After serving over 20 years in the Air Force, I made the ultimate job switch: to farmer and author. It was a drastic change, not to mention a drastic pay cut! I've been writing 25+ years and have been published in a variety of media: book, newspaper, photography, and magazine. I love to write, it seems to be a passion I can't ever seem to satisfy.
It started out with the first book of the Dragonslayers Saga. "Project: Dragonslayers" is an MWSA award winning novel about an unlikely Special Forces team who are thrown headlong into the world of counterterrorism. The second book, "Dragonslayers: Mind Games" continues the saga where the team enters the twisted world of al-Qaeda. They must find the source of a mystery explosive, or risk losing more innocent civilians to attacks. This book was selected for the MWSA summer 2011 reading list. The third book in the series is "Dragonslayers: Battle Rhythm." This time it's Yemen, and the team finds out they're not invincible. Two more books in this series are slated for release: "Kill Box" Released Dec 2013 and "Critical Mass" which will be released in the next year or so.
Also I've expanded my work in other genres. Out now is the best-selling contemporary romance, "Cowboys and Olympians." You'll fall in love with Leo Richards, a champion reining horse trainer, as he tries to convince himself that he can love again after his wife and unborn child were killed in a fiery car crash.
If supernatural thriller/ horror appeals to you, give "The Hall" a try. You'll meet Marcus Bishop, wealthy Memphis book publisher; his new and terrifically eccentric best friend, Prince Mongo; along with a ghost and demons that haunt the old castle Marcus buys.
After taking a dare from a horror author friend, I started work on the "Space" series. "Space Crazy" introduces you to Dar Meltom, a half breed alien who's had a rough time. He longs for a life in the stars, and as difficult as it is, his mother manages to help him achieve his goal. "Space Junk," the second book is also completed. The third book in the series, "Space Available," was released Aug 2013. The fourth book is "Space Invaded."
In 2012, I was given a rare distinction of placing 1st in Ron Knight's top 100 Facebook authors of 2012. He starts with 8,000 and narrows it down to 100. An honor indeed.
As always, I appreciate feedback and book reviews. I'm a small fish in a huge ocean just trying to stay afloat. I love my writing and pour heart and soul into each work I do.
