School Story

Mr. L.H. McCue convinced me that I needed to go to college versus the Army. He also helped me qualify for the EC Glass Memorial Fund. A lot of students felt he was not involved or interested in the students but Mr. McCue changed my life.

Hi Clasmates:
The Lynchburg boy is back. My new book, Still Looking for Pieces to Life’s Puzzle, just released in time for some fun summer and beach reading.

Picking up where Life Is a Puzzle with a Few Missing Pieces left off, my new book offers thirty more humorous short stories from my teen years through adulthood. My new stories cover topics like navigating family, friends, life, college, career, and retirement. I also share some crazy memories of cherry-bombed bathrooms, Sputnik, my military career, exploding outhouses, critters, Bigfoot, white-water rafting rescues, Incredible Hulk transformations, unlikely golf championships, DIY disasters, and my attempt to become a mountain man.

You can find both the paperback and e-reader editions are available on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/author/prestonlawhorne

For the readers that would like a signed copy, the books will be available after June 15. Both books in the Life is a Puzzle series will be available with a special price for ordering both books. I am also offering PayPal and accept all major credit cards. It only took me two years to figure out how to do this! Please email me: plawhorne@outlook.com if you are interested in this option. I will add you to my list when I receive my first edition inventory. I would be honored to sign for you. Buy all you want; we will print more!

Please enjoy Still Looking for Pieces to Life’s Puzzle. I hope it makes you laugh, smile, and remember our hometown. Also please share the news with all your friends. Thanks for your support!

Here is the new cover. Let me know what you think! Yes, I wish I still had the car. Luckily, I will have the wife.

Hope you will enjoy the stories about our hometown and growing up in the 50s and 60s.

Hello Classmates,

I am pleased to announce Amazon officially released my book “Life is a Puzzle with a Few Missing Pieces” in paperback and e-reader versions. The book location is based on Lynchburg and you will recognize many of the people, streets, and places that are in my stories.
You can find it by using this link: https://www.amazon.com/author/prestonlawhorne
As promised, the book does not solve world hunger, achieve world peace, or help define the meaning of life. The objectives of my stories are very simple. I hope the book will make you laugh, to smile, and to reflect on our past and present.
Thanks for being part of my memories.

Martin, it has been a while since Burroughs. Gald to see we are both still kicking.
