WAR OF THE SUBMARINE

2037: Underwater exploitation has changed the world. Every nation wants territory, and no one wants war. The world spins closer to war, and Alex Coleman never wanted to be a hero…but the enemy always gets a vote. 


A band of modern-day pirates station-hops across the Indian Ocean. Each attack bolder and more costly than the last, these pirates leave behind a trail of broken bodies, businesses, and stolen submarines at every undersea station they visit—and it’s up to Lieutenant Commander Alex Coleman and USS Kansas (SSN 810) to stop them. Novella length – not included in the serial.

Every nation wants territory, and no one wants war…until someone sinks a civilian submarine. Trying to save that sub throws Alex’s career down the crapper and makes the U.S. everyone’s favorite scapegoat. Exile to Armistice Station leaves him bored and useless—until a hostile takeover puts him right in the middle of the action. Alex Coleman is no hero. Heroes don’t explode coffee creamer fireballs and hijack cruise ships. 

On Amazon in e-book, paperback, and hardcover.


Enemy subs are fast, their torpedoes are faster, and both are quieter than ever before.  Driving around in the oldest attack submarine in the Navy means Alex knows that better than anyone. Jimmy Carter still has life left in her, but proving that to his superiors is the hard part. His boat keeps getting relegated to convoy duty while newer boats take the fight to the enemy…and die doing it. Meanwhile, Alex juggles his misfit crew with a commodore who wants to rip his boat out from under him and send her to the breakers. All he wants is one chance. Just one. 

Because no one ever taught Alex Coleman how to quit.

Book 3: Fire When Ready

World War III is going badly for the U.S. Navy, and submariners who make history rarely come home. Alex Coleman’s boat is old enough to drink and his crew a few beers short of a six pack. But he has to find a way to pull them together before embarking on a dangerous mission into the undersea wild west to rescue a group of scientists who might be able to change the course of the war.  

Preorder now for release on 26 September 2023. Featuring all-new scenes and a new epilogue not included in the serial!


By 2039, the United States is a year and a half into World War III. Submarine meets submarine beneath the waves, and one out of every three American subs deployed isn’t coming home. Commander Kurt Kins and USS Darter, however, seem to have a magic touch—they’ve been among the best of the best from the start.

Kins loves action and he’s never backed down from a challenge. Faced with clever Russian enemies who are out to make their nation a superpower once more, he knows he has his work cut out for him. But that’s all right with Commander Kins. He’s out to be the top American submariner in the war…or die trying.
