The San Joaquin Siren: An American Ace in WWII’s CBI

The San Joaquin Siren: An American Ace in WWII’s CBI was a third place winner in the 2011 Sharp Writ Book Awards. Bill Behrns and the late Kenneth Moore won this award in the Autobiography / Memoirs category.

The San Joaquin Siren is the true account of one of America’s heroes of WWII. Bill Behrns served in the China, Burma, India (CBI) region of the Pacific war. The U.S. Army Air Corps sent thirty-two pilots from thirty-two states in twenty-five Lightnings into this remote area. It would seem they were expendable since the loss of a single pilot would scarcely be noticed in any single state. According to Air Force intelligence reports, this newly-formed, 459th Squadron, 80th Fighter Group faced approximately 550 enemy aircraft. This was the only unit of its kind in the war. Click here to order

Daniel T. Denman Author- GRISLY-BAR CROSSING

GRISLY-BAR CROSSING

by Daniel T. Denman

Never before had four, female, foreign operatives been kidnapped on American soil! And now, one by one, the attractive heroines were found dismembered at the Crossing. Several FBI teams were investigating these terrifying murders – copycat crimes of yesteryear. The killings were so foul, so grisly, the town had been named Grisly-Bar Crossing after these unspeakable, resurfacing murders!

Two FBI teams advanced on the mansion that held the abducted agents and their captors: a nearly mad woman seeking revenge and her crafty daughter. The villains planned to use the agents as bait. What they could not understand was why the military was so interested in the powerful force their heir had left behind – a force that would alter wars forever!

Prior to this vengeful plot, 6,000 Americans had received an unusual warning in the form an identical dream! All recorded and repeated the revelation verbatim and became known as the dream keepers. Some feared they would be labeled “insane,” but many were so disturbed by the dream, they contacted their doctors. A consortium of the medical field viewed so many people professing an identical dream as a real concern.

The dream keepers were trying desperately to convince the government and media to release their unified vision. One adamant psychologist (herself a dream keeper) told a newscaster, “It doesn’t make sense! To NOT warn others is . . . is ludicrous!” Miraculously, the scientific and religious communities were in agreement and were trying to discuss the implications of the common, shared dreams. Simplified, the dream claimed: every six months until America wakes up and realizes it was once a blessed nation, an increasing earthquake will ‘rock your very souls!’

Time was running out. There were only two weeks until the first predicted quake would take place. Who delivered this dream and how was it sent? Was this a grand hoax or were too many humans not interested enough to care? Moral decline caused greed and loss for millions, and hope seemed to be one of America’s old adages. There were those who saw this shared dream as revitalization of their once great country, and to the wise individuals, extraordinary achievements were possible. Key in avoiding disaster would be unified acceptance to change. The dream demanded change! Would American citizens see, understand, and accept the lesson?

James A. Martin Author- GUNS FOR HIRE, CODE NAME: WHITE BUFFALO

GUNS FOR HIRE, CODE NAME: WHITE BUFFALO

by James A. Martin

New nations are fragile things. They are often born from the ashes of conflict. The twenty-four-year-long struggle endured by the people of East Timor to live free is no different. Their struggle has come to an end – or has it? The United Nations is helping the Timorese build their new country, but Indonesia has no intention of giving up its former 27th state. The fight to win freedom is over. The fight to keep it has now begun.

The secret war raging on both sides of the new border between East and West Timor is being fought with the weapons of deception, propaganda, and espionage. In the middle of this war is a simple American police officer who has come to help, but instead steps off into the deep end of an intriguing world of spies.

This thrilling prequel to GUNS FOR HIRE, RED ZONE RUN: MOSUL takes us into a fourth world country’s fight for freedom, one which continues today, where freedom seems as elusive as sunlight in triple canopy jungle. Join Jesse as he threads his way through the jungles of East Timor, UN politics, and lack of outside support to play out this game of intelligence for the survival of a people who just want to live free.
