THE LAST FLIGHT, the author's first novel, is scheduled for release in April 2016 by Yucca Publishing.

Set against the harsh beauty of Alaska, THE LAST FLIGHT is the heroic story of Gil Connor, a senior Army helicopter pilot and aging Vietnam vet as he struggles with the finality of his terminal illness and the desire to pull off one last daring rescue. Haunted by the horrors of war and a turbulent past, Connor is torn between ending his embattled life before the inevitable and saving the survivors of a remote plane crash. Amid the turmoil of an approaching storm and almost certain failure, his underlying intentions are unknown, even to himself, until the very end.
