My newest novella, FREDO’S SECRET, was a Christmas present to my readers. One comment I loved yesterday from a reader was, “Fredo’s Secret was the book I didn’t realize I needed.”
Fredo grew up poor in a rough neighborhood near LA. He isn’t as handsome as some of his SEAL brothers, but he wound up with Mia, the most beautiful of all the SEAL wives. Mia is Armando’s (the sniper on SEAL Team 3) little wild child sister, and he spent the first four books loving her from afar while she mistreated him and wickedly turned down all his advances. They finally get together in Book 5, Cruisin For a SEAL.
With his unibrow, wide nose and ruddy complexion, Fredo has always been a fan favorite. I can’t tell you how many letters I’ve received from fans asking when he’d have his own book. There are a lot of things that a writer does to get into a character, and after writing this novella, now I can write his full length book. But it took me over two years to get there!
It was a pleasure to bring the novella to my readers. And I decided to have it recorded by my world-class storyteller and best friend, J.D. Hart, so readers could enjoy Fredo in audio as well. Here is a SoundCloud snippet of this audio recording. Enjoy!
I’m working on Zak and Amy’s story in TRUE NAVY BLUE: ZAK, to be released 2-20-16.
Which character in my SEAL Brotherhood Series would you like to see have his own book next? Two commenters will win a choice of any of my books on audio!
