Cheers for the Red, White and Blue!

This Writers’ Wednesday cannot go by without sharing the awesome time I had with the U.S. Navy at Naval Support Activity Naples. It has been an illuminating, educational and truly enjoyable author appearance in Italy.

Naval Support Activity Naples


Book sales and signings aside, I was welcomed by the troops and civilian support staff as if I were an old friend. My visit happened to coincide with the awful bombing in Boston. Security was tight but once inside the gates, I felt at home, complete with food court, bowling alley and shopping mall.

Special thanks must be given to my new BFF, Lisa OC, for opening the door and to Ciro G for leading the way and serving as host extraordinaire, along with the tireless efforts of bookstore supervisor Francesca. She is such a great sales cheerleader that I may need to take her on the road. The Petty Officers and Airmen I met along the way just made my day with their enthusiasm and smiles, especially MC3 Williams and A1C Rowse for a great day back on the air at AFN Naples radio. I can’t wait to return…if you’ll have me!
