Michael_Golembesky_Afghanistan

– What is your last book Level Zero Heroes: The Story of U.S. Marine Special Operations in Bala Murghab, Afghanistan about?
– It is the first book about Marine Corps Special Operations. In Level Zero Heroes follows the members of U.S. Marine Special Operations Team 8222 on their assignment to the remote and isolated Taliban stronghold known as Bala Murghab as they conduct special operations in an effort to break the Taliban’s grip on the Valley. What started out as a routine mission changed when two 82nd Airborne Paratroopers tragically drowned in the Bala Murghab River while trying to retrieve vital supplies from an air drop that had gone terribly wrong. In this one moment, the focus and purpose of the friendly forces at Forward Operating Base Todd, where Team 8222 was assigned, was forever altered as a massive clearing operation was initiated to break the Taliban’s stranglehold on the valley and recover the bodies.
From close-quarters firefights in Afghan villages to capturing key-terrain from the Taliban in the unforgiving Afghan winter, this intense and personal story depicts the brave actions and sacrifices of MSOT 8222. Readers will understand the hopelessness of being pinned down under a hail of enemy gunfire and the quake of the earth as a 2000 lb. guided bomb levels a fortified Taliban fighting position.
A powerful and moving story of Marine Operators doing what they do best, Level Zero Heroes brings to life the mission of these selected few that fought side-by-side in Afghanistan, in a narrative as action-packed and emotional as anything to emerge from the Special Operations community contribution to the Afghan War.

BRANDY ISAACS: I WAS INSPIRED BY A DREAM THAT A FRIEND HAD

Brandy Isaac’s last book That Which is Lost was published in May. Our next author is having another job to live with, but she is still producing excellent peace of writings. Enjoy our next Q&A.

author
– What is your last book That Which is Lost about?
– I like to call it “a ghost story…with complications.” Talia is haunted by a lot of things–not the least of which is herself.
– How you decide to write the story?
– It was actually inspired by a dream that a friend had. In the dream she was a part of a group of ghost hunters and they resorted to some pretty extreme measures and it grew from there. The end result, That Which Is Lost, didn’t turn out how I expected it too–but I never try force anything I write. I find that when a story is working it starts writing itself–and you have to go with it.

OWEN H. LEWIS: SCI-FI GIVES ME A CLEAN SLATE TO START OVER AGAIN

Owen H. Lewis recently published his debut novel The Mark of Man. He dropped a real estate business in order to concentrate in writing. Let’s hear his story.

OHL

– What is your last book, The Mark of Man, about?
The Mark of Man is a novel about a future where humanity’s cannon of accepted philosophies are challenged and our passive inertia is confronted.
The central premise concerns a mark on the wrist which indicates the date of death of the holder – contrary to previous tales; this is posited as a genetic anomaly. So the race is not a simple chase and pursuit tale from evil overlords with a reliance on the familiar clichés and tenets, but one that concerns the whole of humankind and compels everybody (including the reader) to try to find an answer to this ticking doomsday clock.
The book races along as a first rate adventure yarn with the protagonist counting down the days he has left, whilst trying to come to terms with losing the love of his life. Fate however seems intent on throwing them back together.
The discovery of another Earth like planet gives hope for a solution to ‘The Mark’ and an expedition is mounted. The subsequent settlement is explored in remarkable detail. Political layers are exposed and the society revealed carries real depth, as our characters become intertwined in some of the darker corners of this new world and the secrets it holds.
