Starting Work on Sequel

Satellite Destoryer

Just finished some final touches on the first chapter of my new novel: “Funhouse Mirrors” and I am finally moving onto the next. The picture here is a clue to a key plot point that is revealed right in the very first chapter. Anyone care to guess what it is?

For readers of “Trapped in a Hall of Mirrors” – this new book is a sequel to it. It will follow Stephen Connor’s exploits as he makes the transition from the CIA’s Directorate of Intelligence into the Directorate of Operations. He’ll still be in Vienna, and there he will need to get trained and learn how to recruit agents. He’ll be successful in doing so, more so than anyone imagined, but will stumble into a gigantic mess, as he usually does. My hope is that this will be a fun book for fans of the first novel.

Authenticity

14 - 1

I’m something of a perfectionist when it comes to doing my best to ensure the authenticity of what I write about in my novels. That includes trying to learn as much as I can about various weapons that my characters may use in my books. I regularly compete in pistol and rifle matches and attend advanced firearms training courses.

The picture above shows me firing a pistol from inside a car during a course I attended a few years ago on shooting in, and around, vehicles. I’ll be taking a firearms class this year that will give me a chance to shoot the entire course using a pistol with an attached suppressor (silencer). It will also be a refresher course for me in clearing a building using only a handgun. I hope to use information I gain from this class in a future book.
