Ethan Collins works as a pilot for a National Air Carrier. The pilot resides in Arizona with his wife plus two children, Jack (12) and Stacy (9). Once per month during summer Ethan flies Jack to their favorite beach in California. When not in the cockpit Ethan has a passion for writing. Collins pens stories which hinge on difficult relationships. Do Not Mix with Alcohol is this author’s second novel.
Writing a hobby, Collins planned the on-again/off-again masterpiece to be his only book. A marginalized pen lolls below his busy work-travel schedule and love of his family but as pilots train to be meticulous planners Ethan plots a third children’s story set in West Africa in time for daughter Stacy’s kids to enjoy.
Collins was discovered on a transatlantic flight after author Cosmo Starlight read the pilot’s short stories and promised to forward Ethan’s notebooks to Church Publishing. Collins’ first The Diamond Party began as one of those tales but evolved into a novel about boys who take advantage of girls, men who take advantage of goodwill, and a society dependent upon evil to get things done. And when asked for his magnum opus Collins answers it was the courtship with his wife, a nutritionist.
