Hi Tony. If you like to read--my novel CROSSROADS is now available. It is an international action thriller (espionage/paranormal) based on several actual events. The novel is in the E-book format (Fictionwise, Ereader, etc) and it will be soon in Print too. It can be ordered through my website Several reviewers rated it as very good.
My next thriller, The Raven Affair, should be published in the Fall.
Thanks for your interest.
