The Michael Neill Adventures have been nominated for thechristianmanifesto.com's Lime Award for Excellence in Fiction for three years running. They have also won the Shelf Unbound Notable Book Award in the Page Turner category, received the Five Star Award from readersfavorite.com, the Five Star Award from Literary Classics (earning Gold and Silver in their 2016 Book Awards competition), and have been included on the Military Writers Society of America's recommended reading list.
In my day job, I'm a multimedia designer and have worked in advertising for over 25 years. I served in the Marines during the 1980s, and I'm now a senior NCO in the Air Force Reserve, deploying to Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan, in addition to tours in the United States, Germany, and the Pacific. I've also visited the former Soviet Union several times.
I've read a lot of the biggest names in the thriller genre, and I like to think my books are different. Many authors don't realize how important faith is to members of our military, especially those deployed to the war zone. The protagonists in The Michael Neill Adventures are men of faith, and while they live out their religion, the books aren't preachy.
I've tried to portray my characters as real people relying on God to guide their decisions. And I've also attempted to make the books character-driven. I stay true to the technology mentioned in the story, but without getting bogged down in the details.
