What's Inside

Books, Screenplays, Pix, and More!!


Whats New...

"Terminal Rock"

The new Wes Franklin International Thriller is now available. Please go to the Ordering Info page and click on your preferred format (Paperback or Kindle) to go Amazon.com for your copy. If you are a Kindle owner and borrow books from their lending library, please check the book out in May. I will be asking all Kindle owners to do this in May because I receive royalties based on my percentage of 'borrows' from all borrowers. The new story has all the things you'll love: Rock'n'Roll, murder, and revenge!

My next projects include two 'Wes Franklin' books and one non-fiction. Look for Wes, A.J., and Aryana in "The Billionaires Club" and "The Chronicles of Cain", and the non-fiction WWII love story of Robert and Ruth Shoenthal, "R&R Forever".

The Billionaires Club
When does a man have enough?
…For one man, when he has it all!
On New Year’s Day the richest man in the world is gunned down on the streets of Mexico City and everyone on the Forbes list of billionaires moves up a notch! But in February, March, and April, each successive title holder turns up dead before month’s end and it becomes clear the title has a terrible cost!

In May, despite Wes Franklin’s efforts to protect her, the newly crowned #1 Richest Person is killed, sending a ripple of panic through the global financial community. In a bold move to lure the killer into the open, an enigmatic friend of Wes steps forward to claim the #1 ranking, thus making himself the next target. It is now up to Wes, A.J., and Aryana to make sure this special friend does not become the next former member of the world’s most exclusive group of people…

Why, after so many millenia, has he chosen this time and place to share his story? Because in two day's time...

...cloaked in the guise of a terrorist act, a father takes revenge

for the senseless and brutal death of his son

ForeWord Clarion Review - Four of Five Stars

9 - Reader Reviews

Following a series of deaths around the world from seemingly “natural causes,” the Special Assistant to the Minister President of The Netherlands, Frans Roobeek, recognizes a special link between the list of victims and his American friend, Wes Franklin…all are members of a secret intelligence network—The Cloister of Akhenaten, or Ankh Network—and Wes may soon become the next member to meet his end by “natural causes”!


Wes Franklin emerges from the jungles of Columbia with his technology-savvy girl friend, Ashley Jordan, and his weapons expert and Persian strongman, Aryana, to investigate the deaths. Together, they chase down clues from Holland, Scotland, and Damascus to uncover and foil a diabolical plot to launch an unprecedented wave of terror somewhere in Europe.

"God, I never knew a man who wanted so much to be dead…

or deserved it more.”


ForeWord Clarion Review - Four of Five Stars

24 - Reader Reviews

President Treem, an idealist young president, is determined to change the nuclear face of the world by unilateral example. Vice President George S. Austin, an old-school war hero, is convinced these new policies are both naive and dangerous. Secretary of State Crandall Forsyth, fearing the Vice President is about to take drastic steps to subvert the President’s nuclear agenda, and uncertain how deep the Vice President’s conspiracy runs, turns to the one man outside of the government he can trust—his long-time friend Wes Franklin, a member of an independent international intelligence group known as THE ANKH NETWORK.

Into this central plot steps Jared Kennan Cain, a man with a perfect genetic structure who appears to be immortal. Cain has escaped from The Genetic Discovery Corporation, a Palo Alto-based secret government organization tasked with developing biological weapons systems. Two years of experiments to study Cain’s unique system have been documented in a file labeled THE METHUSELAH MAN. Could he be the ultimate weapon?

"Truth never happens in real time. Events happen, sources are cited, authorities offer up explanations. But 'truth' requires time. Time to shed illusions. Time to fend off lies. Time to evolve. And in the end, after all have had their say, '

truth' will have the last word, and continue to light our way.

"Big Stick diplomacy ensures our safety for only as long as our side has the biggest club. The day those we would dominate obtain their own Big Stick, we should pray our past words were gracious and our past actions benevolent.

If archaeology has taught us anything about ourselves,

it is that we have been slow to learn this lesson."

Behind the scenes of the writer's world...

  • Pics 'n' Flix: Wes Franklin stories take place in the real world and I try to make a concerted effort to describe locations for you in a way that helps you conjur up clear visions of the Wes Franklin terrain. In the Photo Gallery, you will find photos identifying where you will discover these locations in the novels. In addition, I have included a home movie of the Bellagio Fountain (Mac users click here) water show on the Las Vegas Strip, as this is the site of the nuclear climax in The Methuselah Man.

  • Background Research: While the novels are strictly the product of a fertile imagination, I try to include plenty of factual data and events so as to enhance the story's believability. Here, I have provided some of the more interesting things I have come across as my stories have evolved. Where possible, I will include some web links, as well.
