speaking about “The Adventures of Sir Locke the Gnome”
speaking about “Wordshine Man”
I'm an author (5 books) and writer of countless articles and a weekly blog at MaddenMischief.com. Partly writing is a therapy to get things off my chest that disturb me or impress me that I have to write about. In the PR firm I started when I left NBC, I'm forever "polishing" press releases, media pitches, PR proposals. "Dad, can you polish this, meaning can I make it more effective, engaging, inspiring. So I polish . . . and polish words, sentences, paragraphs, hence came my latest book WORDSHINE MAN about how to make writing inviting.

speaking about “Come and See: An Invitation to Reclaim Your Life's Balance”
Come and See is not a self-help book—just the opposite. It is an invitation to consider a solution that demands: no achievements, striving, or, performance hurdles. The book explores: a) taking charge of the regrets from your past, b) healing from emotional and spiritual disillusionment, c) the power of forgiveness—for yourself and others. This book offers you a solution to the emotional vertigo you are feeling but cannot identify. Come and See proposes a cure that is candid, somewhat uncomfortable and quite possible scary. This book does not preach, judge, or emotionally manipulate, but rather, respectfully proposes a surprising solution to women’s disequilibrium allowing grace and forgiveness to be felt again…or perhaps for the first time.
speaking about “NOC Three Times: Knock-On Effect ”
"Due to censorship restrictions, a veteran of Britain’s MI6 intelligence service tells a fictionalized version of his covert action experiences" Publishers Weekly
In my days there were five classified UK Eyes Only security clearance levels. The higher you went up the secrecy ladder, the less people knew about you... I held the highest security clearance level a British intelligence officer could reach. This book, the third in the NOC Trilogy covers my last five years in the field being in charge of the 'uncammo' (not in uniform) unit of the special forces, 2003-2007, which encompassed the Iraqi War and being in the field in Afghanistan, Somalia and The Yemen, among others.
For obvious reasons I must remain anonymous. I am a British citizen and a 20-year veteran of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). I did three tours of duty, first serving in 1971-1983. I was recalled into active duty in 1992-1993 and 2003-2007, and volunteered for one more operation in 2008 after retirement. Since that time I have been granted political asylum in France, where I now reside.
The first two books are: “NOC - Non-Official Cover: British Secret Operations and NOC Twice: More UK Non-Official Cover Operations.

Those changes wrought challenges for everyone.
