A Smaller War is intended to be the first in the series of Ted Bean books.  For those who haven't yet read  The Port Director [he said hopefully], it is set in the early 2000's and deals with post-9/11 conflicts as Ted and his wife track down terrorists.  A Smaller War is set in the Vietnam War era, and takes Ted from high school and a taste of college to a tour in the Army.   Learning about love in the least likely places, he ultimately finds himself on a Quixotic mission to defend the country from peace activists. The Witnesses' Wounds involves Ted with the New York Mafia and the Watergate cover up.  There are more to come as Ted is swept along with the tides and passions of history.

I've got two completed novel manuscripts sitting on the shelf while I try to find an agent and/or publisher.
