I saw that we share an interest in boxing. I thought you might get a kick out of my book Virgin Gloves. It's unlike any boxing book you've ever read, I can guarantee it. It's viewable at Suburban
As a librarian at public library in Estes Park, Colorado, I enjoy collecting and cataloging books. My main passions are military fiction, navy novels and books on the Vietnam War. I served in the navy from 1969 to 1975 so I am interested in books from that time period. While in college at Iowa State University, I wrote short stories about my time serving aboard a destroyer off the coast of Vietnam. Later I collected those stories and wrote a novel entitled "Steve McQueen Would Be Proud," which I self-published in 2001.

I'm always on the look out for novels about the sea, especially about men serving on board warships during the Vietnam War. There are surprisingly few of them. Deutermann's "Edge of Honor" is one of the few I have found. I enjoy David Poyer's navy novels as well.

As a huge baseball fan, I also collect books on baseball. Recently I read a biography of Curt Flood, one of my heroes as I grew up in the midwest during the 1960's.
