Tonight on the Write Stuff — Prodigal Avenger with Tim Moynihan

A Covert Rescue Mission No One Expects to Succeed–Who will survive? 

Special operator and “nice Jewish kid from Hawaii,” Jake “Snake” Drecker, is intent on a mission across borders to eliminate a brutal terrorist cell. That they may or may not also be holding an American missionary hostage is unclear.

The intelligence is sketchy, the objectives vague, and the chance of success slim. Jake’s boss and old friend, Lieutenant Colonel Mike “Pancho” Sanchez, wonders at the mysterious motivation behind his best soldier’s decisions–and about an equally mysterious rogue military unit that shows up at the worst moments to insert itself into their operations. That the CIA seems willing to sacrifice both Drecker’s team and the hostage only adds to the mystery, forcing Pancho to dig deep to discover the truth behind the missionary’s past. And time is running out as Drecker drags his team on a quixotic rescue operation into the very belly of the beast–a mission Drecker and Pancho both know they cannot survive unscathed.

ABOUT THE BOOK

tears of abraham

The first Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in American history–but the second civil war is worse.

When Texas secedes from the Union, Henry and Suzanne Wilkins are as broken as the rest of America. They are breaking up, hurting, and longing for a way to make it right. Then Henry’s clandestine counter-terror unit is ambushed and they must get home, crossing the bleeding country, hunted by the relentless and powerful Directors who will stop at nothing to prevent him from revealing the conspiracy that triggered the war. From the snow-swept slopes of the Rocky Mountains, to mangrove swamps deep in the Everglades back-country, Henry and Suzanne must protect what they love, facing terrible truths about themselves and those they trusted most. They are America–flawed and betrayed–but worth fighting for.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

seantsmith

 

Sean spent the first half of his childhood in Canada, and the second, warmer portion in Miami, learning to love reading science fiction and literature from his father, a poet and author who got rid of the family television and instead read out loud every night… Asimov, Niven, Silverberg, and Herbert replaced The Dukes of Hazzard, and while it was awkward then, it was wonderful in retrospect.

He majored in Political Science at the University of Florida with every intention of entering law school. Writing took hold then, and he decided that he’d rather chase a dream than die with regrets. He moved to Nashville. where he wrote songs for a decade, and learned to write a bit better with the help of great mentors Jon Robin and Ralph Murphy

It’s been a joyous, magic, tragic, and ultimately rewarding journey. He’s hiked much of the Appalachian Trail, slid down glaciers in the Rocky Mountains, gotten very lost in the Everglades back-country, and fished for Marlin in the Gulf Stream. He dove wrecks in the Caribbean, speared fish with sharks and blood in the water, and drank beer in foreign ports with fellow vagabonds, troubadours, and misfits. He lost his faith and love, yet thankfully they found him again.

He started writing fiction after moving back to Florida, and now relishes the broader canvas a novel affords, though he”s still known to pick up his guitar from time to time. He considers being a dad the best thing about him, for his children make him a better man. The love of his wife, who also happens to be his best friend and muse, inspires him to keep writing.

Sean is almost finished with his fifth novel, and already working on number six. At the same time, he is writing for an international video game developer for THE SEED, to be released in 2016 He enjoys interacting with readers, and is easy to find on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, LinkedIn, and Instagram
