Here's an update to Janet and Richard Fogg's Sweet Success story:
Richard and Janet Fogg's military history book, Fogg in the Cockpit (ISBN 978-1612000046, hardcover) will be released by Casemate on June 19, 2011.
Casemate has just announced that the book will be featured by the Military Book Club. The book has also been featured in an article in the Longmont Weekly. The Foggs will be attending the 359th Fighter Group Association’s reunion in Dayton in July and manage the Facebook page for the 359th Fighter Group, 1943-1945. The book will be released worldwide; see the author's website at www.janetfogg.com for more information.
Prior to a distinguished career that saw him referred to as the dean of American railroad artists, Captain Howard Fogg kept a diary during his World War II combat tour in England. He flew 76 missions with the 359th Fighter Group in bomber escort and ground attack roles.
From his backstage encounter in a London theater with Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, to the pre-dawn chaplain's benediction on June 6, 1944, to a B-17 escort mission in the snow capped French Alps to drop supplies to French freedom fighters, Fogg in the Cockpit offers a first hand look at his fascinating and often unexpected story.
The diary is augmented with a wealth of additional material, including a biography, period photographs, examples of Howard's art from before and during his career, excerpts from 1943-44 reports filed by both the Fighter Group’s Historian and Chaplain, and supplementary details which enhance many of the terms and events referenced in the diary.
Ultimately, Fogg in the Cockpit is more than just the story of one man's service. It presents the reader with a unique perspective during a pivotal moment in world history, as the Allies gained momentum for their final push to victory.
Janet’s focus on novel-length fiction and screenplays began when she was CFO for one of Colorado’s coolest architectural firms. Fifteen writing awards later, Janet resigned from OZ Architecture to write full-time, and in 2009 her award-winning time-travel romance, Soliloquy, was released. In June 2011, Casemate will release Fogg in the Cockpit, co-authored by Janet and her husband Richard Fogg.
Janet is hard at work on two new books, is a long-time member of RMFW, Pikes Peak Writers, and two fantastic critique groups. In her free time she has fun with cars with Richard.
