I know I am biased, but I love Todd’s voice.
I’m somewhat at a loss for words which I’m glad doesn’t happen often as I do write for a living. The feeling of seeing my novel finally out there in the world is one of joy and immense satisfaction. And, naturally, there is the excitement and nervousness as I wait to hear what you, the reader, think of it. It was three years of sweat and tears and ecstasy culminating in a novel I am fiercely proud of.
To all my fans, both old and new, I hope you enjoy this new adventure.
I want to thank Amy and Ethan of BeBetterStudios for all their hard work and creative ideas in making this a reality.
And now that my new site is up and running, it’s just hours away from Of Bone And Thunder hitting the shelves!

Colonel Robert W. Black was, and remains, an Airborne Ranger. He fought in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. He was inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame and his awards speak to the extent of his combat experience and courage on the battlefield. Twice awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, he holds the Silver Star, three Bronze Stars (two for valor), the Legion of Merit, the Air Medal, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, two Army Commendation Medals, the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, and the Vietnam Cross of Honor.

As impressive as his military career was, Bob is that much more as a human being. I’ve been so fortunate to work with him on most of his books and privileged to call him my friend. He and his amazing wife, Carolyn, have hosted me many times in their home and treated me like a son. That seeming paradox of fierce warrior and warm, generous soul is something I felt worth exploring in my novels. Read more…
