If the Marines are “the few, the proud,” Recon Marines are the fewest and the proudest. Nathaniel Fick’s career begins with a hellish summer at Quantico, after his junior year at Dartmouth. He leads a platoon in Afghanistan just after 9/11 and advances to the pinnacle—Recon— two years later, on the eve of war with Iraq. His vast skill set puts him in front of the front lines, leading twenty-two Marines into the deadliest conflict since Vietnam. He vows to bring all his men home safely, and to do so he’ll need more than his top-flight education. Fick unveils the process that makes Marine officers such legendary leaders and shares his hard-won insights into the differences between military ideals and military practice, which can mock those ideals.

Unwittingly plunged into a paranormal nightmare...

David Morehouse-A highly decorated, exemplary Army officer, special operations infantryman, and elite Airborne Ranger Company Commander. Wounded by machine-gun fire during a training mission, Morehouse began to have inexplicable visions and haunting nighmares-an experience that would redirect his military career and land him in the government's top-secret Stargate Program. His life would never be the same...

Stargate-For nearly two decades, the United States military intelligence community delved into the dark world of psychic espionage, recruiting a team of psychic spies to serve as "remote viewers," individuals who used their paranormal gifts to transcend time and space and uncover the highly guarded military secrets of other nations.

Unable to tell the shocking truth for fear of death-until now...

When David Morehouse walked through the doors of the Stargate Program, he had little idea what awaited him: a paranormal hell that would bring him to the front lines of some of the most horrific disasters in recent history-and nearly destroy him. In chilling detail, Morehouse describes his psychic espionage work as a remote viewer, from the shattering explosion of Pan Am Flight 103 to the choking smoke of Desert Storm, even further back in time to Hiroshima and the darkest days of Nazi Germany. And more startling yet is his account of the U.S. government, an organization bent on the destructive use of psychic powers-and on stopping the one man who was brave enough to blow the lid off their top-secret Stargate Program.

Breastfeeding in Combat Boots is now in E-Book format!

Breastfeeding in Combat Boots is FINALLY available in both Kindle and E-Pub formats.  I have been hounding my publisher for over a year to bring my book to this format due to the high demand from deployed military personnel who want to have an electronic version of the book rather than having to carry a full-sized book in thier gear.  It is here and works great on the Kindle, the Kindle app, the Nook and the iBooks app on the iPad.  Furthermore the many weblinks I have in the book are now easily accessable for moms to gather even more information straight from the device itself.

At The Crossroads of Humanity


The Last Jump is a historical novel of World War II.  America had its trials and tribulations with racial and gender bias and struggled with these issues throughout the War.  A segregated military and a condescending attitude toward women made it extremely difficult for these groups to fully participate and prove themselves.  But not impossible!
