Category: Adult Fiction, 264 pages
Genre: Historical Fiction, Military and War

Book Description

Well, here I go again. All alone except for this suitcase of mine. I’m headed for a new place with new people. Not so bad considering it’s 1944. Lots of guys are in my shoes. We’re in the middle of World War II. Still not so bad. I’m a fireman in the Army Air Corps whatever they’re calling themselves these days. Once again, not bad at all. But I was born in 1963. There’s the bad part.

I was not born with the name Ray Lafayette, but that’s what they call me. I didn’t have kids or smoke a pipe. Hell, I didn’t even like coffee. I do now.

I was born into a different life than this, one with a lot of attachments. Now I carry my life in one bag. One really important bag.

In this time, people call me pal or buddy or sir, good lord they call me sir all the time.

I have friends in this time, and they are the best but do they know me like they think they do? Simply put, NO! Would they die for me? Every bit as much as I would die for them.

To say these folks are tough or strong is an understatement. Superhumans? I don’t think so. They were ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. I didn’t have heroes before this. I didn’t understand them until now.

Since this event has started, I have experienced many things I can’t explain. There is only one other person who has any knowledge of my situation, and I can’t find him. The last words from him were vos non unum, you are not alone.

There was a time I missed all the things that made my life easier as I thought. Here I have no cell phone, no internet, no rock music, no almost anything. As bad as that sounds, I’m not sure if I want to leave here.

Reading and Different Genres 
by Thomas William Lowrie
When I read something it has to have a good plot and some action. I read almost all genres of book but there always has to be one thing, comedy. It can be subtle humor where almost no one gets it or a good tongue in cheek joke can really get me to go back and reread something. Sometimes a character just needs to be dumb/ silly/ stupid which is my favorite kind of person. The kind you never know what they will say next.
As I travel I like to take audiobooks with me, my collection includes many of the action novels or mystery whodunnits, With a background in most things mechanical I like to read about those types of things. I have only recently gotten into some scifi thriller stories that I really like because they have that one ingredient that I must have, humor. It doesn’t have to take over the book but it has to be there somewhere.
All my life I have been reading technical manuals for one thing or another, yes, they were boring but I read them because I had to, not because I wanted to. I took all that information and threw it out the window and told myself. “Tom, don’t write like that”. And now one of my current books being written is an all-out comedy. My decision to write it is because the world needs a good ‘ol stupid comedy, we need to laugh.
With the current condition of the world and our country, I decided to attempt the impossible. Get people laughing again. My all time favorite movie is Blazing Saddles. I don’t even know what my second favorite is. My next book will be along the lines of that, not the old western but more of how stupid can you get and still be funny.
That being said, man cannot live on comedy alone, I need to change things up like most everyone else. To say I read everything is a false statement, I believe that when women write what they call romance a man would be called something entirely different for writing it. He might even get a call from a lawyer so I will leave that to others.
