Recently, after twenty-seven years since I wrote the first draft, I published my novel on Kindle. It is A Dream of Heaven, written under my pen name, Michael FitzGordon. I hope that people will read it and enjoy it. Bob Kerrey read an earlier draft and wrote that it was “a compelling portrait of the destructive force of hatred, the ravaged psyches of those who have experienced war, and the enduring power of faith and love.” I hope that people will gain a greater understanding of how one can develop PTSD. The main characters are both American and Vietnamese, and I hope that readers will see war from both sides, see the folly of war, and work harder to avoid war.

People Making a Difference
Too many times there are people who do great things (big or small), but never get recognized. Sometimes its because people don't give proper credit to where credit is due and so other people's ideas, accomplishments, or other acts of "Greatness" never become known.
I admire those who do things without any thought except to do the right thing and to help someone in need. However, I feel it's important to acknowledge "Greatness" when we see it.
