The little-known women of Hawaii recruited after Pearl Harbor to staff the islands' radar stations 

An extraordinary story inspired by the real Women’s Air Raid Defense, where an unlikely recruit and her sisters-in-arms forge their place in WWII history.

“A wow of a book…[that is] a captivating story of friendship, heartbreak and true love. Highly recommend!” —Karen Robards, New York Times bestselling author of The Black Swan of Paris
Amazon Editors’ Pick of the Month


Patrick Featherstone - hero of Sea of Fire - frantically tries to unravel a plot by North Korean terrorists to destroy the Tokyo Olympics.

Rings of Fire is another winner, a very current take on what’s going on in Japan. It’s a great follow up to Sea of Fire. Shepherd writes another fast paced, fast action, fast moving, hard to put down novel about Patrick Featherstone. If you loved Sea of Fire like I did, you’ll love Rings of Fire as well.
