Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Pat McGrath Avery is the author of several books about veterans including Sunchon Tunnel Massacre Survivors. She is the editor of the Branson Veterans Task Force newspaper, the Bugle. She is currently the secretary of the Military Writers Society of America. She attended two reunions of the Sharon Rogers Band members, conducted multiple interviews, and tells the story through the letters and words of those who lived it.

More About the Author

Pat loves writing, nature, dogs, photography & travel. She lives in south Texas and enjoys visiting schools, libraries, writing groups and book clubs.

Her newest title, Consequence, takes readers into the world of human smuggling and explores the consequences of greed.

Her nonfiction books focus on telling people's stories. Her latest title, Emergence: The John Bax Story, recounts the life of internationally known nature cinematographer, John Bax. Other biographies include The Sharon Rogers Band: Laughed Together, Cried Together, Crashed & Almost Died Together, and They Came Home: Korean War POWs Tell Their Stories. She is the co-author of Sunchon Tunnel Massacre Survivors and Role Call: Women's Voices.

Pat's bichon buddy, Luke the Detective Dog, researched history in Famous Dogs: Changing History One Dog (& Cat) at a Time. He interviews his fellow canines in his Dogs Speak Out series and helps solve crimes wherever her imagination takes them. Her mystery series features Hap Lynch and is set in different locations: Murder Takes a Ride in Branson, MO, and Murder is for the Birds in the South Padre Island area. Her new cozy mystery, Murder Takes No Prisoners, takes place in Jefferson City, Missouri. She is currently working on a co-written mystery that once again takes place in South Padre Island.

Pat has lived in Colorado Springs, CO, Kansas City, MO, and Branson, MO, before moving to the South Padre Island area. She loved them all and gets homesick for each location's natural beauty.

Format: Hardcover
I can't say enough wonderful things about this book. This book is a fun and fast read and I loved it. In addition, I had the pleasure of meeting the author and some of the band members in Branson Missouri. Pat Avery the author and members of the Sharon Rogers Band were doing a book signing, answering questions about being in the USO, being overseas and surviving as plain crash, during WWII.

The Brave pilot shared his story on how they nearly missed crashing into mountain tops and not hitting any mines in the sea when they ditched their plane in icy cold water in the winter. I was privileged to hear a sample of the music they played during the war. This was a wonderful experience especially as we remember our veterans on this Veterans Day. This is the story we rarely here about, the story of those who support our veterans.
