And now, change of topic. If you enjoyed the Hamfist novels, I’d like to ask two favors:

1) Post a review on the Amazon page for the book.

I want to thank all of you who posted reviews and wrote in with comments and suggestions.

I hope you enjoy reading Hamfist Down! as much as I enjoyed writing it. And standby for the next sequel, Hamfist Over Hanoi.

The Adventure Begins

Cover art by Tony Stencel

It’s 1968. Hamilton Hancock is on the fast track to become a fighter pilot. He is slated to fly an F-100, F-105 or F-4 in Vietnam. Then, the “needs of the service” intervenes, and he is assigned to fly one of the smallest, slowest aircraft in the Air Force inventory, the O-2A.

Hamilton becomes a Forward Air Controller (FAC) in Vietnam, and picks up the nickname “Hamfist”.

While Hamfist flies in air combat over the Ho Chi Minh Trail and battles an enemy gunner with a deadly record, on the ground he must also battle his inner fears and personal demons.

Inspired by actual events.

Hamfist Over The Trail  is now available as a Kindle download.
