“Pick the Time and Place for Action”


A couple of reviews: the Netflix series “Spycraft” and. . . Black Widow! And some readings from another story in Spy Flash III: The Moscow Rules, “Pick the Time and Place for Action,” which features the return of Olga Lubova. Where did she go? You’ll have to read the story!

“Lull Them into a Sense of Complacency”


Moscow Rule number seven’s story introduces two hapless SVR officers given the task of following Cybill Fleming in Moscow. A beta reader called the two officers the “Keystone KGB”–so you get some humor amid all the drama. Enjoy!

“Vary Your Pattern” & “Stay Within Your Cover”


The next Moscow Rule is “Vary Your Pattern and Stay Within Your Cover”–again a somewhat long and cumbersome story title, so I wrote two stories. “Vary Your Pattern” takes us back to the early 1990s when Edwin Terrell, Jr. is still alive and Mai and Alexei are struggling to accustom their lives, personal and professional, to raising Alexei’s granddaughter Natalia. “Stay Within Your Cover” is an examination of debating whether or not to do the right thing. If you don’t someone might die; if you do, your cover’s blown. Spy Flash III: The Moscow Rules launches in 10 days.

Assume Nothing


Assume nothing–the first Moscow Rule, and the first story in my new collection, Spy Flash III: The Moscow Rules. Hear some excerpts and learn about the special preorder price.

Another Novella?


This episode features the second novella published in 2015, My Noble Enemy–where I, gasp, kill off a character. A bit of a warning: adults discussing sexual situations and some sexual innuendo; nothing explicit.
