Jim Coleman has no idea what to do with his life. He joins the Marine Corps in 1962 on a whim. He makes history by shooting perfect at Parris Island. Jim has become the only marine ever to accomplish this feat. This will unknowingly change his life in the Marines forever.

He meets a Naval Officer, Commander Forrest Damon who is the military liaison with the CIA in Washington. A new life begins as he goes on Temporary Duty with the CIA. Jim joins the most elite section of the CIA. It is so secretive that it’s only known by the most powerful and influential men in the government.

What does the CIA have in mind for him? Where will they send him? From Southeast Asia to the Caribbean. Surrounded by the underworld in the Deep South, Jim fights his demons every day. Only he knows what is constantly in his dreams.

Jim tries to come to grips with his beliefs and teachings but it is so difficult. With every assignment, he goes deeper and deeper into the other life.

Book Trailer:


1. How do you get inspired to write?

When I wake up in the morning if I don't feel like writing I don't. I think about a lot of things but never put them down on paper. I've been blessed with a great memory and a even bigger imagination.

2. What are you currently working on?

I am currently in the middle of the second book of the trilogy. I have found that this book is much harder than the first one. I am a perfectionist and I want this book, "A Shooter's Moon" to be much better and more exciting than the first one, "Tears of an Assassin."

3. What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Don't ever give up is the advice I have for aspiring writers. Don't listen to the negative. Think positive when you're writing and always try your best even if it comes slower than you think it should. If this is what you want to do with your life, don't let anyone talk you out of it.

4. Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

I spent six years in the Marine Corps and two years in Vietnam. I saw a lot of stuff going on before the Vietnam War and even more during the war. It's something that I thought should be told and to put a story to it even makes it much better.
