    Military Monday with USNI Press Authors Geoffrey Rossano and Thomas Wildenberg

    in History

    Popular history tells us that US Naval aviation developed from early experiments with flight decks on ships, into the vast carrier fleets of World War II. But in fact, the first U.S. Navy/Marine Corps combat aviation operations involve something for different from the great aircraft carrier operations of the mid-20th century. Rather than supporting the fleet, during World War I naval aviation was focused on a single basic target set: German U-boat and their supporting infrastructure. Just after the American entry into the Great War, early naval aviation options focused on dealing with the threat of German U-boats, which were strangling communications between the New World and Europe. And when it was discovered that early aircraft were ineffective against submarines at sea, U.S. Navy efforts turned to attacking their home ports in Belgium.

    To learn more about the development and history of US naval aviation andstrategic bombing, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited respected U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) authors Thomas Wildenberg and Geoffrey Rossano to discuss his new book, STRIKING THE HORNETS' NEST. STRIKING THE HORNETS' NEST is a detailed examination and history of early US Naval aviation combat operations, and America's first real efforts towards a strategic bombing force and campaign. Look forward to learning something new during what is going to be a fascinating hour on Military Monday.

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes thriller and mystery novelist Sean T. Smith.  https://seantsmithauthor.wordpress.com/

    Sean started writing fiction after moving back to Florida, and now relishes the broader canvas a novel affords, though he''s still known to pick up his guitar from time to time. He considers being a dad the best thing about him, for his children make him a better man. The love of his wife, who also happens to be his best friend and muse, inspires him to keep writing.

    Sean is almost finished with his fifth novel, and already working on number six. At the same time, he is writing for an international video game developer for THE SEED, to be released in 2016.

    Author Jacqueline Garlick brings steampunk to life on Authors on the Air LIVE

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes Jacqueline Garlick to the show.  Jackie and I chat about her steampunk novels, her YA series and her new book about speed writing plots.  This is going to be a fun and interesting program. Listen LIVE from any Wi-Fi enabled device at 9pm ET / 6pm PT in the link provided.  


    I'm Jacqueline Garlick, author of young adult and new adult fiction. I love strong heroines, despise whiny sidekicks, and adore a good story about a triumphant underdog. (Doesn't everyone?) I have an on-going love/hate relationship with chocolate, grammar, and technology? I prefer creating things to cleaning things, and I love cinnamon tea. There will always be tea. 

    I've been called the Quentin Tarantino of YA, because of my edgy, risk-taking, Tim Burton-esque style writing. I've also been called Little Erin, because of my passion for righteousness. In my former life I was a teacher, so you'll have to excuse that. To find out more about me, and other exciting writing adventures click: www.jacquelinegarlick.com, and be sure to sign up for my NEWSLETTER and get your free read while you're there!

    Don Bruns, author, musician, storyteller LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes multi-talented author Don Bruns.  Don Bruns is a novelist, advertising executive, musician, songwriter, cook and painter who has no idea what he wants to do when he grows up. He's the author of nine books and was editor of the mystery/music anthology A Merry Band Of Murderers. 

    Don's published novels cover two series. One, a Caribbean thriller collection and two, the Stuff series, a humorous look at two twenty-four year old guys in South Florida who start their own detective agency and end up neck - deep in trouble. Skip and James from the Stuff series have often been compared to grown up versions of the Hardy Boys.

    Jamaica Blue, Barbados Heat, South Beach Shakedown, St. Barts Breakdown and Bahama Burnout make up the Caribbean books. The Stuff series consists of Stuff To Die For, Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, Stuff To Spy For, and Don't Sweat The Small Stuff- which came out in December 2010. Bruns is currently working on the fifth Stuff book, Too Much Stuff. His two series have won numerous awards, and the latest "Stuff" series has won a starred review in Booklist. "Will remind the reader of Tim Dorsey's cast of whacked-out characters but with the narrative voice and feel of Mark Twain's Huck Finn."   Traveling the Caribbean for his Mick Sever series, or hovering around Miami for his "Stuff" series, Bruns enjoys the writing life. You can find him at http://www.donbrunsbooks.com
