The Sheepdog In You

While my writing involves works of fiction, designed to both thrill and entertain readers, it is also intended to honor those men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting others from harm. Whether they serve in the clandestine intelligence community, the military, or in law enforcement, these individuals are sheepdogs—waiting for the wolf to appear. More accurately, they are seeking the wolf out before he can attack the sheep.
