When I first read Dave Bullock’s suspense thriller Forced Succession, I knew he had the knack for that genre. Not surprising, given his background. Born into a military family, Dave grew up living in many locales from Alaska to California to Massachusetts. After college, he served in the air force as a pilot, rising to become a squadron commander before his retirement. He continued wearing the uniform for another fifteen years as a high school AFJROTC instructor, and then retired a second time.
Dave now resides in Georgia with his wife, Dawn, where he writes full time. His novel The Last Rapier is about USAF pilot Major Jesse Hardin, who is selected as the first female test pilot for the X-66 Rapier Test Program. She is unnerved to learn that the first of the two top-secret planes has disappeared without a trace somewhere over the Pacific. You’ll have to buy the book to find out what happens next.
“Once again, your evaluation was terrific and will be invaluable in my repair of the manuscript. I believe The Last Rapier has commercial potential, but as I said earlier, I knew something wasn’t right about it. You have helped me see what those weaknesses are, and I can fix them. Thank you.”
