Charles Frankhauser started writing fiction about 15 years ago as a typing exercise after years of not using that skill. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served more than 4 continuous years at sea first on a surface ship then aboard a diesel-electric submarine. Some of his boyhood adventures are adapted into the storyline in the first Chapter of Atlantic City Nazi, an historical fiction published on Amazon. He presents actual experiences in the memoir, Miss Williams, in an attempt to emphasize the importance of pursuing education as a primary goal in life.
