For many years, even decades, several of my writings have remained on paper or on one hard drive transferred from any earlier one. Finally, here is a convenient place not only to store my thoughts and observations, but also to share them.
My major work, The Golden Boy: A Biography of Jackie Jensen, took thirteen years to complete and was published in 2000. Prior to that I coauthored two martial arts books with Grandmaster Seung Gyoo Dong: Progressive Sparring, and Sparring Structure.
The first writing for which I received money was a piece for COSMOPOLITAN entitled “The Kindest Cut,” and for Tae Kwon Times I wrote two articles: “The Elbow: A Dangerous Weapon” and “Should Instructors Spar Their Students?”
Several articles were published in professional journals when I was a professor, and I was pleased to have an essay published in Virginia Writing while I was an instructor at Fork Union Military Academy.
Off and on I work on two screen plays, one based on The Golden Boy and another based on the life of Ethan Allen, with whom I am related (and I was born in Ticonderoga, the fort which he captured from the British). Furthermore, in progress is what I term a biography of a business, to be titled Chester Says: A Guide for Starting a Small Business.
