Fort Worth Writers Publishing News

We’d like to congratulate Jerry Gladyz who has contracted with Fawkes Press to publish his military thriller Dying to Fly. The book chronicles the life of a new helicopter pilot in the Vietnam war. On the flight over he meets a national columnist, who will do anything for a story. She vows to stop the war. All he wants to do is fly. While awaiting orders in Saigon, he is assaulted by US soldiers and nearly dies in a terrorist bombing. Events spiral out of control when he starts flying in the First Cavalry Division. He is ambushed, hijacked, crashes and lives the nightmare of combat in the air and on the ground. The First Cavalry Airmobile Division wasn’t what it was cracked up to be.
