I’ve been writing every since my mother told me to sit down and shut up. I have written a little bit of everything. Presently, I’m into ancient aliens and science fiction. My stories are more of a military sci-fi/space opera than hard science.

For those into coming-of-age space operas, I offer Cadet Adam. I haven’t forgotten my fantasy friends. I offer Shem’s Quest, the first of four in a series. First Created, the second volume, is completed and in audio book pre-production.

Bill Eckel’s futuristic sci-fi tale of revolution and war hooks you in from the first page and holds your attention till the last. Brimming with action and political intrigue, Hard Kill leaves you breathless with a relentlessly fast-paced narrative without a single dull moment. The plot moves in unexpected ways with twists and turns that make you turn the pages with eager anticipation of what’s to come. Aric’s evolution from an idealist who followed the law by the book to an all-out revolutionary leading the rebellion felt riveting to read. I particularly enjoyed Aric’s dynamic with Kurtz and his father, Leal. Anyone who loves to read action-packed sci-fi books should give Hard Kill a shot.
