What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I experience two joys, one with fiction and one with non-fiction writing.
When I write fiction, I really enjoy seeing what happens. Watching how the characters morph the story as they add their own say, that is often surprising and very cool.
With non-fiction, I most enjoy sharing knowledge. Much of my non-fiction is designed to help people solve problems, and if even one person is able to read my writing and resolve an issue, then that's why I do it. That is very, VERY cool.
What are you working on next?
Next I will be working on publishing a book for veterans, aimed at helping them get into, pay for, and graduate from college.

With It or in It tells a captivating and unique story of the 1991 Persian Gulf War as seen from the loader's hatch of an M1A1 tank.
