My thanks to Susan Hampson at Books From Dusk Till Dawn for reviewing my novel A Light in the Desert.
“All of the main characters in the story have major issues with their lives and find it hard to be accepted into society … One of them wanted to be forgotten for what he had done, one wanted to be remembered for what he would do and the other just wanted acceptance for who she was.” Susan Hampson Books From Dusk Till Dawn

As a Vietnam veteran and former Special Forces sniper descends into the throes of mental illness, he latches onto a lonely pregnant teenager and a group of Pentecostal zealots – the Children of Light – who have been waiting over thirty years in the Arizona desert for Armageddon. When the Amtrak Sunset Limited, a passenger train en route to Los Angeles, is derailed in their midst in a deadly act of sabotage, their lives are thrown into turmoil. As the search for the saboteurs heats up, the authorities uncover more questions than answers. And then the girl vanishes. As the sniper struggles to maintain his sanity, a child is about to be born in the wilderness.
