What inspired you to write this book?

Two things, a report into bulling in the Armed Forces and the need to shine a light on at least some of the horrible things that are happening in Myanmar. You know – cheerful stuff!

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?

Yes, in my newsletter, which you can sign up for here: XXXXX I am writing about one of the returning characters in the series, Corporal Richard Lancing. He’s a young man, who considers himself straight until he meets Blue. A cyber terrorist turned reluctant white hat and working for the UK Government. They will play a larger role in the next book, Firepoint.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Final Play?

I can. It’s first person and told from Nick Wilde’s point of view. He’s a private in the SAS (UK Special Air Service). He’s a big man, but not handsome – in his eyes at least. He’s being badly bullied by his commanding officer and decides to save a US Army Ranger from certain death. He is noble, quiet, kind, heroic in a gentle way and deeply compassionate. I think he’s my favourite in the series.

Gabriel Cabrera is the US Ranger he saves. Gabriel is beautiful, strong, determined and stubborn. He’s also flawed. He can be hard, callous even, and wants to learn to be a better man – a man with a heart. He falls in love with Nick and despite the terrifying odds, Gabe finds a way for them to be together so he’s no longer alone.

Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?

The same thing makes both men tick – a strong sense of obligation and justice. They signed their lives away to their countries and they want to do right by that oath. They will also protect each other no matter what they face.

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

I know exactly who will play Gabriel: Santiago Cabrera (Yes, I even stole the surname).
Nick’s a bit harder… Someone able to pull off that gentle giant who can shoot to kill and isn’t too pretty… Suggestions on a postcard please! ☺

What is your favorite part of this book and why?

Oh, the ending – it’s so romantic – the most romantic ending I’ve ever written I think.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

Colonel Elizabeth Brant – she’s a tough but fair commander and despite being in her early fifties she’s on the ground with her boys helping to save the day. The adventures she’s had… And before anyone thinks that’s too old to being this stuff – come talk to me because I’m not that far off!

Final Play
Shadow Ops: Charlie

Fortune's Soldier
Shadow Ops: Alpha 

Fortune is a fickle bastard for a soldier, Luke Sinclair knows that more than most.

As a Special Forces Operative he finished his career with an elite British black ops department in Military Intelligence. As tough as it had been, Luke loved his job and his partner, Sam Locke. Sam had once been a US Navy SEAL.

Being a mercenary gives Luke freedom of movement even if he cannot escape his memories.

When their world fell apart, Luke thought he would never see Sam again, until they are recalled to London and sent to Syria. They must transport the one person able to finish tearing them apart. A terrorist who destroyed their lives. Luke and Sam fight to save the world from imminent destruction and fight just as hard for each other.

From the deserts of Syria the men chase a nuclear bomb and weaponised virus through Armenia and into Russia, finding so much more than revenge on the way.
