Rewriting His Future

 

Terry Cromwell ‘79L won’t let cancer stifle creativity

(UNH Today, March 28, 2019)

Cromwell and family

Brain tumor. Before he heard those words, Terrence “Terry” Cromwell ’79L had served as a sergeant in the Marine Corps, raised three children with his wife of 43 years and built a successful and varied legal career that included work in corporate law, construction law and high-tech. Cancer, and the treatments that came with it, brought that career to a halt.

“But lucky for me, when I was diagnosed I had enjoyed a long history of creative writing, with the publishers’ rejections beginning in the ’70s to prove it,” Cromwell says, his wit — and his refusal to let illness stifle his creativity or his humor — evident in each comment he makes. “My reward for beating a 2008 prostate cancer diagnosis was a brain tumor in 2011.”

Post-diagnosis and through his still-ongoing treatment — in the midst of which he could not speak, walk, see clearly or swallow, necessitating an emergency tracheostomy — Cromwell has had a strategy. “I’ve been evolving my writing from …..(read the full article here)

Tc’s (Purposeful) RAiLBAK Adventures (I)

 

Now Railbak returns to his Montana beginnings compliments of Tc who brings Railbak’s dynamic military ops adventures to light from the dark global shadows Railbak operated in as a US Marine, after casting long shadows over his beloved Montana as a favorite son. Railbak is again recruited by the US Government to bring his unique brand of Montana-character driven trouble-shooting to terminate a domestic terrorist threat centered in the neighboring state previously known for its Badlands. Only this time a terrorist threat focused directly at the upheaval and cessation of production of a million-barrels of oil per day from the richest oil patch in the US, commonly known as: The Bakken. (approx. 150,000 words)

 


Tc’s (Purposeful) RAiLBAK Adventures (II)  (English/Spanish/Italian)

 

Tc’s (Purposeful) RAiLBAK Adventures Vol II is a typical Tc-creation:  Conversational Novella. But don’t think for a minute it’s necessarily a short, fast read. Vol II is approximately 45,000 words and at times a complex read, confusing even Tc because it’s dedicated solely to characters’ conversations. When Tc’s under-performing left eye starts to shut down; it for some reason transfers a like sentiment to Tc’s brain and he periodically has no idea who is speaking which is the not-so-subtle sign for: break time. Regardless the roller coaster element to Vol II; it provides a valuable look at the preparation and chaos, which is a signature characteristic of Railbak missions. Every participant on Railbak’s teams is a leader and expert in their skill set; and it shows through during Vol II’s purposeful interaction between the team contributors. Enjoy; as we prepare with Railbak for Volume III.
