I am J. E. Pendleton, Jim to my friends.  I write World War II era fiction within an historically accurate framework.  My imagination creates the story and history dictates my timeline. 

When I began my first book, The Special, my intention was to write a created history of a car I was building.  My plan was for the car to be built by my uncle, my father's only brother, who died before I was born.  An uncle I heard about my entire life.  A man I wanted to know more about but had no way to. However, as time passed a different story began to flow from my fountain pen. I was shocked at the turns the story took, but pleased with the end result. 

The resulting story is a novel set in World War II about family, love and trust in the face of world wide catastrophe.  The story begins in 1941 when Billy Pendleton left Fort Worth and hitch-hiked to California to seek his fortune. Little did he know what awaited.  After encouragement from his new found friend and landlord he is soon building an automobile to set speed records, and rubbing elbows with some of the legends of motor racing history.  Into this heady world walked the woman who would change his life forever.  As the car is build romance blooms and the world slips into a war that will touch every person on the planet.
