“Midway” – Invitation to VIP Reception & Special Screening

MIDWAY event my first solo appearance since Bill’s passing in October 2019

Poster for movie MIDWAYThe Tug McGraw Foundation invited Bill to a VIP Reception and special screening of the World War II film, MIDWAY, on February 15, 2020. The event will honor WWII veterans living at the California Veterans Home in Yountville as well as other WWII veterans living in the Napa Valley.
I’m honored to attend in Bill’s absence. This will be my first author outing on my own since Bill’s passing in October 2019. A little nervous, I’m prepping with new business cards and boning up on how to schmooze for introverts.

About the Film
MIDWAY centers on the Battle of Midway, the clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy which marked a pivotal turning point in the Pacific Theater during WWII. The film, based on the real-life events of this heroic moment, tells the story of the leaders and soldiers who used their instincts, fortitude, and bravery to overcome the odds.

If you missed The Last Roundup — Remembering Bill McGee

William "Bill" L. McGeeAs many of you know, Bill went to his last roundup on October 30, 2019. He would be proud and touched — as am I — by the outpouring of condolences via cards, handwritten notes, emails, and contributions made in his memory. Many of you saw beyond the often gruff nature to the creative and independent man he was.

I’ve been asked, “Will you keep your writing and publishing business going without Bill?” My answer: yes. I’m grateful to be the literary heir of nine titles on Amazon. Marketing, rewriting content, keeping up with social media, plus a few new works in the chute will keep me busy.
