I go to the gym, take a walk, etc., and try to forget writing. You never truly forget writing and within a day, or even hours, ideas swirl and I'm back to work. (less)

Hearing that means my hard efforts to create a story were truly worthwhile. For a short period of time I was successfully able to transport that reader to a world I created solely for their enjoyment. (less)

Solomon's Men (Mystery & Thrillers)
2 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Greg Valdez is the best in the business. You name it; he’s stolen it—from jewels to fine art, and all for private collectors and insurance companies. Now his mission takes him to a centuries old monastery in Portugal to steal a priceless artifact—a Crusader’s pouch—from within the altar. But the artifact becomes the ransom for his loved ones and the object of a mercenary led search. Old oaths and traditions come into play as a secret, militant religious Order launches an international chase for the thief and the true Shroud of Jesus concealed within the Crusader’s pouch.
