I am a serious student of history, political, economic, military history, read copiously, often 2-3 books a week, and I have found this knowledge to be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing: I understand what I have read, and I prefer original sources. The curse: mankind is really doomed to repeat the same errors endlessly.
Do I take myself seriously? Not really, even though the characters I use in my books all have some basis in reality, I have found that the passions of youth really do mellow out as one gets older.
I do take great pride in using weapons and systems that either actually exist, or are theoretically possible. Also the combat situations I describe are as accurate as I can make them.
In my book Destruction of Civilization; The Apocalypse Begins the scariest part of writing it was seeing that the preconditions necessary for the story to actually happen were happening.
I have now completed the next volume in the Death of Civilization series, Death of Civilization; Reclamation.
The Death of Civilization continues with the novel I am currently hard at work on; Death of Civilization; Disaster!
Extinction Earth! was a very enjoyable book to write and I have started the next volume in this series also.
As a person, I am a grandfather of 3, a father of 2 boys and a girl, have been married to the same wonderful woman for 45 years, and have made, and lost, two fortunes, but have made my third, so I stopped while I was ahead.
If you have questions, suggestions, or whatever, my author e-mail is; email@example.com.
I do try to check my mail daily but sometimes I forget because I'm having too much fun killing off a character or two.

Great book! well worth the cost. I hope there is another one after this one, hard to put down.

This is a hard book to stop reading. It grabs your interest from the start because of the authors masterfull blending of reality and fiction.
The story is actually terrifying because, as the author writes in a postscript, almost all of the necessary pre-conditions have already happened.
Full of action, good solid characters, and a hero that can also be brutal.
A very good read. It is hard to believe that this is supposed to be Nathan Hales first book.
Personally I can't wait for his promised next volume in this series.
