2) “Ask Dr. Walt” in Today’s Christian Living

I enjoy being able to answer questions from the readers of Today’s Christian Living magazine in my “Ask Dr. Walt” column. Here is my Q&A from the July 2021 issue. I hope you’ll consider getting a subscription:

  • Energy Drinks
    • Dear Dr. Walt, I’m leery of all these energy drinks and shots my teenage grandchildren drink all the time. The kids feel they get an extra boost of energy and like the taste. Are there any dangers to them? — A Bit Weary in West Virginia
  • Caffeine
    • Dear Dr. Walt, My wife and I enjoy our morning coffee time. It gets us up and running. And we both have a few cuppas during the day. But we’re wondering whether this is healthy or not. Any advice? — Morning Joe and Josephine in New Jersey

3) Endorsements for my WWII Book, “At First Light

It’s not scheduled for release until April 2022, but my book about my dad and his amazing exploits on the “forgotten” Southern Front in Europe during WWII, is receiving all sorts of great “advanced praise” from reviewers. The tentative title is At First Light: A True World War II Story of a Hero and His Horse.

Here are a few of the earliest endorsements:

“This story is extraordinary: an almost forgotten hero, tough combat, tragic sacrifice, gripping aftermath, a marvelous horse, and an astonishing ending. Don’t miss reading this remarkable book. At First Light is a way for you to join me in remembering and honoring the story of our World War II heroes, those selfless Americans who put it all on the line downrange, day after difficult day, in crushing heat and numbing cold, in the toughest conditions, against the most challenging, resilient, often barbaric enemy to liberate Europe and to help safeguard our freedom and liberty here at home.”

David H. Petraeus, U.S. Army (Ret.) four-star general, former Director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, and former Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan

“I spent the majority of my life fighting battles on the football field—thirty years in the National Football League, nine Super Bowls, and legendary classics like the famous ‘Ice Bowl.’ I’ve told my ‘war stories’ from the NFL for years, but none of my tales come close to the captivating story shared by Dr. Walt Larimore in At First Light, a war story about his father who fought to protect the very freedoms you and I enjoy in this country we love.”

Dan Reeves, Super Bowl Champion, and record-setting NFL player and coach

“As the author of fifteen novels set in World War II, I’m always drawn to a great story from a fascinating time in history. At First Light does not disappoint. The pages turned quickly in this compelling story about a brave man, Philip Larimore.”

Tricia Goyer, author of Dawn of a Thousand Nights and Songbird Under a German Moon

“I love World War II books, and none is better than At First Light. It’s like a combination of Band of Brothers and War Horse—or perhaps a mixture of Unbroken and Seabiscuit. A mesmerizing page-turner not to be missed.”

Pat Williams, co-founder of the NBA’s Orlando Magic and former general manager of NBA teams in Chicago, Atlanta, Orlando, and the 1983 World Champion Philadelphia 76ers

4) First Draft of the Cover for At First Light
