"Fast Eddie" puts you in the cockpit, in air combat, and in romantic Paris
Readers obviously need more aviation adventure tales, so I launched three sorties into the rarified air of literature. War for the Hell of It (a #1 Amazon bestseller) is an account of my 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. The First Fighter Pilot-Roland Garros; The Life and Times of the Playboy Who Invented Air Combat (a #1 Amazon new book) is a creative biography of an aviation pioneer who invented the fighter plane and an account of life in the Gilded Age leading to WWI.
My qualification for such demanding writing missions? I flew several types of jet fighters logging the same number of landings as take-offs. During the Vietnam War, I flew 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.
