Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. It’s late 2016 and lots of things are happening.
Donald Trump is the man of the moment, ISIS is on the run, and the Dallas Cowboys are having a great year. Who would have thought?
And…I should soon have some new titles on the shelves.
It’s been a few years without a new release (four years to build a company and two years to write a couple of new books), which is a very hard thing for an author. Now, it’s finally time to get these new books to market.
First on the agenda – find the right agent for Minimum Wage and The Reluctant Truth. Both these books are a bit of a departure from my previous writing.
Minimum Wage is about Nick, a Houston lawyer who gets cut out of his wealthy uncle’s will and has to work at minimum wage for a year if he wants a chance at the inheritance. The story has nothing to do with the money, and everything to do with Nick learning that all people have value.
The Reluctant Truth is more of a thriller and very close to my heart. In it, a 94 year-old WWII veteran finally opens up to his distant son with some of his war stories. The son realizes that he never knew his dad. It’s a theme that resonates throughout the book – that sometimes the people closest to us can be the most wonderful strangers.
My dad was a WWII vet, and it wasn’t until late in his life that he began sharing his stories.
So, there should be at least one new release in 2017. I hope everyone who enjoyed the thrillers I published through Dorchester will forgive me for the long absence and come back for a new adventure. Or two.
Until then, all the best.
