Here I’ve concentrated on a few subject that interest me. I supply details of my books, which I am republishing over the next two years. I have a few interests that might also interest you–though they are quite eclectic. I also go to the movies once a week so I’ve reviewed them–more for myself than any other reason, but others might find them interesting–or not. I have just finished a young adult fantasy called Dragon Fire (available from Amazon), I plan to include a series of chapters on writing. I’ve published a dozen or so books, and I hope to help others. Enjoy the show.
The Cold War rages. The Berlin Wall separates the two mightiest military forces in history. Deep in the Lubyanka Prison in Moscow, Anton M. Drakov, Director of Department A of the First Directorate (Disinformation), has planned a coup that will make him famous or an instant non-person.
The American CIA and British MI6 believe they have unearthed a Russian plot and move accordingly. They may have fallen into a trap. Neville Conyers, a reluctant member of Six must trust his life to Colonel Novetsky, retired member of Russia’s military intelligence. They can trust no one; can they trust each other? Drakov’s strongest suit is misdirection. Nothing is what it seems. Time is running out. Will Drakov’s plan lead to World War III?
This book was originally published in 1979. It is revised and expanded.

While the chill gray imperatives of espionage coil and uncoil through the KGB, British intelligence, and the streets of East Berlin, Anton Drakov, Director of the Department of Disinformation, is concerned with only one thing—his survival. Those who underestimate him will pay with their lives. Meanwhile an unlikely alliance is renewed. Neville Conyers, unwilling agent in the British SIS, is assigned a mission in which his survival isn’t important. His one possible ally is Colonel Konstantin Novetsky, the Soviet official whose daughter he assassinated. Dare Conyers trust him with his life? It is a question that grows more imperative as they try to escape from East to West Berlin in the depths of subways and among the ruined buildings next to the infamous Berlin Wall.
As before, nothing is what it seems.

A young American lieutenant has a brief, yet memorable, affair with a stunning East Berlin blonde. Britain’s SIS unearths a shocking case of deep penetration by Russia’s KGB. Anton Drakov, a Russian defector with a devastating secret makes a last-ditch plunge toward freedom. Three seemingly unrelated events. Soon to come together with an explosive impact that will shatter across three continents.
The stakes are set for a riveting clash pitting the best against the best…for a masterful counterpoint of terror and intrigue in which today’s friend is tomorrow’s bitterest enemy. This time the Russian defector has a new and formidable enemy, Joshua Davies, Director of Department D of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service. His nickname “the Butcher,” has nothing to do with his gargantuan appetite. From Whitehall’s inner sanctums to Israeli interrogation cells, from Berlin’s seamy underworld to the ancient caves of 18th Century devil worshippers, the deadly cat and mouse takes place. The results are clear–losers die…winner takes all.
