I've authored a wide range of books, including the critically acclaimed THE WARRIORS OF ANBAR (published in November, 2019 by Hachette Book Group) which documents the incredible story of victory over Al Qaeda in Iraq by U.S. Marines, the photography book WAR MOMENTS (published in 2019 by Amherst Media), a collection of my best photographs I shot of the U.S. military and the story behind each. I'm also the author of THE FINAL MISSION OF EXTORTION 17, which documents the downing of a U.S. CH-47D Chinook helicopter, call sign "Extortion 17" in 2011, which was the greatest single-incident loss of life in the War in Afghanistan. I've also just completed three novels, two the first of a series and one a standalone. I feel very strongly that readers throughout the world will find these works gripping, thought provoking, and utterly captivating - for a number of reasons.
I've authored four previous books, the most recent being VICTORY POINT, which documents two historically pivotal military operations in eastern Afghanistan. Victory Point, published by the Penguin Publishing Group of New York (hardcover released in 2009 and paperback in 2010) was chosen as a book of the year by the United States Naval Institute. My first book, nominated for a Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature, chronicled my solo climb of Mount McKinley (Denali), the highest mountain in North America and one of the coveted "Seven Summits." My second book chronicled my 850 mile solo sea kayak journey along the Sea of Cortez coastline of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula through my narrative, photographs, and maps, and my third book documented mountaineering expeditions to the highest mountains of South America, including a successful ascent of Aconcagua, the highest mountain in South America, and like Denali (Mount McKinley), one of the Seven Summits.   
All of my books, including those now out of print, are available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com
