A 1990 deployment to Iraq, in the build-up to the first Gulf War turns deadly.

Sergeant James Regan wants nothing more than to be at home with his family. After nearly two decades of putting his life on the line fighting for Queen and country, he has decided it’s time to quit the Royal Marines, he just has to make it home.

Corporal Roger Morgan hates life in the corps and uses alcohol to take the edge off. A downed coalition aircraft brings the two men together while behind enemy lines on a mission to track and destroy Iraqi SCUD missile launchers.

Old rivalry surfaces amid the danger, tension and stress of life behind enemy lines. Was it passion, jealousy or fear that turned a Royal Marine into a calculating, cold-blooded murderer?

The Russian Mafia picked the wrong girl to abduct. Now Paddy is hunting on British soil, and they are his prey.

The dark forces of the Russian Mafia have launched an assault on the underworld of British society, and the very people tasked with the protection of British Isles, are colluding with the Mafia’s hostile intent.

Used to fighting to keep his country safe, Royal Marines Sergeant Patrick (Paddy) Regan, realises there is a war being fought in Great Britain. This brutal conflict is being waged between the Russian Mafia and Britain’s organised crime. The rot caused by the Russian Mob’s toxic regimen of bribery, intimidation, and violence has reached the very top of Mi5, the British secret service.

What Paddy wants most is to find and rescue his young half-sister, Susie. He knows the Russian Mob abducted her and he’s getting zero help from the authorities. He deserts from the Royal Marines, determined to track her down and kill those responsible for taking her. Calling on skills honed in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, he infiltrates their organisation and begins its destruction from within.

Book #3 The Namibian Offensive

A wounded sniper. A mission for revenge. But does he have the skill to take down his most dangerous enemy?

Leicester, UK. Royal Marine deserter Paddy Regan swears vengeance against the Russian Mafia.

So when the gangsters attempt to rob and kill innocents at an amusement arcade, he seizes the chance to execute every last one…

But with news of his estranged fiancée’s kidnapping by Namibian rebels, Regan and his team must shift their sights on her rescue by infiltrating a terrorist base. As the onslaught of bloody violence in sex trafficking, blackmail and murder escalates, Regan’s forced to deploy his heavy weaponry to end the enemy’s brutal exploits.

Will Regan and his team perish in a hail of bullets before he can claim another Russian scalp?

He left school at the age of 15 and worked as a cook, waiter, plate collector and washer-up in his parents transport cafe before joining the Royal Navy in 1973. As an Aircraft Handler/Crash-Rescue Fireman he served on Great Britain’s last true fixed wing aircraft carrier, HMS Ark Royal before she was scrapped in 1978. Yes he hears the cries of derision from serving and former members of the Fleet Air Arm who served in big ships since the “Big A” was scrapped, but even the Royal Navy called them through-deck cruisers and they didn’t have catapults to launch them, nor aircraft landing at 250 knots.

Since leaving the Royal Navy he has worked as a long distance class 1HGV driver, drayman, fettler and mechanical engineer. He worked on contract in Libya and in 1995 became a Bachelor of Science after graduating with a 2:1 honours degree from Bournemouth University. A motorcycle accident in 2000 left him with serious injuries, finished his engineering career and almost his life.

Can you, for those who don’t know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

A big hello to everyone who doesn’t know me! Which is probably most of you. I must have been somewhere around sixteen or seventeen when I decided that I wanted to get my stories published. I did my research and learned the difference between finding an agent to bring your story to big publishers, self-publishing, and independent publishing companies. I didn’t want to self-publish because that seemed too large a task. I’ve tried to find an agent a few times and was unsuccessful. Finally, I decided that putting my stories out into the world was more important to me than getting in with the big publishing houses. It’s hard to remember everything exactly, but I think I was twenty years old when I had my first novella published.

What are you passionate about these days?

I think I’m passionate about the same things I always have been: movies, writing, and my family.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I watch TV and order take-out! For me, there’s nothing more relaxing than that.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’ve been writing ever since I could hold a pen, or so I’ve been told. I considered myself a writer when I was somewhere around twelve or thirteen, and I started to take writing seriously when I was sixteen.

Do you have a favorite movie?

Honestly, I love movies too much to have a favorite. I’ll say that right now it’s a tie between The King (2019) and Little Women (2019).

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

I picture all of them as movies when I’m writing them, but the book that I think would the best fit for a movie is Remember My Name.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

A Unicorn! I have always loved Unicorns. I’ve been fascinated by them since I was a child. The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle fueled my love for them.

What can we expect from you in the future?

I’m working on a Fantasy novella series called a True Knight. Watch out for that one later this year! It’s a project I’ve wanted to work on since I was a teenager, but it never came together. Until now!

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?

I do have a few stories/scenes that didn’t make it into the book. I didn’t think they were important to the overall story, but it’s an expansion of Shane’s childhood and memories.

Where did you come up with the names in the story?

For every story, I do a Google search for names until I find ones that I like, first and last names included. They have to “feel” right to me.

What did you enjoy most about writing Remember My Name?

