Below are the details about his two books in addition to an upcoming book.
My first book was The Assassin, which is a Western. It's basically a mystery western about a hired gunfighter who comes into a town and the whole town wonders who he's there for and nobody knows who hired him either. They don't know that he's also hiding a secret of his own. It was considered by a few of the major publishing houses but they ultimately decided that it wouldn't sell. They weren't interested in a new author in a genre that doesn't get a whole lot of shelf space these days. So I decided to publish it on my own. One of the things I decided to do with each book whether it's published on my own or through a publisher is that a portion of each book's proceeds will go to a worth charity. For The Assassin I chose St. Jude Childrens Hospital. At St. Jude, all patients are admitted for treatment without regard for the family's ability to pay. I've been involved with St. Jude for a while, and it really gets to you sometimes seeing a kid fighting for his life battling cancer or some other type of disease. I think it hits home even more for me now that I have a 3 year old daughter, and my wife and I are expecting a baby boy within the next couple weeks. So anything that I can do to help or raise awareness, raise money, whatever it is...it's not even a question of if I can help...you just help however possible...it's the right thing to do.

My second book is Escape, which is a suspense/thriller. It's basically about an accountant who stumbles upon his company cooking the books, who find out about what he's doing, and hire a hitman to kill him. He's then framed for murder, on the run from a hitman, along with the FBI. It's published by Maverick Spur Publishing. Proceeds from this book benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I decided on this charity because most everyone has been affected in some way by cancer or breast cancer, whether it's a mother, sister, friend, wife...and my wife's mom had breast cancer, which she beat, so it's another charity where I just feel like you have to help in some way to try and beat this stuff.
I have another book coming out soon, another western, called Bounty Hunter. I haven't decided on a charity yet, there's so many good ones to choose from, but I do want to help animals also, kids, cancer, or if any of your readers have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
This contest ends Oct 31st. I will choose the winners November 1st.
