Les in New Mexico posted a review on Amazon about The Troubleshooter: “Entertaining action story. Well written action romp. In this story we get to know Hannibal Jones, a tough hero with a social conscience. He can "take a licking and keep on ticking". He's too good to be true, but interesting and entertaining. Overall, a good light read staged around some serious issues.…

I always enjoy having lunch with the Belvoir Officers Spouses Club, and last week was no exception. I did sign books there, but the turkey was the best part of that event.
The same group sponsored the Holiday Craft Boutique and Family Fun Fest Saturday. The George Mason field house was jammed with 150 vendors. I signed another bunch of books while enjoying the live music and performances. Another good time!
And I am featured in the video produced by Book Case TV from interviews…Continue

Daniel Munroe posted this review of The Troubleshooter on Amazon: “Loved it. I'll admit I didn't think much of the first couple of pages.

I also very much liked…Continue

I got to talk to a lot of readers, and people with friends who like to read. I also chatted with a librarian who needs writers to speak at her library, a couple people who remembered me from last year and several who said they would download me onto their Kindle…Continue
