Author Biography

I'm a former U.S. Marine and current SWAT commander. I've chased devils with the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, operated over 25 years in the chaos of critical incidents, and have even contemplated the deeper meaning of life. In my chosen profession you reach an age where you can no longer sustain the demanding operational tempo required, so I've chosen to write based on a little life experience, imagination, and because carpal tunnel seems challenging.

I enjoy carpentry, handyman activities, the outdoors, and spending time with family. I'm looking forward to simpler times in the future and currently live in Birmingham, Alabama. Yes, I love football.

Arklight: Operation Nightfall by JM Myrick is a compelling story involving covert military missions, WWII, time travel, God, and strong religious themes. The Arklight’s Spear Team is a powerful unit in the US military, a group of well-trained professional soldiers who only respond to the executive branch of the government. No one knows how it came to be. Now, this unit is on a secret mission to root out one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, seventy-three years after WWII. But Captain John Steadman and his team find themselves transported to 1943 where they witness a Nazi conspiracy. But what is most shocking is the discovery of a powerful artifact, a weapon linked to Christ — Titulus Crucis. Instead of hunting a terrorist, this team becomes embroiled with a power that alters Hitler’s plans and the course of history.

The author infuses a strong spiritual atmosphere into the narrative and makes readers feel as though they were experiencing the power of God, personally and physically. The writing is polished and it flows with unusual fluidity. JM Myrick has the gift of plotting and I enjoyed the intricacies in plot development, the surprises, and the sudden turns the reader experiences in the ride. The story is crafted to read like a thriller. The themes of war, terrorism, political machinations, and religion are crafted skillfully into the narrative. But it is the way that the author gets readers to experience an encounter with God that caught my attention. Arklight: Operation Nightfall is as inspiring as it is entertaining; a brilliant story.

Wow. This book blew me away.

It's been a long time since I've read a really, really good book, but this one definitely grabbed me. I love strong Christian novels, and this one is fantastic. With elements of classics like those by Dan Brown, mixed with the ever-popular Knights Templar legends, there wasn't much of a chance of me disliking this story.

Each chapter started with a scripture, guiding the reader in a clever way, eluding to what was coming up next, which I enjoyed immensely. The historical aspects seemed accurate and detailed, creating clear and crisp images for each scene. The author did a marvelous job of depicting each character, setting, and evolving tone throughout the book. Each page kept me hooked as to what was happening, needing to know what was going to happen next.

Likely to become a quick hit, I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Believer or not, any lover of conspiracy theory stories, time travel, or adventure in general, is sure to enjoy this book.

*I was given a complimentary eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.
