Fatal Depth in Two Award Competitions

Fatal Depth is Long Listed in 2021 CYGNUS and GLOBAL THRILLER Award Competitions

Exciting news to report for Fatal Depth.  The book, a “Do Or Die Mission” that Fitzhenry & Whiteside released last May, has made the Long List for both of these awards.

I couldn’t be happier with how people have responded to these books.  The stories key into current issues involving both climate change and competition with other superpowers like China, and they are based on real concerns and predictions as nations experience rapid population growth and endure extreme weather events.  As arable farmland shrinks due to Global Warming, and the refugee situation on land nations worsens as nations suffer coastal flooding and famine, governments will look to other places for resources.  As nations fall to rebellion and dictatorship, civilization will naturally search for new places to populate and exploit.  In The Rise of Oceania, it is the oceans, which occupy over 70% of Earth and contain more resources than we can fathom (pun intended), where the superpowers envision Earth’s future success and survival.  A new Cold War soon erupts, with China and the United States being among the nations in direct conflict.  Of course, there is more to the story — and it involves family, murder, revenge, warfare, spycraft and espionage, combat, and more.  There is love and there is violence, and there are twists and turns and huge surprises.  I promise you that my plots are always roller-coaster rides, and they will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Thank you to everyone who supports me.  Purchase copies at online vendors or wherever books are sold.  They are available in paperback and eBook format.  Each book in the series is a standalone adventure, so there is no harm in starting your adventure with either Fatal Depth or An Island of Light (out this month).

Don’t let the pressure get to you!
