I was minding his own business one day, watching old VHS recordings of Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes when it dawned on me I had a pile of Bible mysteries tucked away somewhere in a dark corner of my already dark mind. And so I tried combining the two. I got an excellent agent (Les Stobbe) and had a publishing contract with Thomas Nelson (Harper Collins) shortly thereafter.
Six months later, Sherlock Holmes and the Needle's Eye hit the shelves. I hope you enjoy this strange combination. Fun is really my aim here, As there are plenty of serious (but good!) Bible studies out there.

Enjoy! Give me your comments . . .

Hello again, Alan.
I do have one written but, alas!, Clabbernappers & Fantasms didn't do well enough for Tor to extend a contract for a third. I hope you enjoyed Clabber and F, and I have written a screenplay (movie script) for Clabbernappers that is currently being shopped on the west coast. (less)

Need new thriller books

Hello All!

I am a thriller fanatic and love Lee Child, Vince Flynn, Barry Eisler, etc. I am looking for a new thriller series to escape into. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
