Book Description:

Well, here I go again. All alone except for this suitcase of mine. I’m headed for a new place with new people. Not so bad considering it’s 1944. Lots of guys are in my shoes. We’re in the middle of World War II. Still not so bad. I’m a fireman in the Army Air Corps whatever they’re calling themselves these days. Once again, not bad at all. But I was born in 1963. There’s the bad part.

I was not born with the name Ray Lafayette, but that’s what they call me. I didn’t have kids or smoke a pipe. Hell, I didn’t even like coffee. I do now.

I was born into a different life than this, one with a lot of attachments. Now I carry my life in one bag. One really important bag.

In this time, people call me pal or buddy or sir, good lord they call me sir all the time.

I have friends in this time, and they are the best but do they know me like they think they do? Simply put, NO! Would they die for me? Every bit as much as I would die for them.

To say these folks are tough or strong is an understatement. Superhumans? I don’t think so. They were ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. I didn’t have heroes before this. I didn’t understand them until now.

Since this event has started, I have experienced many things I can’t explain. There is only one other person who has any knowledge of my situation, and I can’t find him. The last words from him were vos non unum, you are not alone.

There was a time I missed all the things that made my life easier as I thought. Here I have no cell phone, no internet, no rock music, no almost anything. As bad as that sounds, I’m not sure if I want to leave here.

He has lived outside of Las Vegas most of his life, but his best memories are of the days fishing in South Texas. Summer vacations were the best.

Interview with Thomas William Lowrie 
In todays tech savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper? Yes, I started on paper but it was hard to read so I switched over.
If you could go back in time, where would you go? I can’t say for sure but I think I might have already done that.
Favorite travel spot? Just about anywhere if I have the right company.
Favorite dessert? Pecan pie, but not store bought. It has to be Tina’s Treasures.
If you were stuck on a deserted island, which three books would you want with you? I can’t pin down any three books but I would want them to be long and intense reads.
What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? Scariest? Strangest? When I was a kid I had finally caught the biggest fish of the day, even had my dad beat. Then a shark bit the back end of my fish off and I no longer had the biggest fish. The scariest thing was a death that occurred years ago, I do not wish to relive it, sorry. The strangest was without a doubt finding that suitcase. I still haven’t figured that one out.
What is the most courageous thing you have ever done? I have on several occasions had to stand between a man and the woman he was wanting to beat. It’s not always the smart thing to do but I will do it again.
Any hobbies? Or name one quirky thing you like to do? I will fish anywhere, any time, any place. Lures, worms, stinkbait, fresh water, salt water, mudpuddles. I also like to BBQ, it seems to bring people together and it makes them happy.
If there is one thing you want readers to remember about you, what would it be? I want them to remember Ray.
