I am currently working hard as an author, my 4th career. I owned and operated a convenience store for 10 years and a computer networking company for 25 years. I was a school teacher and counselor in the public schools. I am a proud husband, father and grandfather. I am someone who cares about the people around me, who wants to improve the society we all live in, who hopes on a daily basis to leave the planet a little better than it was the previous day and who is cognizant that the impact I have on the world is minimal. Tilting at windmills is a part of my character as is a deep love for all those who need to be loved. In my own mind I am a complex, multi-layered, unique character in the kaleidoscoping drama of life.

Lethal Agent by Kyle Mills

The book is billed as Lethal Agent by Vince Flynn but since he is deceased it is merely put on the cover to get Flynn’s readers to try Kyle Mills writing about Mitch Rapp.  Rapp, Flynn’s most popular protagonist, appears to be a bit more violent in Mills’ version.  This book is about a long time terrorist enemy of Mitch Rapp, trying to attack the U.S. with a biological weapon.
