“A love story, a spy story, and a great look into Soviet Russia.”
“The Bridge,” tells where and how it all began, for a number of us willing to say yes to adventure. 

“This Bridge” shares actual events with a creative narrative connecting the circumstances for those not familiar with the history under Communist rule in the CCCP.

I loved it!!”. MJB

As they relax, they get called into action to help their friends take on some truly horrible characters.” G.McDermott

“Beyond the Black Stump”

“A pulse-pounding thriller of terrorism in Northern Ireland, threats to the Royal Family, confrontations, all leading towards just retribution.” 
Jack, Mick, Mahaney, and Walking Bear are all enjoying a respite from their career pressures when they are alerted to a possible strike on the Royal Family.

  1. Michael Miller is as tough as his characters. He has lived it and loved it. I’ve known him for many years and watched him evolve into the acclaimed writer he is.
