Welcome to my new blog, which will be about my novel, On the Wings of Morning. Otto Kerchner is a young boy growing up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin in the 1930’s. He doesn’t like living on a farm: he wants more than anything to fly like his hero Charles Lindbergh.
Otto realizes his dream of becoming a pilot at an early age and then World War II begins, and he ends up as a B-17 pilot based in England flying missions against targets on the Continent.
I’ll keep you posted on the progress of the novel, which is presently being read by some pre-publication readers. I hope to have it published by April or May. In the meantime, I’ll use this blog to write about how the novel came to be written, the changes I made as I went along, and plans for sequels. I hope you’ll enjoy these insights into the “back story,” and that you’ll read On the Wings of Morning when it comes out!
