Imagine working everyday for the person you love, but can never truly have.


When Michael Oliver’s neatly laid out career path took a sharp right turn from Afghanistan to Washington D.C., he figured his training as a US Army Ranger would never let him down. But swapping fatigues and combat gear for a dark suit and earpiece, he almost paid the supreme price guarding the Speaker of the House.

Then he found himself guarding the quirky little Senator from Los Angeles whom no one ever imagined might come to win the White House.

Not that he’d ever imagined falling in love with the man either, but there was no escaping it.

Michael had a plan though. It was a well thought out, long term plan that would have allowed him to finally retire away from the one person he could never truly have, and focus all his efforts on the Patron Saints Winery he’d bought years before in California.

But a bunch of domestic terrorists and a woman with a grudge, decided to get in the way first, leaving Michael and his Secret Service Team to do the unthinkable in their fight to save the President of the United States:

‘Shoot the hostage’

Nicholas J. Finch – Update


So you’re probably wondering where I’ve been.

Between the holidays, work, and a variety of other commitments, I’ve been extremely busy.   Keeping the website updated has kind of fallen to the wayside.  But, I’m still very active on Goodreads, so you could always follow me there to see my vast collective reading list!

The good news is, I’ve started working on my next book!

It’s in the early stages: working out the idea, building the characters, and doing massive amounts of research on *drumroll please* … Australia!

Yes, Australia.

Expect interesting facts about Australia to start popping up as I go along.

It’s very exciting stuff.



Book Review: The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell

The Fifth GospelThe Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Intrigued by the premise of this book, I came at it with an open mind and wasn’t disappointed.

I starts at a dramatic and unrelenting pace and pauses just long enough for some eloquently lyrical moments of reflection into the human condition, from the loss of parents, the relationship between siblings, failed marriage, longing, reconciliation, and finally the recognition that God is at work in all of it.

Very well done, with just one or two moments required for that ‘willing suspension of disbelief’ that all good drama needs.

Actually, I would’ve mistaken this for Dan Brown with it’s twist on science and faith, and especially from the pace at which I had to keep turning the pages.

Superb stuff.

Highly recommended as a challenging and rollicking read.

Book Review: Fierce Patriot: The Tangled Lives of William Tecumseh Sherman by Robert L. O’Connell

Fierce Patriot: The Tangled Lives of William Tecumseh ShermanFierce Patriot: The Tangled Lives of William Tecumseh Sherman by Robert L. O’Connell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been fascinated with Grant & Sherman for most of my adult life.

The friendship that won the Civil War.

This book was an interesting insight into William Tecumseh Sherman, detailing all aspects of who he was: West Pointer, banker, husband, Uncle Billy, and General Sherman. It showed so much of his strategic thinking, in and out of the military, and how is life led him to the March through Georgia.

Sherman is either loved or vilified, there really is no in between. He also didn’t care. He did what had to be done.

Reading this will tell you more about the man, how he became the legend, and how he made sure the myth would live on.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking into studying Sherman, to learn more about his career, the war, and his life long battle with Catholicism.

National Coming Day

As an advocate and member of the LGBTQ Community, coming out is never an easy decision.

For some though, it is easy, as those around them knew all along and chose to embrace their loved one.

For other’s its a terrible nightmare with yelling, accusations, and loss of everything.

The decision to come out is a very personal one.

It’s not a friend or a family members’ decision to force them out, no matter the good intentions, or lack thereof.

It’s not society’s place to yank someone out of the closet either, just because it makes good news.


For those who have come out: You are brave, strong, and worth it.

For those who haven’t: You are brave, strong, and worth it.

For those who have lost loved ones: You are brave, strong, and worth it

For those who have gained loved ones: You are brave, strong, and worth it.


To read about the characters I have created and how they ‘came out’ you can read:
