Why I Wrote MY KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR


My second book is a post-Vietnam era romance. In college George Stivers was one of my best friends. He received his BS in Civil Engineering at the same graduation where my wife and I received our degrees. We were shocked nine months later to read in the alumni news, “In memory of, 2nd Lt. George Stivers.” He had died in the Vietnam War.

I chose to honor him by enabling him to live on in literature. I wrote a book in which he survived the war, but lost an ear. Post war, he practiced his chosen profession, civil engineering. I arranged for him to encounter the girl he loved in college, and. . .well this book is a romance.

The title the book is My Knight in Shining Armor.


I enjoyed recreating George with his sense of humor. I also enjoyed creating a love interest for him by combining two of the girls he dated.

This book was published by Page Publishing, a small press that has gone out of business. Amazon and other on-line sellers still have it listed, but I do not know how much stock they have. I have copies in my personal inventory. There is a bookstore attached to ReynoldConger.com. If you buy it directly from me, I will send you a signed copy.
