LATEST RELEASE

The UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY A–Z
is all about the United States Naval Academy as a college, service academy, and the United States Navy. It is an “up close” look at life on the Yard with many exciting aspects of “Four years together by the Bay”. It was written for many: young people who might wish to attend, visitors to Annapolis, Navy families, and of course graduates!

 

Framed by the letters of the alphabet, significant items, ideas, and locations related to life on the Yard are presented in short rhyming text (for little ones), and illustrated in full-color photos or a line drawing to color.

AN AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR, and ARTIST
I published textbooks on environmental design and field guide paintings of fish and reptiles while teaching college in Kentucky. My recent publication, FLYING OVER DELMARVA: Spray Planes, Banner Planes & Bi-Planes, was my first hardbound book for aviation enthusiasts, young and old. This is my first activity book for young readers, who may one day become aviation enthusiasts, or at least better readers. 

"When you dig just a little under the surface, a whole new world emerges."
