Author's Synopsis

 People are asking me, “So, what’s your next book going to be about?” Well, here it is: It’s a collection of stories about: The son of a slave who flees home and bigotry at the age of eleven... A teen-aged stowaway on a trans-Atlantic freighter... A championship-caliber boxer at the age of eighteen... An accomplished Jazz Age dancer, singer, and comedian... The world's first African-American fighter pilot (in WWI no less)... A self-taught jazz musician who played with "Satchmo"... A confidante to Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, and many others... Successful Paris nightclub impresario at the height of the Jazz Age... A Resistance spy against the Nazis... A wounded hero in two world wars... A Legionnaire decorated with France's highest military honors... An American civil rights pioneer... Who are all of these people? Well, in fact, “they” are all the same man, the remarkable Eugene Bullard (1895-1961), boxer, soldier, jazzman, spy. “All Blood Runs Red” is the title of the book, to be published by Hanover Square Press—an imprint of Harlequin Books—in 2019. It’s the next big book from me, and the first in my new collaboration with fellow author and dear friend, Tom Clavin.

Author's Synopsis

For the last hundred years, the world has operated on a set of rules and social norms that largely benefited the few at the expense of the many. Then the unthinkable happened. A revolt took place, and order was broken. When a new American President bucked the status quo, it set into motion a series of events meant to return the country to the control of the few. Secluded in the small Alpine town of St. Moritz, Switzerland, a rebuttal was crafted. A secret cabal of wealthy and influential men and women gathered to plot the most audacious plan since the formation of America. Cloaked in secrecy and blind loyalty to their leader, these masters of manipulation will embark upon a journey that will change the future of humanity. As the next presidential election approaches in the United States, the general populace is unaware of the plot that has been hatched underneath the surface. Will this election be free and fair, or will it be rigged? If you like political intrigue coupled with hair-raising action, geopolitical chess, and cutting-edge technology, you’ll love Rosone and Watson’s opening installment of the Second American Civil War.

Author's Synopsis

 Too old for the draft, Gil Rossiter spends his days in a basement of a Seattle newspaper typesetting articles about the war. His wife, a Japanese American, is incarcerated with her family in a Wyoming relocation center, her ethnicity the reason for his lack of advancement to reporter. Meanwhile, Ray Ingersoll has been sent back Stateside for sentencing after shooting Japanese prisoners on Iwo Jima. Because he has an otherwise exemplary record, the authorities decide to assign him guard duty at the same internment camp. But Ray has been damaged more than just physically by the fighting, and he brings his hatred of the enemy to his new job. When one of the paper’s combat correspondents is killed, Gil is offered the chance to finally write for the paper, but on what will become the arena for the last battle of WWII, the Japanese-held island of Okinawa. Gil flies out, and follows a unit of Marines around the island until they are stopped at the hideous battle for the south. He watches as one after another of his new colleagues is killed. But there is a larger destiny in store for Gil, one that affects his wife back home.
