About the Author

Bill Fortin served in the United States Army, 3rd Armor Division, from April 1968 to the first part of 1970. In 2012 while transporting Redhawk, a Quarter horse, to a medical facility in Pennsylvania I had a flashback to 1970. The cause was the turnpike signage that pointed to the VA Hospital at Perryville. I knew at that moment that the exploits of Cold Warriors of 40 plus years passed had waited long enough to be told. The result was a novel entitled Redeye Fulda Cold.

I had retired from Bell Labs in 2001, I'm currently the CEO of IBS, Inc., specializing in systems engineering. I have a Master's in the Management Sciences from the University of Baltimore. My wife Judy, a gaggle of Border Collies, and other 4 legged and featured companions reside in the rolling hills of Westminster, Maryland.

A guys book. Written by guy. But sometimes girls like 'em too. Stinger Operation Cyclone was a page turner from page 1. I was swept in and ended up on a fast paced ride to the end. Bill Fontin knows how to weave a story with the details, descriptions of people and places to intrigue the reader and keep you engaged. Fontin writes expertly about the Middle East and military topics in a way that your drawn in and unable to put the book down. I enjoyed Stinger Operation Cyclone much more than I expected to. A cast of characters from each location of the story is provided at the end that helps keep the reader involved in this fast paced story. I look forward to reading more in the series.
