SIDELIGHTS:

Jack Ruppert told CA: "I moved from the restrictive memo-writing of business to the freedom of writing a column, then a nonfiction work. I am currently at work on a novel about a subject I love: World War II and its aftermath. I write to prove to myself that I can produce something of value for myself as I research and write. Hopefully the reader will also value my work."
