About the Author
I've been a writer, in one form or another, for as long as I can remember. First, it was lyrics for various bands that needed a drummer/vocalist/songwriter. Eventually, the gigs became too demanding, but the need for a creative outlet never diminished. I found myself writing more and playing less. The steady stream of story ideas flows more every day, and I love where they take me. I may be the one that brings these characters into being, but from there, they take over. They let me know when I've written a dialogue line contrary to their persona. They reveal to me where the story should go, and I'm only too happy to follow.
ENEMY WITHIN THE GATES
JUNE 1, 2021
A covert military mission threatens the aspirations of political newcomer, Katherine Karlson, and her run for the presidency. She devises a plan to scuttle the mission, thereby guaranteeing her the election but destroying any chance for peace in the Middle East. Her daughter witnesses the deception and pleads with her mother to undo the treasonous act, threatening to expose the truth if she refuses. Karlson is forced to choose between the highest office in the land and her only child, which also means silencing everyone who bore witness to the crime.
The most deadly adversary is the one you don't see coming, the one you trust, the one standing beside you already within the gates.
