A Light in the Desert is “full of tension and drama. A very good read.”


My thanks to author and blogger Stuart Aken for taking the time to read and review my novel A Light in the Desert.

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.

      Thank you, Arlene. It will soon be 24 years since the Sunset LImited was sabotaged, and still no one knows who did it. A mystery.
