Inspiration takes a twisting path, and mine has been fed over the years by serendipity, circumstance, kind people, and a lot of research! When I completed “Together We Fly: Voices From The DC-3,” I had a problem. I’d come to know James Douglas, son of Donald Douglas–the founder of Douglas Aircraft Company. He graciously shared with me many stories that just didn’t fit into that book.
So, in my mind and heart these stories rested, until I was ready to embark on the journey of writing the Donald Douglas story. On this page I’ll share with you snippets from my research as we build up to the book’s release in summer 2018 by ASA. Jim passed away several years ago, but the story of his father lives on, and deserves to be shared.
