“Just the facts, ma’am…” Los Angeles police detective Sergeant Joe Friday (actor Jack Webb) directed the witnesses he interviewed in the 50s/60s TV show Dragnet. They so often spun off into the realm of creative nonfiction, and he and his partner had no time for that. But those with compelling true stories should write their story in just that way and bring it to life for the reader.
We’re honored and excited to get this news! FORTUNE FAVORS BOLDNESS has been selected for the USN Chief of Naval Operations Professional Reading List. This is our second title to make a service chief’s professional reading list. WHAT NOW, LIEUTENANT? by General Richard ‘Butch’ Neal (Ret.), is on the USMC Commandant’s list.
This project has aspects of a ‘true account—business—crime’ story.
