The Story Moves On

B-52I’m 8000 words into On the Wings of Grace, and our protagonist, wounded warrior and war hero Otto Kerchner, has been asked to improve crew morale and comfort aboard SAC’s B-52’s. He and his sister Mata fly with a crew on a routine mission, and Otto takes a turn at the controls, thinking how different the experience is from his wartime missions in a B-17.

The story is proceeding well, and I hope to have it finished by early March. I’ll keep you apprised of my progress. In the meantime, if you haven’t had a chance to read the first book in the series (to number nine eventually), I hope you’ll visit or (my esteemed publisher) and get a copy of On Wings of the Morning. I think you’ll enjoy reading about Otto’s boyhood and his wartime service, and his sister Mata, who takes over the family dairy farm when he goes off to war. Enjoy!


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.
