Live with Delbert Pillage through the torment of a bullied
youth, joy of teenage romance, satisfaction of adult successes and determination
to persevere in the face of two great loves lost. Evoking a wide range of
emotions, even heart-wrenching at times, Delbert and Sylvia will have you
pulling for them to the very end. And along the way, see life on a small Canadian island in
the 1950's and gain a semi-historical view of the Avro Arrow program, whose
cancellation decimated a strong Canadian aviation industry.
Born in 1938 and raised in B.C., Canada, I obtained an engineering degree majoring in math, physics and electronics two years after the Avro Arrow cancellation decimated Canada’s aviation industry. That led me to emigrate to the States and work 35 years for The Boeing Company, rising to Chief Engineer, Avionics and Flight Systems. After retirement, I first turned my creative juices to developing software for financial planners, in part to keep track of my modest nest egg. In 2009, I succumbed to a long-standing urge to write a novel which was first published under the title "Delbert Pillage" and now as “Two Loves Lost”. A second novel, "The Pizza Dough King" was published late in 2012. For more information, visit www.sandygraham.net and my blog from there.
