From a Constitutional Republic to a Marxist Dictatorship led by a Muslim President in a Second American Civil War 


The chronicle of the main character in both novels, Steven Vandorol started in El Paso Sunrise, a Novel, where, as a lawyer in El Paso, the second largest city on the Texas – Federal Republic of Mexico border,  he’s being hunted by a team of terrorist assassins and shadowy sinister forces determined to kill Steven, who was just appointed as special prosecutor in a massive and most pervasive government border conspiracy and corruption case.


 “Kill him,” the hushed gravelly, almost hoarse voice said on the speaker to the four assassins slouched around the rough-hewn oak table, three of them sipping Stolichnaya vodka straight, while the fourth drank hot tea.  They were the cream of the Russian and Muslim terrorist assassination squads infiltrating America and Canada, and were on the way to El Paso to kill lawyer Steven Vandorol.  Steven had just been appointed special prosecutor and was leading the Texas prosecution of a massive and most pervasive Federal government border corruption and conspiracy with national implications before the fall presidential elections.

So began last year’s powerful new thriller, El Paso Sunrise, a Novel, that riveted the reader’s immediate attention right into the start of a Second American Civil War.

It also begins a grand story of love, passion, intense hate, violence and horror, all brought keenly alive against the panorama of the radical transformation of America by radical, insidious and cancerous forces – forces that threaten to annihilate and destroy the very fabric of the American Dream and way of life of our beloved Constitutional Republic.

El Paso Sunrise, a Novel, is the first of two stand-alone novels that together also tell a story of the intentional radical transformation of America in a Second American Civil War by progressives, Muslim radicals and the American Left from a Constitutional Republic to a Marxist dictatorship.  It is also a portrayal of a future with the literal choking of Canada, Great Britain, Europe, and the Middle East, particularly the sovereign State of Israel by Islamist radicals, ISIL, Hezbollah, Hamas and the spreading cancerous malignancy of a worldwide Muslim Caliphate.

Steven Vandorol, the main character, had it all, but lost everything, when he fell hard from grace in the ultra-rich Sunbelt.  Escaping to Washington, D.C., he found himself embroiled in evil, corruption, sexual obsession and addiction but, confronting his own demons, found peace and serenity in El Paso.  

But not for long…


In El Paso Sunrise, Steven’s short-lived peace and serenity he finally earned for himself in El Paso, was suddenly, and most violently, shattered, when he found himself with a bright red bulls-eye target on his back – a contract assassination, for what on the surface was believed to be for political reasons, and was apparently ordered from deep within the corrupt and transformational Washington, D.C. White House – but was really the forerunner of a Second American Civil War and direct invasion and attack on the continental United States by Chinese and Russian communist and radical Muslim terrorist forces on American’s vulnerable southern underbelly – the Texas border with the Federal Republic of Mexico.

The novel begins with Steven, at the forefront of this momentous special prosecution, and his best friend, Eddie Egen, El Paso Police Chief and member of his special prosecution team, narrowly surviving attempts to assassinate them – all several close brushes with violent death – and ends with a massive, disruptive and totally unexpected cliff-hanger that leaves the reader in shock, surprise and breathless suspense to await what’s to come next…


Then, the Steven Vandorol saga continues in the much anticipated El Paso Sunset, a Novel, to be published this fall, where stunning Vanessa Carson, Steven’s attorney friend and confidant amid the evil and total corruption of Washington, D.C. brings her sunshine smile back into his life in El Paso.  Then, together as one, they face their worst nightmares of rape, kidnapping and murder during the ultimate crises of a Second American Civil war started by dark, sinister, shadowy and powerful forces and only Steven and Vanessa stand in their way.

While El Paso Sunrise and the continuation, El Paso Sunset, are together a graphic story of slavish evil in this world, they are also a timeless love story and about goodness, faith, grace and friendships blossoming during a national emergency – a clarion call to the world to remember what truly matters, asking the question:

Can Steven force his own country and government to face their own demons before it is too late?

El Paso Sunrise and El Paso Sunset are together not only one explosive psychological and most timely political thriller…


But it’s more than just that!  It’s also a totally entertaining roller coaster ride of thrilling suspense and fast paced action…and a story of desperate personal survival that ultimately becomes a grand and timeless story of personal transformation, passion, great love, friendship, and true intimacy!

On a deeper level El Paso Sunrise and its continuation, El Paso Sunset, tell a story of excruciating pain of escapism and addiction, crisis and survival and the final triumph of faith, grace, love and commitment.  As a story of complex emotions, vulnerability and tenderness, intimacy and feeling, it draws darkly profound conclusions that are astonishing and provocative, yet exhilaratingly joyous.

While the two novels are primarily a timeless love story, much of the factual background for the novels is from Steve Emerson’s The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), especially the use of the indictment and the Federal conspiracy prosecution and proceedings in the 2014 Federal District Court case in Dallas, Texas, that resulted in Hamas, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other terror organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood, being placed on the State Department’s list of active terrorist organizations.

Finally, the two novels together depict the cancerous and insidious corruption of government, education, religion, the family and culture in America by a variety of bad actors, that are fueled by a corrupt, propaganda “fake” news main-stream media, that subverted all that was good and turned into abject evil…and also most timely depicts the crumbling and addictive American culture and society, both in America and in this chaotic, turbulent, corrupt and evil world that professes a religion of selfishness, lust, power, control and greed…all of which is slowly killing America and would continue in the rest of the world unabated until the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
