coverPalk

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short-Cuts” by Jennifer Palk.

A former Air Force member shares recipes she honed while on the job and as a single mom in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The recipes provide short cuts to home-style cooking, something working parents may have to do without because they don’t have enough time.

Imagine eating a home-cooked meal that takes a fraction of the time it normally would take to prepare. That’s the inspiration behind this new cookbook, created by a former Air Force member – known by most as Sgt. Potter – who treated not only her young sons but fellow flyers to homemade baked goods and meals. This single mom put their feedback to good use, learning short-cuts that allowed her to create delicious, nutritious meals and desserts while still having time to spend with her boys.

In “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short Cuts,” Jennifer Palk (formerly Sgt. Potter) shares knowledge she’s gained thanks to her time in the Air Force and years of baking with her family as a young girl. From Andrew’s Chocolate Mint Cookies and Apple Butter to Zack’s Apple Jack Cookies and Zucchini Bread, this family friendly cookbook arranged in alphabetical order offers something for everyone. Entrees include such offerings as Calzones, Dad’s BBQ Ribs, Easy Parmesan Chicken and Roberts Chili. Diabetic-friendly recipes include Apple Pie Cake, Banana Pudding, Carrot Snack Cake and Sherry’s Peach Cobbler. Even pets will find something to like with recipes for homemade dog biscuits and holiday dog treats.

Author Jennifer Palk served in the U.S. Air Force for 17 years, most of it as a single mother with young boys. She and her family live in Baxter, Tenn. She began compiling the material for the book when friends asked for her recipes.

New Historical Novel by David Huntley Captivating Tale of Post WWII Espionage

coverHuntley

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Death Watch Beetle” by David E. Huntley.

This new book released by Dog Ear Publishing is a thriller set during the Cold War, featuring a young man who finds himself deep in trouble when he accidentally finds a secret message hidden in a hymnal.  Donald Harvey travels internationally as he seeks to determine the meaning behind an encryption that could put his life and the lives of those he knows and loves in danger. 

Donald Harvey is happily occupied as an employee at Trandect Engineering Ltd. in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. Donald, the star of this new novel, entertains himself with his sweetheart, a young Polish immigrant named Alijca, and he skirts the edges of danger with a lucrative black market business. His idyll, however, comes to a sharp halt when Donald unwittingly involves himself in international espionage. Some misplaced apple juice uncovers invisible ink on a stray piece of paper in a hymnal, and Donald quite naturally becomes curious. The strange series of letters is clearly a code, and Donald takes it to a cryptographer friend.

The cryptographer, Roger, is intrigued, and takes it to his contacts at MI6. The agency and their American counterparts in the Air Force brief Donald, and they bring him into their plans to apprehend a Nazi war criminal responsible for the death of thousands, as well as heading up Hitler’s super weapons projects.

 Can Donald uphold his end of the task and bring the notorious criminal to justice? Can he maintain his life as he does it, including his burgeoning romance with the beautiful Alijca, who has her own history of suffering at the hands of Russian and Nazi occupation forces?

“Death Watch Beetle” is an engaging story, creating an authentic narrative. Filled with action, adventure and romance, author David Huntley’s novel becomes an intriguing puzzle for amateur cryptographers and fiction fans alike. Huntley, a survivor of the London Blitz in WWII, now a semi-retired international businessman, lives in Texas with his French wife, Sophie, herself a survivor of Nazi occupation. Huntley has tremendous respect and admiration for the soldiers and sailors of the U.S. and Allied Armed Forces who “helped save Europe from tyranny,”  and has dedicated this book to WWII veterans. Many of their names & service are recorded for posterity in the books’ final pages.

Former Air Force Pilot Brings Laos Missions to Life; Richard Diller Releases New Book

coverDiller

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Firefly: A Skyraider’s Story About America’s Secret War Over Laos” by Richard Diller.

Not much is known about the Skyraiders who served in the conflict in Southeast Asia. In this new memoir, a former air force pilot shares his experiences of flying hundreds of night missions over Laos. Laos became involved in the war through internal battles and by providing a vital route structure, known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail, for supplies intended for the North Vietnamese Army in South Vietnam. A-1 Skyraider pilots—like the author—flew propeller-driven airplanes which could stay over a target or survivor for an extended time, carry a wide variety of ordnance and absorb a lot of hits. The brave pilots faced guns and mountains in northern Laos and ground fire in southern Laos.

In Firefly: A Skyraider’s Story About America’s Secret War Over Laos, Richard Diller describes missions and how they affected him in exacting detail, drawing on flight logs and audiotapes he sent to his parents, sometimes recorded minutes after returning from a mission. The book also shares details of life on the base—Diller spent a year based at Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, about 300 miles northeast of Bangkok—and the feelings combat pilots deal with every day. This comprehensive insider’s look at an air force pilot’s life ranges from the frustration of endless testing to near-misses during training runs to heart-pounding night missions featuring impossible-to-find targets. Photos put faces to names, and readers will feel like they’re right in the cockpit with Diller as he flies mission after mission.

Author Richard Diller received an officer’s commission in the U.S. Air Force through ROTC at the University of Oklahoma. He went through pilot training at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, and flew more than 200 missions over Laos. Diller flew for 29 years for Delta Air Lines, serving as a line check airman and captain representative to the Air Line Pilots Association for Chicago-based Delta pilots. Diller, who grew up in Princeton, Illinois, is married and has three children and five grandchildren.
