On a ship where a Navy captain reveals God, a friendly German-American NROTC midshipman has to find his way into the heart of someone who he has admired all his life, who he has known to be the Eve of his heart. See his journey as he climbs the skies up to twenty-five-thousand feet in Navy airplanes and helicopters. Observe how he is able to find his way into a career in the Navy notwithstanding the stresses from within his own family.
Letters to Evelyn is a brand new view of the place we know as The United States and ourselves. See how humankind takes over the Universe in the most competitive world of Naval Aviation. Follow the true love story of a young man in love with a woman he has seen only since the dawn of time. See the real aliens living in our galaxy, the Zea, Seh, playh, grays, Bleh, and Dreh. See what's flying in our skies under the close observances of God. A scientific journey past the edge of interest.
My story is one that must be told and I am bringing it to you for every reason an extraterrestrial contactee would want to share his story. This religious testimony and U.S. Navy memoir is mostly about unrequited love, but it also has elements of otherworldly exploration, which I have experienced at many points of my life. Thank you for making it this far, now let's prepare ourselves for the journey ahead.
I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1976. As you might discover by reading my book, I think you'll find many people like me have found themselves in instances when little can be done to manage risk in danger. Life since my recovery has been much more enjoyable and constructive now that I'm getting back to work as a mechanical engineer. My novella is intended for anyone with a sense of adventure. I was a Student Naval Aviator and a Division Officer with an extraordinary story to tell. I fell in love with a woman decades ago not meeting her until she touched my hands in 2009. This is my story.
What inspired me to write Letters to Evelyn was that I was seeing so many things wrong with a negative outlook on life. I thought that I would give some of my dreams away that integrate with reality.
My name is John J. Selman, I'm originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, however I grew up in Brunswick, Maine when my parents moved here when I was four. I thought that Brunswick, Maine had a strong tradition with poetry so, much of what I've seen in the English language are displayed in a lyrical sense.
I graduated first in my NROTC class at the University of Maine with a B.A. in German Language and Literature, and with my degree, I chose to join naval service to become a pilot. My flight time has been spent in 9 different types of aircraft and I presently have two world records, one for the longest time spent with no sleep, greater than 12 days, that's talked about in my memoir, Letters to Evelyn, and my second is for the steepest, highest Sarajevo Approach with the lowest recovery in a T-34C. I flew from 6000 feet down to five feet above the treetops onto Elgin AFB at greater than a seventy degree nose down attitude. So, I enjoyed writing Letters to Evelyn because it allowed me to construct worlds with an impression, and give some of my ideas about what I believe is an ideal earth.
