Diggin' Out A Thorne

I’m pleased to announce the release of my new novel “Diggin’ Out A Thorne.” It is available on both Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook.

 Here’s what it's about :

 Federal Judge Teresa Thorne believed in the law. She also believed in justice. Even so, when the Russian Mafia targeted her son, She acted as any other mother would—she ran.

Now, under the watchful eye of United States marshals service, she’s attempting to carve out a new life  with her son. But  is the witness protection program powerful enough to protect them from Carlos  Vanada, the Mafia’s relentless assassin? 

Teresa and her son Jimmy are caught in a high-stakes game of hide and seek.  A battle between good and evil, where the winner literally takes all. The only question is, will they survive?

The  novel is the first in a series and will follow the career of its main character, Jimmy Thorne. It will also be available as an audiobook on Audible.com soon. I’ll keep you informed. The audiobook is read by John Pruden, who happens to an extremely gifted narrator. Fans of John can purchase the  audio program  just  to hear his excellent portrayal. I promise not to be offended at all.

I had a lot of fun writing this particular book. For one thing, one of the main characters was a  Marine sniper named Sam Shepard, who taught at Quantico.  To write this segment of the book I had to learn a great deal about what it means to be a sniper. I also had to learn about guns, ammo, and how to zero a weapon.

They say that we learn from our books and “Diggin”  is certainly no exception. I’ve developed quite an interest in shooting at long ranges. Normally, people turn their hobbies into books. In my case, I believe the book has given me a new hobby.

If you happen to pick up a copy, please let me know what you think. I’m always grateful for the input provided by readers as it helps me become a better writer. Also, because this happens to be the first book in a series, your feedback will help determine what might happen in the sequel.

I hope you enjoy it.
