Titled 'The Pilot'......In this action/adventure/love story, The unnamed Pilot loves fighter planes, a beautiful woman, and Paris. He is to fly the new F-35, but fears its electronics will erode his warrior's ethos. Complicating his future is a mysterious French woman who might be a spy, or maybe someone much closer to him. The Pilot has mastered many fighters, from the unstable Sopwith Camel to the stiletto F-104 Starfighter, but this challenge is different. He can't shoot down the future, but his storied past is the key to his future. The Pilot flies classic combat missions, from the leaden skies of WWI to the sun-blasted Iraqi desert, while re-living past love affairs. Searching for answers, he taps the thoughts of thinkers such as Hemingway, Bobbie Burns, Churchill, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Robert the Bruce, von Richthoven, and Yogi Berra. Fast-paced in the City of Light, The Pilot delivers a melange of air combat, libido, memories, and aviation history. Movie-wise, think Midnight in Paris meets Top Gun. For readers who rarely read novels and for those who do, this novel puts you in the cockpit and the bedroom, immerses you in Parisian ambiance, and answers the question, "Who is the Pilot?"
