I picked the German side in Espionage London because the plot was everything a thriller could be. The reader knew the outcome of the conflict yet at the time of the story, there was this absolute certainty that provided the secret device worked, Hitler would win. It was probably the first thought the reader had that the team would all be caught or the device failed. How else could History be reconciled. As the story advances, the reader has to face the fact they are wrong and this just cannot be. The thoughtful reader will understand, from the clear explanation in the story, how the simplest thing can turn things around. I promise readers a clear logical story and no smoke and mirrors. That is what makes this story so compelling.
I find him to be the most sympathetic and empathetic character in the book, a man who has done terrible things and who is trying desperately to forget, or redeem himself if he can. I know this probably isn’t how a lot of other writers do it, but when I envision a character, I’ll usually think of the actor I imagine playing them in the movie. It might be a hold-over from when I was studying screenplays before I turned to writing novels, but I always imagined Andre Braugher in the role. He has this careful deliberation and gravitas about him, a quiet power. Very eloquent, enunciating every syllable.
I'm proud to bring some much deserved attention to a really amazing fantasy novel! "The Lord of Salamander" is filled with self discovery, perilous journeys and a young man who just might beat the odds! Intrigued? You should be! We enjoyed the tale so much that we rated it 4 stars!
What kind of person thinks to run to be Archminister? The idealistic fool, the strict careerist, and the sinister. In short, the only sorts the job description's not revolted, are unqualified to do it or the type that shouldn't hold it. Senator Aphid only wanted to improve his country, though after four years in the District of Laws he really should have known better. He's removed from office and soon grudgingly finds himself paired with Frog Dell, the reckless and self-indulgent hermit of the junkyard. As the two evade the wrath of a government run amok with corruption, dissension spreads through the public, and conspiracy reigns.
As I wrote Dan’s story, he struck me as a nice guy from a small town, unpretentious, and unchanged by his new found wealth. In some ways, he and Holly were opposite, which is, perhaps, what attracted Dan to Holly.
Fed up with cheating women, Dan Alexander, star pitcher for the New York Nighthawks, grew restless. Searching for something more than a bar babe, he zeroed in on a girl in the stands. He never expected to see a beautiful chick pushing frankfurters. But the hot dog girl looked as smokin’ as the food she was selling. Holly Merrill found a place to hide in plain sight, as a vendor at Nighthawks’ stadium. Keeping her secret safe and simply happy to stay alive, she never considered finding love an option. After all, a bad girl doesn’t deserve a decent guy, does she? Coming off his best season ever, Dan went into the playoffs, hell bent on winning the pennant and playing in the World Series. But could he maintain his focus on the field, where everything was going right, when off the field everything was falling apart?
