I left school at the age of fifteen and commenced my trade as a panel beater. Nine years later I joined the Australian Army where I enjoyed many magnificent years. I’ve had a short foray into life as a quarantine inspector, tried my hand at running a couple of small businesses, and worked for a major energy supplier. I’m a rugby league fan and support the North Queensland Cowboys. I love to play golf and I don’t mind a beer on any day that ends in ‘Y’. Back in the day, I certainly found my fair share of strife; mostly just ‘boys being boys’ type stuff. I am happily married with two grown up children and I currently reside in North Queensland. Some people have asked how I pieced this story together. If I had to give a rough estimate, I would say it’s one third life experience and personal knowledge, one third research, and one third vivid imagination. At this stage, HOME SOIL (Team Blake pt1) is intended to be the first book in a five part series. Happy Reading Doug
While serving overseas with an elite Australian Special Forces unit, LOGAN BLAKE's father and sister become victims of a devastating terrorist attack. When Logan is given the chance to investigate those responsible, the investigation soon becomes a man hunt as well as a race against time. Plans for a catastrophic attack on Australian soil have been discovered… The clock is ticking.
Amidst a backdrop of exotic locations, LOGAN BLAKE and his team of Special Forces Operators must embark on a world-wide terrorist hunt. They are tasked with capturing the perpetrator alive. The situation intensifies when crooked CIA agents, rogue Mossad officers, and a rapidly expanding extremist organisation, all with separate agendas, begin searching for the same man.
