Faithful Warrior

A retired Marine turned pastor becomes a reluctant warrior in this explosive thriller from an author who “is fearless in his storytelling” (Scott Sigler, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).

God forgives when we ask sincerely.

Men, not so much.

Self, even less.

And the Dead . . . never.

Pastor Mike Farris loves his family, and loves his flock. Life is good, but to get there he had to traverse a trail of blood. The faces that haunt his nightmares are no longer just specters, and a long-thought-dead enemy is about to unleash a very real hell.

Basil Sands

Author of action packed novels and short stories, Basil's stories have been called "Pulse Pounding" and "Breathtaking". Give them a read and judge for yourself. Basil does not just write stories, but has lived a lot of what they contain. The backdrop for his writing started with his birth in rural interior Alaska and his school years among the Ohio cornfields where he wished to be anywhere else as long as it was exciting. He has lived in Alaska, San Diego, DC, Baltimore, and Ohio. He tried a career in the Marines. After injuries sent him home early he worked at the NSA, owned a computer shop, was a carpenter, farmer, actor, lumberjack, voice actor, EMT, network admin, helpdesk supervisor, Boy Scout leader, IT trainer, radio talk host, youth minister, and was a sergeant in the Alaska Defense Force Coastal Scouts. Until a ski injury in 2008 he had been an avid weight lifter and could bench press 420 lbs. Now he's limited to a bit on the eliptical machine each day and hefting his laptop and an occasional pint of Guinness. He lives in Anchorage Alaska with his wife and sons
