The Book

Nieuport 17 .C1 GBR

I am currently writing a historical-fiction novel about aviators of the Royal Flying Corps in 1917.

Since my first short screenplay was blatantly plagiarized in 2002 I avoid sharing too much detail about my creative work in public spaces.

My primary focus—above all else—is to try and accurately convey the human experience of it all. I’ve always been fascinated by the personalities of such historical figures. Who were they? What set them apart from the others who kept their feet rooted firmly to the ground? How did they react when bullets punched through their wood-and-fabric aeroplane? Or when they found themselves in a terrifying dogfight through the clouds? How did those experiences change them? The list goes on and on, and I hope to shed some light on some of these topics.

I sincerely hope those who enjoy history (or simply learning about new subjects) will appreciate my efforts to include true incidents and real figures in my protagonist’s journey.

(And for my fellow aviation buffs— I hope you will be as thrilled as I to come across Nieuport, SE5a, Fokker, and Albatros….)

    It sounds fascinating. The subject and that time in world history interest me a lot. I look forward to reading this book written by someone with your background, and would love to be the first to buy it.
