Breached is a novel about adults surviving personal betrayal. .
Norm Dennison dies of an apparent shooting accident before he can prove to the homeowners around Lake Hannah that Vernon Brost, a developer, has launched an elaborate scheme to defraud them. The threat to Brost’s plans does not go away with Dennison’s death, however, as Dennison’s widow turns over the dead man’s files to Art Nichols, a Lake Hannah resident and a friend of the retired detective, James Raker. Thugs ransack Nichols’ home to recover the documents. Not finding them, they decide to break into Raker’s home where they are surprised by Raker’s girl friend, Diane Welborn. Welborn is knocked unconscious and the house is set ablaze. Together Nichols, a Viet Nam veteran, and Raker begin tracking down the intruders. Welborn is hospitalized in serious condition. While in a coma, she recalls her painful childhood, her unsuccessful first marriage and her struggles to find fulfillment after her divorce. Raker and Nichols stay in pursuit of the men who attacked Welborn in hopes of spoiling the swindle and bringing the men to justice..I am a Midwesterner by birth. Yankton, South Dakota, is my hometown. I graduated from high school there in 1957. After four years earning degree in English at St. John’s University (MN), I became a teacher. My first wife, Elaine Finfrock, also of Yankton, and I had five children; four sons and a daughter. We divorced in 1977.
In 1986, Melinda Folger McLeod and I were married and I gained a stepson, Matthew. Currently, we divide our time each year between our cabin New West Jefferson, NC and our cottage in Southport, NC near the Cape Fear River. I enjoy golf, music, and reading history. Since my retiring I have focused on my writing, an avocation throughout my life. In 2010, I completed my first novel, Deadly Portfolio: A Killing Hedge Funds and the sequel, Breached was published August 2014.

“We want to interrogate the guy now. We’ll ask him how he got it. You want to watch on the monitors? I’m not expecting we’re going to get very far with this guy, but you never can tell. He didn’t volunteer anything when we brought him in. He knows he’s in big trouble. The deputies went out with warrants to his double-wide. A girl was there. She had to let them in. They found over a 1,000 grams of meth stashed away. He must’ve picked up a delivery recently.”
