More About the Author

Writing is my hobby. In my spare time I run company called Systems Consulting. We provide database administration, performance tuning, blah blah services in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

I have written six books with UNIT 999 due out in 2006.

I live with my bride of 28 years in a cozy suburb. The kids are mostly grown. For pets we have a Black Lab named Ripley, a parakeet named YoYo and brand new Yorkshire Terrier named Tikva.

I am a 4th degree blackbelt. I try to run fifteen miles a week. I like to take a bagful of guns to the range and make alot of noise. In the parlance of my company, this is called ballistic research.

There is much more at the website. I urge you to check it out.

Format: Paperback
Checking in at 400+ pages, Blood Covenant displays well the author's meticulous research; however, it would benefit dramatically from a hard edit. On the plus side, the characters in the story seem believable for the most part and the story does unfold in a reasonably cohesive manner, something that is not always the case with this genre. However, the suspense of the story is muted by the novel's ponderous length and its author's periodic forays into biblical/political posturing.
On the whole, however, Blood Covenant is a good first effort and it will be interesting to see what the author does next.

Format: Paperback
In the late 1970s, KGB Chairman Andropov commissions the creation of suitcase-size nuclear bombs. He orders the weapons deployed in Western Europe, Japan, and America. The Soviet Empire crumbles, ending the Cold War. The weapons are forgotten -- until a Hezbollah terrorist cell decides to make New York's Fourth of July celebration it's last. The thread catapults Special Forces major Jim Harper and spymaster Louis Edwards into a desperate race against time to prevent the unthinkable from happening. Confronted by a determined terrorist known as Harlequin, squabbling within the American intelligence community, and an administration more interested in symbolism than substance, Harper tracks harlequin from New York to Boston to Washington to Chicago. Blood Covenant is a highly recommended, gripping story that leaves the reader lunging from page to page in a frantic effort to keep up with the action and survive the building tension.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Sharon Mueller on March 22, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book was nothing like I expected. Yes, there was action and gun battles and confrontations, but it was interesting. Most of the time I just skim over those parts, because one car chase is much like the next. I really did not have any idea how things were going to turn out and who could have predicted what happened in Connecticut.
There is also a kind of humor running through the narrative. Every so often you come across a little gem that depending on how you look at it - is either funny or a little bit sad. I suppose some people might not appreciate this author's world view, but I found the book funny and refreshing. It will be interesting to see where this author goes from here.

Format: Paperback
In the late 1970�s, Dr. David Kudrik, a Russian Jew is being held captive in Arzamas-16, a secret USSR town that does not exist on any map. David is a genius and has gotten a hold of some 8080 microprocessors. With this new technology, he is able to create approximately 132 nuclear bombs for the KGB. These small suitcase-size three-kiloton nuclear bombs, which David named �Samson,� are secretly placed around the world at designated spots by Major Yevgeny Yarovitsin. When the USSR collapses, the bombs are forgotten about because the KGB never reported them being made. Now, in 1999, Yevgeny is living the high life while selling these bombs to the highest bidder. Recently he has sold ten of these bombs to Iranian terrorist who plan on detonating them on United States soil. Lou Feldman, Assistant Director in charge of Domestic Terrorism Unit, learns of these suitcase nuclear bombs and has agents trying to figure out how many bombs there and who has them. Begrudgingly, he assigns Harvey Randall, who is on his black list because he embarrassed the FBI a few years back, to help figure out whom the terrorists are. Harvey, an overweight, middle-aged cowboy does things his own way, no matter the consequences, because he gets results. Louis Edwards, CIA officer and head of the Blackest of the Black, brings Major Jim Harper back to duty to help track down and eliminate the terrorists. Jim, with the help of Sergeant Darby Hayes and Harvey Randall is hot on the trail of the man planting the bombs, Michael Rehazi, an American-educated Iranian who is know as The Terror of Tehran. Little does anyone know, but David intended to seek revenge for the way he was treated by the USSR government. He intends to strike back at the USSR by programming a secret way for all of the Samson devices to detonate.Read more ›
