ABOUT ME

For almost 40 years, I worked as a military journalist, newspaper editor and public relations practitioner around the globe. From drafting feature stories during the Vietnam era through coverage of the Lake Placid Olympics, I’ve documented service members at work worldwide with my writing, editing and photographic skills.

 

Today, I live in Fort Worth, Texas. I retired a decade ago as the civilian public affairs director at Fort Hood, near Killeen. That was after serving 11 years as the Army’s spokesperson in the “media capitol of the world” – New York City. I like to describe myself as a freelance writer and quality management consultant, pursuing a creative writing future in both fiction and non-fiction. 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Marble Surface

Mr. Peanutbutter

I picked up Mr. Zielsdorf’s second novel after throughly enjoying his debut Green Card Soldier. It follows the adventures of journalist Heath Winslow during the upheaval in Germany in the late 80s before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Without knowledge of history we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.

 

Anyone younger who isn’t aware of the political shift from authoritarian USSR to the current social democratic state of Germany should read this book. For anyone older like myself it’s a great reminder, put in a very entertaining package. It’s a quick a fun read but also educational. Highly recommend!
