Author Biography

Charles V. Breakfield holds a master's degree and works for a high-tech manufacturer as a solution architect, functioning in hybrid data/telecom environments. A long-time technology geek, Charles enjoys writing, studying World War II history, travel, and cultural exchanges. He's also a fan of wine-tastings, riding his Harley, cooking extravaganzas, and continues developing his woodworking skills.

Roxanne E. Burkey - Writing is a passion for Rox that incorporates many of her interests and dovetails nicely with her full time work in customer experience solutions. After successfully writing white papers and technology documentation she wanted a different more fun, less stress writing outlet. Her co-author Charles Breakfield agreed and The Enigma Series began. She enjoys learning, travel, family, outdoor activities, good food, wine sampling, reading, living, cooking, and visiting good friends which helps to bring diversity and new ideas into the stories. She is still learning humor and there is hope for this century that she will master it!

In The Enigma Ignite, 3rd in The Enigma Series by Charles V. Breakfield and Roxanne E. Burkey, defense contractor Keith Avery is working on a battlefield communications project that combines a wearable two-way communications unit and the use of drones. However, problems keep coming up, such as the weight of the unit. Avery thinks he has found the answer in the work of Su Lin, a Texas professor who has implanted a chip in a pig that can tell not only the pig’s location, but its weight, health, food intake, and more. Avery wants to adapt her ideas for battlefield technology. But soon, he and a subcontractor are kidnapped by two members of an Al Qaeda-offshoot group who will stop at nothing to obtain his secrets. It’s time for the R-Group, a family-based organization of do-gooders, with intimate knowledge of high finance, espionage and information technology, to try to rescue Keith. And while they’re at it, they have to transport Su Lin — and her pig — to a safe place!

The two authors of The Enigma Ignite are intimately involved in the world of high technology and it shows in their writing. Breakfield is a solution architect in hybrid data/telecom environments and Burkey works for improved customer experiences with a high-tech manufacturer. They also are adept in writing about the human element — for example, the interaction between Su Lin and her students. They also paint an interesting picture of the elite R-Group, whose members are multilingual and have access to great wealth. If you’re interested in espionage, high technology and thrillers, The Enigma Ignite is for you.
