Editorial Reviews

Review

"Football Flyboy is a story with earthiness and honesty we have largely forgotten today--an entertaining read and not a typical war story." ~ Bob P., former tinker, soldier, sailor, spy

"Bravo! I found myself laughing out loud at his unique humor and didn't want the story to end. Fly away with Football Flyboy!" ~ Andi Sue Phillips, United States Naval Aviator

"The organization of this memoir is endearing and nostalgic. As a war story, it is unconventional as it is told through a daughter's lens. The use of letters, poems, and photographs bring the anecdotes and memories to life."   ~ BookLife Prize
"The letters are raw in places, as Bill has no news from home, but also touching and funny.  It makes you think about the modern "instant" generation and how they would deal with being in Bill's shoes - overseas with no clue how loved ones were doing." ~Paul Emory, Author of "From the Mud" (WWI fiction) 

From the Author

As I began to unpack my mom's things after her death, I found hundreds of letters that she saved from Dad during the war. Surprisingly there were no letters to Dad from her among any of her things which made me wonder why. She had all the letters in chronological order so the very first letter was the day he left for overseas. As I progressed through the letters it became obvious why there were no letters from her, he never received any mail due to being constantly on the move flying around the world.
The more I read, the more the words sparked memories from my childhood and extended family. There was an overwhelming tugging that urged me to write the stories down. Writing those stories showed me that it is family dynamics that help build you into the person you become. Good or bad and we all have a little of each. There were 5 kids in the family and all turned out different despite a similar childhood. I was curious to see what I would uncover as I perused through personal encounters of his life.
This was a different journey for me since all of my other books are children's picture books. My mind works in simple concepts-doing a grown up books was a challenge and a thrill.
I can't help but think what our Flyboy would say seeing his picture on the cover, "Well ain't that something!"
