Operation: Next Chapter is
"working with Soldiers Angels Project: Valour-IT to provided 100
voice-controlled, adaptive lap-top computers for military personnel who have
lost the use of their hands. Vietnam Veteran and author Cym Lowell will donate
100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his latest novel, Jaspers War, to
purchase these individually adapted computers which cost $500 a piece. The
laptops allow warriors who are healing from amputations, paralysis, eye
injuries, burns and brain trauma to stay in touch with their family and their
units during their recovery period."
Cym Lowell "was born in Montana
to academics and spent his youth traveling the world. To put it politely, he was
an undistinguished student, rewarded with assignment to the U.S. Navy at 18.
After two years in Vietnam, college and law school were a challenge. Being a
veteran in the political turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s taught
humility. Raising three children in the Midwest and Texas brought love and
responsibility. An international tax practice in the financial crises of the
past 40 years provided insight into motivations of actors on the global stage.
Friends, clients, adversaries, and colleagues, like victory and defeat, added
color and context. The result is a writer with a treasure trove of experience to
frame compelling characters enmeshed in heart-thumping challenges." Cym Lowell
is the author of The Gift, Riddle of Berlin and Jaspar's War.
