The first Canadian firefighter novels written by a Canuck firefighter are here. They’ve had some great reviews so check out the writing samples on this site. Bookkus has decided to take all three on so they’ll be in paperback sometime in 2014.
Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway. - John Wayne
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King 1963
Old Flames (suspense/mystery) Meet the very first Canadian firefighter pulp fiction hero. Captain Gerry Ormond, a modern day hero visits his hometown after a twenty year absence. His old crime as a teenager in a renegade fraternity comes to light and his life begins to unravel. Old friends are now enemies and an arson murderer seeks revenge for the old crime. Some say this is the best of my firefighter books.
Gerry’s War (suspense/mystery) When Gerry Ormond accepts a fire chief position, he has no idea of the trouble he’s inheriting. As firefighters are murdered, department money is embezzled, and the Red Mafiya bares their teeth, Chief Ormond fights back. Amidst the carnage, one man stands alone. So far, this is the favorite of my firefighter books.
Final Response (thriller, taken on by Bookus Publishing). Captain Jack Sellars and his crew are selected to protect a city temporarily evacuated for the winter as the Ice Age returns. What seemed like an easy gig turns deadly as a criminal element is discovered. For the firefighters, staying alive until spring will be the toughest assignment they’ve ever had. This garnered great reviews on the reader-driven Bookkus site.
