He will be selling and signing pre-released copies at the Rialto Theatre on the north side of Alva’s Downtown Square from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Moriah Ruse is about CIA Director Margaret Winters and her complex task of providing the president of the United States with actionable information to keep Iran from wiping Israel off the map. What happens next is a grueling, dangerous, and heart-wrenching quest for intelligence that could cost lives but prevent a world war. With the lives of a patriotic few caught in a clandestine mission, those keeping us safe, people whose stories will likely never be told, face dire straits in hopes of preventing a war unlike any seen before. Hope teases all involved with the birth of a plan so incredible. It. Just. May. Work.

The Moriah Ruse will be released by Tate Publishing and Enterprises December 1st and made available after that date on line at, Barnes & Noble, Borders and Target. An advance copy can be purchased directly from the publisher at
