Both of my books are fictional novels about a team of Green Berets jumping into
just after 9-11.“The Night Eagles
Soared” released on October 5th 2010 and in it, the team is
preparing to conduct a Military Free Fall Parachute Operation. During the flight the Team Sergeant begins to
reflect how he came to be in that position, at that incredible moment in
history. He tells the story as it goes
back in time revealing the evolution of a Special Forces soldier through the
night I compare to the Doolittle Raid of WWII.
That is, “The Night Eagles Soared” just after 9-11.
In the first book the team is there, although; I never introduced them. “Burnt Yellow and Red” takes the reader on the complete mission profile through the “
for Kabul”. The team is introduced as the story unfolds
from the perspective of the Air Force Tactical Air Controller who is
attached. He must earn the men’s respect
as he struggles to find his place and in the end, he becomes a true member of
the Special Forces Brotherhood.
As a writer, it is my goal to capture the heart and soul of our warriors. I do this by writing from the perspective of a soldier, gained through years of experience. I do not write from a journalistic perspective, but rather from the heart and that is why my stories ring so powerfully true. My work has been endorsed by the Green Beret Foundation, Professional Soldiers.com, the Special Forces Book Store.com and the SF Museum on
. I have been traveling across the country for the last four months visiting the Exchange on each installation as I go. It is my honor to bring these books to the
military audience at the Exchange and I hope you will enjoy reading the
stories as much as I did writing them. Fort Bragg, North Carolina
“We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

God bless you, our warriors, and their families!
