The Monroe Decision   


Excited to announce that The Monroe Decision  made the short list for the Chanticleer 2017 Clue Award for thriller fiction.  

 Deep inside the United States Government lurks a covert agency, and one very talented and dangerous operative known to only a few members of the administration.  Aaron Monroe is the President’s precision-guided weapon seeking out terrorists and their sophisticated recruiting networks. But he’s been betrayed and has gone off the grid to learn what happened and to extract revenge on who has betrayed him — and no one is above suspicion

On this HOME page is some information about my debut novel and my latest project. On the page titled BOOKS you will find links to my other works; the By the Bay series of short story anthologies. And on the EVENTS page, I have listed author related events that I will participate in where signed copies of my books can be purchased. 


In addition to The Monroe Decision, I'm currently working on another thriller titled The Slow Dancer Affair.

The ice cover in the Arctic is disappearing at an alarming rate and the race is on for strategic dominance of the northern waterway and the vast natural resources that exist there. Russia is ahead in the dash and espionage reminiscent of the Cold War may be the only hope for America to keep the bear caged. A defector may hold the key but Russian security forces are aware of the plot. Cole Draper needs to develop and execute a flawless and infallible plan to extricate him before the defector is caught.


There is a link on the banner of this page to my blog where I will periodically post information related to my stories. Also, about midway on this page are links to my Amazon Author page and to the Barnes & Noble bookstore or the Books-A Million store where any of these books can be purchased. 

I hope that you enjoy reading my stories. Please consider writing a brief review on,, or on iBooks. Just a few lines to tell what you liked about the book will help inform other readers. Also, please feel free to send me your questions or comments by clicking on the CONTACT tab.  


That's it for now and thanks for looking in.
