Summary:

Eva, an assassin for one of the most secretive organizations on the planet, lives a life surrounded by death and danger. But for Eva, it is a life she understands. Never has she failed. Never has she faltered. However, when faced with the deepest betrayal, the predator finds herself the prey. And all the things she once thought she could see clearly are blurred by the fog of deceit. As the pieces fall into place and secrets are revealed, her world is shattered. And her enemies are determined to see that she carries those secrets to the grave.

Russell: How did you come to be interested in the JET Series Kindle World?

Brian: I had just finished a novel and had some time before I needed to start the next. I was considering writing outside of my normal genre to give my mind a breather from swords, dragons, and magic, when you announced the Jet Kindle World. I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to expand and diversify. And I must admit, I’ve had a great time.

Russell: Tell us how your story links to the JET Series. Characters, setting, specific event? Is there any crossover or meetings between your characters and any of the original characters?

Brian: Our story introduces a brand new character – Eva. I thought the readers might enjoy it more if I added to the world rather than write a continuation of the Jet story. It takes you back before the first book when Jet is still in the Mossad and Ariel (David) is not completely settled at his position. He and Jet have not known one another long and there is no romance between them (though there is attraction). Actually Jet and Ariel are secondary characters in this story and only make brief appearances. Eva is the primary focus.

Russell: The JET Series books are fast-paced action and adventure stories. What genre(s) do you explore in your story?

Brian: Action/Adventure primarily. But there is plenty of intrigue and various plot twists which I hope will keep the readers on their toes.

Russell: The JET series has been set all over the world… the Middle East, Asia, South American, the Caribbean, etc. Tell us about where you set your story, and why?

Brian: There are multiple locations. I needed to move from scene to scene in order to tie the plot together and I couldn’t do that with a single location. They include – Tel Aviv, St. Petersburg, London, and New York.

Russell: Tell us a little about your main character(s). Why do you think readers will like him/her/it?

Brian: Eva is a world class assassin who works for a secret organization that does the jobs governments can’t be seen doing. Much like Jet herself, she is at the top of her profession and a very dangerous woman. As to why people will like her…well she sexy, dangerous, intelligent, did I mention sexy? Anyway, I like her.

Russell: Did you decide to include any of the main characters from JET (Jet / Maya, Matt or Hannah?) If so, Why?

Brian: I did, but only in a few scenes. I liked David from the first book, and thought he might make an interesting addition being that I was prequeling Jet. As for Jet herself, I added her to give more dimension to the story and to Eva.

Russell: What major theme comes across the clearest in your story? Is this a theme found consistently in your other works?

Brian: Theme? Nothing that jumps out at me. Just a fun romp with a dash of conspiracy, a pinch of betrayal, and a splash of blood.

Russell: Share some of your story about becoming a writer.

Brian: Oh geez…it will have to be the short version. I had never taken writing seriously until my son came to me with the idea for a fantasy story and asked me to write it for him. After hearing his idea, I enthusiastically said I would. The resulting book ended up launching my career and taking me places I’ve never imagined I could go. Since the release of that first novel I have followed it up with seven more and now can proudly say I write for a living. So, basically, I owe it all to my son.

Russell: Do you have a background related to your writing? Interests?

Brian: As primarily a fantasy writer it’s difficult to actually DO the things I write about. I suppose I could start wandering around and slashing bad guys with swords, but that probably wouldn’t end well. As far as interests…naps. Whiskey and naps. Food and naps. Just about anything that leads to a nap afterward. Aside from that, I play piano, enjoy chess, sports, I’m certainly a sci-fi/fantasy geek, and I love history. Okay…now that I realize how boring I am, I need a nap.

Russell: JET is set in a world where many governments including Israel and the U.S. have covert operations including false flag and assassinations. Do you believe this is really the world we live in? If so, what are your thoughts on the future?

Brian: I think if we really knew what went on behind the scenes it would scare the hell out of us. It’s probably best we don’t know, otherwise it would drive us insane with fear. Damn it! I frightened myself. Time for a nap.

Russell: What are you working on next, aside from the novella in the JET Series Kindle World?

Brian: Right now I’m working on Book Three in the Dragonvein series along with Book One in a new series – Akiri.
