I'm the author of THE FINAL MISSION OF EXTORTION 17 (Septembr 19, 2017, published by Smithsonian Books and distributed by Penguin Random House), the critically-acclaimed VICTORY POINT (published by the Penguin Group, New York; named a book of the year by the United States Naval Institute) and three other books (two about mountaineering and one about expedition sea kayaking). I'm currently hard at work on a number of incredibly exciting fiction and non-fiction book projects; please check the Books and Upcoming sections for more information and updates.
