Highway to Vengeance - Brian Springer

Brian Springer has been writing fiction for more than ten years, three of which were spent working with an agent at a major NY agency. Before he became a writer, he spent way too many years managing a Barnes and Noble sandwiched around stints as a financial planner and a baseball player in the Spanish Professional League. Prior to that, he spent four years at the University of San Diego playing baseball. He eventually graduated with a degree in Business Administration, and earned his MBA from USD shortly after. Currently, he lives in CA with his wife Kimberley and their two children.

Product description:
When ex-Navy SEAL Thomas Highway's wife is murdered right in front of his eyes, he sets out to find the men responsible. With the help of a covert government agency, he learns that  the former leader of a Mexican drug cartel was behind the hit. Now it's time to exact vengeance. But the conspiracy he uncovers runs far deeper than he ever imagined and now it's up to him to set things right.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It's a super-fast, hardboiled, action-packed thrill ride that doesn't ignore characterization. Plus they'll gain a more acute understanding of the Navy SEAL training program and learn what these guys have to go through in order to become such badasses.

Q: Why did you go indie?
I had an major agent from a huge NY agency for three years and he was unable to sell any of my books so I decided to take matters into my own hands.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Lee Child, Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Stephen Hunter, George Pelecanos.

  1. I love almost all of your favorite authors! Congrats on taking matters into your own hands--I think few people realize that having an agent doesn't necessarily mean having a book sold. Best of luck with the indie route!
