Arklight – Book 1

I wanted to announce that Arklight:Operation Nightfall will be coming out very soon!  This cross genre book incorporates some very interesting concepts.  The historical fiction elements and historical figures used in this fiction novel closely mirror reality.  Another interesting concept surrounds Christianity itself and the fact that God exists independent of time and space.

The concept for this book came from the history of modern warfare, and answered a question.  What would happen if the most modern special operations warriors in the U.S. arsenal engaged the Nazi war-machine?  How does that play out, and if it did, how would history be impacted?

There will be much more to come, including a complete walk through of book 1 and updates throughout this project!  Book 2 is already being written and this series continues to grow.

Historical Characters

Ian Fleming stands front and center in this story.  The cheeky Brit served as a Commander for British Intelligence during World War II and went on to have a very successful writing career.  Commander Fleming served in Gibraltar during the timeframe this novel takes place creating a plausible narrative for this fiction novel.  Maybe he wrote great spy fiction, because he actually lived it?

Ensign John Bell is recognized as one of the very first Navy SEALs.  Bell was attached as the XO of the Navy’s First Special Warfare Commandos.  They helped clear the beaches during Operation Torch creating legends along the way.

These two men lived real and honorable lives.  The fictional accounts are created to honor their memories and create more realism for the story.
