Uh oh. Don’t look now, readers, but somewhere around 42,000 words, On Eagle Wings Upbornebecame the second book in a tetraology. I had been touting it as the second book in a trilogy, but with the book a little over half way done, I’ve only covered four years in the lives of Otto and his family. The first book spanned nineteen years. I wanted to cover about the same amount of time in the second book, but I’ll be lucky to reach 1958 at this rate. Too much keeps happening and I lived during these years, so I know more about what happened during them. Except college was a blur. Just kidding, friends. I spent four years reading. Being an English major will do that to you. It’ll also make you want to write, so here I am, writing. I hope you enjoy my efforts and I hope you enjoy the books once they come out. I should hear from a good bet for a publisher by the end of the month, so hang on! Better days are a-coming!


About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
