About this author

I like Barbados rum, old,fast motorcycles, playing guitar and books by authors like Michael Connelly, Robert Crais and Lee Child. I write action/adventure thrillers. WHITE JADE is the first in a series featuring the PROJECT, a small, elite counter-terrorism unit. It's available now in paperback and Kindle. THE LANCE, second in the series, is also available. I'm currently writing the third novel in the PROJECT series, featuring Nick Carter and Selena Connor. Please visit me at

The Next Move
I've been thinking about Amazon's Kindle Unlimited program and the effect it's had on sales for writers like myself. Big names in self-publishing (read: Indie) are bailing on the KDP Select program because of Kindle Unlimited (KU). Joe Konrath and Russell Blake are two that I've heard of. Both of these writers are millionaire Indie success stories, partly because they're prolific,... Read more of this blog post »

“Courage is accepting your fear and doing whatever needs to be done anyway. Cowards are people who can't face up to their fear and let it get the better of them. There's always a place for courage. There's always something that can be done. You might not see it right away. Sooner or later something comes to mind that can help you through it. You make up your mind that it's okay to be afraid and you are going to be all right. Then you do what has to be done. That's courage.”
Alex Lukeman, The Lance

“the inconvenience she represented.”
Alex Lukeman, Black Harvest
