1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a retired Air Force Colonel. I spent my 27 year career supervising people who fixed airplanes (Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor). I am now a proposal writer who writes proposals to help companies get business with the Government.  My proposals have helped companies win over $15 billion dollars worth of contract with international, U.S. federal, state, and local governments. When I am not writing my proposals, I am a part time fiction writer. I write and publish free short shorts on my blog located at http://www.HarryMiles-Adventures.blogspot.com   
2. Describe your book Harry's War in 30 words or less. 
People have described it an “edge-of-your-seat action adventure” featuring Harry Miles, Air Force F-15 fighter pilot who finds himself alone in the mother of all air battles facing off against eight (8) Iranian jets (planes are technologically superior to Harry's). There is intense air combat then the surprising aftermath! Will Harry survive the peace?
