About the Books:

Secret Deceit is a pulsating thriller about a coup to assassinate President David Edwards whose aggressive legislative agenda, backed by broad popular support, poses an ominous threat to the corporate greed of a major American industry. Secret Service agent Anthony Russo, a Special Forces veteran assigned to the President’s protection detail, unknowingly puts his life in jeopardy when his own investigation into the President’s death implicates a corrupt U.S. Senator and other White House officials in a twisted, devious plot to preserve billions of dollars in unfettered greed.

Fractured Power is a dark and haunting psychological thriller about Aiden Fletcher; a young man who came from humble origins and uses his extraordinary ambition and devious ingenuity to fulfill his inevitable destiny and reach the pinnacle of power in Washington, DC. As a newly elected District Attorney whose office investigates a rash of murders in Knoxville, Tennessee, he uses his position to manipulate the evidence while pursuing a serial killer whose arrest and trial puts Fletcher in the public limelight and forever changes the trajectory of his extraordinarily treacherous life.

Prior Restraint is about terrorism and the media and begins when America’s most famous TV news anchor is brutally murdered in the streets of Washington DC… seemingly by terrorists. Overnight the entire media establishment goes into a panic. Just a few days later in New York, a  leading newspaper columnist and her editor are also murdered and the media becomes paralyzed by the fear of who may be next. Seemingly overnight, a wave of self-censorship grips the airwaves and no one dares to criticize religious fanaticism. Behind the scenes, a corrupt US Senator who chairs the Senate Committee on Homeland Security who is intoxicated by ambition and greed, exploits the ensuing chaos while a tenacious young reporter risks her career and ultimately her life to uncover the truth.
