About this title:

Synopsis: In the late 1960s, with the Cold War becoming frostier within the Soviet Bloc, Billy Wright's missions were increased as a measure to expedite more extractions of high value targets. With each subsequent job, Billy would become a well-seasoned spy. After he was discharged from the army, Billy was granted a commission of first lieutenant, which would escalate into promotions never seen before since General Custer. The successes of Cia/Asa agent Wright's covert assignments escalated these ceremonial promotions. Wright, who thought his army days were behind him, could never say no to another exciting challenge. He still possessed his boyish looks, quick wits, and farm boy instincts, which he needed for covertly masquerading as a student in both Western and Eastern Europe and for his survival. Intrigued by the prospect of serving his country as a spy, he accepted every mission no matter what the danger. Billy's instincts, or perhaps a guardian angel on his right shoulder, always kept him out of harm's way.

About the Author: I was born on a small Florida farm in central Florida on August 8, 1946, and I attended Riverview Elementary School and East Bay High in Hillsborough County. I left high school early to join the army in order to get away from the endless chores on the family farm. I received an honorable discharge from the army in West Germany in late March 1967 and stayed in Europe for another year mainly in the United Kingdom, working my way around the country. I met a young English schoolteacher from Harrow, a leafy suburb of West London and married Nikki on October 7, 1967. We returned to the Riverview or Brandon area in late March 1968. I started work with Delta Airlines at Tampa International after working two other jobs while waiting for Delta where I stayed until April 1981. That was when Nikki and I, with our two children, immigrated to England and finally Scotland, where we started a successful antique brokerage company. We returned to Florida to live in 2008 in a beautiful home on the golf course. Nikki passed away on February 21, 2011, after forty-four years of marriage. I started writing our life story to tell the world how wonderful and blessed our life had been. From that first book, Harrow Girls/Promises Kept, which was a labor of love, I started writing about our travels and our dogs. Realizing how much I enjoyed it, I started writing spy novels with my early days on the Czechoslovakia and East German borders while serving in the US Army as a backdrop. Later our lives took us to Eastern Europe after the Iron Curtain came down, where we traveled to buy antiques and explore the once cut off countries of the Soviet Bloc.
