Reminiscent of Bryan Burroughs’s Days of Rage, Killing Jane Fonda Book One is an appetizer for a full course dinner with a dessert every veteran has craved since 1972.
From Henry’s American darling to a Veteran’s disdain, Killing Jane Fonda doesn’t simply sketch the life of a starlet but explores an evolution along her road to perdition.
Punctuated in a series, Book One confronts Fonda and the analogous of a similar orbit, each of them intersecting the trials, losses, and pain of others upon which they’ve cast their contempt.

A Navy wife learns her husband is listed missing somewhere in North Vietnam and must deal with violent anti-war activists at her door, her son oblivious to his father’s fate.
Combat Veteran Larry Grathwohl returns home from Vietnam to a thankless city, realizing a coming battle on the streets of America threatens everything he represents.
‘Killing Jane Fonda confronts America’s enemies, the seedy counterculture of pro-communist Americans, their dirty secrets, debauchery and dark psycho-sexual motivations.’
San Francisco police officer Brian V. McDonnell begins his shift eager for the results of a police association vote, but a Weather Underground bomb placed on the ledge of his office window amasses a deadly carnage.
Another explosion rocks a city, this time in Greenwich Village startling rape victim Donna Ron. She seeks out the local FBI, as she’d seen her curly haired assailant, radical leftist Bill Ayers earlier in the week.

An end result sounding like an Enlisted Performance Record (EPR) is a pitfall of trying to write your own bio and keep it interesting. Attempt one, the detailed self-aggrandizing is well below the fold.
Bio2 – I spent a youth wanting to be in the military and an adulthood doing it. College confirmed I could write and given one goal out of the way (a military career), I’m scrambling to find a purpose beyond the customary “husband” “father” etc.
Writing is an option and this work’s theme has a purpose, a theme I’m emotionally connected to on many levels. Hoping not to be a one-trick pony, I’ll start another work when this series completes. In the interim, I’ll be dealing with a mortgage, credit cards, keeping cars maintained and trying to crack the code on talking sense into male teenagers — oh, and preparing shotgun readiness the older my daughter gets.
