R.F. Simmons is a writer, editor, copywriter, hopeful poet, and Vietnam veteran currently residing on the shores of the Admiralty Inlet in Edmonds, Washington. He has published his new book “Sangaster’s Journey”: a lighthearted romp through the lives, work, and relationships of an American reporting team in the Vietnam era.

It’s 1966; a nasty war is raging in Vietnam and in the City Room of Seattle’s favorite newspaper, the Post-Intelligencer. The battle is with its old archrival, the Seattle Times. The P-I has the edge on talent with writers like Frank Herbert, the science fiction author who would go on to write the Dune novels, and Tom Robbins, who created a new genre with “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues” and is now on the P-I copy desk writing headlines.

Into this ever-growing pool of talent, the reporter-photographer team of twenty-five-year-old Rick Sangaster and World War II Marine Corps veteran and pure-blood Sioux Indian Hawkeye O’Sullivan are on the front line. Each of these men has problems from their pasts, as well as their present, but when it comes to reporting the news, or at times creating the news themselves, they’re far ahead of their contemporaries in both the P-I City Room as well as the Times.

Published by Page Publishing, R.F. Simmons’s engrossing book is an excellent choice for avid fiction readers.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Sangaster’s Journey” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