I enjoyed the challenge. I had never written a character like Shane before, someone who, let’s face it, can be quite prickly! That, combined with his secrets, his stubbornness to keep them, and his inability to open up to anyone…I really had my hands full!

Who designed your book cover?

Melissa Stevens at The Illustrated Author Design Services. Her work is beautiful!

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

Oh, that’s such a tough question. There are always things I want to go back and change, but I have to accept that I did the best I could at the time!

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

I’ve always pictured Timothée Chalamet as Shane Coulter. In fact, the book is dedicated to him for that very reason!

Anything specific you want to tell your readers?

Thank you for reading my work. Your support means more to me than you will ever know.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

They are all from my imagination. I do try to bring a sense of realism into my stories. Some elements may have been inspired by real life events or several different films, but what originally inspires me or sparks an idea tends to become unrecognizable when it’s implemented into my work.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?

They absolutely hijack the story. I couldn’t get Shane to listen to me if I tried! The characters have full control, I’m just the vessel.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

Yes, I have several unpublished works. I’m not sure if I will ever get them published. There are some stories that simply take priority over others. And, truthfully, sometimes I forget that I have finished stories sitting in my documents!

What did you edit out of this book?

I specifically remember removing a scene between Shane and his father. There are flashbacks in the book that are in chronological order being from Shane’s childhood to his adulthood, but at the end of the book, I had a flashback where Shane was back to being a child. It just didn’t fit. I didn’t want to mess up the nice, neat, chronological order I’d worked so hard on!

Fun Facts/Behind the Scenes/Did You Know?’-type tidbits about the author, the book or the writing process of the book.

Shane was originally a character I created within a roleplaying community of writers. The more his story was revealed to me, the more he intrigued me, and I just had to write a book about him…which has now turned into a series!

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

My main character always comes to me before I write a single word. There are supporting characters and relationships that I learn about as I go along.

What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?

It depends on the book. Sometimes I have to research symptoms and outlooks for medical conditions. For Shane, I had to figure out his specific heart condition, find the best and worst cases, how long someone with his diagnosis is expected to live, etc. It’s difficult to keep track of everything, so I try to take notes and bookmark my sources to go back to when I need a refresher!

Do you see writing as a career?

I would love to write as a career. Writing is my passion and I can’t imagine not doing it, so I’d be happy to write for the rest of my life.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

I think it depends on what scene I’m writing. If it’s an emotional or dramatic scene, I have to play music to set the mood and get into the zone. If nothing particularly complicated is happening, sometimes I write in silence.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

I usually have multiple. They don’t all get finished, mind you. On average, I write two books at a time and go back and forth depending on which story I feel most inspired for.

Pen or type writer or computer?

Computer for speed and efficiency. Pen for emergencies, such as when I’m out and about without a computer.

What are you currently reading?

Bones and All by Camille DeAngelis.

What is your writing process? For instance, do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

I absolutely have to write an outline at least a few chapters in advance. I usually flesh it out as I go, but if I don’t have something to follow and a plan for what to do next, I get lost.

What is your writing Kryptonite?

My inability to focus! If I was able to focus for more than one or two hours at a time, I think I would get so much more work done. Even during those one to two hours, I take breaks in between. Finding quiet time to match up with my ability to concentrate is so challenging!

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

Oh, heck if I know what readers want. I go wherever the story takes me, whether I like it or not! As long as the story feels “right” and I’m staying true to the characters and their story, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Including myself.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?

Depending on the length of the story and the complications of the plot, it could take me anywhere from 3 months to 5 years to complete a story. There’s been a story or two where I have taken years away from writing it, and then come back and finish it.

Do you believe in writer’s block?

Oh, yes. Seems like I have it constantly. Recently, I’ve heard it referred to as writer’s doubt. And because I constantly struggle with writing, and whether or not I can convince myself that it’s any good, I would say I have a mix of both.

The Girl Who Was Forgotten (The Shee McQueen Series Book 2) by Amy Vasant

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

“If thrills, twists, turns, suspense, fast-paced books, and humor are your cup of tea, this series is for you!”

Action-adventure from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amy Vansant – a novel packed with thrills, fun, romance and heartfelt family intrigue.

Life was supposed to start feeling like a permanent vacation.

After years on the run from a vengeful killer, Shee McQueen is home at her father’s beach hotel. The Loggerhead Inn doubles as a retreat for sunburned tourists and a haven for recovering ex-military — men and women who help right wrongs for people in need of their particular skills.

What could be more relaxing?

Unless…

…Shee’s estranged boyfriend — the only man she’s ever loved — has discovered her darkest secret and the reason she left him so many years ago…

…or her first job for her father has ended in a double homicide…

…or that her very presence is driving the hotel’s regulars to prove their worth by starting dangerous covert missions of their own…

Wait. It couldn’t be a botched kidnapping is started looking more like the work of a deranged serial killer?

Hm.

Maybe hold the tanning lotion.

This might take a minute.

The Girl Who Was Forgotten is the second explosive mystery-thriller in the Shee McQueen series, but can be read as a standalone. While the book has all the pulse-pounding action of a thriller, language, romance and violence is rated PG.

