Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a full time deputy sheriff, SWAT commander, and a former Marine. I’ve written 2 books, and the 2nd should be published soon.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Arklight: Operation Nightfall. It was spawned from my imagination as a Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy kinda of suspense action novel. It started to go a little deeper into Christianity and really developed into a faith-based book series. Book 2, Arklight: Force Interdiction is about to go into beta read mode.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes. I’m a little OCD – I’m a Marine, go figure. The two books I have written, were typed into a first draft in less than a month. It’s just like, BOOM, here’s the book. However, it takes months of rewriting to get it ready.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Tom Clancy, Richard Marcinko, and Dan Brown are three of my favorites.
What are you working on now?
Arklight: Task Force Crusader will be the third installment in this series. It’s been an exciting journey stringing together this story. Spies, Elite Soldiers, Arma Christi, infamous works of art, and great battlefields of the past are fun to work with.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My blog https://arklight.blog is where I talk all about the series, the art, characters, and more.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes, give me some advice, lol. It’s very hard to get started in this business. I’m glad I have a full time job!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t ever let fear control you. Overcome and adapt!
What are you reading now?
Mercy’s Firstborn Semester
What’s next for you as a writer?
I will hopefully finish up this 5 book series in the next 2-3 years. After that, I am working on a project based on my time with the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force. It will be a Crime Mystery Thriller and I hope to get it published traditionally.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The SAS Survival Guide, The PALEO diet, Ship Building And Design, and Fishing for Dummies. What can I say, I’m a realist.
