There really is an art to being poor.

It’s funny that for most of my life I had no idea that I was poor or lived in poverty. True, I was raised poor, married poor, had a slew a kids and so stayed poor. I budgeted every nickel. Now here’s the thing. My parents came from good families. Working stock. My grandfathers owned their own businesses. All had been through the Depression. Money was tight. Next along came World War II and my uncles and dad went into the military.  We had coupons for every shortage–shoes, fabric, sugar, butter, gas. I had my first stick of gum after the War. Juicy Fruit. One pair of buckled sandals got us through summers, otherwise we went barefoot. A six ounce Coca Cola was 6 cents and a treat.

THE RELUCTANT HERO 99¢ June 28 – July 1

The Reluctant Hero

Parnell Stillman ~ Pilot

Let me introduce you to Parnell Stillman, ace pilot and man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He has a quirky sense of independence, a poor man’s sense of budget and a manner of dress that would drive a mother crazy. You know that kind of man I mean. Every motorized machine he owns is pristine, but his socks don’t match. 

Five Stars! If you…are a Humphrey Bogart/African Queen fan or an Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark fan, you will love this book.  ~  A. Burroughs on Amazon.

Editors Are Not Fairy Godmothers

There are three wonderful innovations from the last century that made my life easier. Liquid Paper (1951), Velcro (1955) and fitted sheets (1959).  However, three other innovations from the last century have often made my writing life utter misery: WordStar and Word Perfect were turned loosed on the public in 1979. Microsoft Word came along in 1986. I did not find WordStar or Word Perfect user friendly. I had no acquaintance with Microsoft Word until I was in college in 2002.
