A Deacon Ross Thriller
Coming Fall 2021!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Writing is equally fulfilling and terrifying. It allows one to create a world as they want it, yet it exposes them to the real world he or she can't control. The writing process has fired within me a creative passion I didn't know existed.
I started writing my first novel, CHARIOT, in 2019 when my obsession with thrillers began to go unsatisfied. I just couldn't connect with what I was reading. I liked a little of this plot, and a little of that protagonist. I wanted Author A's style, with Author B's substance. Instead of perpetually whining about it, I acted, and the outcome was totally unexpected. I enjoy writing far more than I ever enjoyed reading. Weird.
I'm a mechanical engineer by education, and a business investor and advisor by practice. I live in southwest Missouri with my wife of 20+ years and four children. Like many writers in this genre, I've written a little of myself into my protagonist, Deacon Ross. We're both fans of history, archeology and truth. We're serious guys, but always up for a little sarcasm. We adore the outdoors, and relish any opportunity to spend time there.
I hope you enjoy Deacon's world, and see a little of yourself there too.

intel & insights
Hidden and buried in the New Mexico mountains, the elusive, real-life Fenn Treasure has been found. Forrest Fenn, a wealthy antiquities collector, buried the treasure in 2010, and published a poem with hidden clues to the treasure's location. The individual who discovered the treasure won't reveal any details, and neither will Fenn. Was the whole thing a hoax? Was there ever even a treasure? For the sake of a little mystery in the world, I choose to believe.
