SHOT DOWN: The true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth

An Amazon Best Seller and winner of 20 national book awards, SHOT DOWN is set within the framework of World War II in Europe and recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane, piloted by the author's father, was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgiam border in 1944.  Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war.  Some evaded the Germans for awhile but were betrayed, captured, and shot. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for seven months before being liberated by the U.S. Army. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable.

Mary Fields aka Stagecoach Mary

This is the story of Mary Fields, ‘Stagecoach Mary', who got her nickname at the turn of the 20th Century.  She earned this nickname by working for the, ‘United States Postal System' delivering the United States Mail through adverse conditions that would have discouraged the most hardened frontiersmen of that period.  All by herself, she never missed a day for 8 years, carrying the U. S. Mail and other important documents that helped settle the wild open territory of central west Montana.  Stagecoach Mary had no fear of man, nor beast, and this sometimes got her into trouble.  Stagecoach Mary delivered the mail regardless of the heat of the day, cold of night, wind, rain, sleet, snow, blizzards, Indians and Outlaws.

Stagecoach Mary was 6 feet tall, and weighed over 200 pounds, and even with ‘those' extraordinary extremes, there were two more facts that made ‘her' history.  Stagecoach Mary was the second woman in ‘history' to carry the U. S. Mail, however, even that was a matter of simplicity, for a fact, she was a Negro Woman, and the only ‘Negro', for hundreds and hundreds of miles when she first arrived in Montana.

This feature story will cover Stagecoach Mary's colorful life, from the plantation where she was born a slave in 1832, to the famous Steamboat race between the “Robert E. Lee” and the “Natchez” on the Mississippi River, to her death in Cascade, Montana, 1914.

Monsters & Bugs
Not one's home, we live myth before we engage it in a story. About a decade before she died, the author's mother tells a story about the author's first encounter with worms around the age of three. This story becomes the inspiration for beginning Monsters & Bugs as a poetry series. Working this poetry using a mythopoetic method leads to the discovery of a hidden figure in the author's inner world, a tiny bug once called, “the worm of the tree.” Sometimes our tiniest images carry an immense weight of monstrous importance leading back, not to a set of ideas, but to an ear that hears through what reverberates beyond itself out of a poetic basis in mind. Hearing through radically, the poems found in Monsters & Bugs form a kind of scaffold re-imagining of a narrative home-coming within it in which to absorb poetic experiences.
