Gene Moore

He was a baseball prodigy. At the age of fifteen, Gene Moore was a boy, playing like a man, in a game where men, play like boys.

Headed for baseball stardom with the Brooklyn Dodgers, his destiny was interrupted by
Pearl Harbor.
His life... and
maybe our
would be
forever altered.

About the Illustrator

Val J. Laolagi graduated from Santa Clara University with degrees in Computer Science and Art. He has been in the High-Tech Industry fourteen years and has been an artist since the age of three.

Val rekindled his artistic talent by drawing portraits and painting murals. He was then discovered by Savas Beatie LLC, Publisher of Historical Titles of Distinction.

Val's work includes original pencil art illustrations that capture many of the enduring moments written up in Playing with the Enemy. Val also provided twenty-two fascinating watercolor paintings for Angela McCuaig's children's book manuscript My Brain Matter Really Matters!

Val has also teamed up with Marc CB Maxwell, a former Army Airborne Ranger, to produce the illustrations for Surviving Military Separation, set for release in Fall 2007.
