3rd firefighter novel- GERRY’S WAR book launch

I’ll be at the Seba Beach Farmer’s Market for the launch and signing of GERRY’S WAR my 3rd firefighter novel. Saturday Aug. 5th 10:30am – 12:30pm Seba Beach is a small summer community on the west side of Lake Wabamun. It has a great farmer’s market and the people their like to read.  Gloria and I will pack a picnic and may even go for a swim.

New Novel – GERRY’S WAR

My new novel, GERRY’S WAR has arrived.  If you liked OLD FLAMES well, Captain Ormond is back.  He was pensioned out of Vancouver Fire amid controversy of all the murders and mayhem.  He’s offered a chief’s job in Niagara Falls where things are NOT what they appear.  Many of the same characters are here, but the story is quite different.  Branko is way bad this time and works for the Russian mob who are taking over an iconic hotel casino project.  Gerry is even bribed!

Just in

It’s available in paperback thru Amazon now ,and soon on Kindle and other E-device formats.


Gerry’s War


Gerry`s War Cover

Just got the proof copy for Gerry’s War and it looks really good.  My oldest son Joel designed the cover and my youngest tweaked it. It is my 3rd firefighter novel.  There’s two blank pages before chapters that have to be adjusted by the printer.  I have a book launch at Seba Beach Farmers Market in August on the 5th and hope Teeth of the Cocodrilo will be ready then, too.  Odd that the cost on Gerry’s War is lower at 126,000 words than Teeth of the Cocodrilo which is only 100,000 words.  I have to look into this because it is US dollars.

UK Amazon Storyteller Competition – Teeth of the Cocodrilo

I did it!


It was a rush to meet the UK Amazon Storyteller Competition 2017 deadline but I did it.  I also asked a few people to read it in its entirety as my writers group only sees a chapter a month.  Presently, TEETH OF THE COCODRILO is only available in eBook until after the judges pick a winner.  Its 101,700 words and set in Mexico.  I was rushed bec

ause I didn’t find out about the contest until the end of April so I was scrambling.  Then, I wasn’t sure if it was accepted as the entries were posted on the site.  I found out a book also has to be published so

I went and did that.  Still no sign of it.  I went to a chat site and found out Amazon hadn’t updated their site for a few days.  Anyhow,  a paperback will be out in September after the contest closes.  But the eBook is available now.    The story has romance murder and revenge.  The protagonist is an ex-firefighter.  And I am the storyteller.

New Novel is Finished

My new novel is finished.   TEETH OF THE COCODRILLO. Toasting myself with a glass of red.


It’s out with one test reader, who is not with my writers group, and hopefully I’ll have another.  Cocodrillo is Spanish for crocodile.  It is 98, 000 words and will be entered in the Amazon UK competition for 20,000 pounds!    I really enjoyed writing it.  I posted the synopsis on the ‘What’s Up’ section on my site.  This picture is the tentative cover. I took the picture of a drawing on a wall in Zihuatenajo Mexico and played with it on a great photo site.  This will be my  10th novel with Gerry’s War coming out in May.


Gerry’s War is almost ready

My 3rd Canadian firefighter novel GERRY’S WAR is almost ready.  It’s at the publisher’s getting a final read and edit.  I figure  it should be available in eformat and paperback by the end of April.

On the near horizon:

My 4th adult thriller will be 32 chapters I think.  Chapter 30 is submitted to my writers group and I have to write the final chapter this month.  Tentatively named TEETH OF THE COCODRILLOS

Teeth of the Cocodrillos

it’s set in Cancun, Mexico.  Murder and mayhem and an ex-firefighter as the protagonist.  I am looking for test readers to give me some overall feedback on this story.  If you’re interested, let me know.  Not sure if Bookkus publishing would publish this one but it will be going on their site for reviews anyhow.  I will submit it to other publishers, too.   It’s a bit different than the first three, but a firefighter is still the primary focus. Why not, they are men of action?  So we got action, hot romance, Mexican cops, exotic location, murder and mayhem.  I took the pic of the cocodrillo in Mexico at a reserve.  Check out the brave turtle.

The curtain closes on Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Well, my 5 weeks in Zihuatanejo, Mexico are almost over and as the curtain closes I managed to give out a few bookmarks on the beach when people were talking, trading, or asking about books.  Thanks Debbie C.  I’m trying to get in touch with K. Baker.  Thanks Laura too, we all had an interesting conversation

Guerrero State police

under umbrellas on the beach.  There was shooting down the block from my condo but my wife and I were gone.  We returned to see a motorbike on its side on the road and a police barricade and someone was taken to the hospital.l.  So you fellas ridin’ those Harleys with the big pipes….take note.  LOL   Been trying to get some decent shots of the local cops and really don’t want to excite them, so I have to be secretive.  It’s for the cover of my Mexican thriller in 1st draft.


Constant patrols


BREAKAWAY synopsis

s 28 and 29 are

The first draft of Breakaway is nearly done.  Chapters 28 and 29 are with my writers group.  One chapter remains. GERRY’S WAR will be available in late spring.  Check out the BREAKAWAY synopsis:

Breakaway synopsis:Life in Mexico’s beautiful Mayan Riviera was never meant to be such a dangerous place for Aaron Landers, ex-pat Canadian.  He is busy growing his dive tour business near Cancun.  His rescue of two boys at a car accident leads him to a fateful encounter with Commandant Luis Gutierrez, the head of the Mexican state police.  The two men chance upon an opportunity for easy money with Richard Breve, an oil consultant.  The die is cast, escalating to another more lucrative crime involving the alluring Maria Vasquez.  Aaron’s obsession with Maria blinds him to her sordid past with Luis and her vengeful, estranged husband, Hernando.  The highly risky scheme has far reaching consequences that will rip their lives apart.  Bound together by murder, love, and hate, Aaron must find a way to break away–at any cost.
