The Latest Review… 5 of 5 Stars
“For real. The military and tactical accuracy is worthy of the best military authors, and the pace of action and brilliantly structured tension would be enough to make this book a winner. But overlay a metaphysical mystery which will keep you guessing and Googling historical factoids (they all check out!). Non-Christians, don’t be deterred. While clearly written by a believing warrior (TYFYS), the story requires no basic piety to follow, and the conclusion will blow your mind regardless of your faith tradition, or lack thereof. Strongly recommended!”
You be the judge.

COMING IN APRIL – THE BOOK DESCRIPTION!
The ancient Order of the Knights Templar hid pieces of Arma Christi all over the Earth, staving off disaster in their time. The locations to these weapons of Christ were documented in a cryptic journal, which remained a closely guarded secret of the Order, until its owner met an untimely demise. In Operation Nightfall, Arklight’s Spear Team discovered the existence of this journal, and an epic mission unfolded, propelling a deadly event horizon. Powerful enemies have since emerged, intent upon bringing about the destruction of all things. In Force Interdiction, the fate of mankind hangs in the balance as Spear Team undertakes a mission to secure the next piece of Arma Christi, which leads to further discovery and understanding of the truth behind the Knights Templar legend.
Arklight and their predecessors, the Alsos Mission Team, fight in the ultimate battle across time, attempting to gain the advantage against the forces of evil. Paths collide when the history of their missions are shared, uncovering a multitude of secrets that span from the American Civil War, to World War II, and into the modern day. These ancient battlefields have forged a spectacular reality no one could have ever foreseen. A war of souls looms on the horizon; the showdown between good and evil explodes in this second installment of the Arklight series.

Arklight’s Mission Director
Meet the Chief. What makes Arklight special, in the sense of it’s military affiliations, is that the unit is comprised of the best and the brightest minds tier 1 units have to offer. Former Navy SEALs, like Boomer, USMC MARSOC, Army Delta Force, and USAF Pararescue comprise the bulk of Arklight’s operators. The Chief represents the mission coordination and planning unit, travelling the globe in advance of the operational teams. This career enlisted man served on a DevGrp squadron (ST-6) for many years, but age catches up to even the very best. Arklight offered him an opportunity, and he took it.
The Chief enjoys cigars, smoking them, and smoking them often. He’s rarely too far away from a zesty Cuban rolled bit of deliciousness. Few men still know him as Boomer, but his history dates back to the SEAL Teams with Captain John Steadman and Chappy. That past relationship certainly helped in the creation of Arklight, and John depends heavily upon the Chiefs detail-oriented contingency planning. Of course, at 58 years of age, the Chief might be the most prepared of all the operators. He has an uncanny ability to understand objectives, even beyond the mission.
Read Arklight: Operation Nightfall and look for Arklight: Force Interdiction COMING SOON!
In Nightfall, you learn that the Nazi spy, Dr. Clarke, was in pursuit of The Storm on the Sea of Galilee. After a very tense moment in Morocco, he fails to complete his quest, and Ian learns of the Knights Templar conspiracy. A few references are made later in Nightfall about the existence of this priceless work of art. In Interdiction, you will find out what happened to the painting, and better yet, why it was stolen.
The infamous history of this Rembrandt is scattered at best. In 1990, it was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and has never been located. The FBI has been investigating the theft for 28 years, and has yet to solve the crime. Maybe Arklight will be able to track it down, #whodunnit!
It’s almost ready! I am in the final rewrite before Book 2, Arklight: Force Interdiction, goes into beta read mode. I’m very excited to announce some very interesting characters, and some astounding connections, in this next release. Navy Lieutenant Anne Carter will have a much larger role to play in the series as she finally gets her chance. Tennessee natives and historical characters, Sarah Estell and Emaline Cameron, will also be included. If you’re interested in the setting, the two ladies mentioned above might give you a clue.
Interdiction promises to be a most visceral experience. The team returns only to face down their true foe, Magnus O’Keefe. More lost art, Arma Christi, Knights Templar secrets, and battles to save mankind await! I will be getting started on book 3 soon and it will bring everything full circle.
The story continues to grow!
