About Willard White

I've been a service station attendant, steel building erector, combat helicopter pilot (1,200 hours in Viet Nam) instructor pilot in airplanes and helicopters, ambulance helicopter pilot, and most recently a corporate pilot with approximately 200 North Atlantic crossings.

I started writing 12 years ago while at my job. Well, I didn't write books in the cockpit, but while traveling to my airplane on the airlines and while sitting in hotel rooms on standby.

You might find my job description interesting; I worked seven days on and seven days off. Day one normally was devoted to traveling on the airlines to my airplane and meeting my crew (First Officer and Flight Attendant). We would fly our airplane anywhere in the world for five days, and on day seven would leave our Gulfstream where-ever it happened to be and airline to our homes for our seven days off. It was the best job in the world, and I had plenty of forced isolation time to write.

Set in 4/1861, Savannah, Georgia a personal diary or journal about romance or love or friendship (Julia Branch). Chester Baker liked her also.
Fast forward 12/13/1864, Coffee Bluff, Georgia. A Lieutenant Homer Delessops (spy) in the Civil War might get his leg amputated.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written fictitious historical Civil War short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great set of characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)

This was really interesting. The first thing I always notice about books is whether or not the grammar and vocabulary are as they should be--professional. This writer is not only quite intelligent, but gifted in providing details to set a scene. The imagery he used to describe the bar setting was awesome!

I also was riveted by the exchange of the two main characters, as it was an intense situation that projected fear and urgency.

To Mr. Willard White: Is this story an excerpt of a larger book? I would love to read it if so!!! Thanks.
