September 2017

My novella THE DEVIL DOGS OF BELLEAU WOOD, published by Down and Out Books, won the Silver Medal in Historical Fiction from the Military Writers Society of America. I'm particularly pleased about winning this award as all proceeds from the novella go directly to The Semper Fi Fund. I encourage everyone to support this worthy cause.
