I have just published the sequel to NICKELODIUM, titled AMERAGEDDON. It is available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle at this time. The paperback will follow shortly, and I’ll let you all know with a new blog when it is published.
AMERAGEDDON is a novel concerning domestic terrorism, a topic that is not only timely but also frighteningly real to many of us who remember such incidents as the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood and most recently the Boston Marathon bombing of April, 2013. Thankfully, many other attempts at domestic terrorism that never made the news have been thwarted by federal, state and local law enforcement. But we live under a constant threat of new attacks from radical extremists and must remain ever vigilant.
Those of you who read NICKELODIUM may remember SHARON RICHARDS, the former FBI agent and DUNCAN’S wife. In AMERAGEDDON, she is the lead character.
This riveting story may be eerily prescient. GOD HELP US IF IT COMES TRUE!
OUR WORST NIGHTMARE HAS COME TRUE! In this riveting story that may be eerily prescient, a coordinated series of massive bombings has killed thousands, staggered the economy and triggered riots in cities across the nation. One of the targets is the world’s largest cruise ship that is destroyed by a hijacked airliner.
Former FBI agent SHARON RICHARDS, her husband and two children are on board the ship. Her family is killed, but she miraculously survives and vows to avenge their murders.
Lacking adequate proof and restricted by constitutional law, the government seems helpless to prevent further bombings. In a strange quirk of fate, Sharon is recruited by the President of the United States to penetrate a suspected home-grown terrorist cell and gather evidence to stop further attacks.
Time is running out before the next round of devastating explosions. She must act quickly outside the law to save the country from unbridled anarchy and total economic collapse.
IF SHE FAILS, IT COULD MEAN THE END OF AMERICA!
Okay, maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic. After all, I’m trying to convince you to read my story, right? But look at the news every day. Tell me, do you feel the country is as safe from acts of terror now than it was ten years ago? If I polled all of you, I’m sure the overwhelming answer would be NO. We’re all looking for leadership from our government and finding precious little, right? Washington, D.C. is a sea of corruption and partisan bickering. Political correctness has trumped common sense. Somewhere along the way, CYA has replaced patriotism. The result is a collection of selfish bureaucrats who are only interested in two things–wasting money and getting re-elected.
AMERAGEDDON is not only a story about domestic terrorism, but it also brings a fresh, pragmatic look to this country’s leadership in the form of ELIZABETH STANTON, the newly-elected President of the United States. And, to those of you who read the LENA MILLS TRILOGY, you will be pleased to see her make a cameo appearance as well.
After learning that I write novels, most people ask what they’re about. I answer candidly (and with tongue in cheek), “Women who kick butt.” As President Elizabeth Stanton says in the book, “Men, you’ve had more than your share of chances to screw things up. Over the last hundred years you’ve managed through greed, vanity and downright stupidity, to lead our country to the brink of disaster. Now get the hell out of the way. Let this woman clean house and pick up your dirty laundry!”
I do hope you will read and enjoy my new novel. It’s not all doom and gloom, but has a fair amount of humor blended in for good measure.
