I read and write a wide variety of fiction, although it is difficult not to include some elements of suspense in everything I write. I have just finished ‘Gone in a Minute,’ a suspense novel, and the second book in the Sheriff Daniel Barrett series. In case you haven’t read the first novel, ‘Innocent,’ Barrett is an ex-special forces soldier who has returned to his hometown after he leaves the military. Barrett is a happily married man who believes in a strict enforcement of the law, but who knows that the law must sometimes be bent in order to achieve the kind of justice we can all live with. Barrett is one of the good guys, the kind of person you would like for a neighbor, and the kind of man you would definitely go to if you were in trouble. If you like suspenseful action, you are going to love this series, and you are going to want to see more of Daniel Barrett. I hope you enjoy reading these books. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009YIZVL2

I write the kind of books I like to read, and The Antaeus Factor is no exception. When I started to research this book, I was aware of the danger our country faces from those who are determined to do damage. Some of this danger comes from hostile regimes around the world, but there is a surprising amount of it that comes from the lone predator with real or imagined grievances against those who have a different religion or ideology. The really surprising discovery was the shocking amount of ill will from people who direct their hate toward some victim for no perceptible reason. They are all around us in society, from the teen who feels rage because he was turned down for a date and strikes back on a social network, to the neighbor who is determined to get even with someone who has slighted or scorned him or her in some manner. There is road rage, bullying on a school campus, to unbelievable acts of outrage.
