The headlines read:
U. S. Bolstering Pacific Military Forces to Counter ‘Massive’ Beijing Buildup.
Pentagon Acknowledges Beijing Seeks Global Supremacy.
This is what the news media is saying. But what exactly is happening behind closed doors?
The Beijing Memorandum takes reader on a thrill ride from the heavily guarded Zhongnanhai compound in Beijing to the FBI Headquarters in the Nation’s Capital to the White House’s Situation Room to the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City.
Former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Moses Remington knew terror firsthand. He saw it during his combat deployments in Fallujah, Iraq and in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He saw it again in Mexico when he stumbled across China’s secret plan.
Now, he must dodge Chinese assassins and an FBI dragnet to save Consulate General Gao Quan and his family from certain execution to disclose China’s secret plans to the world.
How did you do research for your book?
I am disabled and principally use the internet. Google maps has been especially helpful. Occasionally I’ll solicit information on the telephone or travel to the site.
What advice would you give budding writers?
Patience and when that is exhausted, more patience. Study the craft and associate with other writers. Expect to take five years before you begin to see the fruits of your labor. Never stop studying. And, gain the support of your family.
If you could put yourself as a character in one of your books, who would you be?
Oh, that is an easy question. I would be Police Captain Roscoe Drummond. He was a minor character in my first novel, SETH. He was principled, tough as nails, and honest. He told it like it was.
In today’s tech world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper?
I sat in a lounge chair next to a resort pool in Las Vegas and wrote the first several chapters to my fifth novel, THE RESCUE OF LIDDIE MacARTHUR for release in 2020. I used a legal writing pad and the words flowed onto the paper. It was such an exciting experience and one I treasure.
Where do you write?
I write in a small den in our home. I spent twelve years working in an office without a window. I now have a window. Life is good. My wife says the office is cluttered. I say it is organized. My chair in front of the desktop is like an airplane cockpit. I can turn in any direction and retrieve what I need.
Do you write every day and what is your writing schedule
I usually write six days a week. Of course, the schedule is abandoned when family and friends visit. The seventh day is my ugly day. Administrative tasks. Pay household bills and file management are two examples.
It you could go back in time, where would you go?
The western author Louis L’Amour and I would get on our horses and ride the trails of 1870’s Arizona. We would eat dust, smell the wood smoke of the campfire, and rest our heads on saddles. Jubal Sackett would join us and we’d say “Yep” every day.
