When I retired after 35 years of flying professionally, I spent the first few years playing with my young grandchildren. But as they grew older their Papa wasn’t as cool as he used to be. With less time with my grandchildren, I turned my attentions to helping my wife by making her kitchen more efficient. I relocated pots and pans and rearranged the cabinets. While she did appreciate the help washing dishes her appreciation did not extend to my rearranging efforts. My wife soon relegated me to the sink side of the kitchen with the threat bodily harm if I touch her cabinets.
After being banished from the kitchen, I turned to my computer which I had hardly used before and decided to try video gaming. The gaming idea went well. It was a 6 vs 6 battle bot game.
I then did something then I thought I would never do. I started writing short stories about the game including my combat experiences from my time in Vietnam as an Army helicopter pilot. The guys I played with loved them. After writing 49 short stories, I was encouraged to put them into book form. Trying to combine 49 short stories into one book was harder than learning to fly. I did finish it finally and self-published it. After that I was hooked. A year and five books later I am still writing.
