Agnew, a small farming community in south-central Texas, has just been obliterated in the nation’s worst rail accident in history. The President of the United States enlists cybersecurity expert, Mike Paxton, to lead the investigation and determine who is to blame.

As Mike seeks to uncover the truth behind the attack, more weapons of mass destruction are unleashed across the country in what appears to be an attempt to eradicate western society. Those who survive are forced into a near-apocalyptic existence: transportation, manufacturing, agricultural, and oil industries crumble, and economic collapse devastates America.

With time and resources running out, Mike must discover the cruel forces at play. Are these violent attacks merely a ploy to preoccupy the American government so a larger, global plan can be carried out without the threat of intervention by America’s powerful military defense? Will Mike and his team be able to stop them before it’s too late? Or will the United States lose all hope of maintaining its status as the most powerful country in the world?


What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Going from lots of ideas, information, and verbiage to just what you need. Making sure that every word, every sentence, every paragraph moves the story forward.

What songs are most played on your iPod?

Do I like to listen to music while I write? No. I am frequently off in my own little world. Sometimes I write it six or seven times before I type it.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

Yes, a small, diverse writing group, and a couple of beta readers.

What book are you reading now?

I’m reading the Book of Job in the Bible. The parallels between that ancient book and our current world are amazing.

How did you start your writing career?

I didn’t want to be a writer as much as I wanted to tell a story. I got the idea as I thought about 9/11 and how a small cadre of educated, well-financed, religious fanatics murdered nearly three thousand people and changed our lives forever. They attacked the core of our national culture: the World Trade Center-our financial system and our leadership position in the global economy, the Pentagon-seat of the most highly trained and well-equipped armed forces in the world and, had it not been for a small team of brave civilians willing to sacrifice themselves, the seat of our national government in Washington, D.C. 

In a nutshell, 9/11 represents guerilla warfare taken to the extreme. Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda became embedded in our collective memories. They demonstrated how a minor assailant could engage and sustain a world power in long-term conflict on their terms. 


Still, large sections of our country were not directly impacted. What would happen if they were?


Tell us about your next release.

I’m torn between following this story in time and developing the prequel –Star Wars like. So much happens every day moving forward in how countries interact, sabotage, and attack each other for Mike to work on next. But, an appreciation of the forces that drove the founders of the money exchange systems that provided the accumulation of funds necessary for the attack on America and its aftermath would reveal lots of motives and address whether motives can transfer down generations like hatred can.
