In the world of industrial security and security clearances, Stan is the man! No offense to Stan Musial, but I am referring to Stan Miller. Stan is honorably retired from the U.S. Navy where he spent a year tour in Vietnam and he also served for seven months in Iraq as a civilian contractor. Stan has spent most of his working professional life in the security arena and has had a security clearance supporting collateral, sensitive and special programs that entire time.
Stan has also done a lot of philanthropic work in addition to his security work. For example, Stan was the past chairman of Tennessee Valley Chapter of the National Military Intelligence Association and the past chairman of the Mid-South Chapter, Society of Industrial Security Professional (NCMS). In fact, Stan has done so much in this area as it relates to industrial security that the NCMS - Mid -South chapter awards an annual scholarship in his name. Stan still works a good bit in the security field and, in addition, and not just because he looks the part, he also spends the Christmas holidays as Stanta Claus! I think you will enjoy hearing about this patriot's life.
If you are a fan of the books by author - attorney Robert Bailey, then here is some good news! Bob's latest book, The Last Trial, will be available on May 8, 2018 at bookstores everywhere. Here is the Amazon link to all three of the books in the McMurtrie & Drakeseries. THE PROFESSOR is book one and came out in 2014. BETWEEN BLACK AND WHITE is book two and came out in 2016. There will be a book launch for THE LAST TRIAL at Books-A-Million on Memorial Parkway in Huntsville on May 9th from 6-8 pm. I have Bob's first two books sitting in a prominent position on my nightstand. For reasons that I explain in the podcast, I am waiting to read them because I am both envious of what Bob is doing and writing my own fiction novel (or trying to!). As a result, I have not been reading fiction as of late because I'm trying to keep my head clear with my own story. In any event, Bob is living the life that a number of lawyers, myself included, wish they were doing - the full-time practice of law along with what is appearing to be for Bob a full-time and well-received writing career. You can keep up with his story by "liking" his Facebook Page. Bob is a highly respected lawyer with the esteemed firm of Lanier Ford located in Huntsville, Alabama. I enjoyed spending some time with him discussing both the law and the craft of writing and where and how he finds the time to do it. I think you will enjoy this and pick up Bob's novels when you get a chance!
