Meet me Saturday in VA

My next book signing is Saturday at the Borders Express in Fair Oaks Mall. This store, in an upscale mall, has been very good to me in the past, and I expect it to be again. Stop by and see what I mean between noon and 4pm. You can map to the mall at 11713 Lee Jackson Hwy, Fairfax VA.

Spell Check

Writers place a great deal of confidence in many research sources but in odd moments I wonder if those references are really perfect. For example, if a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

Author Update

It would be hard to exaggerate how much fun I had at Thrillerfest. I had a chance to chat with just about every author I really admire. I sat on a very successful panel and talked about the future of military thrillers. I was part of a massive book signing. I shot a video promoting my next novel, due out in October. The cocktail party was fun but the awards banquet was even better! It was the ultimate literary party with about 800 of my closest friends. Plus, I may have made a connection that… Continue

Another Cool Review

I met Dennis LaRaja at Borders Express in Dulles Center a few months ago.  He bought The Troubleshooter and Russian Roulette.  Later he wrote to tell me he enjoyed both and regretted not picking up my other titles when he was there.  He visited me at a later book signing at the same store and

completed his collection of my novels, telling me that he really loved my characters.  For his support I have made Dennis' comments the featured review on my web site.…

Author Update

My book signing at Borders Express in Montgomery Mall was not all it could be. It seems that very few people want to be in the Mall on the day before the 4th of July, but I had fun nonetheless with those people who did stop by.


Also, my review of Threat Warning is in the latest issue of The Big Thrill, the newsletter of the International Thriller…

Happy Independence Day

Although Woodrow Wilson said the American Revolution was a beginning, not a consummation, my favorite quote for this holiday is from Erma Bombeck.  She said that you have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it… Continue

Another Cool Review

I've mentioned Dawn Thomas before - we met on the Kindle Korner Yahoo group.  Reading through my novels, Dawn said that she particularly enjoyed The Troubleshooter because she is a long time Washington D.C. resident, and her father was a policeman there in the 1970s.  Because Dawn give my novel a strong recommendation I've posted her comments as this week's featured review on my web site.