The unique female lead’s funny, irreverent and all-too-human asides will have you rooting for her — and her whole pack of wild, wonderful misfit friends — until the breathless end.

Fans of Harlan Coban, Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, Sue Grafton, Kathy Reichs and Janet Evanovich will love this exhilarating page-turner.

Also on hand are her two brothers, wily Marsh and ne’er-do-well Trainor. With a forty-billion-dollar inheritance at stake, they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make the old man happy.

To their shock they learn that what their father wants for his birthday is to kill someone. He doesn’t care who it is. He just wants to know what it’s like to commit murder.

Black Willows is the sequel to White Oaks, the first in the Trapnell Thriller series. When I wrote the conclusion to White Oaks, the story of the free-wheeling Trapnell family, lords of the manor of the small town of Cobbs, Georgia, I didn’t intend to write a sequel. However, I started to miss the family whose bizarre adventures it chronicled. The Trapnell siblings – glamorous, self-indulgent Aimee; lazy, good-natured Trainor; troubled Benjamin and clever Marsh – kept calling to me, demanding that I continue documenting their journey. Black Willows picks up where White Oaks left off, with the siblings richer than ever and presented with new challenges to overcome. It’s a funny, frivolous, wild ride, part farce, part thriller.

What kind of world ruler would you be?

Oooh, great question. What kind of world ruler would I be? I like to believe I would be a gracious, magnanimous ruler but my kids would tell you I’m more like a benevolent dictator. I believe people should have free will and be able to make their own decisions. However, I also believe that all actions have consequences. My dad used to say we could do whatever we wanted when we visited him, no matter what it was. He followed that proclamation with the statement that we also had to accept the consequences of our actions… no matter what.

What are you passionate about these days?

So many things…autism research, cancer research, family. Our youngest grandson is on the spectrum. I never realized what was meant by a spectrum disorder until I experienced first-hand. Autism is such an all-encompassing diagnosis. No two people with autism are the same.

Darlin’ and I were hit with hard news on November 5th this year. Good ole 2020, right? He was diagnosed with a very rare, very aggressive form of bladder cancer. So rare that only one to nine people out of a million have it and there is no standardized treatment for it. We’ve gone from celebrating his winning his election to being plunged into an overwhelming world of curious doctors, round after round of chemotherapy and radiation. But it’s okay. We have faith and I firmly believe in miracles.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

Play with the Grands, read, physically make things, walk the beach with Darlin’, drive fast, and mow the lawn with a push mower.

How to find time to write as a parent?

I’m an empty nester now but when the kids were young, I would carve out time to write when they were sleeping or on my lunch hour from work. As they grew up and became active in sports and other school activities, I learned I could write while sitting in my vehicle waiting for the bus to bring them back from wherever they went. Track meets were the best. My daughter and son both ran the mile and the two mile. Any parent with kids in track knows the two mile race is the first of the day and the mile is the next to last race of the day. I could write all day long sitting in the bleachers between the kiddos races. It was great.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

Eclectic, contrary, family-centric, shy, passionate

Do you have a favorite movie?

Mel Gibson’s We Were Soldiers is my favorite movie. I love Sam Elliott and Madelaine Stowe. The movie shows both sides of the war…the soldiers and the family waiting at home.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

Broken Toys would make a great action film. It has shooting, romance, an explosion, and lots of unexpected twists and turns.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

The wolf, definitely. Wolves are solitary creatures, but they are also pack animals. They symbolize guardianship, loyalty, ritual, and spirit. They make quick and firm emotional attachments and teach us to trust our hearts and minds.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

I would love to spend time with Rochelle and try to undo the damage her father and his wretch of a wife have done. We would spend the day in nature, preferably near living water, just unwinding and talking or sitting in silence soaking up peace.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

My characters are a combination of people I know, stories I hear, and the phantoms who live in my brain. Most of them are a compilation of many people.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?

A little of both.

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

Broken Toys is a bumpy ride down a twisty country road full of surprises. It’s compelling fiction with real emotions. It shines a light into the darkness of human trafficking and teaches readers without preaching that it’s important to be yourself, to love yourself, especially if you want others to love you, too. (Can you tell marketing/sales is NOT my thing?)

If your book had a candle, what scent would it be?

Sunshine and gunpowder

What did you edit out of this book?

Three complete points-of-view. It was hard at first but I think it made the remaining POV characters so much stronger, deeper.

Is there any writer which brain you would love to pick for advice? Who would that be and why?

Oh boy, is there. Several as a matter of fact including James Patterson, John Sandford, JD Robb aka Nora Roberts, Dean Koontz, and Janet Evanovich. I love each of their styles and have tried to take bits and pieces of each of their writing flavors and blended them into a new flavor all my own.

I’m happy to be one of many tour hosts sharing information on Broken Toys by Glenda Thompson.

Anyone wishing to live must harden and adapt to the new rules of a world post-fall of polite. This dangerous new world will make you into a survivor… or a corpse.
