Welcome to my world, which I share with my wife, Cool Gus and Scout, our new rescue dog. I grew up in the Bronx, graduated West Point, served in Special Operations and have written over 70 books across a variety of genres.
I’ve written a lot of books. Need help figuring out where to start or what to read next? Download my free readers guide from your favorite platform. Click on cover to the right to get links.
My latest works are continuations of the 3 million copy selling Area 51 series. I have a new series that’s actually a prequel to my bestselling Green Beret series. The Will Kane books are set in New York City in the last 1970s. The series begins with New York Minute, followed by Walk on the Wild Side, Hell of a Town and No Quarter.
Also, check out my Freebies page where you can get started on a variety of genres. There are also free audio stories.
There are over 225 free Powerpoint presentations on the free Slideshows page– lots of useful stuff on writing, survival tips, history, etc.
I consult and present workshops on personalized Area Studies for individuals, neighborhoods, organizations and businesses. With everyone facing climate related incidents and growing unrest, this is more important than ever. Click on the window to the right for more information.
The Fifth Will Kane, Green Beret Book
Will Kane has faced down the NVA, the IRA, the CIA and the Mafia.
But now he faces the most intense challenge of his life.
Someone is trafficking children in New York City.
Someone who has connections to very powerful people who want this kept very secret.
Kane’s investigation is getting too close.
But he can’t back off; not when children are involved.
And there will be no quarter taken or given.
“Fans of Jack Reacher, look no further. By the author with Jack Reacher’s background, Will Kane rings with authenticity.”
Walking side-by-side with death
The devil mocks their every step, ooh
The snow drives back the foot that’s slow
The dogs of doom are howling more
