The first half of the year has been extremely productive. UPRIVER – An ancient prophecy comes true when American adventurers, Jihadists, lost nuclear weapons, and stolen antiquities converge in a remote jungle. TWELVE LETTERS – Twelve wartime letters from a soldier to his younger brother dramatically change his life. FROM THE SHADOWS – A young man survives in the wilderness with the aid of a reclusive veteran whom the young man aids in finding redemption for a wartime act. UPRIVER and TWELVE LETTERS are with my literary agent. She now has the synopsis for FROM THE SHADOWS. UPRIVER is a new novel. Both TWELVE LETTERS and FROM THE SHADOWS are extensive rewrites of previous versions. Tomorrow it’s back to continuing work on a 21st century satirical novel.
