D-Day - Normandy - behind Utah Beach. Just after midnight the drop began. Come dawn, 18 C-47s and their paratroopers were missing. What could have the missing troopers accomplished if they had landed safely and engaged the enemy? MISSING STICKS tells one story in a fictional tribute to all those men of the 101st Airborne Division Screaming Eagles who made the D-Day assault on Normandy.








ONE STICK AND A WACO is fiction, a historical novel set in time and place during Operation MARKET GARDEN the thrust into Holland with the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne Division, the second novel in the "STICK" series. Like MISSING STICKS, ONE STICK and a WACO isn't about strategy or glory, just combat.








SNOW STICKS picks up our 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles troopers as they are leaving Holland after fighting across Holland to "The Island" during Market Garden, to take a little break in France; take time to to enjoy the fruits of France, maybe sneak back to England for a short visit to a war bride.

Screaming Eagle Press is pleased to finally announce the publication of GULF WINDS, a contemporary thriller set on the Florida Gulf coast.








LOST KEY begins with Corporal Harry Parker as a young Special Forces soldier thrust into the middle of the disastrous and short-lived Cuban counter-revolution, then takes you with a far older and, perhaps wiser, Parker when he is summoned from his Washington DIA office to revisit the seamy side of Tampa's Ybor City. There he is drawn into the middle of a  drugs-for-arms transaction in a significant revision of the now-out-of-print Flash of Emerald.
