Thank you for stopping by.  I have a passion for bringing history alive and exploring real human experiences in the context of the past.  My fifth title, TASK FORCE BAUM, will be released by Kensington Publishing in December, 2019.  My other titles are available by clicking on any of the titles below!


A Bitter Rain is the best kind of WWII novel, action-packed, populated by complex characters facing deep moral dilemmas, and historically accurate. I loved it.  

Mark Sullivan, author of #1 Amazon Charts bestseller Beneath a Scarlet Sky.

James D. Shipman's tender, wise novel examines the paradox of human suffering: how irrevocable loss, if we are willing to let it, begets spiritual gain.

Fantastic Fiction
