About the Author

He's the world's oldest teenager. Reading, writing, rock & roll and an awesome wife make for the perfect life. The occasional beach doesn't hurt, either. Bill grew up in West Tennessee, riding his bike on narrow rural roads lined with wild blackberry bushes, in the days before urban sprawl. He spent those long rides dreaming of new worlds of adventure. Childhood for him was one interesting activity after another, from front yard football to naval miniatures, but from the very beginning reading was the central pillar of his life. Any and all military history books fascinated him, beginning before age 8. By his teenage years he had discovered J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert E. Howard, Robert Heinlein and Fritz Leiber. College found him searching for his identity, first majoring in forestry but discovering Creative Writing and knowing he had found his life's work. In 1987, his first novel earned him a well known agent, a personal note of encouragement from the late, great Judy Lynn del Rey, but not a contract. He turned to writing history and non-fiction and was published a number of times, including in World War Two magazine. In September of 2014 he wrote the first pages of what would become Standing The Final Watch and its direct sequel, Standing In The Storm (coming late 2016). Without him knowing it, a funny thing had happened in the previous 30 years; he had become a very good novelist. His sincerest hope is that you enjoy his works and share them with your friends
