Bobby Everett Smith

Bobby Everett Smith is an American author of fiction and non-fiction essays, short stories and novels, and the publisher of the blog

Born and raised in Wichita Falls, Texas, Smith earned a degree in Economics from Rice University and an MBA from the University of Washington. Primarily during the Cold War, he served as an aviator in the U.S. Navy. His tours in East and Southeast Asia are inspiration for many of his works, taking the reader vicariously along for his adventurous rides, launched from aircraft carriers in the 7th Fleet.

Fueled by his own leadership experiences in the U.S. Navy and the private sector, Smith has become passionate and knowledgeable about our nation’s leaders. In nearly a dozen summaries of great presidential biographies, he examines the lives, achievements and legacies of these important political figures.

Smith’s most recent novel, Lida Murry Smith, was inspired by his own family history. Set in the backdrop of the women’s suffrage movement, it traces the arduous and courageous 1905 fictional journey of the Smith family from their farm in Missouri, through the Indian Territories and Oklahoma to a new farm in Texas.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
To see my books, I browse on Smashwords,

To see books from other authors I use Kindle and to find specific books and authors I am looking for. I like to spend a part of every day reading both fiction and non-fiction.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a short story about my summer at the University of Colorado in 1954. I had to go there to make up a couple of courses that I failed at Rice in order to graduate with my class and get my commission in the Navy. Colorado U has a lot of pretty girls from Texas, Louisiana, and Colorado which made for a fun summer, the best summer I ever had. You will like reading this story and a couple of others in Flying Under the Radar. Check it out at this link:

Night Attack-How We Won the Cold War
”Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” This story describes the challenges I faced in college, flight school and fleet training to become a naval aviator flying attack missions off an aircraft carrier in the Western Pacific. No training is complete without young love, first sex, and developing a life-time relationship with my current and only wife. “Hours and hours of sheer boredom, interrupted by moments of stark terror.” You will be spellbound as you complete all the stories in the series: “The Man in White,” “Navy Wings” “WestPac,” and "Blue February".
