Air Force Commander Pens Thriller

I have a new series going at my New Book Review blog. Well, sort of a series. I wanted to pass forward the joy of being honored by the Military Writers Society of America for my chapbook of poetry Tracings. The 2009 batch of award winners are up and Colonel Michael “Mike” Angley is one of them.

Mike's award-winning book is the Child Finder Trilogy. He retired from the Air Force in 2007 following a 25-year career as a Special Agent with the Office of Special Investigations (OSI). He held 13 different assignments throughout the world, among which were five tours as a Commander of various units, to include two Air Force Squadrons and a Wing. He is a seasoned criminal investigator and a counterintelligence and counterterrorism specialist. His debut novel, Child Finder, received the Silver Medal for Fiction in the 2009 Military Writers Society of America’s Annual Awards program. Child Finder features a USAF Special Agent protagonist, and it gets its inspiration from Angley’s long, multifaceted career.

So, won't you go by and read the review of his book at Leave him a comment. I know he'd love to feel the love.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson wrote the foreword for Eric Dinyer's book of patriotic quotations, Support Our Troops, published by Andrews McMeel. Part of the proceeds for the book benefit Fisher House. Her chapbook of poetry won the Military Writers Society of America's award of excellence. Find it at
