Marshall Hail was a husband, a father, a Physics Nobel Prize winner, and industrial billionaire. But when Hail's family was killed in a terrorist attack, he became a predator and redirected his vast industrial assets toward one goal - removing every person on the FBI's top 10 terrorist list.
With the help of his MIT colleagues, Hail designed and built a devastating arsenal of attack drones of all shapes and sizes that are flown by the nation's best young gamers. The world will come to realize that Marshall Hail possesses the capability of getting to anyone, anywhere, at any time - unleashing an operation so disturbing that the CIA has named it Operation Hail Storm.

Thanks to Michael Ashcraft for Wondeful Narration!
It was wonderful working with the new undiscovered talent, Michael Ashcraft. When I heard him read the samples of HAIL STORM, I was like "That's the voice or Marshall Hail". I was just hoping that he would agree to read the darn thing. And as luck would have it, he loved the book, we struck a deal, and we dove head first into the narration project.
I wrote Operation Hail Storm because my kids were having Rainbow Six being read in class. Their teacher had to stop reading Clancy's book because there were too many profanities in the novel.. I thought that I could write a great black ops type of book with less violence, but still a lot of action. Drone action! I wanted to have young people in the book and give it a military feel, but not be a military book.
My favorite scene is when the pirates try to board the Nucleus. There is an interesting dynamic where it is life and death to the pirates, yet it is almost a game for the Hail crew. This shows how advanced Hail's technology has become, where they don't really consider a mass of armed men as a threat.
My extreme reaction was joy, when Michael finished narrating the book,. I had many fans write me and ask me how long until the audio book. These days, many readers have turned into listeners. I happen to be one of those converts. I love listening to books while I drive my kids to different events. So finally, after months of hard work, when the book appeared on Audible, it was very satisfying to be able to write those people and tell them that HAIL STORM was ready to be heard.
I would like to thank all those who read the book and left great reviews. These days, It's really up to the readers and listeners, if the book becomes a hit or not. Please check back, because the next book in the series ,HAIL WARNING, is done and is in the editing phase. Hopefully, Mr. Ashcraft will agree to read book 2 as well.
Thanks, again for giving an unknown write (me) a shot at being known,
