It’s been a while since we last spoke. I’ve been busy – writing the sequel to CHINA SEA. The title of the second novel is JAVA SEA. The story takes place twenty-seven years later. Roy Mancini and Cynthia got married and had a couple of sons. Roy and his oldest son, Marc are the main characters in JAVA SEA.

The story begins with a bang – literally and figuratively. Marc and his fiance, Ayu, are engaged in a torrid sex scene at the very moment there is an explosion  in the distance. There is a massive terrorist bombing in Bali.

Later on the president of Indonesia warns the U.S. president not to get involved in the investigation. And that is where Roy and Marc Mancini  enter the picture. They plan and execute a mission to identify, locate and terminate the bombers – one by one.

The settings for the novel are in Indonesia, from Bali to Aceh, and the Visayan islands and Mindanao in the Philippines.

We will publish the novel later this year. Stay tuned.

I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Southern California. I served aboard submarines in the United States Navy. I have lived in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Bali, Indonesia. During my period living in Southeast Asia I ran an export company and played throughout the region as a jazz musician. My debut novel, China Sea, portrays a plot and settings derived from my experience.
