Do you like good storytelling? Action? Suspense? Thrillers that thrill? Do you find yourself drawn to flicks like Hunt for Red October, Jurassic Park, Sherlock Holmes, The Bourne Identity, and Taken? Or TV shows like 24 and The Blacklist?
Do you like adventure? Heroes you can cheer on? All the while, experiencing the truth woven into a story that leaves you pondering things long after the last page is turned? When the credits scroll? When the advertisement for the next show appears?
That's what I hope for when I crack open up a book, plop down in a theater seat with my popcorn in hand, or turn on the "telly."
And that's what I attempt to do when I write.
I like to see the story unfold, picture it in what I like to call "the movie screen of my mind." Write it as if someone could easily transform it to the "big screen." That's what good novels do, right? Suspense thrillers should draw you in, grab you by the proverbial throat, and never let go until the book is closed.
My books, The Serpent's Grasp, 30 Days Hath Revenge - A Blake Meyer Thriller (Book 1), and Triple Time - A Blake Meyer Thriller (Book 2) are just the beginning of that process for me.
The Serpent's Grasp is a scientific suspense thriller Michael Crichton fans would enjoy. It repeatedly gets its themes and premise validated in the news. The tab at the top of the page titled, "In the News" proves it.
Thirty Days Hath Revenge is the first book in an international suspense thriller series and is being likened to the writings of Ken Follett, Clive Cussler, Frederick Forsythe, and Joel Rosenberg. That's not me saying those things. That's reader feedback. One reviewer stated, "30 Days Hath Revenge is the most realistic thriller I've ever read." Triple Time continues the story of SSA Blake Meyer as the series develops into six books which feel a great deal like a season of 24 with a Christian twist. The third book, The Tide of Times, is now available.
Oh, and did I mention the awards? Apparently, some folks in "the biz" believe my writing has merit as well. So, with proof to back it up, I can honestly say the writing is good, and I'm not delusional. The first edition of The Serpent's Grasp won the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference 2013 Selah Award for Fiction-First Novel. It also was a finalist in Foreword Reviews' 2012 Book of the Year in the Science Fiction category. The first edition of 30 Days Hath Revenge was also a Silver Medalist in the Readers' Favorite 2013 Book of the Year Awards in the Christian Fiction category.
Feel free to browse, and stay tuned for updates! If you'd like, please scroll down to the bottom of this page and submit your name and email address so we can send you those updates. And don't worry. I won't be selling them to anyone. I hate it when that happens to me, too. Nor will I bludgeon you with email blast after email blast. I only send out updates when I have specific release date news for a new book coming out, want to pass along a book signing or other relevant event you may be interested in, or if I receive wonderful (and I mean wonderful) news revolving around my books, like "it's being made into a movie," or "I won a Pulitzer" (A guy's gotta dream, right?).
Oh, and one more thing...there is some great info about an organization I am supporting called World Hope International. They specialize, amongst other things, in helping human trafficking victims in several high-impact areas around the world. You'll see the banner and info at the bottom of the Blake Meyer Series pages. HT became a prayerful thing for me after researching for this series. Giving back to help those affected by the crimes of HT is the least I can do. We hope to do more in the future.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you! May God bless you and yours, and may you bless God along the way.
