I have just published an exciting biography "Destiny Strikes Twice: James L. Breese Aviator and Inventor:"
Pioneer aviator James L. Breese was on the first transatlantic flight and then developed 130 patents for oil heating. Dismissing his family’s high society Long Island life, Jim moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1929 to start fresh and build a multimillion dollar oil burner business. His marriages, however, presented difficult challenges. The twists and turns through his adventure-packed life reveal lessons for everyone including many insights for aspiring inventors and entrepreneurs.
