Hey there!!

I can not believe that summer is almost over. Labor Day weekend is this weekend marking the unofficial end of summer. I hope you get to relax, read a good book or enjoy the sales out there. I will be working on my novel. I have a ton of research to do, and will be working on that.

Here are some fun facts about September.

September 6th is Read a Book Day. What a great thing to celebrate and you can read an excerpt of my book Countdown America.

On September 15, 1890, British mystery author Agatha Christie was born in Torquay, England.

September 17 – October 3 is Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is celebrated throughout September. It is the world’s largest beer festival whose cultural charm took the world by storm. I love to celebrate by hitting a German Pub in Manhattan, order some authentic food, and of course have some beer.

Finally Thriller Fest XVIII registration is open. What a great experience.


Next month, I am going to have an announcement, so stay tuned, and I’ll be back with another character background.

The Broken Protocol ConspiracyWhat makes a nation believe a lie?

That’s the question Jay Nichols has been trying to answer since he first experienced widespread mass hysteria as a child. A question that started when Orson Welles put millions across America into a panic in less than an hour.

Now, his Ph.D. work is attracting the attention of world powers, secret societies, and dark organizations. Only they don’t care if he can answer the question. They just want him to build a weapon.

After Nichols refuses all the recruiters, a stranger shows up at his apartment with a warning. As the student’s life becomes ever stranger and more dangerous, Nichols is dragged into the world of secrets, lies, and espionage. Unsure of whom to trust, the final question he has to ask himself is what kind of person he wants to be, while the spies around him try to ensure he picks their side.
