    Books and Cheerleaders

    I once did a book signing on an Army base at a table next to the Tennessee Titans cheerleaders.  I say I did a signing, but I really sat and watched the line for autographs with the cheerleaders.  They had a certain appeal that I lacked.  I never had a chance.

    Books and Castles

    image

    In Farah, Afghanistan, there is a fortress said to have been built by the forces of Alexander the Great when he entered the area about 330 AD.

    image

    It is so large that it is impossible to capture in one camera frame.

    image

    Anyone can climb all over it.  Its walls are very high, crumbling, and tricky in some parts.

    image

    image

     During my time in the war in Afghanistan, I climbed up on this arch, relieved that the ancient structure held up.

    image

    My experiences in Afghanistan, including my time in this incredible fortress have been a tremendous influence in two of my novels.
