I never saw this book coming. I certainly didn’t go looking for such an ordeal, either. But life assigned custody of the tale into my inexperienced hands and there began my challenge. I’ve never written before.
This story concerns the lives of two ambitious individuals, born in the early years of the 20th Century, Mont Chumbley and his love Helen Thompson Chumbley. This first volume examines their lives from childhood to excellence in the fields of aviation and show business, and how both attained success.
However, River is a true story and not all was elegance and achievement. Both hailed from difficult families and beginnings. Though Helen and Chum enjoyed adulation separately, together the issues of family, especially Helen’s mother, threatened their bond.
How the story came to me, in all it’s unlikely circumstances is covered in the pages of the book. However, I do plan to explain the background details and examples from the narrative in later blogs.
