Author has written 4 stories for 12 O'Clock High.

Late Starter is a retired Air Force officer. Born in Maine, she currently resides in the Ozark Mountains with her husband, also a retired Air Force officer, and their new Yorkshire Terrier puppy, Abby.

Late Starter loved the 12 O’clock High TV series with Robert Lansing as General Savage. When they killed him off in the second season, she stopped watching. However, she played with ideas about Savage plots and wrote four Savage stories for Fan Fiction. Often boring her husband with them, he finally said, "you should write a book." So she did.

She rewrote her Savage stories into a book with different names and places and incorporating new material. After months of submissions, she was fortunate to be picked up by a publisher, and her book was published as The Group Commander. With another story in her, she followed this with a sequel, Wing Commander, D-Day: Halcyon is Confirmed!, which has just been released.

Both books are available on Amazon, and a number of other Bookstores.
