Research beginning on Book No. 2

Hello all! I'm proud to say that "World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware" has been very well received thus far, so much so that I have begun working on the second installment of the series a little earlier than expected.

"World War II Heroes of Coastal Delaware" will feature another 50 veterans, this time from the beach communities of southern Delaware. Scheduled for a late fall 2010 release - don't hold me to that at this moment - it will be the second in a planned three-part series on World War II veterans from the First State.

If anyone knows of any WWII veterans from these areas, please shoot me an email at

Stay tuned to this blog or to for more information!

Happy Veteran's Day 2009!

After two years, the day is finally here - today, "World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware" will be officially released during a four-hour signing event at Morning Star Publications in Seaford. And what better day than on Veteran's Day?

For those of you in the local area, take time this morning to say "thank you" to all the brave men and women who serve our country with pride each and every day. And don't forget our veterans, who have helped preserve the freedom we all enjoy here in the United States.

But after this morning's ceremonies, stop by the Star offices in the Home Team Realty building on Norman Eskridge Highway to say hello and check out my new book. I'd love to talk with you about the war and about this important project. I hope to see you there!

For everyone else, check out my Web site at You can learn a little more about the book, and about me as well. And be sure to check out the book trailer!

Again, Happy Veteran's Day everyone! I hope to see you all at the Star this afternoon from 12-4. God bless!

Finally off to the printer!

After nearly two years and lots of editing, tweaking and other obsessive compulsive-type revisions, "World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware" finally began its initial press run this morning. Copies should be in my trembling little hands well before the book's official release date on Nov. 11.

Stayed tuned for more updates as they become availalable and be sure to follow me as I embark on a six-week virtual book tour beginning Monday, Nov. 2.

And don't forget - if you run across a man or woman serving in our nation's military, be sure to give them a big, heartfealt "Thank You!"
