When will your second book be available?
RELOAD is second in the RED OPS series and will be available August 29, 2017.
What are you working on now?
I’ve finished the third book in the Red Ops series and have it sitting on my shelf. It is always best to let a book sit for a couple months before sending off to your agent and publisher. It provides a fresh perspective and enables you to catch issues you might have overlooked previously.
However, what I am working on right this second is a departure from military black ops thrillers. It is still a thriller/action-adventure novel for certain, but I’ll label it a Nordic paranormal thriller. It’s a plot that my daughter and I made up several years ago just for fun, as part of a creative writing class she was taking. However, I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. It’s as if I have to write this thing.
How much of your writing draws from personal military experience?
On some levels, I wish I could tell you my writing is deeply inspired by my military background. Though immensely rewarding, my service history would put most readers to sleep. Kind of like watching a little league baseball game that doesn’t include your kids. It provided me a well-prepped, gessoed canvas onto which I now joyfully smear all colors of fiction.
