AIDS activists resort to terrorism in the action-packed mystery SOULS ON FIRE. In Austin, Texas, circa 1985, terrorists attack a bank and slaughter innocent civilians while stealing cash. Their motivation for this and later assaults is not devotion to a religion, not revenge for some event, nor out of greed. Their outrage stems from the police and society treating them as less than human. They have AIDS. They have decided to follow the Viking belief that it’s better to die in battle than helplessly in bed. The violence escalates and soon copycat attacks happen in other American cities. Will authorities capture or stop these terrorists before more attacks paralyze the city? Buy SOULS ON FIRE to enjoy a fast-paced thriller and discover the surprising conclusion.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
SOULS ON FIRE is a follow-up to my book TAX BREAK. However, the topics and events in SOULS comes from remembering some news articles about AIDS protests in the 80s. One thing that stood out was that the police wore gloves because they were scared to death they'd get AIDS just touching the protestors. This attitude just inflamed the protestors more and often led to some violent confrontations. So I had that in the back of my mind and when I began thinking about a new book, the idea sprang from there. Basically, the idea was "well, what if these protestors kicked it up a notch?"
