Information on the real life heroes of both Operation Harling and Operation Gunnerside is at time very sparse, these were men who would say they were simply doing their job and many did not seek the historical notoriety their actions earned them. Regardless of how sparse information may be on these heroes the world owes the brave men and women who served during World War II our eternal gratitude.

I have been dividing my creative time between two projects. One of course is Dream Factory – The Nightmare Affair; which I am happy to report is nearing the completion of its first draft. The second is a picture book about Monsters, its working title is “What I don’t know about Monsters” and is being composed and illustrated completely on my iPad. This is an exercise in both creativity and proving that these little wunderkind of the tech world can be used for creative purposes.
Using Pages on the iPad for text and layout is pretty easy, once you get the hang of it. The illustrations are the item I am most proud of. While I admit I am not the greatest artist, and the book might would be better served by an actual professional I really wanted to give it a go. After the break are three sample pages from the book for your enjoyment.

Garrand Foster was a man who looked beat by the system. He was nearly sixty years old, and enjoyed a full head of hair; although most days now he spent his time pulling it out in thick clumps out of frustration. He had been the warden at Saint Ive’s Island Maximum security prison for over twenty years, and had enjoyed a very quiet existence within the United Stated Penal Code enforcement agency for his entire tenure. This was a very good thing for a man twenty –pounds overweight and prone to heart disease. Being transported from the dock to the gates of the prison by one of his guards the Warden dreaded going into his office, just as he had for the past six months. Continue reading “Prison Break”
