His first solo project was Whiskey, Whiskey, Papa - written in 1998. The book chronicles the exciting life and times of a pilot's pilot - Weldy Phipps. Norm contracted the printing to a local company and was promptly shipped many boxes of books as he was also the distributor. This book is out of print.
Altimeter Rising was co-written with Alan MacNutt in 2000. There were no boxes of books every delivered to the house, so we assume Alan did not know better and took on the task of printing and distribution.
In 2009, having learned from doing the printing and distribution of a book himself, Norm self published Spartan - Seven Letters That Spanned the Globe using an Internet-based self-publishing site called lulu.com. Spartan was an early force in mapping the earth using planes. The paperback can be purchased here and the ebook here.
In 2011, he published Mayhem to Mayday - the two wars of Andy MacKenzie, DFC. It is a biography - the life and times of a heroic pilot. The paperback is available here and an ebook is in development.

Norm was a prolific fiction writer, but never quite polished any book well enough to publish in his opinion. Who knows - a book of his short stories might still happen and perhaps Whiskey, Whiskey, Papa might get a second edition as there is demand for this book.
