At Last, a Book That Tells the Real Story About Vietnam Veterans
“I was deeply impressed with not only the candor, realism and patriotism of each Veteran; but also, of what they achieved with their lives after Vietnam.” Jay M. Garner, Lt.Gen (Ret), US Army “Your first book was GOOD but this book is “GREAT” and ” AWESOME”. John Wechsler, Vietnam Vet


“Mack Payne is a conversationalist. That means he listens. That’s a rare quality nowadays when yakking and yelling are the norm. But Mack does more than listen. He’s genuinely interested in others, particularly veterans.” Jim Lamb, Vietnam Vet and author Mack Payne’s gripping conversations with a rich cast of nine Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force veterans in his latest book, Conversations with Vietnam Heroes, clearly depicts how the Vietnam War generation is as great as any that ever heeded the call of duty. They fought with dedication to their comrades in arms and to their country. Their vivid accounts and combat-related stories, so well depicted in this book, are portrayed with stirring human drama and emotion. But most importantly, it shows the strength, courage and determination to make a difference and not let the war take away from a productive and rewarding life. Reading the stories of these heroes is hard, but hearing how they overcame is inspiring. A look inside this book provides a glimpse of the sacrifices and dedication it takes to be a soldier—the candor, realism, and patriotism of each veteran and all they endured during the war and throughout life.

A call from a stranger leads me on a journey I could never have imagined. The caller said he had my uncle’s car. How could this be? My uncle died in WW II when his plane was shot down over the Bay of Biscay off the coast of England. After some questioning I realized I had the opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity to learn a bit about the uncle I had heard about my entire life, an uncle who died 3 years before I was born, an uncle I had always wanted to know more about. I also was being given the gift of a car that had been built by this uncle’s own hands and the hands of those he had been close to in his final years.


The real treasure was the bond I formed with a man and the incredible story he told. The story of my uncle, the building of the car, and the people they both loved. The Special is a fact based novel; the story of family, love and trust in the face of worldwide catastrophe. In 1941 Billy Pendleton hitch-hiked to California to seek his fortune; little did he know what the future would bring. After encouragement from his new found friend and landlord he is soon building an automobile to set speed records and rubbing elbows with some of the legends of motor racing history. Into this heady world walked the woman that would change his life forever. As the car is built romance blooms and the world slips into a war that will touch every person on the planet.

From Goodreads:

Excellent Brain Candy! I ALWAYS read 3 or 4 books at a time- something hilarious (Jen Lancaster, David Sedaris,Tina Fey,Nora Ephron) a best- seller,a little non-fiction (I’ve been reading The Power of Now of six years,and I’m only on Chapter Four, but I really like it) and I have to slog through my book- club’s selection of the month.”

Unburying Hope” is so addicting that I put my other books aside and pretty much couldn’t do ANYTHING until I learned the fates of Eddie, the mysterious, tortured and smoking hot vet (not the kind who gives your dog his flea meds),Celeste, the hopeful, Motor City-loving grafitti artist, and her fabulous bestie Frank.

The characters are authentic, the plot line is riveting- but- believable, and the book is thought-provoking and just plain fun to read. I can’t really say much more, because of the spoiler alert thing, but trust me- it’s a great read. The day after I read this book I woke up wondering how Frank was doing …..and experienced that post-book disappointment when you remember you finished the book, and you are going to miss your favorite characters.

In the very near future, China, now the world’s largest industrial producer and consumer of Mideast Oil, passes a law that all new cars manufactured in that nation will be operated on natural gas. Beneath the floor of the South China Sea, around the contested Spratly Islands, billions of gallons of natural gas wait to be mined. But at the center of the Spratlys, the remote but strategic island of Itu Aba is occupied by China’s historic enemy, Taiwan.

When the new, power-hungry Chinese President, Tang Qhichen, orders Chinese Naval forces to attack Taiwanese forces on Itu Aba, U.S. President Douglas Surber responds, ordering the U.S. Seventh Fleet to try and quell a burgeoning naval showdown between the two Chinas.

Aboard the submarine tender U.S.S. Emory S. Land, one of the first ships in the naval war zone, is Ensign Stephanie Surber, a recent Naval Academy graduate who is also the First Daughter of the United States. As the Emory S. Land steams into harm’s way, Ensign Surber’s life is gravely threatened. The President must make a decision. Will he take a stand against evil? Or will he save the life of his daughter?
