The author, Jay Schofield, is a former teacher and Hall of Fame basketball coach at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School in Massachusetts. Long aspiring to be an author, he has written over two dozen books since the 1990s including one on metal detecting, "Beach Detecting in Surf and Sand" and one on coaching, "How to Coach Basketball's 2-2-1 Penetration Offense" Although his speciality is private memoirs, Jay's most recent book, Our Final Salute, has a focus on WW II and family letters from the front. The author relies on first-hand stories and letters for his books and is forever fearful of the "delete" button which has the potential of erasing so much of today's personal history in emails. Oral history, since the days of living in caves and eating around campfires, has played a big role in all history. It's how many of us make sense of the world. Jay hopes his books on oral history enhance that concept. Feel free to contact Jay at: Website: memoirs-matter.com E-mail: email@example.com
