The Common Ground Fair on Sept 21st was my first opportunity to meet readers who were both veterans of the Navy and the Merchant Marine who were very interested in this story about modern pirates. I also happened to meet a submarine veteran who I served with in a deployment to the Indian Ocean…he was underwater patrolling for Russian subs when I was on the surface in the carrier USS Midway over 30 years ago…how small can the world be.
For the Book Launch at the Rockland Library two weeks ago we had a full room of guests who asked a lot of interesting questions about the book and my Navy career in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War. A good interaction experience and my book is in two local libraries, Rockland and South Thomaston. Great feeling.
