Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I currently have three books in the hopper. One is a prequel to the Sleeping Dogs series. It explores their individual childhood experiences that made them who they are today. It also covers their recruitment and training by Levell and McCoy as well as their early missions. Another book doesn't feature the Dogs. It will be a stand-alone book about what happens to corrupt bureaucrats who mess with the wrong citizen. Of course, there's another book in the Sleeping Dogs series on the horizon. AGU is still attempting to dominate the planet and has targeted the Dogs for extinction. Nadir Shah and his crazies are still dedicated to annihilating all non-believers and apostates. Stay tuned.

The Sleeping Dogs
The world is becoming ever more dangerous. China is on the offensive, solidifying its dominion throughout Asia and setting its sights on the rest of the planet. The Russian president intensifies his threat against the free peoples of Europe and beyond. Islamic terrorists continue to fan the flames of hatred and discord across the globe. And some of America’s most dangerous enemies are inside the Beltway. Meanwhile, America’s government, like a modern Nero, fiddles away the country’s treasure, seemingly too oblivious or incompetent to recognize the threat. Time is running out and the patriotic shadow government known as The Society of Adam Smith doesn’t have the benefit of unlimited human and financial resources. But it does have the one resource that no one else has—the world’s deadliest team of hunter-killers, known as the Sleeping Dogs. But not all dogs make good pets—especially when they are the hounds of Hell.
