Good day,

It’s been a while since I wrote about anything other than my five already published ebooks. As I wanted to try something new to challenge myself as a writer, I decided to write a story set in WW2 in which things definitely go bump in the night. As horror/science fiction writing is new to me, I am truly enjoying crafting this new novel. Tentatively entitled INCURSION, I am about one-third of the way through the book and hope to have it finished by the end of the year. Well its back to work for me as it won’t write itself.

All the best,

Both exciting historical adventure novels novels are once again available from Amazon and Smashwords:

The Last Eagle - AMAZON

The Devil's Path - AMAZON

The Last Eagle - Smashwords

The Devil's Path - Smashwords


A Forgotten Secret.
A Lethal Enemy.
A Deadly Race against the Odds.

When a Russian prince is murdered in England, former soldier Christopher Sheppard is pulled into a lethal game of cat and mouse. He soon finds himself pitted against deadly and ruthless Soviet agents who are determined to uncover the truth about the most guarded secret of the last Czar of Russia. Sheppard struggles to remain one-step ahead of people who still fighting their own private war.

From England, to France, from Turkey to the vast open steppes of Mongolia, aided by a small group of Russian patriots, Christopher Sheppard races to rescue someone from the clutches of a cruel and sadistic warlord before it is too late.

Take a step back in time to the late 1920s, a time of change…a time when merciless men sought to change the world.

Thanks for your understanding.

Reviews for The Last Eagle.

Several reviews for my Historical Adventure novel The Last Eagle have come in and I couldn't be more pleased:

From William Scott:

I discovered this book in one of the Goodreads discussion groups and decided to give it a try. Billed as an action adventure, this book really delivers the goods. From the first chapter to the last, I was pulled into a flurry of activity that made putting the book down nearly impossible.
I enjoyed the fact that it used traditional aspects of the genre without feeling stale or obvious. The main character is your classic hero thrust into adventure and intrigue, with his trusty aid by his side. They are set upon by enemy agents as they cross Europe, eventually facing a deadly adversary. The use of the Russian Revolution as a backdrop was a welcome change from the standard and I really found myself emerged in the era.
I really enjoyed this self-published book and plan on reading further works by the author.

From R. Brune:

I found this book through the GoodKindle site, read the free excerpt available on Amazon, and decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did, although not without some reservations (which I'll discuss below.) BLUF: The Last Eagle is an adventure novel in the style of Clive Cussler or Ted Bell (two of my favorite writers). The author has a great story going, with interesting characters, and has obviously done his research. Overall, I recommend it.

So what was good? As mentioned before--the characters. The main character, Christopher Sheppard, enters the plot through the time-honored genre convention of being the unexpected last choice to go on a dangerous mission. With him goes his driver (and former wartime subordinate), Harry Campbell. Sheppard has grown up with the sort of Continental upbringing that all good 20th-century adventurers should have, and he takes to the mission like a natural, although not without many (realistically portrayed) reservations. Along the way, he meets people who help him, who hinder him, and still he prevails. The plot moves fast and furiously, and the reader can't help but be swept up in the ride. There are enough predictable turns to satisfy genre conventions, and enough unpredictable twists to satisfy readers who read a lot of adventure stories (such as this reader!) I don't want to give too much away, but suffice it to say, the book caught and held my attention to the very end.

Getting constructive and carefully thought out criticism is a useful tool for anyone involved in writing or any other profession for that matter, but a malicious and barely intelligible attack by an anonymous poster with 17 pages of almost the same diatribe is just quite sad. Not everyone is going to be a fan of your work, but a deliberate attempt to sabotage a person's sales from the safety of their computer and doing anonymously borders on cowardice. I hope other writers here are able to avoid such foolishness. 

I would also like to know how you dealt with these people if you have had the misfortune to run across them.
