Rosemary Beach resident Cym Lowell is giving back to the men and women who have served America through his second published novel, "Jasper's War."

One hundred percent of the book's proceeds will be donated to Soldiers' Angels, a non-profit organization that provides aid and comfort to the men and women that have served in the United States Armed Forces.

"I wanted to find a way to honor our wounded heroes," said Lowell. "Soldiers' Angels is almost a pure volunteer-run organization. Its voice-activated computer program is perfect for my dream of helping those who allow us to be free through their sacrifices. Watching these heroes receive means of communication is heartening."

Lowell, who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, travels the world as a tax attorney and has written professional tax books for 30-plus years. As a hobby, Lowell has been writing fiction for about 20 years, although he mainly hid this talent.

"I'd write manuscripts, put them on a shelf, then start the next," he said, "until my sweetheart said I should see if they have traction."

In 2008, Lowell published his first novel, "Riddle of Berlin," and on April 4, Lowell published his second book "Jasper's War."

The book follows Jasper Moran, a mom and wife who searches the globe for her missing children after she learns her husband's flight on a government jet has crashed.
