Her letter stuck with me over the years while I went on and wrote other books, like Deadline and Christmas Blackout. Zack Keats was about forty years old by now. His dark hair was greying at the temples and he'd had a long, proud career serving his country and stopping villains in some of the world's most dangerous war zones. What's more, he was a confident, laid back kind of guy and had always seemed happily single to me. What was this reader seeing in Zack that I'd missed? What story might be lurking in his past? Who would the special woman be to unlock the soldier's heart?
So, last year I sat down to tackle these questions and now Zack Keats is coming back in a new, high action, fast paced adventure this May called Tactical Rescue, that reunites the cast of characters from Killer Assignment. I hope that reader enjoys it and is happy with how the Special Forces hero gets his Happily Ever After.
And if you've ever wondered if writers like me enjoy your letters or if they make a difference to us here's the proof they do. I look forward to hearing what you all think of the story and your suggestions of what characters I've created so far whose stories you'd like to see continue.
