About the Book

Every morning the coffee shops in the towns and cities of America come alive.  Aging men and women shuffle in and sit down to visit with their friends.  They discuss politics, sports, health, and their families. The subjects of war, sacrifice or heroism seldom come up.  If so it’s usually a brief reference to a long-ago military experience.

A passer-by would be amazed to discover that he was in the presence of and women who fought the wars that now guarantee his right to drop into a coffee shop or do anything else he wishes.

The Boot Hill Coffee Club, mostly military veterans, meets daily in Dodge City, Kansas.  They are only a few of the thousands of unsung heroes who gather daily in coffee shops all over America. The term “Boot Hill Coffee Club,” as used here, is symbolic of all coffee clubs where veterans gather every day.  You may belong to a “Boot Hill Coffee Club” in your town.  If you do, this book is dedicated to you.

These are their stories.

About the Author

After college and the army, the author pursued a career in financial planning before submitting to a long-suppressed desire to write.  His first work, a trilogy, revealed an unusual talent for weaving a story of intrigue and adventure that featured close-knit, mind-bending plots and a never-to-be-forgotten cast of characters.  Black Hand Over Kansas, The Journada del Muerto, and The Victors never ceases to thrill new readers.

Now comes another work of love:  Gleaned from personal interviews, THE BOOTHILL COFFEE CLUB is a personal wartime journey into the hearts and minds of the "guys next door" who paid terrible prices to keep America free.
