I’m a published author with a book that just came out this winter. It’s an historical fictional account of what might have occurred if John F. Kennedy had survived the assassination and gone on to fulfill a second term as president. It was about 7 years in the research and writing, as well as a lot of contemplation time – while under all those houses inspecting crawl spaces. The Memoirs of John F. Kennedy at http://www.MemoirsofJFK.com
