About the Book

For over three hundred years the peoples of the First Nations have tried to live peaceably with the white man. But by the beginning of the new millennium, after many generations have seen their lands, their resources--indeed their very ability to govern themselves--evaporate before their eyes, a new breed of aboriginal decides enough is enough. A well-trained and deadly clandestine warrior group--the Haudenosaunnee Brigade--is launched and proceeds to wreak havoc across the country. The pressure on the government to do something comes to rest on the shoulders of RCMP Chief Superintendent Kevin Mowry and his Counter Terrorist Branch. As events race toward their explosive climax, Mowry is faced with nagging doubts about the loyalty of his good friend, Gerry McNight, who heads up counter terrorist operations at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and on whom Mowry depends for essential information about his adversary. McNight is half Mohawk.

In 1995 his first novel, Nations Within, was published in Ottawa by Centurion Publishing & Marketing. In 1997 one of his stories, "Rapture," was included in Winning Shorts, an anthology published by General Store Publishing House. The author currently lives in Alliston, Ontario with his wife, an accomplished artist.
