Sample content from my new novel, Game Piece

I had never cheated on my wife, but how was I going to prove it?

She rolled over and peppered me with more ques-tions about Sharon Turner. Specifically, about an affair. At first, I thought she was joking. I mean, me having an affair? The day that’d happen would be the same day the devil’d shiver in Hell. When I realized she was dead seri-ous, I denied it. Obviously, that wasn’t good enough. I foll Read more of this blog post »

We Are Soldiers Still by Harold G. Moore
“These times, indeed all times, demand national political leaders who know not only our history but the history of the world and its nations and peoples. We need leaders of principle, courage, character, wisdom, and discipline; and yet we seem trapped by a system of choosing our presidents that pushes those who possess those traits aside in favor of others who look good on television, are skilled at slandering and demonizing their opponents in a campaign, and are able to raise the hundreds of millions of dollars required to ensure election at any cost.”
