Task Force Baum is a guts-and-glory novel of WWII, based on a true story, told with all the fire and fury of the war.  Life-and-death stakes keep the reader glued to the page . . . A striking testament to the glory of the "Greatest Generation."  V.S. Alexander, author of The Traitor.  

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
