A TALE OF TWO COVERS: Book two of the
Detective Series is out in paperback. The kindle and audio editions will be available to the public on November 24th.
Currently I am using the cover to the left, but I'm leaning toward switching to the cover on the right, which for me seems to be saying more by saying less.
Check out the book!
THE DETECTIVE SERIES
Murder, lust and gold made me to write this series. Buried treasure had a bit to do with it as well, truth be told. I vacationed on the remote Danish island of Bornholm, and found myself up to my eyeballs in the same fantastic story that Dan Brown used in The Da Vinci Code. Nicolas Cage was chasing the same treasure in the movie National Treasure.
Friday the 13th, to this day, is considered unlucky. That belief began because Friday the 13th was the day the king sent his henchmen to slaughter the Templar knights. But much of the tremendous wealth had vanished with many of the Templar royalty. Nothing helps a legend survive like talk of treasure that vanished.
Gold discovered: In the 1960's gold coins were discovered on Bornholm and traced to the kings who began the Templar order. The Templar had also left five mysterious churches on the island, about which the BBC made a documentary.
A crooked pope, something mysterious discovered in Jerusalem, lust for wealth, a treasure that vanished, murder and torture, and a noble order of knights who created Chartres Cathedral, and went to tremendous lengths to hide a five-sided star in plain sight, as if they wanted to shout something to the world, what more is needed to make a great detective series?
I began the Detective Series by asking myself: What would happen if what the Templar discovered in Jerusalem, an artifact that could shake the world, turned up in LA, in the hands of grieving widow? That is where The Templar Map began.
