It has been a great week for the thrillers.
The Vanishing Wife received its 80th Amazon review and it’s a 5-star:
“This was one of the best books I have ever read. From chapter to chapter you never know what is going to happen. I would read another book by this author.” – Speede Reader
A Perilous Question was RECOMMENDED by the US Review of Books. Read the review here:
Thank you to all who have read and reviewed my books. Reviews are priceless to authors and readers alike.
I’m delighted to announce that A Perilous Question just received Finalist honors from Eric Hoffer Book Awards. In their words: “…less than 10% of the nominees become category finalists. We consider this a distinction of its own merit…”
Thank you Eric Hoffer Awards Committee!
My first book, written with my son Chris and called Kilimanjaro and Beyond: A Life-Changing Journey, has now been re-published under my Keep On Climbing Publishing banner. It chronicles the work needed to prepare ourselves for climbing Africa’s highest mountain and our subsequent efforts to help the kids of Africa. I’m very proud to say it’s the winner of two literary awards.
Both the paperback and e-book are already at a new low price BUT from now until midnight, April 28, the Kindle version will be available at Amazon for only $0.99 USD.
Here’s the link:
This is your chance to get it while it’s on sale!
Kilimanjaro and Beyond will be re-published on Amazon within the next month under my Keep On Climbing brand. Watch for a special on the day it’s released.
I’m very happy to announce that A Perilous Question just received the following recognition this morning:
“Your book ‘A Perilous Question‘ was chosen as an “Official Selection” in the Suspense / Thriller category of our 2016 New Apple Annual Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing!”
A few book clubs have asked me if study guides are available for my books. They are now available for The Vanishing Wife and A Perilous Question under the “Books” tab. Book clubs are welcome to use them as is or develop them for their own particular needs.

I’m honoured to see my book featured at the Nepean Branch of the Ottawa Public Library along with some great titles.
As I reflect on 2016, I have to say it has been a very satisfying year for me as an author. My new book, A Perilous Question, was released in May and won an award as the best crime novel in the e-book category shortly after. There were many book signings and new experiences in this new (to me) world of writing and publishing. I say they were new experiences even though A Perilous Question was my fourth book. I’m learning the business as I go, but I quickly discovered that of everything that revolves around writing and publishing, the most satisfying is knowing that there are people out there reading and enjoying your books. Thank you very much to all of you and have a wonderful 2017.
