This is a project I’ve been working on for a number of years now, and it’s finally come to fruition! My very first novel: “RIGHTEOUS MIGHT”

The USS Gerald Ford, a modern-day nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is hosting the family and friends of crew members at the end of a long deployment when they are asked to test a new defensive system for DARPA with help from their British and Japanese allies. After a mysterious accident during the test, the entire battlegroup finds itself at Pearl Harbor on December 6, 1941. The fleet is hopelessly outnumbered, but they do still have some modern technology at their fingertips to help even the odds. The captain has only hours to decide whether or not to strike at the approaching Japanese fleet and change the entire course of World War II, all while trying to figure out what life will look like for the sailors and civilians in their fleet after the battle.
