for the past 20 years. It is from my balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean that I found the inspiration to take my love of storytelling and put it to words. My work is fiction, and my current work is inspired from nights of telling fantasies to my grandchildren. For the adults, the Thomas MacLaine series is rooted in the life story of my father, and is told for my three daughters that he so loved during his lifetime.
