    LINCOLN, NE, February 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- RG Bud Phelps, author of 'Back In The Day', has been chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The contest was sponsored by The Authors Show. 'Back In The Day' is the second installment in Phelps' 'life series'. Phelps was also a winner in the 2012 '50 Great Authors You Should be Reading' for his book 'Gibbon's Secrets - A Boy's Memories of the 40's'.

"I am proud," Phelps stated, "to be a 2013 winner in '50 Great Authors You Should be Reading'. 'Back in the Day' parallels my memories from high school through my service in the U.S. Navy, and represents the memories and experiences of thousands of Americans who grew up in the same era."

In the book series, Phelps shares a young man's historical fiction experiences throughout high school, summers in-between, and four years in the Navy. These experiences and relationships begin with growing up in a small town in Nebraska, where a healthy atmosphere was common in the 1950's. He elected to classify the incidents and individual characters in this story as historical fiction to allow the sharing of his recollections of the content and order. The dialogues used throughout the story are the types of conversations recalled by Phelps during the time frame of the story.

Curtis is a small town in the southwestern corner of Nebraska, with a population in the 1,000 range during the period of time of this story. The Nebraska School of Agriculture (NSA) was the only Ag high school in the state of Nebraska, and the high school featured in this story. Phelps secured historical Navy records from the National Personnel Records Center which have made it possible to create a more realistic historical timeline of "Duty Stations" and dates when earned leaves were taken. Actual information about the individual duty stations have been taken from: US Naval Training Center in San Diego CA; US Naval Air Training Center in Jacksonville, FL; US Naval Air Station in Quonset Point, RI; US Naval Air Station in Atlantic City, NJ; VC-4 Squadron at Naval Air Station in Atlantic City, NJ; and the USS Valley Forge, CVS-45 - all which have been included in this historical fiction story.

The book has a 4 star rating on Amazon. One reviewer stated, "Phelps' book is written with honesty and humor that captures beautifully what it was like to live in America, especially the mid-west, during that time, just as his prequel, 'Gibbon's Secrets', did of the previous ten years." Another stated, "On the other hand, for folks like me, it's a way to gain a better understanding of my country's history. The tone is upbeat and fun...not ponderous, as many true-life history stories are."

RG Bud Phelps is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at bud1949@gmail.com. All of Phelps' works are available at Amazon. More information is available at Phelps' website.

R.G. Bud Phelps graduated from the University of Nebraska School Of Agriculture (UNSA) in 1949, the only agriculture high school in the state. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1955. He married, Patricia Kelly, in 1955. Today they live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Bud and Pat enjoy spending time with their family including three daughters, three sons-in-law, four grand-kids, and one great-grandson, who also all live in Lincoln.

Bud began his career as an accountant and business advisor when he graduated in 1958 from the University of Denver with a BSBA degree, emphasis in Accounting.

He had the good fortune of training at a public accounting firm, Price Waterhouse, while attending the University of Denver. He worked for the manager of the Management Advisory Service (MAS), from whom he received tutoring that would prove to be one of the most valuable experiences of his career

Over the space of more than 50 years, Bud gained a rich background he draws on as he counsels small businesses. With Bud's help, hundreds of businesses have learned how to use accounting systems and financial statements to make a measurable difference in their success.

Since publishing his first book in 2006, he has published several more books in both the arena of business and the world of historical fiction and mysteries. Bud's personal writing philosophy is to rely on his own experiences as a guide, keeping the books both interesting and easy to read.
