Phil Ross and Adrian Miller, two Colorado-based authors, paused to chat briefly following Miller's entertaining, March 31, 2017, presentation and book-signing for his new book, THE PRESIDENT'S KITCHEN CABINET, at the Arapahoe
Library District's Smoky Hill Library in Aurora, Colo. The volume is a follow-up to Adrian's debut book, SOUL FOOD, which, like Phil's debut, ONCE A TROJAN ALWAYS A TROJAN: A True Story, was launched in 2013.
Phil's most recent release, BOTCHED BLOODING: They Tried to Kill Me ... and Then They Stole My Livelihood (A Fictionalized Account of Compelling Actual Events), debuted in April 2017 and now is available
on Amazon.com and Kindle (ebook), along with ONCE A TROJAN and Phil's August 2016 release, BLUE HOMBRES: The Life and Times of Major League Baseball's Latino Umpires, First of a Trilogy.

The purple "tee" is one of three from universities in Abilene, Tex. -- the other two from Abilene Christian University and McMurry University. Adrian's blue-and-gold apron is an official one from the White House's Presidential Food Service. (Photo gallery courtesy
