"Fast Eddie" puts you in the cockpit, in air combat, and in romantic Paris 

   Readers obviously need more aviation adventure tales, so I launched five sorties into the rarified air of literature.

War for the Hell of It : A Fighter Pilots View of Vietnam

(a #1 Amazon bestseller) is an account of my futile attempts to win the Vietnam War.

The Pilot: Fighter Planes and Paris is a literary aviation novel featuring air combat from WWI to Desert Storm plus a love affair spanning the skies of time set in romantic Paris.

The First Fighter Pilot-Roland Garros: The Life and Times of the Playboy Who Invented Air Combat

(a #1 Amazon new WWI book) is a creative biography of an aviation pioneer who invented the fighter plane and an account of life in the Gilded Age leading up to WWI.

Fly with the Falcon: Love, Loss, Liberty is a novel about sexual harassment in the USAF (I’m against it) and peregrine falcons (I’m for them). How do these two dissimilar themes co-exist in one book. There is one way to find out. 

And I Lived to Tell the Tales; The Life of a Fighter Pilot completes my memoir mission. The book is a compilation of flying stories depicting a fighter pilot's life in peacetime. The tales are mostly true. The book is an Amazon #1 bestseller.

My qualifications for such demanding writing missions? I flew several types of jet fighters logging the same number of landings as take-offs. I fought 375 combat missions. After peace broke out, I instructed fighter pilots from a dozen allied nations. When not flying, I was imbedded in the intelligence world developing a unique set of skills which I applied to my books. Perhaps more importantly, I am not unmoved by a pretty face.

In my books, I depict a fighter pilot’s life on the ground and in the air, their aircraft, their lovers, and their times.
