A Sea of Skulls (Arts of Dark and Light)

The 2017 Dragon Award Finalist for Best Fantasy Novel

In Selenoth, the war drums are beating throughout the land. The savage orcs of Hagahorn and Zoth Ommog are on the move, imperiling Man, Dwarf, and Elf alike. The Houses Martial of Amorr have gone to war with each other, pitting legion against legion, and family against family, as civil war wracks the disintegrating Empire. In the north, inhuman wolf-demons besiege the last redoubt of Man in the White Sea, while in Savondir, the royal house of de Mirid desperately prepares to defend the kingdom against an invading army that is larger than any it has ever faced before. And in the underground realm of the King of Iron Mountain, a strange new enemy has been attacking dwarf villages throughout the Underdeep.

Beneath the widespread violence that has seized all Selenoth in its grasp, a select few are beginning to recognize the appearance of a historic pattern of almost unimaginable proportions. Are all these conflicts involving Orc, Elf, Man, and Dwarf the natural result of inevitable rivalries, or are they little more than battlegrounds in an ancient war that began long before the dawn of time?

Epic fantasy at its deepest and most intense. A SEA OF SKULLS is Book II in the ARTS OF DARK AND LIGHT series that began with A THRONE OF BONES.

The Forgotten Women Heroes: Second World War Untold Stories: The Women Heroes in the Extraordinary World War Two

This is a short collection of untold stories about the women heroes in the extraordinary World War Two.

These women have been footnotes in history, and at least one of them was a model for women in James Bond books and movies. The women, however, have remained in the shadows of the stories of the Second World War. These women fade into history even though their actions were crucial in changing the outcome of the war.

This book is an effort to remember these forgotten women and remove the shrouds from the memory of these amazing and courageous women.

Welcome Home: A Story of the Vietnam War

Jack Frost's father fought in WWII. His brother fought in Korea. So when Jack's own draft card arrives, there's no doubt in their minds that he'll do his duty, and fight in Vietnam. Jack loves his family, but he also knows that killing another human being is something he can never do.

Welcome Home is the short story of one man's struggle to maintain his innocence amid the brutality of the Vietnam War, torn between his family's expectations, his loyalty to his brothers-in-arms, and his own moral code.

Interview with the Author

Q - What makes Welcome Home special?

A - As a former Army officer and student of military history, I know that the guys who got drafted for Vietnam got a really raw deal. Aside from being sent to fight a war they didn't volunteer for, when they returned home, they were shunned by the American public. I wanted to write a short story set during the Vietnam War that asked: what if there was a soldier who felt obligated to serve his country, but felt he couldn't kill another human being? How would he deal with that personal conflict?

Q - Why should readers give this book a try?

A - It's a short, fast read, and will appeal to all fans of military fiction, historical fiction, and literary stories about army veterans and the challenging situations we can and do experience.

Q - Have you written other books?

A - Yup! If you're into stories about the military, you should definitely check out Combat and Other Shenanigans, the NY Times-bestselling memoir of my year in Iraq as a tank and scout platoon leader. You can get it for free by signing up on my website.
