It wasn't without problems. It was demanding and dangerous. Denver Stone and his team knew it, but did it anyway. Someone had to take the streets back from the drug runners, and his unsanctioned team of law enforcement officers stepped up. A story of action, intrigue, humor and romance. "Credible Justice."

There are reasons why authors are drawn to certain characteristics of people they know, have become aware of, or simply wish for someone to exist for them and the readers. Inevitably the writer and the reader can become attached to an individual, and thus wanting them to be influential within a story.
My "Credible Justice" books, of which two are now published; contain several lead characters.This is because of the team work involved in such a daring and controversial escapade. As I write this, I am reminded of someone who advised me to write about the adventures of an individual, as opposed to a number of characters. The reason for this, being that it is difficult to outline the on going actions of several people at the same time, and keep the readers locked in.
I understand that, and it is true, when my storyline, as it often does, requires moments of action, it is harder to put it all together, and describing the efforts of everyone. However, the challenge is there through necessity, and I wasn't willing to compromise my reasons for writing about such a team in search for justice. It means something to me, from my past and my present. I hope that you do enjoy the books, and that the story can fuel your imagination enough, to be able to carry the day.
Now, talking about the characters. In past blogs I have mentioned Denver Stone, his strengths and weaknesses.His toughness in the field, and his nervousness in romance. Stone would be the first to say, that his prime partner at work, Tyson Cross, is the rock he can lean on.
What do we need to know about him? Ty Cross, is a 6' 2'', African American; a picture of power and strength. He was brought up in Antelope Valley, in Los Angeles County. Struggling to find happiness at home and hiding a secret, he joined the Marine Corps, doing his basic training at Camp Pendleton. As he progressed, he joined the Marine Special Operations Regiment, which changed back to the Marine Raider Regiment, as a throwback in time to WWII. In Iraq, after several operations, he was assigned as a tactical driver to the Ambassador and visiting dignitaries. After leaving the service, he joined Homeland Security and was attached to London, in part, to set up the American end of the partnership with the Brits, in the new, but unofficial team.
Cross has his issues to cope with too, but is invaluable to the people he works with and protects. Perhaps his biggest operational fault, is that he often takes risks ahead of others and has to be reminded that firearms are the last resort. Although that has become increasingly difficult to adhere to, as the story moves from book 1 and into book 2.
I hope this insight helps you understand him, and I hope you will get to know more about him, and particularly his issues, but I can't give too much away on that point.
Thank you all again for supporting my writing, in which ever way you do. Remember any profits for "Credible Justice: Fighting Back," is for charity.
