I’m interested in the proper use/techniques of a shotgun for defense. If anyone can suggest some good reading material it would be appreciated.

I strongly agree on the material available written by Louis Awerbuck (RIP).  

Also, an excellent video is available from Panteo productions, called "Bill Jeans - Shotgun Operator"   I've trained with both these gentleman and am privileged to still count Mr. Jeans among my friends. 
The DVD covers mostly pump shotguns, as those are the preferred favorite of so many.  Mr. Jeans covers the set-up and desired accessories for the fighting shotgun, ammo selection, and types of ammo,  ie;  birdshot, buckshot, slugs, teargas, flares, etc.
He goes into how to properly mount the weapon to your body, how to manipulate it in a fight, including keeping it loaded,  how to sling it, and present it from various sling positions,  He covers transitions to your sidearm from a sling equipped and non-sling equipped shotgun,  and how to use accessories like lights, etc.   
He follows with patterning shot loads at various distances, penetration of different loads, including slugs,  and introduces you to many drills to build your competence and confidence with the shotgun.   
It's the best video I've seen for the average individual on how to employ the pump shotgun in a fight.
I also have DVDs from Magpul and Gabe Suarez on fighting with shotguns but the Bill Jeans video is the one I recommend to shooters who are learning to fight with something they may have been using for "bunny hunting" for decades.  I also watch it again on occasion for refresher purposes.  Available from Panteo productions.  
Good luck!  We expect to hear progress results.   :-)

>DWilson I am envious of you. I never had the opportunity to meet Awerbuck and based on his writings and videos he was an interesting, out of the box instructor. Mr. Jeans reputation speaks for itself; I hope one day to read he is teaching again as it would be well worth the money to learn from him in person.

I appreciate your suggestions and will check it out. I always enjoy learning and prefer to do it properly the first time.
