The Zeus Payload - Book Cover

Nick King is a computer programmer and the lead technologist at his grandfather’s company, Gordon Defense Technology. When he’s not developing sophisticated security software for private and government clients, Nick and his friend and roommate, Dean Wright, travel to the Middle East in search of the terrorist responsible for the 1983 Beirut embassy bombing that killed Nick’s parents. Nick has promised his grandfather, Anthony Gordon, a former CIA operative, that he will find and kill the terrorist, Saleh, before his grandfather dies from heart failure and dementia.

February is a busy month on the writing front.

I’m creating a stage play as part of 24 Hour Creative on February 5th, and seeing it performed on February 6th at Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano.

I’m appearing at a book club on February 10th in Pleasanton, CA. They’re reading The Zeus Payload, and want to discuss the book and the writing profession with me.

I’m appearing at Book Carnival in Orange, CA on February 13th at 3PM. I’ll be sharing the stage with Lance Charnes, a gifted author, and we’ll interview each other and sign books.

I’m appearing at another book club on February 18th in Palos Verdes Estates, CA. They’re reading The Zeus Payload, and want to discuss the book and the writing profession with me.

I’ll be at the Southern California Writers Association monthly meeting in Fountain Valley on February 20th.

And I’m deep into rewriting Lamia, my next novel. Good times.12647112_944799808901026_8425770148286643162_n
