speaking about “In The Spirit Intended”
This journey that I am undertaking as a Christian writer is a work in progress. With this release of my second book I am continuing to be obedient to the Lord as much as possible.

That being said I am reminded of the fact that with each of us we can attest to the fact that God will in the end see his purpose and mission fulfilled in us. It will come to fruition in the time and season that He has decided. As well He will equip us with what it is that we need to be of service

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.

speaking about “2019-Top Female Author - Empty Seats”
They were all stars in their hometowns. Then they were drafted to play minor league ball, thinking it would be an easy ride to playing in the big time. Little did they know that they’d be vying for a spot with every other talented kid who aspired to play professional baseball. Young, inexperienced, immature, and without the support of their families and friends, they’re often faced with split-second decisions. Not always on the baseball diamond.
speaking about “Only One Woman”
Two women, one love story. June 1968. Renza falls head over heels for heartthrob guitarist Scott. But after a romantic summer together they are torn apart when Renza’s family moves away. December 1968. On the night she believes to be her last, Stella meets Scott at a local dance. He’s the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and if this one night is all they have, she’ll take it.

speaking about “Diamond in the Rough”
Diamond in the Rough is a captivating story about Taylor Green, an attorney who has worked tirelessly to earn everything he has, including his reputation. Married with four children, Taylor is a partner in a thriving practice, as well as a legendary little league coach in a typically American small town. His talent and love for the game is an inspiration to many, but none more than his twelve year old son Skip. When a drastic turn of events devastates his life, an embittered Taylor recluses into anger and self-pity, abandoning his profession and everything else he'd lived for. As a result the whole family suffers, most notably his wife Paula, who deeply loves him despite their bumpy marital past, and Skip, who takes his fathers withdrawal personally. Though others valiantly attempt to encourage Taylor back into a normal life, it's his innate love for baseball and a unique relationship that develops from an unlikely source that pulls the sidelined veteran out of his shell to experience what true compassion is all about. In a journey that takes us beyond being spectators and into the very fabric of life, the author portrays the wonderful unfolding of one mans realistic path to salvation that challenges both those who don't believe in God, and those who do.
speaking about “Science God and You, The Ancient Theory of Everything”
THERE IS ONLY ONE PROBLEM: THE SOLUTION IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE
"The central lesson of quantum physics is clear. There are no independent objects free from consciousness, sitting out there in some pre-existing 'public space.'"
"Jesus taught no theology or dogma. He did not bring religion, but TRUTH. His teaching and his daily demonstrations of healing were entirely spiritual and metaphysical.
They were not religious but are true for EVERYONE on Earth."
There is a reason establishment science has been unable to theorize a bridge between its "material" world of mechanical physics and the ephemeral, quantum world of probabilities. The overarching theory of everything they seek will not be about complex mathematics. Jim Gleeson puts the clues all together for non-scientists and calls it "The Ancient Theory of Everything”.
speaking about “A Cracked Egg”
A Cracked Egg follows the misadventures of Bruce, an educated, sophisticated, well-to-do yet severely malcontent man with a checkered past whose only escape from a loveless marriage is a series of love affairs. After his latest one blows up in his face, he exchanges flirtatious smiles with a young woman he spots on the platform of a commuter train. Although she misconstrues his overtures as an expression of interest in joining her nondenominational Christian Church, he joins under false pretenses only as a ruse to get close to her. This arouses the curiosity of his long time pal, Jimmy, a Private Eye, who decides to stake the place out to ensure Bruce isn't getting involved in anything untoward. When Jimmy becomes suspicious of the church's pastor, he enlists his friend's help in conducting a full investigation. Together they set uncover a series of secrets and scandals which turn the church and their lives upside down.
